Birdsong and bizarre car comedy

It was a proper spring day yesterday - we were able to make the most of it with a trip to Oxford to see Pete, Lisa and family.

During the course of the afternoon - after a rather disappointing lunch at the Royal Standard (it wasn't very family-friendly, and only did a roast on Sundays) - we kicked a football around the garden and generally enjoyed the sunshine. At one point a tiny little bird fluttered down onto the patio; I couldn't believe how tame it was, brazenly checking for breadcrumbs before zooming off to a nearby tree. I wish I'd had the camera to hand, although there'll (hopefully) be photos on the gallery of the visit soon.

I have to admit that I've been watching a fair bit of TV just lately - it's a nice way to relax, curled up with Beth of an evening. One programme that I wasn't expecting to be recommending to blog readers is Top Gear - a far cry from the days of Tiff Needell and the posh smug bloke. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and this week's episode is hilarious (especially the 'interior decorating' bit).

mac bits
Onto more technical matters, I'm struggling a bit with getting the email server bits to work; 'fink' is in and working, as is Fetchmail and 'mutt' but I'm not sure how the mac's email server actually works. It looks like sendmail and postfix are both installed, but it's entangling them and then tying them up with CyrusIMAPD that'll prove the challenge. I'll just keep on tinkering...

Oh, and my mobile phone's crashed again - back to the repair centre for it, then..
