2005/05/27 16:53:00 - Tube Nargery
Over the bank-holiday weekend there are a number of engineering works going on, most notably that the District is closed in the centre of London (and hence the Circle too). This produces a rather odd looking map.

2005/05/27 22:45:00 - In the defense of constructive fragility
My phone has a bug.

Actually, it has two bugs, and one of them inadvertantly provides the solution to the other.

The irritating bug is that if you fill up its "hard disk" then it won't boot (sounds more like a computer than a phone, doesn't it?).

The prophylactic bug is that if you pull the battery out just after turning it on then there's an appreciable chance that it will corrupt its filesystem.

When it has a corrupt filesystem then it boots into a rescue mode that reformats the disk, at which point one can restore from backups.

Quite why it can't have some way of initiating this behaviour sanely, I don't know.

Make that three bugs.
