Somebody Painted the Sky

Rainbows are amazing. They even brighten up a drab Paddington skyline. And the physics behind them is wonderful as well. Somebody Painted the Sky Arc en Ciel Paddington And just think that the splitting of light into those various colours might at this very moment be helping you read this. See DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) You will either be interested or at least it might help your insomnia. But it is very important to all us Internauts.

I Thought That The Internet Was Supposed To Make Things Better

There is so much hype about the Internet and yet I live in hope that somehow it is going to make things better but often it doesn’t. We recently stayed in a nice little hotel in Paris, a family business that had been in existence for over forty years. It is a great little place but is quite small so we were appalled to learn that if a room was reserved via the Internet that the owners were charged 17% for the service. Daylight robbery. How do these people get away with it. Internet capitalism stinks.
