Tea-drinker par excellence

Straight outta Wodehouse

Here is a link to the video of the tour of Kensington Palace that I won in a Guardian competition.

Lucy Worsley, our guide, would not be out of place putting young Bertie in his place. Had I realised we were to be filmed, I should have a least worn my tweeds.

QR Codes

qrcode They're those square barcode things that you can scan with your phone. They can encode up to 250 characters of text as well as urls. This one contains some text but it also has an html link to a website that creates them, which is pretty neat.

I'm now getting the hang of smartphones having downloaded apps that monitor my 3G data usage, show me the night sky in the direction I'm looking, scan barcodes (and finds them on Google Books) and, natch, rolls dice.
