Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Steam Punk

This term, in case you don't know, relates to a growing interest in antique technology - in particular, its appearance.

How about this for a computer keyboard?

This was manufactured by Datamancer, whose strapline reads: "Prestidigital Datamancery & Paraphernalic Technofetishism."

For the purist, how about a converted typewriter that still types? It's been done.

A small search directed me to, amongst many strange things, this splendid eccentric with his mechanical tiger...

Hold that tiger!

Until the next time
