I’m a compulsive note taker, especially at work. However as I’ve never really found a system that ‘works’ for me I find myself swapping between various downloaded ‘note’ applications, using text files, using Outlook notes (never stick with them for very long), and this strange new 3D medium I’ve found called pen and paper (it’s…

Speakeasy appears to be a blog again. This is good and bad news. Good in that it was one of the first blogs I really got into, bad in that the old style magazine format is gone. Either way, reading what Carey writes is ALWAYS good. Listening to: Radiohead – No Surprises

Middle Lane Morons. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!! Why? Is there something wrong with the left-hand lane? I’ve heard a few excuses for this, but the usual seems to be a ‘comfort zone’ thing. The middle lane driver prefers driving there as there is plenty of room round them and they can overtook some cars…

Which only serves to make me wonder what the definition of a ‘reportable’ accident is, a broken fingernail perhaps, or a…

Model plane sets record with 1,888-mile Atlantic flight (via Pat). Amazing stuff, even if it does make a mockery of my childhood efforts (2.4m before stalling, crashing to the ground and breaking a wing).
