I commented on #cloudcomputing at linkedin.com; the UK Government has required certain data sets to be held in the UK from before Snowden, 9/11 and even before Storage-as-a-Service, it’s not uncommon. Remote Storage costs time and bandwidth, transnational location adds to this; cloud storage isn’t the answer to every storage problem.
Trip to London to see “Sunny Afternoon”, the story of the Kinks, at least their early days, sadly no “Come Dancing”, nor “Schoolboys in Disgrace”, both too late for the story; but I saw “Schoolboys in Disgrace” live in 1976.
I really don’t know Waterloo East as well as I thought… I didn’t need to visit Sevenoaks station; I didn’t think those trains used Platform A. Mrs. L. was not amused.
And a trip to #thebirdsnest for the best burger in south london! S//Jalapeño Burger/,^BBQ Sauce^Burger Sauce^ … not sure we use the ñ in Deptford
While watching a season 1 episode of #csimiami, I wonder why so many US cop shows jump the shark by bringing the protaganist’s personal lives into the show? The only exception is those that start there, like #thecloser. (Have you seen the last season of CSI Miami?) 😣
I went over to City Hall, for a London Labour Party reception last night and met and spoke to lots of interesting people. One conversation that’s exercising people, is the growth of the Green Party. I just can’t get how people are arguing that we should listen to UKIP’s voters and fight the Greens. The Labour Party has left huge amount of space to its left and the Greens are occupying it. Whether the “Tories on bikes” will live with this is another matter but which of their policies do we disagree with? Minimum Wage? School governance? Re-Nationalising the Railways?
It seems that Microsoft have removed some of the ruder emoticons from Skype. I discovered this while looking up wordpress’s emoticon features.
