When boyfriends break things

by Suw on October 28, 2006

You may have noticed a sudden slew of old posts being republished here, all of which have now been deleted. You may be wondering wtf that was all about.

It's ok. It was just Kevin playing with my Treo – he hit 'Sync All' in mo:Blog, thus causing it to republish a whole bunch of stuff I wrote last year.

Special apologies to William Meloney who left a very nice comment on the reposted version of this post, The Connected Life from May last year, which has sadly now been deleted. William, I can respost it to the old post if you like – I still have it on email. Just let me know.

As for Kevin, well, it's lovely to have a boyfriend who is both curious and technically inept. It provides me with hours and hours of fun. I'm just not going to mention either the Sony Minidisc or the iPod here. No sireee. Not once.

See who makes you crepes in the morning ever again! 'Snyc all' is a helluva lot different than 'publish'. Oh about the MiniDisc. OK, that was stupid. (Skulks off to eBay to replace it)

Oh, sweetie, you don't have to do that.

Suw, I'd go for protecting the crepes!
Off topic, but here is the Guardian's piece on Gowers and IPPR: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,,1934781,00.html
It is wonderfully encouraging that maybe the UK can lead the US toward a more reasonable set of copyright rules. One sentence in the piece says: “… it is not the music industry's job to decide what rights consumers have. That is the job of government.”
That is almost correct. The fact is, that all individuals have all rights to begin with, and the role of government is to take away and remove as many of them as the people will stand for. Or so it would seem.

Not once? Three times perhaps?
