brief update on things...

Television debut!
OK, so the appearances are only very, very brief, but 2005 has definitely been the year for our family turning up on the telly! Who can you spot in this clip? (2MB RealMedia) It's a brief snippet from the last episode of How To Start Your Own Country - a fine TV programme (of which I singularly managed to miss every episode!) based on Danny Wallace's clever Citizens Required project. Thanks, Jon, for the video capture!

iPAQ wi-fi card(s) of doom.
Well, my iPAQ has - yet again - decided to reject the wi-fi card that I carefully introduced to it (following all the standard procedures - neutral venue, public place...) which is rather annoying.

That's not strictly accurate - it works sometimes, which is possibly even worse, since there's no rhyme or reason to it. Still, the 128MB storage bit is fine, so I can enjoy all kinds of audio delights on the way to work.

Gizmo vs XLite/Sipgate.. does it work?
Excitingly(ish), yes!.. it's possible to make free VoIP calls between the shiny new Gizmo and my current sipgate.co.uk account on XLite. Which would be nice if my iPAQ was working...!

Radio 1 webcast thingy.
As is often the way with record companies, a decision was made that no video cameras would be installed... complete waste of time - and opportunity(!) Still, that's the evil corporate world for you.
