Got rid of 43 old videotapes today, one of which was - honest to God - a Betamax tape! My initial Betamax broke in 1984, but I eventually found a working one in '91. That broke in '92.

…And I’m back! In between yesterday’s “What I’m Doin’” entry and today’s, I’ve been offline for a week. (As I’ve said, there’s considerable ‘tape delay’ in these things).

“And Another Thing” by Eoin Colfer
“The God Engines” by John Scalzi
