Since August, 2001. Surely it can’t last…

ALL MY BAGS ARE PACKED, I’M READY TO GO
Things are likely to be a bit quiet around here over the coming days, as I’m nipping off for a much needed holiday in Portugal. Unless the call of internet cafés proves too irresistible.
To any burglars thinking of turning my place over while I’m gone: my staff, army of vicious dogs, and security patrol officers are all still on duty.
HACKING MORE ELEGANTLY
A while back I gave Christina some help with the style sheet for her re-design of her elegant hack site: one of my most-visited-blogs. I’m pleased to note that Christina has started implementing the new design, and it looks good.

ANDREW AND GEORGE
I’ve heard and read so much already this morning about his life, his contribution to music and his philosophy that I don’t think there’s an original thing I can add. It seems that those of us who grew up listening to The Beatles and their contemporaries have reached a time when, sadly, we can only expect to see more of those figures who touched our early lives begin to disappear. And we are reminded of our own mortality.

SO DID HE DO IT TODAY, OR YESTERDAY?
I sure as hell don’t know. See yesterday.

SHAKESPEARE MARRIES — MAYBE
On this day in 1582, Shakespeare married the woman to whom he famously left his second-best bed in his will: Ann Hathaway. Or maybe he didn’t. Maybe it was on November 28. Actually there doesn’t seem to be much real evidence that he married her at all:
I was tickled by one of the alternative spellings of Shakespeare’s name: Shagspere. Well, it pays to advertise.
NORMAL SERVICE WILL BE RESUMED — BRIEFLY
The recent silence is explained by my having been in Sweden. I’m back, but only for a few days. Having singularly failed to squeeze a holiday into the schedule so far this year, I’ll be departing at the crack of dawn on Saturday for Portugal, there to spend the next several days zipping about between Lisbon and Oporto. Portugal in December might not be as good as Portugal in July, but it’s better than nowt.
Anyway, a blog silence (that’s like a radio silence, but not) will probably ensue.
Older material is stashed away under Replays.
