Subject: Bit late, but ...

Yesterday, in a sudden fit of enthusiasm, I planted some daffodil bulbs.

Yes, I know, it's rather late, and there's no way they'll do much this year, but who knows, next year they might.

How many? Oh, I didn't actually count. 25 kg of bulbs in an almost continuous layer.

(They'd been sitting around waiting for my tuit for way too long. In the end, it didn't take very long.)

The first new MG for 16 years has rolled off the production line in Longbridge..

No, BBC, not 16 years. The first MG ZT, for instance, came out of Longbridge ten years ago in 2001.

(No, I don't think this is a terribly exciting car, but I wish it well, if only because it helps the parts supply for pre-existing MG models.)

I see that membership of the 2012 Discworld Convention has already reached the half century (excluding guests and committee).

Pretty impressive for 90 minutes. At this rate, it will be sold out before tomorrow evening, but I expect it to slow somewhat.

Oh, that's cool!

The standard text entry box in this here Java seems to understand Arabic somewhat better than the underlying OS (Windows XP) does. It's actually going a character left when I press the left arrow key.

(Oh, but it fails when I do Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right, jumping words right and left respectively. What a shame.)
