Hit and run

Peter is considering a widescreen TV and reminded me of one of the advantages in owning one. Namely, on a news channel, you can watch the production assistant crawl in to view at one side and discretely push some papers up onto the desk all the while oblivious to the fact that he is ‘on screen’. OK, it only happened once but it was very funny.

Dentist was fine, which is always a relief. I think this stems from my childhood trips where I’d receive, on every visit, a filling or three. Looking back I do wonder if the dentist was just in it for the money – you do hear these stories – and I do get a bit annoyed that he has tainted the whole dentist thing for me. My current dental practise is a joy. They phone you up the night before to remind you about your appointment (just as well in my case), and both my dentist and the hygienist are friendly and … well this may sound a bit odd, but they treat you like an adult. They don’t seem to have that power thing going on, which several previous dentists of mine have had. This may, or may not, have something to do with the fact that they are both ladies.

Lyle is, rightly, upset with WordPress (the language may offend, but you knew that, right?). I have to agree with him on this issue. As I mentioned in a comment on his site, it does seem to be a bit of a developer playground at the moment and whilst I think it is an excellent and very usable product, the next release seems to be adding in functionality for functionality’s sake. Never a good thing.

Still at least somebody is having a good day.
