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!

Wonderful - I Love It!

I have just been reading on Wired.com about Claude Elwood Shannon, described in the article as the "father of information theory" a description thta appears to be entirely justified, judging by the content of the article which of course lists Shannon's many achievements.

But for me, the thing "wot swung it" was the wonderful toy this genius had on his desk, described as "The Ultimate Machine".

I want one!

Please send me one - somebody.

Untilm the next time.
