Keyboards

Keyboards have been much on my mind recently - I thought I was going to have to replace my favourite, used another for a couple of months and found that my speed and accuracy plummeted, and have now managed to get the old one working again.

Jonathan Coulton - London gig.

Pointed out by nwhepcat yesterday - Jonathan Coulton may be performing in London on the 20th at a venue called Dingwalls in Camden.

It's the night before the Orbital SF convention starts, but because of work I can't get to the con until Friday anyway, and since Orbital is on the outskirts of London it might attract a few fans. Of course there's probably a pre-con Tun that evening, but given the choice I'd prefer to get to see JC.

Anyway, his blog should eventually say if it's coming off.
