Good times

I have a phone on pre-order. (Because it's not been released yet.)

Today, I note that the advertised price has dropped £40. And on checking my order, that price drop also applies to existing orders. This is good of the supplier, because it saves me cancelling and reordering at the new price.

Also, the sun is shining.

Last night, I booked a hotel room for the 27th of May, in Oxford, being the Friday night before the Write Fantastic do. Anyone here fancies meeting up for dinner or whatever, perhaps at Chutneys or similar?

X = B

The forthcoming C++ standard has just been submitted to ISO for balloting.

We might even see a new standard published this year, replacing C++98.

(The title is because this iteration was nicknamed C++0X, in the expectation that it would arrive sometime in the range 2000 - 2009. When it slipped past 2009, it was quickly ret-conned to be a hex value.)
