Look down bottom right

See that yellow bos?

Four months after applying, I finally got approval from auntie beeb to link to the BBC Sport website. How very nice.

Not like they already offer rss feeds of their headlines or anything...

Moving to OS X finally

Here we go. Making the big move to OS X Panther at home.

Last night I installed the basic build with few problems other than the off disk mounting (eek) and got the ADSL to work, which was nice. BT Openworld support people were useful, even at 12.15am.

It feels fast. It'll let Jo print direct to PDF, it does away with ATM and best of all it doesn't frigging well crash all the time.

Scanner is now useless cos of lack of drivers, but given it cost 20quid in the first place I don't feel to bitter.

As Cronin The Mercurial says, scanners are now like printers, in that you might as well buy the cheapest one you can find cos they're all bloddy brilliant for the vast majority of users.

Been helping out with Tom Steinberg's project.

Think of it as Venture Capital for Social Capital on the net. Stef got keen on this idea a while ago in a fit of frustration, and James Crabtree wrote up a similar notion here

Much respect to Tom Steinberg for Actually Getting It Going though - in this world coming up with great ideas seems the less problem - it's getting them built right that seems to be the limiting factor.
