Twitter is such a ball ache isn’t it (and I don’t even have balls). When Musk took over I thought it was too central to really collapse, but I’m beginning to think I was wrong; I find myself using it less and less, because it’s just less interesting, useful and funny with every passing day. Good luck with the new term.

Thanks for the update and like you I'm pleased that the current trend and predictions for BA.2.86 looks optimistic in its likely outcome. I fully understand the pressures of teaching a large class. In retirement I can reflect back on the annual pressure of having to organise and teach a practical class in Immunology to over 400 2nd year students on the combined Medical, Veterinary and Natural Sciences IB courses whilst at the same time lecturing to approximately 50 3rd year students on the part II Immunology course. This was compressed into a short period in October and November and during that time I had little spare time to devote to research or other activities. Then May would arrive and it would be time to examine all those same students! Both exhausting, but also rewarding at the same time!

You're really not missing much on Twitter, it seems to get worse in terms of good to bad content ratio each week.
