Boxing day is inevitably a matter of recovery, possibly exercise and cold turkey both literally and metaphorically. Livening up cold turkey is one of the key post-christmas skills and I will give one of the best recipes on Monday, but for Boxing day its a matter of keeping things simple. I always plan to cook […]
An excellent evening – we issued an invitation to network members to join current course members for an evening meet in a pub. A good number turned out and lot of good conversation ensued. It was also a very natural event, a convivial gathering of old friends, and new ones. Good conversation, updates on what […]
I visit Switzerland from time to time (not enough really). In contrast with elsewhere in the world WiFi access from Swisscom is not the normal rip off. You know how that is, you are in an airport or train station and the minimum fee is a full day or an hour at a high rate. […]

I was pleased to see my cynicism about the Guardian “science correspondent” picked up by people who know far more about these sort of experiments than I do. See here for a well written account of the experiment, and the limits of the conclusions that can be drawn.
It is reported that one in six of US laptop sales was an Apple this June on NPD sales (retailers). Its overall market share at 5.6% (taking into account direct channels etc) put it in joint third place. My impression is that it has replaced the Thinkpad as the quality laptop of choice. I am […]
