  • On an 85, which always feels like it takes ages on its roundabout route. Not sure how much of that is perception & how much is reality. #
  • Fantastic meal at The Leatherne Bottel on Sunday. Scallop & salmon with quails eggs, then pork belly followed by French and English cheeses. #
  • Hurrah for the staff at St Anne’s Square Starbucks who found and kept safe my credit card. God bless them every one, to put it seasonally. #

  • I thought the New York Times was supposed to be entirely open now? I’ve just hit two articles on my Palm which were behind the login wall. #
  • The rented MacBook has arrived in the kind of case I had assumed was reserved for nuclear triggers. #
  • Sitting back and twiddling my thumbs while I wait for the hard drives to clone, preparatory to installing my setup on the rented MacBook. #
  • Not impressed with the LaCie d2 quadra harddrive. It sounds like someone is speed carving the data onto a rockface with a pneumatic drill. #
  • The concierge for booking ap’ts at the Apple shop is awful, no way of submitting the further info & then the page auto-forwards unexpectedly #
  • Noticing the lower responsiveness in this rented MacBook: 2gB memory vs 4gB, makes a fair difference. #
