@MB - what is that fancy looking instrument beside you in the red pic - a frequency counter for tuning your guitar?

Enjoyed the song BTW, I'm sure a lot of techies will identify with that!

Smiling faces

@Max.... "If I see David Ashton's smiling face...."

I've recently had to get new passport and dcriving licence photos done.  I had to take my glasses off (which makes me look even uglier than I normally do) and they tell you not to smile.   Frightening.  

Those who have seen this story before, forgive me for retelling it here.....years ago I lost my driving licence and had to get a photo done in a hurry.  The photo guy should have said to me "Mr Ashton, I think you should comb your hair first"  but he didn't.  The result was truly hilarious.  It was great when I went through a police roadblock or hired a car.  "Mr Ashton, can I see your driver's licence, please?"  "Sure, but ONLY if you don't laugh at my photo."   "Of course I won't!"   I'd hand the licence over and the recipient - especially in the case of car hire girls - would usually be convulsed on the floor laughing.  I still have it somewhere, I'll see if I can find it and post a pic....

And like Betajet, I am flattered that SOMEONE looks at my incoherent ramblings....:-)

Something thoughtful to consider

Max, I'm flattered.

Here's today's thought, attributed to John Alfred Spender and others:
The longer I live the more I see that things really are as silly as they seem.

Why does this make me think of the Internet of Digital Things?
