SpoonMan

I don’t know what led me to look this up tonight, but of course this old classic is on YouTube ;-)

I worked with QuickTime since version 1.0, when you only had postage stamp sized movies, we got the Dev CDs, I have managed to keep the original (120 x 160 px, 10 fps) on my series of computers since then.

And what is amazing is that the original file still plays!

Enjoy Spoonman, and good luck!

Peace & Quiet

While I am sorry for all of the people caught up in airports etc. the closure of Britain’s air-space for the last few days has brought some welcome peace and quiet to my area.

We normally get planes flying over every few minutes, now they are gone, it is amazing what difference it makes.

Once things get back to normal again, I imagine people living under the really busy flight paths are going to realise even more strongly what a blight air-transport bring to their lives.
