Welcome to another late late (void) summary. It was a terribly busy week
(1100 odd posts; often it's been more like 300) so we'll see how this
goes...

Isabelle Whitman was hit by Sircam (although she mistook it in the
subject line for Code Red); nobody seemed to recieve many interesting
things, but Chris Devers pointed out that the old 'you can't get viruses
in email' was proving sadly untrue, and that Nimda had proved you could
get them from web pages, too. Collin Forbes despaired at the chances of
breaking the chain. William Wilson wondered if someone would write a
real Good Times virus. Simon Wistow lusted after the good old days.
People scratched about looking for details when the CERT advisories
covered it all.

Chris Devers also sent an interesting snippet about number stations and
recalled spies. Alex sent a big post about software art.

The Americans argued a lost about the Bush speech; Todd Larason seemed
to get the thread really rolling, but Mike Jarvis was involved a lot,
too. Isabelle jumped in as well, and somewhere Mike threw in some
American myths. Robert Jones started a new thread disagreeing with Mike,
and people argued, a lot, over Isabelle's forwarding of Michael Moore's
latest writing and other things. (It carried on for a day or three.)

Simon Wistow went nuts on list after reading about death; Patrik Nordebo
mentioned 'le petit mort' and more, leading Simon to retort about dodgy
sexual practices. In detail. Celia pointed out the sex-death link was
probably related to generations.

In other news, bint as an offensive word (and other offensive words),
more on loganberries, Julie Burchill, telethons, broken websites from
predecessors, domestic violence, more Old Grey Whistle Test, British
history on TV, Eskimo snow urban legends, recycling vs shares and PVRs.

AND THAT WAS JUST FRIDAY. YOU BASTARDS.

There was more about personal video recorders (like Tivo) on Saturday
(Collin Forbes was informative; I leave the details for those who wish
to peruse the archives), while Chris Devers, Chris Heathcote, Alex and
ade were singing the praises of the Internet as a source of information.
Like, meta threads, or something. Of course, you also get logs, so Todd
Larason could tell us who was listening to Sounds of Passion...

Sunday evening and Monday morning seemed to be dominated by oneliners on
revenge sex. The only long post was from William Wilson. There was a
small discussion about the Falklands war, too, as Ashley Pomeroy
forwarded an article from the Spectator. Ian Malpass talked about
photographing (void)ers. Scary. Steve Mynott talked about Baywater.

Ian Malpass posted about old diaries, and Replicant talked about
LiveJournal. Chris Devers andd John Melesky replied to Ashley wondering
if the world had changed. Ashley knew about BMPs. Giles Turnbull has a
Scrabble app for the Palm he'll beam to us, if we meet up anytime.

Following on from a day of oneliners, John Mcdonnell decided to start
doing a survey. Some people suggested that adding more questions (in 
different veins to the last surveys) would be a good idea. There was
much posting of responses, often multiple times. I'm not going to
collate the responses, though. (Too much like hard work.) Some people
did seem to twist the questions in odd ways.

William Wilson wondered about P2P systems post-Napster. Chris Ball still
likes Gnutella, although Simon Batistoni corrected him about Audiogalaxy
for Linux. In summary, all three seem to work, but the AG and Kazaa seem
more vulnerable. However, as Daynal pointed out, Kazaa is spyware: Mr B
knew ways round that, too.

Niklas Nordebo posted a link to a Register story about ID cards. Simon
Kinahen was upset; Replicant and Matt Jones suggested they'd burn them,
which Lee Maguire questioned.

Aaron Trevena was ashamed of his British, while Ashley did some Mental
Exercises on possible war things. The latter turned into an argument
about bombs on the Tube, chemical warfare and, typically, nukes; the
former was largely ignored, although Rob Jones did reply. There was also
an argument about bias in the US media, with Chris Devers, Ashley and
Rob Jones and William Wilson chucking in their two cents worth.

Al Snell's wrote about a book by his dad, and Harl talked about
psychologists; Stuart Wyatt told us how to put on a gas mask, and Ashley
went a bit nuts about lemon squeezers.

Daynal started talking about charities, and Steve Mynott argued with
her. This carried on for a while. Giles Turnbull pointed out other
sources of phone chargers after Al Snell found one online. Simon Wistow
explained why you get asked if you're communist if you go to the US.
