Giocoso 1.10 Released ... And Ukraine Invaded

Well, it seems a bit superfluous to release a slightly-modified version of Giocoso on the day Russia decided to invade Ukraine, on zero rational, reasonable pretext.

But I'm going to do it anyway, albeit briefly: version 1.10 is out, with a new --autocolor (or --autocolour) option. This simply applies the Monopoly™ colour combinations mentioned in the post announcing version 1.09 in a sequential manner, depending on what day of the week it is. If it's a Monday, you'll get Old Kent Road colours; if it's a Tuesday, it'll be the light blues of the Angel Islington; Wednesdays will be Pall Mall purple; Thursdays will be Vine Street Orange; Fridays the scarlet of the Strand; and Saturdays will be the bright yellows of Piccadilly. Finally, on Sundays, you'll get the rich green of Bond Street. All the colours occur in sequence, as though you were traveling around the Monopoly™ board progressively. Unfortunately, because Monopoly™ has 8 colour sets and there are only 7 days in a week, the Park Lane/Mayfair colours would never ordinarily be used by the autocolor option, but I've added an extra bit of calculation: if it's the first day of a month, regardless of what day of the week it is, those Mayfair colours will be used anyway.

Upgrading is simply a matter of running the command giocoso --checkver.

I have no idea whether Ukraine is going to be able to resist the Russian invasion effectively or not -but I sincerely hope they do, without vast loss of life. Unfortunately, I've already seen evidence that a bazillion fifth columnists from the land of Facebook who believe it's all NATO's fault. Or something. Because they're idiots, suffering from severe Dunning-Kruger. And I frankly cannot understand what is happening to our civilisation when I see such utter nuttery.

So, never mind Giocoso updates. Хай живе Україна!
