still refusing to prioritise

Also on the earworm playlist at the moment; MC Honky's Sonnet no. 3 (Like a Duck). Just wanted to share.

If you can't read your old versions, somebody else will: the e-gov bulletin describes the NHS's deployment of Sun's Java Desktop system as "the first large-scale public sector defection from Microsoft desktop software" (probably meaning, in the UK). According to Richard Barrington (Sun's head of government affairs and public policy) lower cost isn't the only reason to switch to a mix of software suppliers; "We've had to work very hard to make our products access data stored in old Microsoft formats for example. We know of some government bodies that access this data using Star Office because Microsoft's new products like XP can't do it."

Oh no! Continuity crisis hits the picky picky game as inexpicably the artists favour Antons the public liked, but not quite enough to vote them in. I'm smug because I remembered to hedge my bets (see right) but my urge towards double entendre has left them heading fast towards that "goodnight everybody!" moment. This week, your task (if you chose to accept it) is to keep the Picky Picky game out of the gutter. Or not. Weren't we just talking about naked blue men? Anyway ...

I've not been doing anything interesting. I've been faffing around all day and drinking vodka and writing a comic at night. That's right, a long comic. Many pages.

Whores of Mensa is selling out. Order now ...

Question 1: Is the comic related to Woody Allen's Whore Of Mensa?
Question 2: Do I get a discount if I am a Slighty Lewd Member of Mensa...but not nearly a whore?
And finally, Question 3: Do you have access to a VCR that will play American Videos?

1. We swiped the name from Woody Allen. Shh, don't tell.
2. Your lewdness (or otherwise) is you own affair, but WOM is also available for swaps, speaking of which ...
3. Yes, why?

I know you all across the pond do get lots of american programming, however...we here in the forsaken colonies (oh yeah right, we beat you guys, didn't we?) have a 24/7 cartoon network that has a late evening block of programming called "adult swim." It's a mixture of r-rated anime and home-grown stuff like a super-hero box of french fries. I interpreted a panel discussion of the creators and voices of some of these and was amused/grossed out/offended/fascinated/inspired by lots of it. Thought you might enjoy seeing it. When I get enough on tape, I'll let you know and you can decide if you are ready for "Tom Goes To The Mayor," et. al.

oh yeah!
we do get a lot of American programming but not the fabled Adult Swim! ... oh, and send me your address and I'll send you some comics, incl. WOM.

the Picky Picky game has to stay OUT of the gutter? Oh, man... "some of us are looking at the stars" indeed!
Much Admiration.

well, there's no compulsion there ...
feel free to climb into the gutter, if that's what the story needs ...
