That whole scenario is now a kind of Proustian Schrödinger's  Cat. Thanks for that.

'Proustian Schrödinger's Cat' is a phrase I'm going to use.

Or purrhaps 'recherche du chat perdu'.

I'm pleased to be of some service.


Now, a question, who uses Coca Cola to clean their toilet but keeps it a secret, only to be revealed below the line in tempting picture links??

Is it interesting that this version of The Decline n Fall of the Hackney Empire, doesnt contain Chapter XX: Conversion Of Constantine, or is that just me?

I downloaded the audiobook from above

I never got into Reddit. The interface was always too much like hard work. Saying that Usenet was probably worse but there was nothing else on offer outside of the Compuserve / Yahoo / AOL portals. Remember Compuserve? I feel a bit ashamed that I can't remember my number when other people claim to be able to remember their mum's Co-Op divvy number.
