That explains why it showed up when I typed gregster's full name but not at all with your name. :)

Thanks for working on this! Much appreciated.

Nice, @joedf :thumbup:

Seems like AHK should regularly appear on such lists based on its merits, so it's probably due to a lack of publicity that it is often not mentioned. I don't know if the AutoHotkey Foundation has or ever has had plans to do some PR, but perhaps there are ways to help get AHK's name out there. I realize the foundation members are all volunteers, and there are probably not any significant funds to work with. Maybe people would contribute dollars/time to an effort to help promote it if a thread regarding a funding drive were created. I would support such an effort. Not trying to create work for anyone and I definitely don't expect anyone to do more than they are already doing to keep everything going. Just throwing the thought out there.

(as an aside, the way I was able to add @joedf as a mention from the Digi Orange theme was by manually typing the mention tags)

https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/Great-Horse-Manure-Crisis-of-1894/

By the late 1800s, large cities all around the world were “drowning in horse manure”.
In order for these cities to function, they were dependent on thousands of horses for the transport of both people and goods.
In 1900, there were over 11,000 hansom cabs on the streets of London alone.
There were also several thousand horse-drawn buses,each needing 12 horses per day,
making a staggering total of over 50,000 horses transporting people around the city each day.

The streets of London were beginning to poison its people.

But this wasn’t just a British crisis: New York had a population of 100,000 horses producing around 2.5m pounds of manure a day.
This problem came to a head when in 1894, The Times newspaper predicted… “In 50 years, every street in London will be buried under nine feet of manure.”
This became known as the ‘Great Horse Manure Crisis of 1894’.
The terrible situation was debated in 1898 at the world’s first international urban planning conference in New York, but no solution could be found.
It seemed urban civilisation was doomed.
However, necessity is the mother of invention, and the invention in this case was that of motor transport.
Henry Ford came up with a process of building motor cars at affordable prices.
Electric trams and motor buses appeared on the streets, replacing the horse-drawn buses.
By 1912, this seemingly insurmountable problem had been resolved; in cities all around the globe,
horses had been replaced and now motorised vehicles were the main source of transport and carriage.



https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/The-London-Beer-Flood-of-1814/

The London Beer Flood of 1814
On Monday 17th October 1814, a terrible disaster claimed the lives of at least 8 people in St Giles, London.
A bizarre industrial accident resulted in the release of a beer tsunami onto the streets around Tottenham Court Road.


https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryMagazine/DestinationsUK/Farting-Lane/

Lurking around the back of the world famous Savoy lies an ingenious – if not slightly nauseating – piece of Victorian engineering; London’s last remaining sewage lamp.
The Webb Patent Sewer Gas Lamp was invented in the late 19th century by the Birmingham inventor Joseph Webb. In London the lamps were used for two main reasons;
firstly to burn off the smells and germs from London’s sewer system, and secondly as a low cost, low maintenance way to keep London lit up at night.

We are going to get out of this Coronavirus mess eventually but not without proper testing. In the United States, we have weeks if not months to go before wide scale testing even begins. John Oliver provides an excellent summary of what is going on. Yes, there is NSFW strong language. Watch it anyway.

BNOLI, I only think that's a shame what happens in the US to the people. Ruthless, cold in the heart. The sociology of a society and politics devoted to money.

The American authorities are faster than authorities in the rest of the world! All over the world there is a days-long gap between receipt, processing and assignment of a death certificate to those who died from the Corona Virus.
I have read that this process is usually between ?2 days? and up to 14 days. I suspect the deadliest day was at some point during this period! So generally not in the last 24 hours.
This is a statistical bias and I think that a country should be more careful with such reports.

Yep, there's "so much winning!". Let's guess all over the world they care for more important things first ...
And btw, this isn't a numbers game. :lolno:

The United States just reported its deadliest day for coronavirus patients as states reopen. 2,909 deaths in the last 24 hours.
https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/05/02/who-us-just-reported-deadliest-day-for-coronavirus.html

If you live in the United States and you want to know what your state (or nearby state) is doing, here is more information.
https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2020/us/states-reopen-coronavirus-trnd/

Correction: Changed from 2,909 "new cases" in the last 24 hours to 2909 "deaths" in the last 24 hours.
