Satisfying gig. Apparently, they’re breaking up… (sez billy)
3 mile walk through forest with gps - have arrived at gig:-)
CU-1 is three weeks old today and my Dad sent me a father’s day card (no, I didn’t send him one…) which is a really nice lino cut based on a photograph taken a couple of weeks ago.
Mom, Dad and other family folk, there’s a great shot of CU-1 having a bath over in the scrapbook :-)
Never have I met anyone more capable of taking a piece of gorgeous, ground-breaking industrial design and turning it to useless rubble in seconds…
What is it with everyone these days, first KPMG hassles Chris for linking to them and now NPR (no, that’s the NRA - the NPR is the well-meaning public braodcasting lot) are demanding that people complete a form to...
Well, it’s Friday, and Nick and CU-1 have gone off to visit young Gulia, one of the nct babies. It’s been quite a week, Nick’s parents came down to stay with us, CU-1 discovered the fun of staying up all night and...
I’ve just downloaded the new version of netscape — it has all the down-to-basics functionality of Communicator, but with the added extra of a (largely) standards-compliant rendering engine. Also, my parents should...
A story I can believe, and one I can’t
I’ve modified the generator script so that the selection of links (over there on the right) automatically extracts my bookmark file and chops out links using a seeded number. This happens every sixty minutes. “Coo...
Just a quick grin of thanks to Mr Raettig. His cutdown version of OpenBSD has been powering mum, the pumpernickle intranet box for the last 16 months and his configuration has proved remarkably robust.
…Eager not only to point out rotundity, He does math too, and shows, with air of profundity, How much more destructive are sweet, fatty snacks Than militant Islamic terror attacks…
has been in the house for a week now. She now sleeps in her carry-cot during the day and in bed with Nick and I at night. In between, she is learning to poo and fart at the same time while having her nappy changed...
Been visiting the iamcal network a lot ever since Billy decided to download Cal’s metalinker script. Sites like these cheer me up big time.

Also, I just wanted to say “thank you” to all those who emailed congratulations and have not heard back from me individually - please forgive me but it has been a bit of a crazy time

In the history of our little planet. There appears to be an increasing lack of clemency.
As Nick and I were reading our way through hours of labour, two other couples from the same NCT class were also at the Royal Free Hospital. Sam and Ben now have a daughter called Georgia, and Michela and Andreas h...
8cm, the landing lights have appeared in the distance
Syntocinin drip, contractions 3mins, transition soon:-)
A beautiful little girl called CU-1.
Right, just a quick one as my batteries are almost dead. It’s a girl :-) her name is CU-1 and she finally joined us at 13:23 this afternoon (Friday 31 2002). Pics in the scrapbook
4cm dilated - off to labour ward soon
Well, still no baby. But I’ve uploaded some snaps from the inside of Nicki’s ward and great news for Sam and Ben - they have a (not-so-little) girl called Georgia. She is the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen and Nic...
The beeb have webcams of their two (Docklands and New York City) telehouse server cabinets - grin:-)
Those wacky guys at the London design collective bring you a web site that fits in 18 by 18 pixels and still includes a range of content (such as art: http://www.guimp.com/warholsoup.html)
Well, back at home again. Nicki is spending the night in the antenatal ward (no husbands allowed after 20:00) - they’re keeping her comfy with pain relief and she’s looking a lot perkier. More excitement tomorrow ...
well, Nick’s just had another bath - this seems to both relax her and slow the contractions (or ‘rushes’ as some womenfolk have been known to call them) which should give her a little window to get some sleep in. ...
Nicki still in pain but contractions getting stronger - might head back to the RFH later tonight, if not it’ll be tomorrow am
this is pretty rough going for Nicki, she’s in labour, but not yet ‘enough’ in labour (getting to know the labour ward quite well, tho…)
the idea being to get a few minutes sleep in preparation for tonight’s big push… Off to the Royal Free soon.
Bit of a weird moment there - I got in the bath and everything slowed down, or at least it was so dreamy in the bath I couldn’t feel the contractions. So I went to bed and they kicked in again with a vengeance. No...
