Reading an interesting book on the Tube at the moment (How The Web Was Born). In it there is a picture of the first ever browser - Nexus, written by the Briton, Tim Berners-Lee, while working at CERN. Note that Tim invented the World Wide Web, not the internet.
The release of R6 is imminent, yet I've hardly made mention of it. Why? Don't know. Just not half as enthusiastic as I was when we were approaching the release of R5. In fact I was one of the first R5 CLPs, taking the exam before it went "Gold". You would often find me saying things like "Yeah, but, you can do that it R5!" about every ten minutes of the day. Mental note: must start looking at R6! From what I hear, it sounds like lots of our headaches will be solved. Need to be able to justify the response "Yeah, but, you can do that it R6!"...
Figures for the crimes commited in the part of London I live in. Note the Flash pie chart. Wonder if it's dynamic ;o)
