I WAS WAITING in for the gas man today – the gas man did not cometh – but a special delivery tipped up through the post.
It was a special delivery from British Telecom, that firm has decided I need very special advice to set up my BT Broadband in Oxford.
Sorry, not a very good sunset tonight in Oxford for my loyal one reader, Doctor Drashek.

Cigarette smoking in public places was banned in Taiwan on the 15th of January this year. ♦
YOUNG IT EXAMINER REPORTER SUBHANKAR KUNDU went back to his village during this week – it’s in West Bengal – a lengthy two day journey there by Indian Railways, a day there and two days to get back.
Except it’s not like being a journalist for the INQ, being a journalist for the Examiner. Apparently there are Gorkha riots in West Bengal, which make it very unsafe to travel.
It makes travelling on the London Metropolitan Line (banner above includes Wembley Stadium – Ed.) seem like a very pleasant dream. As the oldest existing civilisation in the world India has seen it all. China would be the oldest existing civilisation in the world, but it had its Mao tse Tung period, and the “Cultural Revolution” changed a lot of things, init? ♥
