Random bullet points

* Am I missing something? People are much more annoyed that MPs put a flat-screen telly on expenses than that they illegally invaded a Middle East country? * Dollhouse has been renewed for a second (cheaper) season. Hopefully they'll get the kinks out now. *John Lewis have exclusive UK rights to sell the red version of the Sony e-book reader. But bizarrely their sexy gadgets catalogue in the Sunday papers calls it a 'portable audiobook' and suggests you need headphones for it. (It'll play MP3s but that's hardly its function.) Strange to get an exclusive deal on a device you don't understand. * If you saw in the news that a place that trains firefighters caught light - and most of the fire damage was to their collection of fire engines (oops) - you might like to know that's where my local gym is. Finally, a satisfactory excuse for not going - at least until they tidy up.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
