Yesterday, I finally got around to changing the WAP settings on my phone from the settings I used in Australia to ones that would work over here. Yes, I can now Google from my phone ... I feel so 21st century.
I've just started reading Accelerando, by Charlie Stross - dizzying and frenetic and rather than picking at one or two aspects of modern high-tech life he's thrown in All.Of.Them. - enjoying it a lot, so far.
