Regarding next week
There may be no Weekly Update next week. I am on holidays and may prefer to relax instead. But fear not: I'll definitely have the time to collect to weeks worth of links on August 29th, when we'll be on our way back home by train.
I somehow managed to forget this (I blame the temperature in the train) - thanks João for reminding me!
