I've spent my christmas amazon voucher. To go with A Study in Scarlet (the rather beautiful Penguin 'Read Red' edition), I've just ordered Kate Atkinson's Case Histories, and China Mieville's Un Lun Dun, as recommended by some of you lot.

:-)

Also updated my wishlist, in case any of my family decide not to go for the super-secret espresso machine birthday secret surprise.

I love books. You may have noticed this.

email from ISP: close to the broadband limit, again.

checked usage. 2.41GB, *today*

The 'puter has only been on since 7pm.

Hmm. Strange things happenin' at the Circle K.


I *had* been trying to download a zip file of back issues of JPG magazine, which was taking forever, so unless it was just repeatedly trying to get the 220MB+ file and failing?

Other than that, is there a way of seeing *what* my 'puter has been doing for the last 3 hours?
