So Who's Interests DO You Represent??

There is something deeply rotten here.  Bad enough that the RIAA, in its desperate death throes, is suing its customers (see earlier post) but it would appear that they cannot even pass the monies collected to the artists on whose behalf they purport to act. It is long past time that everyone realised that the […]

American Gods

Neil Gaiman, currently famous for having written the novel (now a film), Stardust, has just announced that his famous novel, American Gods, is now available free and online, here. Coincidentally, I finished reading the book last week (in original, bought and paid for, paperback form) and I enjoyed it immensely.  It is a magnificent, big, […]

Rikki O'Neill – Digital Artist

  Part of my occasional series on great photography.  Rikki O’Neill works with digital equipment to produce some astounding, ethereal images.  Such wonderful light.  I particularly liked the following which are on Adobe Flash Player on the site: meandmum; seaboat; vase; boat-and-tree2; castlehuntlymistbw … and many others.  Well worth a look. Just for the record, […]

WorldWide Telescope, created with Microsoft’s high-performance Visual […]

Politicians' Expenses – A Voice of Reason?

I have no love of politicians as a breed.  I tend to believe in the adage that those most likely to do well in office are those least likely to seek it.  The opposite all too often seems also to be true; that those most likely to seek office are those least likely to deserve […]

The Coming of the Dragons

I’m not often moved to write about James’ bedtime stories but The Coming of Dragons is a great book.  We’ve just started it (up to Chapter 4) and what strikes me is the fabulous language; so richly descriptive and evocative.  The book’s web-site includes an extract: "Black. Then blinding white. White like split bone. Then […]

Sony Vaio Design Fault

Much as I love my Sony Vaio NR, I have discovered a frustrating design fault.  The Power button, on the top right face of the keyboard is directly over the cooling vent which provides a steady stream of warm air. This manifests itself as a problem particularly during intense periods of work when, in a […]
