I've been using the same main email address forever (at least by Internet standards). Since sometime in the latter half of the 1990s, anyway.

I just had someone on the phone remark to me "That's a very Terry Pratchett email address".

"Isn't it just?"

May I just take this opportunity to say to the LSpace Cabal that I do appreciate having an @lspace.org email address.

According to this on the BBC News site, Going Postal is up for more than one award at the Royal Television Society Craft and Design Awards.

(OK, the article is going on about Sherlock being up for five.)

"We found out [on Monday] when tests showed he had malaria," said Ancelotti.

"He has this virus and, obviously, he lost power and training."
Ah, no.

But isn't it nice that a disease that kills millions only has a performance impact on a Premiership footballer?

BBC news report.

There's a reason that criminals are advised not to 'foul their own nests' - i.e. to go elsewhere to do their robbery and such. In this case, the victim ended up getting help from the robber's own household.

Oh the embarrassment!
