In the middle of this picture is the totem pole. A woman climbing it dislodged a rock which crushed her partner's skull. She hauled him up to a ledge and secured him, abseiled down, swam to the bottom of the sheer 200m cliff, free climbed up to where the picture was taken, and ran a tough 7km to raise the alarm. He survived, with brain damage and paraplegia, but went on to complete the climb several years later (with aids).

When a great photographer catches your essence. My inner mountain goat lets rip on the Carrick Range, near Cromwell.

@Greg trust me, I have it on good authority, I’m the head of IT: if you put Google into Google, you will break the internet.

Amazing how the IT Crowd standing joke actually works 99% of the time.

Wife: my phone camera has stopped working, can you fix it?

Me: have you tried turning it off and on again?*

*in an Irish accent or it doesn't work.

Good morning! I hope today something gives you the uncomplicated pleasure of rolling down a hillside

Loving the new nudges in Gmail. Pops messages that look like they expected an answer back in your inbox after three days. AI done right.

Sorry, but if you don't think Jodie Whittaker ROCKS as the Doctor, you're a sad misogynist.

Digging ditches up Tobin's track.

Nasty new phone scam.

First, a voice synth call saying Spark technical support have detected hacking on my internet connection. Dial 1 to talk to support.

Then another call from "Peter Wilson", with subcontinental accent. Says he's from Spark, but
hangs up when asked for a number to call him back.

That feeling when a recursive function works first time. 🎆

Soggy blossom, boys.

I am a man of constant sorrow.
