How can you tell if a blog has turned into a deadblog? Or when its owner is just too busy?

I expect to get back to regular blogging by the end of June. Meanwhile, from time to time, … perhaps something.

smashed computer monitor

If whatever I did to my PC looked like this, I might know why it doesn’t work. I move the PC less than two miles, no problem; I move the PC less than two feet, argh!

All my files trapped. 😦 Back next week!

Paddington Station was pretty busy on Friday evening. I’d timed my arrival there to catch the first “cheap” (which only means cheaper than standard fare) train out. So there’s the crowd for the 6.45pm train standing around, watching the departures board. The lights change and spell out “Platform 4”. It’s a lineout: they chuck the information overhead, and whoever catches it first gets to run for the best seat.
