One of my favourite results of the “honesty in TV” knee-jerk has been the return of the phrase “Library pictures” superimposed over footage that wasn’t shot specifically for that report.
Just a quick note to say that the latest issue of Linux User and Developer magazine features an article by me on choosing a web host. The LU&D website hasn’t been updated for a while, by the looks of it, but I’m told the magazine is in newsagents now.

I enjoy it as tradition for tradition’s sake, for overtly celebrating Britishness, for its constancy throughout my life. Making it more representative of the UK as a whole has worked brilliantly and watching people celebrate their regions and regional emblems gives me a surge of pride.
It’s true, this country has some terrible things in its past but that shouldn’t be a reason to forget all the great things. I’m British now and I love my country now. No country’s past or present are perfect; real life is far too complicated for that.
I’m sure I’d love my country were I American, French or Indian. My patriotism is fairly simple: I love being British because it’s what I know and what I do best, not because I believe it elevates me above anyone else.
