Gaberlunzie never did like playing whack a" small gentleman in black velvet" aka moles.

While whist was a pleasurable game, Gaberlunzie could never quite take to Bridge and Culbertson bidding. However, he was brought up on strict rules with advice to "Remember the man on the embankment" So he's unbelievably aghast to see that the English Bridge Union has failed to reclaim VAT on tournament fees, when a tribunal ruled that bridge was a game rather than a sport.

Gaberlunzie searches first out of the gate at gTLD, seed that Facebook is offering a Paper.app and loves the ingenuity of Roberts radio, but wonders how any retrofit for future iMAC interfaces will be achieved.
Gaberlunzie was amused by the ruckus caused by the two 18-year-olds who have launched an iPhone app Verdict, as the initial PR mailing showed chunky shoes to approve or otherwise, and reminded him a wedding he went to and photographed (below) from the waist down for fun. One of his best was abovethe " three kilts, two kilt pins and lots of feet!"
Gaberlunzie considers robots and who they may replace as Google acquires both robots and and an AI company, and Doodles on the charm of French architects, but with no frivolity or playfulness (Gaberlunzie supposes Deep Mind would somberly defy that approach!). But as ever there's always something new out in wide open countryside.
He blames it all on Chrome, which highlighted Danger: Malware Ahead..so he switched to another browser and that seemed OK. BUT indeed ComputeScotland then crashed for three days and Gaberlunzie simply got drowned out. He is informed however that it was 'a minor issue which did not affect any of our live websites.' The real culprit was a hard disc that failed that incovenienced no-one (except for Gaberlunzie plagued by no text load, no picture load and no newsletter send).
Google celebrate the British Museum's 255 years with a Doodle and Gaberlunzie once again had a look at how the British Media treat these Doodles. Mostly they are not perceived as art but rather put into the technology sector

Surely everyone know that coverage in a NYT type prestigious publication is a publicity godsend. Recently a six-year study of the divine pink FT (Financial Times) has found that the more frequently a company is mentioned in the newspaper in the morning, the greater the volume of shares traded in that company are during the same day.
Gaberlunzie has a great hero writer, John Markoff at New York Times. His current blog on Dr Theodor Holm Nelson, a thorn in the side of the computing establishment, and his critique taken to Shakespearean levels in a eulogy for his friend Douglas Engelbart and a Critique of the State of Tech.
Just what every small island would hope to get for Christmas - a Dark Skies status award. Now Hebridean Coll can play among the world of dark sky islands, as it joins Sark, smallest of the four Channel Islands, which won its status in January 2011. Neat strategy would organise a trip that encompassed both with a stop off for Northumberland and Galloway Forest.
The Guardian, The Independent and The Mirror were the three respective top ranking media in Google search for Google's Doodle on Commander Grace Hooper. It celebrated the life of one of the great computer age pioneers, a great STEM example and who is widely credited as being the "mother" of the Cobol computer language.
As the BBC catches the quiet exercise of an actual Edinburgh tram on the city's streets at dead of night and with not much in the way of an audience, Gaberlunzie wonders where the word came from and how it has evolved.

And being Gaberlunzie, he's lost the that serendipitous link to the archive collection!
