Celebrated the 1,000,000,000th second since 01/01/1970 last weekend (this number is a common way of counting time in Unix).

The rest of the week has been, well, subdued. The ECN site got mentioned on Debian Weekly News on Monday, which was nice.

Ganesh and I have made a site including a "Hall of Shame" of sites that break ECN implemetations. Take a look, and submit sites you think may be broken: http://urchin.earth.li/ecn.html.

Just had an enjoyable day out with mum and her boyfriend to London, and visited two great places: Vinopolis, and the London Eye.

Vinopolis is a wine museum with tastings included! Had a great time, tasted 10 wines, and came out feeling rather merry :) It has an unusually useful and friendly audio guide widget (how long before I can have something to talk to my Palm and my bluetooth audio device about the exhibits?) and is well designed. If you're in London I'd count this as a top attraction, and you could easily spend four hours in there.

The London Eye, as everyone probably knows, is a huuuge Big Wheel built on the South Bank of the Thames. It takes half an hour to complete a revolution, which is your "flight". It was nice to chill out after all that hard work tasting wines (especially given the nice sunshine) but to be honest it wasn't *that* stunning. You can get similar views of London with a 10 minute walk from my Dad's flat down to Hampstead Heath :)

Dinner in Soho was followed by a 4-shot from trusty AMT Espresso, a train ride home, and JFK.
