Good Grief

sometimes – you just have to wonder ….

Hundreds of top-secret and highly classified cabinet documents have been obtained by the ABC following an extraordinary breach of national security.

Click through … if you want to see the story of how this came to be.

I guess we should be happy that government ineptitude is not limited to the USA and the UK!

Then again – there is this ….

The Chaps, Converse

It isn’t that we share shoes …. more that we interact.

It started as a simple chat about the ukelele as an instrument.

“Simple”? Ha!

Now, no spoilers, please.

But then, somehow, as ever… It was Another Chap that started it all, when he threw this out ..

Jazz, Classical, but ukulele?

Don’t disrespect the ukulele.

and then went right on to share James Hill doing Voodoo Child

Micro Blog Safely Delivering A Post To WordPress

This is a specific post – with a specific reason.

The specifics relate to using this plug in on one of my wordpress blogs – thankyou for the link @manton

The idea is that this post gets fed through to And Another Thing. When it arrives it will be classed as ‘Pending’ – so as not to inundate you dear readers at And Another Thing.

I will then visit the site from time to time and publish the posts that are relevant.

Shop Class as Soulcraft

I captured the following information on this 📚 somewhere ( maybe even here ). I haven’t read it – but it is on my list. I like the look of it. It seems to have a Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance feel to it and right in line with the work I am doing here. Has anyone read it? Recommend it?

Steven Wilson

File Under : 🎵

Over the past ten days I have dropped a daily entry of an image, with a comment into the music feed. This is the eleventh in the series of ten (doffing cap to Spike Milligan) that provides some context – and links back – to those entries. Suffice to say – I class Steven Wilson as one of the most prolific musicians and sound engineers that we have ever seen. It isn’t just the quantity – surely bands like The Dead and Phish can beat him on that count … but more the quantity with the both quality and variety of what he produces.

Informed Consent

A question raised recently, that ‘everyone’ should be able to answer …

How do you make a judgement about what is safe to do online?

Good question. But I specifically put ‘everyone’ in quote marks because I worry about ‘everyone’. I worry that given that people generally do nothing to protect their passwords … think yellow stickies on monitors, using thr same password across all services, sharing your password(s) with friends … however you look at it – whatever you do …. if that is hard to understand – we have an uphill battle with ’Informed Consent’
