MIBR

Mandatory Ixion Book Recommendation

Just finished "Rivers of London" and "Moon over Soho" by Ben Aaronovitch.

Both jolly entertaining supernatural crime capers. Not great
literature but good holiday reading. I bought the first one because
I'd heard about it on Simon Mayo's Radio 2 drive time show, it was
featured on the book club item a few months ago. That was last
weekend, I bought the second last Friday at Gatwick before we jetted
off to Salzburg for some half term R&R. I finished the second on the
flight back to LGW this afternoon. I hope he does some more, I
suspect he will as the plot's been nicely hanging for the next one. I
hope there's not too long to wait.

Dr Richard Stallman is giving a lecture to the Oxfordshire branch of

No. Try "Give us a report on battery life in a couple of weeks, please"

My friend Chris worked at Culham/ JET for years - he's now head of research
at Microsoft Labs in Cambridge after writing the seminal undergrad reference
on neural networks. I would say his motivation isn't financial though - his
interest in AI developed while at Culham and that led him into computing.

Well it could be but fusion is being studied by physicists and they aren't d=

The Guardian had a big piece a while back about their new iApp for
iDevices. A few weeks later they finally released an app for the most
widely-used mobile platform (Android), to no fanfare at all, and it
turned out to be crap.

Meanwhile the Independent has an excellent Android app that delivers
the news every day in a functional way, without any hype at all.

Guess which paper I'm now reading.

It could always be that we don't have the impetus to anything while we
still have 20 years of oil.

Is that the one the Guardian did't like?

I read all that, I'd suggest the author is an Apple fan.

one could be mistaken for thinking it was the iGuardian.
