Issue #351: supporter edition

Hi reader,

Thank you for those who sent kind messages after I found out about the untimely passing of my good friend, Dai Barnes. Your words helped a lot. We're planning a memorial episode of the TIDE podcast, so if you would like to contribute an audio tribute, please do so here.

Other than that, after an awesome holiday, it's back at it. While I am away for a long Bank Holiday weekend trip to my in-laws in Devon, nevertheless Thought Shrapnel is back to business as usual!

I appreciate your support 👍
