Linkblogging for 8/2/15

Sorry for the comparative silence for a few days. I had a migraine that lasted longer than most do, and that’s mucked up my brain chemistry enough that I’m not thinking straight (made a real idiot of myself on Twitter earlier, for example). I should be back properly tomorrow, and I’ve got a week off which I intend to spend mostly writing, so should build up a decent backlog of posts, but for now, have links:
