Not in the slightest bit snow.

While we weren't making the most of the spring warmth (which dissipated so quickly as dusk approached and the northerly wind started whipping across the hill.. wow it was cold) outdoors, I thought I'd put on Classic FM in the kitchen. There was a programme called Baroque and Roll. This week had an interview with a dead composer; or it would have been if his agent had allowed him to ask many questions!

Beth sent me an interesting link (you'll notice, incidentally, that the snap.com thing has been installed) to a collection of more ecological colours for one's website! If I can work out how to do it easily I'll probably add a button to this blog!

more Pocket PC software
What else, what else? Oh yes, I've finally found a free (at the moment, since it's in beta?) sftp client for Pocket PC/Windows Mobile - there's no easy way for me to download stuff to the iPAQ from my Mac when I'm not at home. It doesn't offer the quickest of transfers, but it's reliable.

podcast and music
Another podcast to add to my collection - this time an interesting musical "anatomy" one, called Pandora Podcast. One of the most recent includes a feature on a technique called pedal point, which I inadvertently used (I played the bassline a bit wrong!) during the chorus of "Summer In Britain" ().

Finally, here's an interesting mood-drive music site that I've just been told about - www.musicovery.com.. another redefinition of radio, in a similar vein to Pandora.. cool!

(oh, and Happy Mothering Sunday to all you mothers out there!)
