New book marketing materials.

Updated metre readings.

Fixed the db after server maintenance killed mariadb.

Finished Tech World by B.V. Larson.

Births have dropped below 1 million in Japan. Some good points in the comments. We really do need to think about dealing with the fact that the current economy depends on constant population growth. Also in case of Japan their closed culture doesn't help. While I don't believe in dumping tons of fresh migrants/refuges in one place and inadvertently creating ghettos of foreign culture, I do think there is plenty of room for migration, especially when the immigrants have all the intentions to integrate into the society they are moving to.

I spent half the day dealing with Polish bureaucracy. Sorted my name change, marriage certificate and Zack's birth certificate. Unfortunately that was the end of good news. To get his passport we need to get him a PESEL number, and that requires getting him a permanent address registration. They really make it hard for him to become a proper passport wielding citizen.
