While clearing out my work bag, I thought I'd try to start a meme. I call it "The contents of my work bag" - imaginative, eh?

My amazing 12 (at last count)-pocketed bottomless cycle pannier/satchel/laptop bag (Altura Skye Workstation - a fantastic pannier, incidentally) contains, when it has been cleared of crap, such essentials as:

Cut for exceeding boringness )

I realised yesterday why a sudden braking manoeuvre on my bike resulted in an exciting 45-degree back-wheel-in-air stop - I had become too used to having a bag full of several kilos of crap on the back, weighing it down. :-)

Those who find old computer hardware boring may wish to pass over this Flickr set of my current collection[1]

Hello! I have just returned from Mac Expo in London, and I thought I'd jot down a few of the killer features of Aperture.

Here, have some photos of some of my collection, because I was feeling bored:

More to follow, perhaps, when I have more time to play with the macro lens.

Today, I have mostly been imac-wrangling. Last night, I took it upon myself to upgrade Missing from OS X 10.1 to 10.2. This proved unwise, as it ended up with a kernel panic on boot - "Unable to find driver for this platform - "iMac"". Finally managed to resolve this by wiping the OSX partition and freshly installing 10.2 onto it. This, however, wiped my ADSL installation, which resisted all attempts to resurrect it. So, it's off to Mailbox tech support, which brings me to the following:

I would just like to take this opportunity to sing the praises of Mailbox Internet, who have been providing me with ADSL for over a year. They seem reliable (I've had very few outages, they actually know what rDNS is for and let me set it for my IP), they let me know of planned outages via e-mail, and their tech support line is lovely - answers in a couple of rings, know what they're talking about, and phone back when necessary. Additionally, having acknowledged that the OS X support for the Alcatel Speedtouch USB is somewhat flaky, they offered to send me a Fujitsu modem, or maybe split the cost of a proper router with me. They've even been *dropping* their prices (OK, because BT did, but hey).

I need a haircut.
