Hay there

This blog has been trundling along for a few years- One of the early posts was about pop/rock festivals.
I too old and crumbly these days to even think about heading off to such hedonistic events. A comfy deckchair and a cucumber sandwich is more my scene now...

The Love Cats

Predictions of the future in a film from the not so distant past...
"The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defence. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware 2.14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th...."

Well, that didn't happen.
So what did become of Skynet?

It turned into the internet.
