In other news, it was Picocon yesterday, which went ok. From my point of view, it was significantly more relaxed than the last two have been (since I wasn't running it this year).
I went swimming again today (and got some goggles). I got up to 500m (20 lengths), or at least I think so (I may be out by 2 lengths), so that's an improvement over last week. Since I was the slowest person in the "medium" lane last week, I used the slow lane today, where I was the fastest person - the whole fish/pond syndrome. Ah well. I need to figure out this front crawl business properly though - I know the theory (breathe out underwater, rather than keeping your face out of the water the whole time), but I had trouble putting it into practice. Maybe next week...
Incidentally, in my latest clear-out (not sure what the motorbike equivalent of a car boot sale is), a few new items. As usual, these are free to anyone who wants them. I have:
* Which Databank - much like the last one I got rid of, it's a personal organiser - a cross between a calculator and a palmtop (3 kb memory).
* Hands-free kit for Nokia phone - it came with my old 6210, but I don't know whether it would work with any of their phones.
* Belt pocket thing for a mobile phone (leather pouch that clips onto your belt). It's the right size for a Motorola 8800, so it's too big for my current phone - may fit other phones too.
Give me a yell if you want to claim any of these - first come, first served.
In other news, I see that people with free LiveJournal accounts can now pick up syndicated feeds. So, for any ICSF people who want to read Bob's journal, go to:
type "bobrandom" (no quotes) in the "Account" box at the bottom, then click "Add feed". My ulterior motive is that the more people watch a feed, the "cheaper" it gets for each person :)
