I have a new old camera! A Fujifilm F30 for £90.50 off eBay, to replace the F20 the older teen inadvertently broke. These usually go on eBay for more than the original new price, because they do high ISO better than anything even now; this one was so cheap because the lettering is largely worn off. Camera's eminently functional, though.

After [personal profile] ideological_cuddle's tip, I am trying offlineimap for GMail archiving, which is so far pretty much exactly the right answer, except one message that causes an almost-reliable crash (and which the devs are quite interested in fixing, because crashing on a flaky server is bad).

Bored? Decide you're offended by advertising and mark every ad on Facebook "offensive". Shortly thereafter: no ads for you.

The production on John Cale's Paris 1919 is ridiculously overblown, but it sounds like there should be a good album under it all. I've been writing a bit of Rocknerd of late; wonder if anyone will care about one-liner reviews of ancient albums.

My daughter is, of course, a genius. She insisted on dancing around the room to "The Man Whose Head Expanded". On Saturday she got her toy snake to eat her apple: only three and she's already solved Abrahamic religion!

So much for Hugo Chávez's bold Bolivarian revolution. I wonder if Quito will ever get that bad, assuming Correa manages to keep going down the path to Chávezhood, although he's been bleeding allies for the last year, so i hope not.

AND CHIPS.

I.... can't see any pickles, onions or a sesame seed bun. That's not a Big Mac. Probably worthy of the name. No wonder their company spokesperson died.

wonder if anyone will care about one-liner reviews of ancient albums.

They will if you make it a Tumblr.

JG Ballard...and the Economist? I can only relate him to Concrete Island, which I enjoyed.

And Chips: OMG, this was made for Fat Tuesday!

Your daughter is the smartest person on the planet. I am sure of it.

Great idea about the ads. Interesting (and sad) article about the squatters in the skyscraper.

And the picture of the Heart Attack Grill special? OUTSTANDING!
