Guess what we're doing tonight. There's a nice piece of solomillo and a sausage special, I think I have over five types.

Meanwhile, the cat seems to really like computers, but not in the same way as me.

A new company has taken its residence just next door.

I don't know if it's a simple typo, a clever naming strategy, or if they have instituted chiefs that really are good at executing while dressed in leather.

So, quiz time.

Next week, Bananarama are "performing" at the Razzmatazz club.

  1. Should I

    • stay home, because it's a waste of money
    • go, because it cannot fail to be fun
    • treasure the memory of Elizabeth Shue shaking her pompons to the tune of "Cruel Summer" instead
  2. If I go, which of the girls should I hook up with given the chance ?

    • Bana
    • Rama
    • Nana (apparently she left the band and they're now a duo)
  3. To weed out people that don't know what they're talking about:
    Which of the following Bananarama hits is not an "original"

    • Love in the first degree
    • Venus
    • Really Saying Something
    • Cruel Summer
  4. bonus question: which of these songs was borrowed by which more contemporary female artist ?

  5. To round off, which of the following producers should Bananarama never have worked with:

    • Stock
    • Aitken
    • Waterman
    • All of the above

Answers on a postcard by Sep 10 at the latest. Alternatively, you can use one of those new-fangled third millenium e-mail thingies people seem to be raving about.

Got some mails about Savon already, so I threw together a first project page in my Trac. That should help people to get started if they want to check it out.

Just found out that Echelon, the US government's super spying program, uses Berkeley DB. An Alias episode showed Echelon being compiled, with a phony "compilation progress dialog" (do I wish I had one of those !), but the screen itself was full of actual gcc lines compiling, among other files, crdel_auto.c

Knowing that the US government uses BDB suddenly makes me a whole lot less worried about my privacy being invaded.
