Correction to my typo: 1914, not 1814, for Golden Delicious.
Apple facts I want to remember:
- Egremont Russet 1872 (Sussex)
- Granny Smith 1868 (Australia)
- Golden Delicious 1814 (West Virginia)
- Braeburn 1952 (NZ)
- Gala 1970s (NZ)
- Jazz 2007 (NZ)

On route to Hartland Point, Devon. The dome is a radar installation.
Took a brief break during Belgium beer tasting to see how the fries are made.
OMG Excellent statistics pun at BrightonAstro tonight in section on population, sample size, and average: “The Ns justify the means”. Attributed to John Tukey.
Learned a new word: isepipteses (lines of similar arrival times, on a map. I think.). But I’ve not found any examples to look at yet.
I've been back in Brighton for 17 years (as of yesterday) and I finally used the lovely library.
I'm going to try very hard to visit the Pavillion this year too.
I think that must be the first Vega launch I’ve seen. That one goes up so fast. No moody steaming on the launch pad; light it, and it goes.
Looks like there's a 22:20 BST launch tonight of a ... space laser!
To measure wind speed. 3.4-Kilowatt laser (sounds impressive, but I have no idea) which is "as powerful as 840 lightbulbs" (sounds less impressive).

I find myself clicking on pretty much all the links off https://css-tricks.com/delivering-wordpress-in-7kb/ and I don't even use wordpress:
- energy costs
- green hosting
- mozfest sounds fun!
