Back it...back it now...
CodeBug is raising funds for CodeBug on Kickstarter! The cute, programmable, light-up wearable for everyone. An instant, fun intro to coding -- it's Creative Commons too!

'...One million Micro Bits - a stripped-down computer similar to a Raspberry Pi - will be given to all pupils starting secondary school in the autumn term...'
The BBC has launched its Make it Digital initiative with new hardware for schools and a raft of coding-based content.

Noticed in the bank this morning that they had installed an online banking terminal.

Not sure if I'd be happy using what is a publicly accessible and shared computer for this.

Anyway, if i do need to go into a branch its because I need the services of a staff member for a banking task.

+Peter Cannon, saw one of your graduates today....

Having a quick wander around the local Tuesday market this morning when I happened to chance upon a stall with a load of old Viz annuals on it.
There was a chap perusing the collection and then he asked the stall holder how much. Conversation as follows:

Stall Holder: 'You want the lot or just the one?'
Customer: 'No, just the one'
Stall Holder: 'Oh right, 2 quid each then innit'
Customer: 'Oh cool'
<customer starts looking towards one of them with more interest>
Stall Holder: 'errrm, except that one...its three quid'
Customer: 'Errm, Why? Is it because I've just looked at it'
Stall Holder: 'No, it's a bit different to the other ones innit'
Customer: 'Errrm'
Stall Holder: 'Look, I dont overcharge my customers as they wont come back....and it is a special edition' (note: it wasn't)
Customer: 'Errrm, OK' <looking confused, gets money out and pays>
Stall Holder: 'Would you like a bag...etc...etc'

<me walks of laughing to myself>

I'm sure Netflix have developed some secret web technology that, upon logging in, scans what you fancy watching and then makes it unavailable
