  • Dr Sharleena is taking driving lessons as we speak. May the force be with her (and with those crossing her path on the road).
  • Tomorrow I get to have my obligatory work-related bi-annual medical check-up. If you don’t find me posting here within two days (at the most), it means something went terribly wrong when the Doc asked me to “look up and cough”.
  • I’m writing this while listening to Carla Bruni‘s “Quelqu’un M’a Dit”. Check her out; she’s got some brilliant songs, as well as a voice to die for.
  • You are still more than welcome to contribute to The Voice Of Cheese. Just drop a note, and I’ll get back to you when your contribution is up next.
  • The switch from winter to summer hour has been a pain in the butt. The people who enforced this should be shot forced to watch As The World Turns episodes until they choke.
  • The Trap, which had its final chapter aired last night, is one of the finest (BBC) documentaries I’ve seen in recent years [wikipedia]. It describes the path from Game Theory through to the concept of positive versus negative liberty. Food, as they say, for thought.

    Good luck with the driving Dr Sharleena.
    Good luck with the medical Barry.
    You can keep Carla Bruni thanks
    My VOC is coming but I am waiting for our-man-on-the-wiki Propellerkuh’s contribution which, judging by the CDs of his stuff he sent me, should be a stonker.
    How do you get to see BBC stuff? Is it via the cable TV that you all have over there? Re: The Trap – see this.

    We get BBC 1 and 2 on cable here yes (no 3 or 4 — why, I wonder?). Good article you linked to btw.

    Thanks, Duncan.
    I don’t know if you are aware, but several countries of the EU are considering the possibility of a special subsidy intended to forbid me to attemp to drive my own vehicle, in the future (for the sake of everyone). That won’t scare me tho.
    I will overcome!
