but isn't it just wonderful that Bryant has found so much time to interfere in another country's business
Bryant does only what he was instructed for.
BTW, do you know about a single spot on earth where the USA doesn't interfere in another country's business?
In comparison, World4Brexit is rather harmless. In many other parts of the world millions of people had to pay with their lives and still do...
Probably Zimbabwe.

FWIW, I've still yet to have time to thoroughly study either French or German as I'd intended. Work is having me do a lot of hours. Has been for 3 years now.

US now seeking social media details from all visa applicants

The State Department is now requiring nearly all applicants for U.S. visas to submit their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers. It's a vast expansion of the Trump administration's enhanced screening of potential immigrants and visitors.

[...]

Social media, email and phone number histories had only been sought in the past from applicants who were identified for extra scrutiny, such as people who'd traveled to areas controlled by terrorist organizations. An estimated 65,000 applicants per year had fallen into that category.

[...]

The new rules apply to virtually all applicants for immigrant and nonimmigrant visas.... The new visa application forms list a number of social media platforms and require the applicant to provide any account names they may have had on them over the previous five years. They also give applicants the option to volunteer information about social media accounts on platforms not listed on the form.
My next trip to USA will occur early next year. We'll see how bad it is. Already, there is a requirement in place that people's smartphones, tablets, and ereaders should be charged so that they switch on upon the officials' request when they want to take a look at/into them. If not, get lost.

By these rules, a trip to USA has become about as inconvenient as a trip to Russia.

Hopefully my fellow citizens will have enough sense to throw asshole m'f'er out next November. Perhaps Bloomberg can gather some momentum?

None of the state department's business regarding your social media, etc.

What a time to be alive. Never ending Brexit, Trump lurching from one controversy or crisis to another.......and now it can be revealed that the current outgoing governor of the US state of Mississippi has been fiddling and diddling with the Brexit process. It should be noted that Bryant created the "Royal Commonwealth Society USA" (that should thrill @rjhowie ) several years ago.

Oh yes; MS can be 50th in everything out of 50 states, save religious aspects, but isn't it just wonderful that Bryant has found so much time to interfere in another country's business (and bring one state back into the Commonwealth?)

Bob Norris, Marlboro Man and Colorado Springs
philanthropist, dies

At one point, his ranch was selected as the location for
a Marlboro cigarette ad. When advertising agency
executives arrived, with their models and Western wear,
they saw a more authentic cowboy in Norris, and asked
him to star as the Marlboro Man. He appeared in ads for 
the next dozen years. Ironically, Norris never smoked.
Never smoked. And died. Double sad news.

If you mean right-click>View source, then this opens up a a coloured source viewer. I do not know if the colour theme there can be tweaked.

By "just humanly readable" do you mean that the source of some pages is uncoloured? It would be nice to see an example of this. Perhaps non-HTML raw plain text pages are like that.

For me the colour theme in Otter's inbuilt source viewer is good enough and it's nice that Ctrl+scroll changes the font size, but of course it would be even nicer if the colours could be tinkered somewhere.

A good option in Otter would be the ability to open the source in external programs, something that Opera had, e.g.
opera:config#UserPrefs|RunSourceViewerInTerminal
opera:config#UserPrefs|SourceViewer
opera:config#UserPrefs|SourceViewerMode

You mean like what you get with right click, inspect element?
