Ten Years Online Today!
Ten years ago today I received my first e-mail. This is a photo of my setup at the time. I bought the 33.6k modem with money from my first job and signed up to Argonet using a voucher in Acorn User. The modem was £94 and it cost £10 per month not including the phone call costs! I used to look forward to weekends because the calls were cheaper then so I could spend more time online. Wasted teenage years? Just think, I could have been drinking cheap cider in the park. Needless to say, my third e-mail was spam. Some things don’t change.

More that it can chew?

More that it can chew?
This spider caught a bumblebee in its web. The spider tried to get near the bee for a while but eventually gave up. The bee tried to free itself but its legs were hopelessly tangled. I destroyed the web and the bee flew off, but I’m not sure it will survive with tangled legs.
