I'd like to thank...
Firstly thanks to those who made some input to this morning's post. I'm going to take an amount of it on board and probably come back with more stuff later on.

Secondly, any of you who are passionate about alternative and underground music can do worse than look here and consider signing up. You're pretty much all opinionated people who can write - so no excuses.

Finally, I'd like to thank the college hosting today's seminar. The sandwiches may be limp and pathetic, but the desserts and the WLAN are great.

Today I also had first proper use of the little computer/odometer/speedometer I fitted to my bicycle. Apparently I go ~quite fast~ which is nice to know - I even managed to speed in a 20mph limit earlier and refuse to feel guilty. Expect constant, tedious updates about my cycle-related exploits - a bit of tech goes a long way in encouraging enthusiasm, and I feel even practical after managing to untangle the chain that had managed to wrap itself twice around the pedal without resorting to expert help. I just hope the wheel doesn't fall off at an inconvinient moment.

Tonight I'm off to see Alabama 3 in Nottingham. I feel slightly guilty about this as I managed to get a pass so I could go with holaholaamigos and toxicpixie, only in sync with me getting an email "You have a pass", Nathan was discovering "No tickets left". So, instead of nice-comfy-limo I will be throwing my bike on a train to Nottingham and either getting back tonight (last train 22:23) or kipping at Chez berrega and coming back tomorrow.

This whole bike/train thing is quite good mind - I had no trouble this morning bringing it to Malvern. Which I can describe as "small" and "near a hill".

Not really useful if she doesn't allow comments from people who aren't her friends...

What bike computer have you gone for? I'm thinking I need to know how fast I'm going in the mornings, and possibly more importantly, how far.

This, or something very similar. I was very surprised when it worked, as with any wireless technology.

I bought it ~cough~ a while ago but it's sat in a box.

I'm surprised (and somewhat disappointed) that they'd sold out, but heigh ho. do we at least have the consolation of knowing you'll be thrown out after 3 songs or do you get to see the entire set?

I should be guestlisted for the whole gig, but I might sneak off early to get home on the train. Knowing these circumstances with a +1 as well I won't discover until I'm in Nottingham at 1930.

If there are tickets on the door I'll publically shame Nathan...

I'd sign up, but I'm busy enough with a vaguely similar project of my own (see http://www.killingjar.co.uk ) . So not right now, alas...

Hopefully you know where to find me if you want photos for that :-)

Yep, and I think I may just do that... we've also got a davefish doing some photography for it, which probably won't surprise you. :)
