Outdoors bad, indoors good

When I was a child, I loathed the winter months. Day after day of coldness, greyness, rain, frost and snow. They seemed to last an eternity.

As an adult, I still loathe the winter months. Okay, so it's not quite winter yet, but the weather is already beyond foul. The sky is overcast and almost featureless, the rain is pouring down, and the gusting wind is rattling the windows. And it's only going to get worse; by the time February comes around, we'll have all this plus snow.

I can't be the only one who wants to hibernate until May!

No, evil company, stay away from my favourite 8-bit computer!

Windows XP loading on a ZX Spectrum.

It's pretty authentic-looking, but clearly faked: the initial pilot tone is a little too short (though not unreasonably so, admittedly); and the filename should be on the second line from the top, not the very first line; and there should be a space between "Program:" and the filename; and the loading screen is accompanied by standard-speed border stripes, but turboloader sounds.

I'm such a dork. It's why you love me :-)
