Le Français

Toujours, je suis désolé pour mes amis( et amies) français(es), mais il est difficile pour moi d'écire en français. Peut-être un jour...

More Miscellanea - TechRepublic

TechRepublic is an excellent institution for those who wish to keep up with the world of computers etc.

An excellent feature is the forums. There are two: one for discussion and the other where one can ask a question, for example about software problems. The attitude of the many IT professionals there is superb and they are most helpful - even I can understand their advice (!) and they have solved a few problems for me.

It's not all serious there though. Each Friday there is a feature called, rather self-deprecatingly, "Geekend". This week's edition included the following, which amused me:

A major research institution recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science, tentatively named Administratium. Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons and 111 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic weight of 312. The 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which is surrounded by vast quantities of peons.

À bientôt

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
