If you go here, you will find a thread full of new webcomics to read.
Travel prep: charging things up and shutting things down. My message board will be rigged to low-power configuration over the weekend. Have dismissed the idea of buying MiFi devices while in Canada and America and just tying several to my body to maintain mobile broadband wireless connectivity while travelling. Filling the mp3 player — people keep asking, so it’s a Sony NWZX-1060 32GB, audio quality staggeringly better than any Apple device and more usable than the equivalent Cowon device. And, yes, I’ve compared them. Travel, these days, is all about charging devices up. And then those lovely fifteen minutes in the departure lounge when I shop for a book for the flight. Ebooks are all very well for some situations, but for a plane, I want a nice non-volatile storage medium ("It’s very rare. You should ’ave one") that doesn’t require electricity.
My friend Templesmith was once asked to do samples for a DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? adaptation project (not the one from Boom! that I wrote an introduction to). Looky:
With a bit of luck, I’ll be seeing Templesmith in a couple of weeks for Scheming.
…is it seriously -2 in Toronto?
