Got it in a nutshell:

"If one candidate is trying to scare you and the other is trying to get you to think, if one candidate is appealing to your fears and the other one is appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the one who wants you to think and hope."

-- Bill Clinton


John Peel is apparently dead. This just seems wrong.

The electrician turned up just as I finised heating lunch, so that was well timed. Unfortunately my UPS doesn't appear to have survived the experience. And the client side of the electricity supply doesn't appear to meet spec, so I'll need to contact the landlord :/

I've seen several people saying this, and I feel much the same.

Meep.

It's a bit like the Nelson's Column or the cliffs of Dover dying. It's a conceptual mismatch.

I've no idea what this means, but it doesn't sound good!

Oh - when I try to copy and paste something from your journal (say, into a comment), it highlights the wrong bits (i.e. above and left of what I want), and won't let me copy anything.

Electricity thing isn't too serious, but doesn't meet legal requirments.

And the C&P thing is probably down to your browser.

I dunno, I've not tried it in Mozilla. Will check when I get home.
