    No rain yet. I watched Escape From New York which I don't think I'd ever seen all the way through before - maybe caught the last twenty minutes when getting back from the pub twenty-odd years ago. It was OK, though there seemed to be some gaps in the narrative; we know that walking down fifty floors of the World Trade Center wasn't something that took a couple of minutes, and getting downtown to the WTC from the railway was a lot quicker and free of incident than getting uptown a few hours earlier had been. And we certainly know that when an airliner flies into a building in downtown Manhattan, you don't find said airliner in big airliner-shaped pieces on the ground afterwards. But it was of its time; I have a vague recollection of it being criticised for excessive violence when it first came out, which isn't apparent now. Maybe I should watch the sequel Escape From LA and see if that's sufficiently violent for modern sensibilities

    Goodnight all

    Last evening's entertainment was "The Italian Job" commentary.

    Which, that being said, wasn't overly entertaining, all in all, it being given by some rivet counter type fan and Michael Deeley, the producer.

    It would appear that those supposedly expensive cars that were totalled came from various scrapyards, though the DB4 would be worth a small fortune these days.

    Looking forward to watch "Vera" this evening, which I hope will be more entertaining.

    Morning all
    Wet dog walk this morning, carpet fitters have just been, so bedroom #2 is looking a lot better. 9am conf call didn't happen (or it did and I wasn't invited, either way I don't care) and on Saturday I'm off on holiday.

    Someone just came in and wanted to steal my microscope.

    He wants to solder really small stuff apparently. <- needs very good set of these then.

    May have over done it on the bike at the weekend. Both knees now very stiff and sore.

    Thanks.

    You've just reminded me it's nearly time for the next dose of ibuprofen.

    Morning denizens

    Grey out; the rain is due to arrive any time now, and continue for the rest of the day
