ripping irony and spots

I've long had a wholly internalised feud with the established music industry - more in argument than as an activist - but, having ranted about the unfairness of the recently published 'fair use' article in the previous entry, I was pointed to the FAQ section of the RIAA website. This unambiguously condones ripping CDs to MP3, which sets itself poles apart in position - I wonder how that'll play out. (thank you, Sunshine, for the link)

Despite my attempts to eschew the mainstream, I have to concede that I have pandered to it somewhat, by publishing the The North South Divide podcast in iTunes. My attempts to justify this would involve the word "free" and the phrase "trying to reach the widest audience" - ask for written details and I'll blither my way through a poor justification. Probably.

In other news, poor Christopher has been beset by chicken pox. He's not especially uncomfortable at the moment (thank heavens); we're waiting to see if Lenni's in the three week incubation period, or has managed to avoid it. Beth's brother Rob's suggestion that we should rub her up and down her brother to make sure she gets it over with, though practical, isn't that pleasant a proposition!

Well, as the sleet comes down for the third morning in a row, I shall sign off - it's the last of my four shifts this week, and I'm looking forward to a fairly relaxed weekend (JB's coming up, so we'll probably be tinkering with Playout and the children will be being cheeky to him).

Oh.. and does anyone know where most of February's gone?
