I was catching up on the messages on a conferencing system by flicking through the unread messages when I came across the following comment:

> Isn't C -> C#m a bit of a wrench?

Which had me wondering what the hell the computer language C#m was and why the hell anyone would think the world needs yet another flavour of C to contend with when I realised that it was a music conference and they were talking about chords...

I'm fucking fed up. Very fucking fed up, in fact. So utterly fucking fed up that I can't be bothered to write about it...

Jodrell Bank

Oh, wonderful - some bunch of idiots have decided that rather than stump up an extra few million quid, probably less the amount our politicians spend each year on prostitutes, they'll close Jodrell Bank... Brilliant.

When I heard this I naturally assumed that this piece of stupidity had to be down to the technophobic luddites in power, but no, it appears that the decision was made by a bunch of scientists forced to assign priorities to research... Hmmm.... I smell a rat - why would anyone with a brain pick on something so noticeable? Something we actually do that's still world class?

Ah - I see, I was being a bit dozy there; the public probably won't stand for Jodrell Bank being closed, when they might well have ignored the demise of a few less well known projects, so choosing it makes sense. Bet the money appears from somewhere fairly soon...
