I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".
Source: Prof David Voas, University of Essex

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

No, really. It speaks the menus as you scroll through them. I thought it'd be a gimmick but I'm quite impressed with it.

OJ says:

And why are the speaking menus useful? Do they save your eyesight?

It is a nice colour. Sort of burnished...

Means you can operate it in your pocket OJ :)

Nice of Apple to finally notice the existence of blind & partially sighted people. Wonder if this kind of built-in accessibiity will turn up in any of their other products?

If only you could customise the voice... I'd like it to sound like the computer from Portal...

You can change the voice! Sadly not too many choices, although I'm glad Joe Pasquale isn't one of them.

No, I'm just missing civilization. I'm not a country boy at heart.

Spiderbaby says:

It seems not everything can be adequately replaced by a large quantity of beans :)

24th Oct 2008, 18:15

FilbertFox says:

depends how you prepare the beans......

SLG says:

very beautiful indeed, sorry you are missing civilization.

Spiderbaby says:

FF - I defer to your superior bean-crafting skills :)
