Christmas 2010?
Thu, Dec 22nd 2016 2:19p   Ben Poole
I wrote this six years ago. Flip 2010 for 2016! So, the veg. are done, the table is laid, the turkey a-ready: I can now sit down and wish my readers a very merry Christmas and happy holidays! You three make my day, and I run this site just for you guys. Here’s hoping for a splendiferous 2011 for us all (and let’s face it, it can’t be any worse than 2010, surely??!) Merry Christmas one and all. Here’s hoping for better days ahead.

New Macs, function key strips
Tue, Aug 30th 2016 4:00a   Ben Poole
By most measures, Apple is well overdue a refresh of its Mac and MacBook lines: 2016 has seen nothing on that score, and the latest press event announced for next week doesn’t really tell us any more. One of the more persistent rumours for the new machines, whenever they may turn up, states that the row of function keys on the new MacBooks will be replaced by some kind of context-sensitive “touch strip” Sweet baby Moses, if this is true then I hope to all that is holy that App

VMWare Fusion tip: drag n drop
Thu, Jul 21st 2016 12:37p   Ben Poole
I have a recurring, not to mention infuriating, issue with Fusion which has existed since I started using the software in those heady beta days (2007?). To wit: drag n drop from the host to the guest OS just stops working for no apparent reason. Occasionally, this extends to copy and paste too. One way to address this is to restart the VM (bah!) or when it gets really bad, repair the VMWare Tools installation. Nasty. When the problem happened again today, I decided to dig a little deeper, and f

The new post-fact age
Wed, Jul 20th 2016 9:20a   Ben Poole
It’s terrifying, especially hot on the heels of the brexit farce here in the UK. Consider this comment, made in a book four years ago and derided at the time: The Republican Party has become an insurgent outlier in American politics — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition. We’re

You know a blog is pretty much dead when its author misses said blog’s fourteenth birthday by almost three weeks. Chortle! Oh well, happy birthday little website: you’ve done well!

Perspective on the loss of a Prince
Mon, Apr 25th 2016 12:40p   Ben Poole
Quite rightly, the world has gone nuts over the loss of Prince Nelson Rogers last week. Hell, I’m listening to some of his music right now, and I’ve had some insanely sad moments this weekend pondering his death, whilst also thinking about the other entertainers we’ve lost so far in 2016 (Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood, David Bowie, Ronnie Corbett, Paul Daniels and many, many more). But this stuff happens. We need a little perspective as people lament the passing of genius. No, w
