Theroux

Reading time: 1 min

Louis Theroux, Monday nights, BBC2. Watch this man. This is the second series I have watched.

Last night the programme was looking at the Boers, there desire for their own state, and what the underlying thoughts were. Very interesting, and ultimately very depressing. There are still a lot of closed minds, and isolated figures in that country. If you ever catch any repeats of his last series make sure you catch the interview with the leader of the Klu Klux Klan.

As I am currently paying for the entire phone call when I use the Internet, I am using it as sparingly as possible. The adjustment (from the 24/7 unmetered access I had) has been brutal. I find myself starting up my PC at night. Doing some admin, mucking about with stuff I’ve been meaning to look at…. then shutting it down. I didn’t realise how much of my PC time was spent online – be it surfing, chatting, or Napstering!

Still I have been racing through the re-design, so once I get some form of affordable connection back (at end of October) I’ll put it up.

I’ve also been working on a site for the various bits and bobs I have collected that may be useful to people in a similar profession. Still to get a name I like, and at the moment it’s very early. I’m going to make an effort not to mention it again until it is done! Learning my lesson from the re-design of this site.
