My home PC is now some 5 years old. A geriatric which is showing noticeable signs of old age. So I’m looking for a cheap way to get something new. I mainly use the home PC for email, surfing, designing web sites (sorry, mucking about with HTML), a little graphic work, letter writing and listening to MP3s. Do I really need a PC?

Apple – Switch is trying to convince me otherwise, and I must say it is very persuasive. I’ve got a mate who just purchased a G4, I think a visit is called for to see what all the fuss is about. Maybe…

I’m actually an ‘old’ Mac user – Mac Plus and SE (this followed on from old BBC MicroComputers), so it might be fun to see how far they have come as, bar a brief flirtation with a PowerPC about 3 years ago, I’ve not touched a Mac for ohhh 10 years? Probably longer.

Hmmm whaddya think?

Had dinner at my parents yesterday and one topic came up that I’ve been meaning to mention here, that damned BBC IQ Test. Seems like I’m not the only one who disagreed with the way it was done, but rather than replicate other people’s comments, I’ll just let you read what she said. I couldn’t have said it better.

Tom finds a few interesting articles on BBC News 24, rather than re-list them here, check his list at plasticbag.

BBC Four launched yesterday with the tagline “Everybody needs a place to think”. The first thing it made me think of was ‘What happened to BBC Three?

A quick puzzler for you, what’s the second verse of Jack and Jill (UK version please)… spent all afternoon trying to remember, so I looked it up, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t the version I remember as a child “old Dame Dob??”.

I’m not going to write any more about school shootings in the U.S. The BBC are of the same opinion as me, ban the guns, and stop rolling out the ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ argument, it’s just plain insulting. One thing this kind of tragedy does give is a sense of perspective, but it is worrying how easily we forget and move on these days, no longer do these sort of events linger in the news. Front page one day, almost forgotten the next. Have we become so self-centred that we don’t care what happens our fellow man?
