A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.
- September 19
- Just to note that on this day in 2005 I stood outside the closed
door of an office in Roe Lane wondering what to do next, because
noone had told me I needed to bang on the door to be
admitted. Shortly afterwards - once I'd gotten inside - Ted handed
me a Post-It note with some random characters on it and said, "this

- Despite having read the book, I couldn't remember the slightest
plot element from The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.
It's an excellent movie despite its age, and the plot is actually
rather good. Also it's funny seeing 1965 Dublin standing in for
Berlin and parts of London (why they used St. Stephen's Green
instead of, say, Hyde Park is probably a matter of logistics, but
it was pretty funny seeing the familiar pond & island in what was
supposed to be a London park.)
(now I look it up online and find references that say it's
Battersea Park. I'm not convinced.)
- September 2
- Finished reading Catch-22. Erm. I think the idea's good
but the execution is questionable. There were whole sections I
sped-read through because frankly I couldn't be bothered.

And just like that it's September.
