Hooray for sci-hub when big, expensive, publishers' websites don't work properly

Linguistics of lying 

Some of our recent work has been on (human speech and) deception, e.g., doi.org/10.1111/cogs.12378 . I've started to think about "lying by telling the truth" (example: "you've been drinking" - "I had a beer" [they had several]). Anyone seen anything relevant in the Psych/Linguistics literature? (Even a name for this kind of lie?)

Dropbox and linux 

Nobody seems to have mentioned pCloud, which seemed to be gaining traction in other forums (fora, if you must). Any experiences?

Dropbox and linux 

Since there are a lot of techy people here: Anyone else about to be bitten by Dropbox's decision to drop (most) linux support? Any recommendations for alternatives, and (more importantly) has anyone managed to get a refund?

#Introduction 

I'm a psycholinguist in the School of Philosophy, Psychology, and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.
My research largely focuses on human speech: how it's produced, what goes wrong with it, and how it's understood in all its messiness. I'm proud that has an all- curriculum, and we're trying to do better too.
Nice to meet you all!
