War of the Worlds
Posted on 17 Aug 2004

It is with great joy that I see Steven Spielberg is due to direct a new version of The War of the Worlds

It is clear, after directing Close Encounters and E.T., that this would be a fabulous story for Steven to bring to a modern audience.

My only hope is that Steven will make the right choice and get Jeff Wayne to do the score. His amazing soundtrack for the film already has 115 five star reviews on Amazon. You must let Jeff Wayne do the music.

It's about time something as useful as pick-and-drop came along. I wonder why most of these PC flatscreens aren't touch sensitive.

I wanna rock...
Posted on 10 Jun 2004
Heavy metal! You rock! It's mostly about the
music instead of lyrics for you...but you
channel most of the emotion through the lyrics!
Mosh pit for you! Just be careful you don't
give yourself a concussion with so much

What genre of rock are you?

The British Computer Society
Posted on 29 May 2004
Got my details through from the British Computer Society this morning, I'm now an MBCS, which is the grade just before full chartered status.

They hold lots of "special interest" talks, such as the Advanced Programming SIG and the Computer Conservation Society as well as a monthly London meetup.
