A meme - whatever that is.

So, I've been hearing about meme's for a while. Still not entirely sure why they are called a meme, but here's one I spotted on David Bishop's blog.
Take the nearest book to you. Open to page 123, go down to the 5th line. Type out the next 3 scentences.

The nearest book to me is a collection of 6 James Bond novels in one.

'Krebs never makes a mistake with his knots.' He gesticulated towards the bloody figure on the other chair. 'When he wakes up,' he said, 'you can tell him that these doors will open once more, just before noon tomorrow.

That's from Moonraker.

2007 - not an auspicious start to the year.

So, it's not been the best of starts to the year.
I get back from the New Year piss up in Skegness Butlins, turn on my PC and my C: drive goes pop.
That's £45 for a new hard drive, and the year is only 3 days old. So I can't write anything, nor can I get at my CV to apply for jobs.
I pay for a Friday delivery, but it doesn't get delivered on Friday, it arrives on Monday. I order a 160GB drive, but it only has 127GB of space.

There have been many other small annoyances so far, but that was by far the biggest.

The only plus side is that this morning I got an email from FutureQuake asking me to cut down a script for acceptance. So that's tomorrows job, todays and last nights was reinstalling everything on my PC.

So a late, but heartfelt, Happy New Year all of you.
