I want my digital utopia
So writes Phil Hogan in today’s Sunday Observer
And so do I.
I’ve reformatted my C-drive, re-installed various programmes and lost count of the number of times I’ve had to search for the serial number of those which I know I scribbled down on a scrap of paper somewhere.
I’m also having problems with the automatic formatting of these postings ~ putting in bold
and the html links. Bear with me as I work out the manual grafting of the code.
Popular Pineapple Party
It seems that the poor prisoner (see my last posting) who wanted to vote for the Pineapple Party knew something. According to the Jakarta Post
yesterday, in Yogyakarta during this election period fruit sales have risen 60%.
Whilst in Yogya, there’s a nice article in today’s paper about the banana-leaf style of the Affandi Museum in Yogya. According to the Yogya Tourism website
the Museum “keeps a collection of Affandi's finest art work during his lifetime.”
It’s probably got some of his artwork from beyond the grave as well.
Tit for tat?
Indonesians have been advised not to visit the U.K. Visit the Indonesian Embassy in London website
for the full text of their Travel Advisory IN BLOCK LETTERS.
It would appear that they’ve read the current timely advice from the Foreign (and Commonwealth) Office in the UK to us Brits ~ “We advise against all non-essential travel to Indonesia.”
But, hey, does this also mean that someone is actually reading this blog? I wrote on March 26th about how out of date and irrelevant the advice was and now their update is dated April 7th
Drop me a line guys and I’ll see how else I can help you.
For example, I could disagree with your support of the electoral process here ~
Brits say election was jolly good
I could. But I won’t.
As I’ve said elsewhere, whoever you vote for, the government gets in.
