  • 23:25 Hmm - another day of life on Mars stories leading The Sun. Which chocolate company happens to be giving away its products with that paper..? #
  • 00:03 Good news from the Hudson River, if no-one was injured. #
  • 01:28 @tree_and_leaf There must be a few microbes about on the average Mars bar... would that Mr Murdoch's influence was as microscopic. #
  • 10:42 Wondering why my entire folder (in the card and paper sense) for one of my current projects has disappeared. #
  • 10:45 Declining to specify my ethnicity on the casual payment form. #
  • 10:57 @Sammee42 ...and they have a list of web addresses including www.richarddawkins.net , which plays into my suspicions of a personality cult. #
  • 11:57 @tree_and_leaf Snarkier than the Jacobite sympathies of the index to Jonathan Clark's English Society 1660-1832 (1st ed.)! #
  • 14:52 Negotiating the ways of the published calendar of Clarendon MSS #
  • 17:18 Enjoying seventeenth-century spelling. 'iorny', indeed. #

There was one person injured (broken or lacerated leg on one of the flight attendants depending upon reports), and some hypothermia, but all in all, astoundingly good news from the Hudson. The pilot was apparently both skilled, expert, and very lucky.
