Partial Eclipse

London got glimpses of this through fairly heavy clouds - I managed to take a few pictures from a little before noon onward, using my long zoom with a piece of reflective mylar to filter out enough light to keep things safe-ish.

Pictures are here

Here's the first one, to give you an idea of what they're mostly like.

No On-Line Continuum

I forgot to say that there isn't going to be a virtual Continuum games con after all. Not really surprising since it's a con that runs heavily to LARPs, which are probably problematic with current tech. Should be back next year.

And for anyone who hasn't already heard, the Novacon SF con will be happening but has moved to Buxton, Derbyshire this November due to problems with the normal hotel being used for other things during the pandemic. See their web site for details.
