Looks good to me - unfortunately the Overseas subscription rate looks rather too high. Ten pounds an issue is probably not worth it for 96 pages even it is on archival quality paper. Stand price is $9.95 - maybe someone should buy up a few copies and ship them over in bulk.

Anyway, I hadn't heard of any of them so there wasn't anything to say really.

"Some are having difficulty accepting the fact that God would allow someone they loved, believed in, trusted and followed to be taken from them in such a horrible and abrupt manner right before their very eyes, like a frat house spectacle Christian bashers might stage for a Halloween gag, leaving who knows how many traumatized for life."

I've always wanted to try playing vibes and last night I had a go! Fantastic, now I really want a set, but they are somewhat expensive sadly. Someone suggested that it would be relatively simple to build an entirely electronic set of vibes and I think it would, though I don't know enough about how you would work the "bars" to detect how heavily they were struck. Might be a fun project though. If anyone understands the technologies taht might be involved do fill me in on them.

I wonder if I should start charging $5 to post comments? I wanted to post a comment to a thread on Metafilter that was as usual going on about Edison inventing the lightbulb. As you all know of course he did not invent the lightbulb, and, as you also know, I get really, really annoyed by the fact that people keep claiming he did. Anyhow, I was going to sign up to Metafilter to post a comment and they wanted $5. Bugger that for a pound of tomatoes. And this is nearly turning into the sort of long rambling post about nothing that you find on weblogs that are not "old style". Maybe I should give it a title. How about Duke?

I mentioned atiki the other day - I tried it and got very poor quality resutls from it, so so far I am not impressed, though I may need to go and do some work on the queries. I was going to say something (negative!) about another site I am trying out but I just remembered in time that they asked people not to say anything about it.

Now I need to work out a way of indicating that there are trackbacks (I know: why? Well, just because...) since there are now three (one of them a recursive one from me though) And when the trackback spam starts then they'll go away anyway.

Bifurcated Rivets seen at Beamish Notice the large cardboard box behind the tin! I don't have one of those. I wonder what the box underneath the tin is - I don't have one like that either. (Cardboard packaging is hard to get hold of - people sling it out, whereas the tend to keep tins which have other uses) I shall have to go down to Beamish and have a look in person.

The little trackback thing is just supposed to be the source of the URL to which you should trackback - if you click it, you get an error because what is sent is not a trackback. I'll make it do something different.

I wonder if I should make the little footprint things make a popup that sends a trackback. In fact nobody has sent a trackback since I added the feature. Not one. I suppose if I had titles and long rambling posts about my life and other stuff....

Tonight I made a ratatouille of courgettes, yellow tomatoes and artichoke hearts. I added a teaspoonful of ginger cordial to it which gave it an interesting kick. Served with lemon flavoured pitta bread and green lentils cooked with onions garlic and mushrooms, I added sage to this as well as cumin, ginger and turmeric and P. said that it tasted like stuffing to her, but I liked it.

Good trick, though what's with the OTT reactions from the "audience"? It's a trick not some kind of miracle. Now, if he did it without the paper being held up in front of it that would be something. And how many shills? The guy inside with him must be one, and presumably the people holding the paper too since they're going to see or feel something about how it works.

Over at Boing Boing they are raving about some new SF book but the sample given seems to suffer from a large number of the faults that were on that list doing the rounds recently. Why would someone in the future be called Magister? Why do we need the little economics lesson? Why all the (unlikely) invented terminology? I suppose this is why I never read science fiction.

I see that there is a new move to get the soldiers executed for "cowardice" in the First World War pardoned (reading their stories makes me genuinely angry). I ferverently hope that this time it is successful - it won't do anything to help anyone much but it will at least get governemnt to admit that there was great wrong done.

Qinopio asked about tea in a comment, and in particular the Twining's Prince of Wales' tea that I linked to an advert for. I have never come across that tea before so I have no idea what it is like. Clearly it's in a teabag, which I only use when camping anyway! (I'm wondering now how many people didn't get the joke in the advert - it may be a rather British joke now I come to think of it!). I did discuss my tea preferences before, to recap : I use a 50/50 blend of Nilgiri and Darjeeling A which I make myself. (Which is probably the most pretentious thing you will hear anyone say today) Of the commercial teas, I do like Earl Grey. I am not keen on the smoky Lapsang style of tea.

Flock is really just a cutdown Firefox at the moment. It runs fast (presumably from being cutdown) but the extra features it claims to make it different aren't really that useful : since I don't use del.icio.us, flikr or a blogging service, integration of these gives me nothing. (Indeed, many people are saying the firefox plugins for these systems work better) I certainly can't see any magic Web 2.0 fairydust sprinkled round it anywhere.

The little feety things give you the trackback URL for an item. Why you should want this I don't really know, but never mind. And of course, as always, if you don't know what I'm talking about then you don't need to know. (Though of course that rule doesn't apply to my lectures, quite the reverse - it's me who doesn't know what I'm talking about in those)

I Unsubscribe - good piece. I am starting to see way too much stuff. Bloglines is good in that it aggregates all my stuff in one place that I can connect too from the different machines I use (if I used only one machine I would prefer a proper application though). But what it doesn't do is the essential filtering : removing duplicate items (or aggregating them) and not showing me stuff I have seen before. This alone would cut down stuff by 50% I reckon. Do I have to sit down and right this myself I wonder? (Hey, this might be the killer Web 2.0 app!)
