News on November 5th

There isn't really any direction to today's post. I'm just going to write a bit and see where it leads. I found something entertaining at Brainbashers. A selection of "simple" puzzles. I've also been keeping up with the news. The main headlines aren't that great, but look a little below the surface and there is a lot of interesting things going on. Normally I'd provide links to the stories, but I think I'll just hint at them and perhaps it will inspire you to go hunting for knowledge. There is some very controversial Linux news at the moment. A scientific report has arrived indicating Britain may have to change its national favourite take away. China has declared it will offer more aid to a certain continent, although I don't know whether I regard loans as "aid". There were several blackouts across parts of one continent. I'm sure there are lots more interesting things to uncover, so its worth exploring.

Today is also special because it is Bonfire/Guy Fawkes Night. Unfortunately, whilst most of us love them, fireworks have become extremely expensive and this spoils a lot of the fun, having the knowledge that the pathetic sparkle you just set off cost £20 or whatever you paid. It does seem a little like burning money, or to be more precise exploding money. Of course there is always the option of going to a show, but they often cost quite a bit to get in and the quality varies.

Regardless, enjoy your evening and remember the legal time limit for fireworks on November 5th is midnight, so there is plenty of time to have fun. If you'd prefer an evening inside I refer you back to the first part of this post and also suggest you may also enjoy Cyber fireworks
