It was the year when they finally immanentized the Eschaton. And things were coming to a head.

Load up with rubber bullets. And other assorted milspec riot control hardware. As field tested in Paris.


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

This week I shall mostly be,

counting down the days.

21 days till Brexit.

3 bloody weeks.

We're getting down to the short strokes.

So, farewell then, Keith Flint. 

Just say no 

ps. It still runs various linux distros with no problem.

I'll be a bit sad to see it go as it got used to do Sysadmin fixes on the Ecademy website from the Barcelona MotoGP paddock and from Glastonbury. And it was tastefully customised with Hello Kitty stickers.

Years ago I got an ASUS eeePC 901 and hacked a copy of WinXP onto it. Yesterday I fired it up and it goes to 50% CPU with no visibly active processes in task manager, only when the network is running and it can see the internet. So that's almost certainly a virus with no way of fixing it. I can't think of any easy way to load Win10 and can't really be bothered when the machine is dog slow anyway.

Time to burn it with fire I think, before it does any harm.

No Brexit isn't a bad Brexit.

No Brexit is the only Brexit that isn't bad.

The price of democracy is eternal participation.

Saturday Night - 1920

A slight variation on the "Perfect Manhattan".

- 60ml Bourbon
- 15ml Red Vermouth (Cocchi)
- 15ml Dry Vermouth (Noilly)
- 2 dashes (12 drops) Orange bitters
- 1 Dash (6 drops) Angostura
- Stirred, frozen martini glass, lemon twist, squeezed on top.

This one's from Everleigh and they say 2 dashes Angostura. I find myself scared of Angostura these days and tend to go light on the recipe amounts.

Here's the Savoy version.
