I'd not been in the Eton College Chapel before last night going to a concert given by a choir my mother belongs to. Wow. Glorious perpendicular gothic. And Handel too. Coronation anthems with choir, brass, tymps and that organ.

No one ever re-visits code. Some large public projects seem to get a few eyeballs, but in the way that I find multiple typos and errors in everything I read, so to with programs. Everything needs more polish than can be afforded it seems.

Teachers need support delivering the new coding curriculum. http://www.computingatschool.org.uk/.
 
@MissPhilbin issues a rallying call at #pyconuk for computing professional to support teachers however they can. Get involved via #CAS.

 I've never been much of an active user of Facebook. But I did at one point take part in setting up a page for my Morris side.

And now Facebook are ticking me off for not checking it.

Well, I knew it had been a while. I am impressed my 8 year old self managed to access Facebook.

I had a few hours to kill in the Kensington area in late November, and went for a wander round the Science Museum, including the new Information Age gallery. Electric telegraph to mobile phone systems.

If you watched their two games you'd have seen that they actually played pretty well. They had some chances to win or at least equalize both games. Call me crazy but I think they played better than Brazil, for example. Football is such an unfair game sometimes...

Just back from a blissful 12 days at Kadaltheeram. Philip and Ambi, the owners, provide the personal, relaxed, welcoming, non-formulaic service you don't often find these days. Spent our days relaxing under the coconut palms, enjoying Raj's great food in the restaurant, swimming in the warm Arabian Sea, exploring the local villages on foot and generally getting away from it all. A cracking end to our first visit to India. Can't wait to go again.
