I’m going to Lavecon in Northhamptonshire, and spending a couple days in London at the V&A and the Brit. So my posting frequency will drop slightly. If you’re a new commenter, or want to argue with me, you may experience some delay but I promise you a full measure eventually.

Normal ranting and raving will resume after the 19th.

I will delete this posting upon my return.

    What if we have a scintillating discussion here while you are off gallivanting?

    I am going to wait until version 1.2 comes out and the server load issues are resolved. I always wait for the first update of anything and never buy the first version of any product.

    @Marcus (#6): Microsoft Surface Book immediately springs to mind. I’m looking forward to playing with v2 when it appears…

    A con(~ference/~vention) dedicated to washing? Do you feel a need to get next to godliness?

  5. Rob says

    …or want to argue with me…

    Would that be a five minute argument or a ten minute argument?

  6. chigau (違う) says

    I already told you.
    Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says.

  7. Holms says

    (Yes, I asked that question purely out of hope that I could simply contradict your answer)

  8. John Morales says

    People often literally contradict themselves, but I’ve learnt that I often have to be circumspect about noting that.

    For example, “proud of not being proud”, “not tolerating intolerance”.

    Yeah, I know that they are sometimes merely expressing themselves poorly via unqualified claims — in my examples above, they mean to refer to different kinds of pride and of intolerance — but, still, sometimes they are not.

    I will delete this posting upon my return.

    I’m relying on that.
