Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
This season's greetings to all our customers, friends and associates past, present and future. We wish you an enjoyable festive period. To those of you fed up with the current TV fair, at the end there is a link at the end that I hope amuses. It concerns birds that have forgotten how to fly and a bird that done this so well, it has forgetten it has forgotten how to fly... Oh before you just randomly click through the link at the end: a bit how I found it.
As some of you know, I've moved home. Still in Henley. The "new" place suffers from somewhat ancient wiring. Still that is a project for the New Year. There are very few new houses in Henley. Also, Henley (in general) has quite poor Freeview reception.
Chalk and cheese to BT. Any company that thinks so highly of customer support that is bases it nearly as close to the other side of the earth or to put it another way: about as far away as it can whist retaining it on planet earth, speaks for its-self.
So a laptop has been doing service in place of the restricted broadcast service. Not that I watch much live TV anyway. I've been quite impressed by the range of stuff on YouTube. So when YouTube popped up with a suggestion about a Douglas Adams lecture I clicked on. For those of you who do not know, Steven Fry, zoologist Mark Carwardine and Douglas Adams have (or had in Douglas Adams case) a common interest in threatened species. This resulted in a nicely off the wall series called "A last chance to See" Wiki entry is here. The YouTube suggestion is an original presentation by the late Douglas Adams. Curiously this is not referenced by the wiki article or the BBC page, so I bring them together here.
