If technology doesn't seem like magic, it's probably obsolete

I'm finding less time to update my blog these days, but my flickr photostream is often updated.

Playing in my house right now...

At 00:00 GMT on Thursday I was listening to:

For Christmas I received a pair of Flow AMP-5 bindings for my snowboard. This is me prepping for the real snow.

FT podcasts
I was going to expand on the Financial Times' new podcast offering, however the page that would, I suspect, tell me all about it is timing out in Firefox (although it does seem to work in IE, sometimes!).

It looks to be a tentative beginning, hopefully moving on to a broader range once popularity has been established.

Last weekend I successfully completed the Times Samurai Sudoku ... and promptly forgot to send in the solution for entry to the prize draw. Doh!

2006 will be a big birthday year for me, so please put Tuesday 25th April and/or Friday 28th April and/or Saturday 29th April in your diary/online calendar/phone. If a fairy sprinkles some magic dust, I may still make the London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April. Let's see.

Hazel set the tone for 30th birthday celebrations, with about eight parties, three dinners and several other events ... so there's a lot to live up to!

I've become a bit of a fan of Lost on channel 4, mostly thanks to my sister. As a it of old news, my cousin's husband's brother is starring in the second series -- in fact, he's the first person you see following the recap of the first series!

Here's a link to his official site and also his IMDb entry. In a small-world scenario, he was also in Two Thousand Acres of Sky, with my friend Jenny Foulds.

Somewhere, I feel sure that my bacon number has just dropped a notch or two...

Big congratulations to my sister for passing her driving test today, at the first attempt. Excellent work!

Version 3.0 is now in operation. Next year I\'ll leaf out the tree gags; not sure what I\'ll branch out to, though...

This year\'s tree, fresh from the yard. For reference next year: over 6 feet, £28.50. Buy a taller tree!

My parents were over on Saturday, so we took a walk around the market and a ride on the wheel. The market was cool, but the wheel was a rip-off. £2.50 for just over one continuous rotation. Grrr.

Yesterday we were out for lunch, and I tried two tasty beers. First up is Innes and Gunn - 77 days (it takes 77 days to make), which is a beer left to sit for 30 days in malt whisky casks. I forget where the other 47 days go.

Next up, we have Vital Spark from Fyne Ales. Definitely recommended, as is the Bow Bar.

Following Richard's lead, check out the UK's World Heritage sites. Edinburgh's Old and New Towns are in there.
