24 degrees celsius now. I must say I hate the heat and I shouldn't give out because every one else seems to love it. It's the humidity that gets to me. I really am a winter person :-)

Fifty year view

Fifty years back, which is 1967, I distinctly remember three of us discussing what the computers we'd use would be like eventually. We got as far as every home would have one and they'd be built into a desk. We had push buttons on them and banks of lights, but no keyboard. We weren't sure what they'd be used for. I wrote my first FORTRAN program the year after.

Anyway, now we know. We weren't remotely close to being right. We had a failure of imagining just across fifty years'... [Read More]

Finsbury Park attack: Man dies as van hits worshippers - BBC News

It seems the far right is getting more involved in outright terrorism nowadays. It sort of makes sense: both they and the Islamic extremists want to drive the communities apart, and all these are straightforward acts of terror designed to do just that, from both sides.

Today is my 70th birthday, Forum Garden has already wished me well, thank you.

Anyway.......a couple of months ago my wife totally innocently dropped into conversation about a surprise party and how did I think about it ?
I asked her "Should you be telling me this ?"
So for the past couple of weeks I have had to pretend in conversation with my daughters.

I am officially going out for dinner with one of my daughters tonight at about 7-7.30... [Read More]

pain in shoulder?

Aura's Avatar
I hope this is the right forum.

Last week I had a pain in my right shoulder which first appeared briefly about 2 years ago. I saw my dr who said it was frozen shoulder, from time to time it it would twinge, then nothing much.

Last week the pain got bad so I made an emergency appointment with the Dr who gave me some Ibrofen gel, I had been using Voltero which is 5%, this gel is apparently 10%. I have curvature of the spin and the pain in my arm was very painful,... [Read More]

Exit Tim Farron pursued by a delusion

Jun 14, 2017 - 10:42 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
Quite why Tim Farron has resigned the Liberal leadership I'm not sure. He had someone's dog shot on Dartmoor? Unlikely. Clapham Common? No. I don't know much about him, I know even less about who could take over in his place. Where are the Jo Grimonds, the Mighty David Steels of yesteryear? What became of the party of Gladstone?

He can't manage being party leader at the same time as remaining faithful to Christ, apparently.

I knew it takes all sorts, but I hadn't known... [Read More]

Following the amount of TV coverage of the Westminster, London Bridge and today the Grenfell fire,are the live interviews and continual graphic reports too much too soon and in the worst possible tabloid news tradition ?

I looked on eBay to see what exists to teach basic electronics and it's all there, all from the Far East, all extremely cheap.

The best bit is the header power supply, it's the MB102. For under £3 you can have one delivered, with a 400-hole breadboard and pin-ended patch wires. The supply switches between 3.3 or 5 volts and easily provides a stable quarter amp drain. It can take power from a 6V or 12V PSU,... [Read More]

Trump is DOOMed

Don't get excited, nothing yet seems to rise to the level of impeachment.

To be clear, I see nothing good about the impeachment of a president unless it leads to a conviction in the Senate, which doesn't look likely.

I just love to watch the trump train wreck and the storm of tweets to come.
