Caricature

Ouch

Idly wondering how much it would cost to park in Cavendish Square for the next Distraction Club, I've gone off and got a few quotes.

It charges on a per-day basis.

£34.00

I think that the Cockfosters option is easier and cheaper.

Technology

When modern technologies manage to work together correctly, it's really rather nice.

I'm currently listening to MP3s on earpods while I program. A moment ago, the music briefly muted, and a quiet little burble sounded in my ears, causing me to look down. On the status line at the top of the screen, an incoming message from Scan Computers scrolled, telling me they've just dispatched my order. It's about 200 minutes from the time I ordered, and it'll be with me tomorrow.

A combined phone/MP3 player/camera/converged device can be so much more effective than individual items. Oh, and kudos to Scan for their habit of sending me an SMS as well as an email when they complete an order.
