Online backup update

I've gone with AltDrive. It seems to work well: the important stuff went well and the big 'not quite as important' backup is nearly finished. The non-video bits anyway, as they don't do that until paid. Still, that means I don't need a 'not quite as important and not video' backup :) and it's a reminder of how much of the drive is filled with video of one sort or another.

If you'd like to give it a try, let me know and I'll send you a special link.

No, you can't load the dishwasher

When I say this, it's not because I am nice and want to save you the trouble, it's because you can't do it properly.

It amazes me how many people stick stuff in randomly (wasting large amounts of space) or leave large bits of pasta / whatever on stuff (otherwise known as 'how to block your filter') or put things that shouldn't be in (crystal glass or wood, for example).

The most recent guest - wave :) - was mostly very good but still took the view that it was easier to buy new wood utensils every few months rather than wash them by hand...

"Forget the Napoleon complex

.. (something) or you will fail history".

According to a placard being waived by a striking Chicago teacher as part of a programme on Obama on BBC2 at the moment.

I can't remember the missing words, but what I noticed is that it misspelt 'Napoleon' as 'Napolean'. Oops.

Or is this some in joke or similar?
