A blogging record ?

Well, that Radio 4 bloke - Eddie Mair - has started his own blog and plugged it on PM.

He's only made one 'testing testing' post, and yet has received over 130 comments.

This must be a record.

At last - he wins a race.

Just for the benefit of my one reader who just happens not to have a TV...

What a brilliant GP race today. Not only that but Jenson Button won.
The first British GP winner for over 3 years.

And he did it on merit, not because others dropped out.

Yes Schumaker and Alonso has penalties and so started far down the grid, but Jenson had a 10 place penalty as well (his engine blew up in practice)

He passed Schumaker, and was catching Alonso and would probably have passed him as well. Kimi was about to be passed by Pedro when he went out, and Jenson beat Pedro.

So he didn't just win because the others guys weren't in it.

It was such a good race (and result!) that I'm off to watch it again on the highlights !!!

Wot no blog post ?

Well despite my determination to write here more often, I'm not going to again tonight.

I have plenty of things half formed in my mind that I want to write, but I think going to bed is more important at the moment.

What's more scary is that I've spent less than an hour online today. In fact just checking my email and the forums I moderate.

Writing this pointless post has actually made me stay here longer than I intended.

See - I'm not addicted to the internet. I can give up anytime I want.

More tomorrow ;-)

Naked Woman in Ubuntu

Well according to James Galvin and his blog post there is a picture of a naked woman as one of the random screen savers in the default setup of Ubuntu!

Not what you'd expect to find in a default configuration of an operating system.

The question is, will I spend more time waiting for this to pop up than I spent looking for the teapots in NT4 ?!?!?!?

Hmmm Naked Women or teapots - another point to linux over Microsoft I think.
