Let Us Welcome 'The Nemo Fish'

I've just returned from a trip to the Whitsunday Islands on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. I declined to inform you (my small but devoted audience) that I would be away for a week, in the hope that you wouldn't use the opportunity to break into my house and steal all my stuff.

The Whitsunday islands are fascinating. Amongst other facts, I learnt that the Clown Fish (Amphiprion percula) has now, apparently, been renamed 'the Nemo fish'.

A week without a computer is a fascinating experience. I might recommend it to you. Or alternatively, you can do a google search on 'life without a computer', and get all the facts in a fraction of the time.

I'll confess though, that I continued to dream of software. One particularly vivid dream involved the file explorer of a futuristic operating system. Hard-drives were respresented by islands, shortcuts were bridges, folders were highways streets and alleyways (of smaller and smaller sizes, the further into the file heirarchy you flew) and files themselves were represented by buildings: different types of buildings for different types of files. Navigation was achieved by flying over the panoramic isle of files. Ahhh. Too many cocktails. Too much sun.

Now I have to devise a way to become a billionaire by Monday, so i need never work again. Hopefully I've forgotten all my passwords in the meantime...
