John, Paul, George and Ri-

A quick update because I'm knackered...

Three of John M's articles (two short one long) scanned, OCRed, hand converted to HTML and Proofed. With each stage taking longer than the one before. Four hours continious work last night for one thirty five page article - the minor classic of the British left What is the Real Marxist Tradition?. Four more shorter pieces awaiting my loving hand conversion to HTML. It may be tedious, but the result is files literally half the size and very easy to deciper and edit.

Dinner and routine computer maintence with Simon M this evening. It's never occured to me that you can boil pasta in milk with herbs - the result looks a bit like tapioca, but tastes lovely and rich. More culinary discovery and computer assistance on Thursday. He's setting up a business as middleman selling 'Nutritional Supplements' (pills and powders for muscle building) on ebay.

Strict Machines have two projects in early stages - an unplugged album (possibly full length) and an electronic EP (instrumental or nearly so). Which at least shows the band's versitility. So I get to be what Paul T calls the "Three and a halfth member".
