Lately I have promised various people various things, including a hugely superfluous full-length post on PooterGeek about the recent British bombings. I must apologise to those I have so far disappointed. Tony Blair in particular keeps phoning me, hoping that I will be able to provide him with some choice phrases. Sorry, Tone. I have been too busy to finish these tasks, but I have not forgotten them—and soon (not having a proper job any more) I will have a great deal of time to complete them. Right now, however, things are frantic.

Sorry also to people whose comments spent longer than usual in purgatory today. I was flitting about on London Transport (metaphorically giving the finger to mass murderers) so I couldn’t monitor the PooterGeek approval system as closely as usual. Sadly there’s no wi-fi underground.
