Fringe of Technology

[singlepic=49,320,240,,right]The Edinburgh Festival is due to kick off in a weeks, and yesterday tickets went on sale for the Fringe events in August Or rather they didn’t, as the computer systems went down.  Computer says “no”?

Have I Got More News For You

Thoroughly enjoyed the latest Have I Got News For You, which featured foxy newsreader Kate Silverton, superpoet Ian McMillan and car lunatic and oil guzzler Jeremy Clarkson on hosting duties.
