Onsite Technology

Quote of the day: Rich Cook -- Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

OK, i have been having a nightmare of a time with matters digital recently, but credit where it's due:  this new laptop of mine, i bought it at a new shop called Onsite Technology ( -- it's in Market Place, just behind city hall, and downstairs with a tiny little doorway so you'd miss it altogether if you didn't know it was there-- and i love the shop! It's owned my a man named Troy Roach -- i'd never met him before last week, but i first heard of him years ago as being a supremo of the local infonistacracy -- a uber-geek, in other words -- i wish i had one-eighth of his knowldege of things computery.

It's a shop that reminds me of my apartment, actually: organised chaos.  By which i mean, there's stuff piled everywhere, but he knows exactly where everything is.  I was there today after work, as a matter of fact.

 He does vinyl to CD conversions and i took in Brian Plummer's "No Questions" album -- a fantabulous album that i don't think has ever been released on CD  -- and i've been searching for years.  I should have it back on Saturday.

Now to scour my vinyl collection for others....
