John and Tom can't go. Seumas, do you want to rearrange for next week?

Pub Tonight?

Are we still up for it? I'll probably be there closer to 7, but see you there. Think Tom's on childcare duties.

Mastering the race

Nature reports that apparently humans are the shape they are because they're good at long distance running. Don't know what happened to me.

In case you haven't had enough yet, these election result maps redraw the red and blue states according to population density, county level constituencies, electoral college, shades of purple etc.

Following up on a couple of earlier posts...

Further to the ancient bittorrent discussion, I've just discovered uknova.com which links to torrents of British TV and radio media. They've got the first two episodes of "The Power of Nightmares" (I can put them up on fitzroytuesday.homelinux.net if anyone's wanting them for conventional download). Terry Jones Medieval Lives series plus loads of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue also available - fantastic!

Also, my Neal Stephenson posting spurred me toward buying "Quicksilver." Amazon delivered end of last week - started reading it immediately and it is astoundingly good, can't recommend it highly enough etc.
