Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002
Another random post, doo-dah, doo-dah

Christine and I have signed up for 12 month gym contracts, and have our rotations sorted. We’re looking to go at least twice a week for at least the next few weeks; the monthly fees are the equivalent of 5 gym sessions a month so as long as we do that as a minimum we’ll get our money’s worth. We’ve managed three times this week.
The Robin Ince gig was very, very good. He’s doing some shows around the country plus a stint at the Edinburgh Fringe. You should go and see him.
Because I’ve been pretty busy this week, there’s been no App of the Week or Foursquare Thursday. I’m hoping to get something together for next week if I can. I am starting to run out of ideas for Foursquare Thursday so I may only be able to do a few more weeks of it.
I’m on Google+, and have been for a week now. Haven’t really done much with it as right now my main social groups are Facebook and Twitter.
I’ve been posting quite a bit on Twitter about the News of the World phone hacking scandal but don’t feel as if I need to say anything much here, as other people have said all that there is to say. Still, I’m looking forward to hasrebekahbrooksbeensackedyet.com changing.
I’m going to the Great Yorkshire Show on Tuesday. The last time I went was 2002, back when I was 18; when I was very young I used to go every year with my parents. Sadly Christine’s working and can’t get the time off so I’m going with friends instead.
Spotify is finally planning a launch in the US later this year. I’ve been using it for over 2 years and would definitely recommend it – though free accounts have recently been limited to 10 hours of streaming per month, it’s a great way to listen to new music legally for free, provided you don’t mind a few adverts now and then. If the music industry is as keen to clamp down on piracy as it says it is, then it needs to support services like Spotify.
I’m still not convinced that the new dashboard in WordPress 3.2 is an improvement, but I’d rather not downgrade. Oh well, better get used to it.
