  • Black holes in the net

    If you experience sudden, otherwise inexplicable, Internet access problems, you might victim to a black hole router. This week, it happened to me for the third time in two years. This time, I’m writing the experience down so that I don’t have to hunt around for a solution with a crippled connection again.

  • Democracy in action

    A mere three and a half years after voting to invade Iraq, MPs got their first chance to debate the wisdom of their decision. It is also the first time I’ve watched a parliamentary debate since that vote. It is time to review my opinion of our form of government.
