Yep, Sussex-bound. I think he said something about the Cube2 still needing several thousand squids to kit out the studio so I guess all that's really happened is that Jem's 'done up the outhouse' before selling on.
I don't know really but I guess the practicalities of being there might make day-job difficult...he also mentioned 220/month for Internet that's ridiculously slow.

There is a Cube-Cubed in the offing, it would seem.

Blimey; that seems a little drastic. Didn't he just arrive?

As someone who's moved many, many times during my life and twice now with young kids, I know what a royal pain in the backside this can all be. Admittedly, several of my moves (and the two recent ones with the kids) were between different countries, which makes it harder, but any move that involves new circles of friends, new schools, new internet connections ( ;) ), and wotnot, are unfun.

True enough, Pedro, but rarely without a reason, and equally rarely without consequences.

Well true but, in the light of that, let's just see what happens, what?

But never mind that, did you know that the term "blimp" is reportedly onomatopoeic, the sound the airship makes when one taps the envelope (balloon) with a finger.[2] Although there is some disagreement among historians, credit for coining the term is usually given to Lt. A.D. Conningham of the British Royal Navy in 1915.

A 1943 etymology published in the New York Times confirms the British origin during the first World War when the British were experimenting with lighter-than-air craft. The initial non-rigid aircraft was called the A-limp; and a second version called the B-limp was deemed more satisfactory.

An oft-repeated, but false, alternative explanation for the term says that at some time in the early 20th century, the United States military had two classes for airships: Type A-rigid and Type B-limp (hence "blimp").

I expect there will be a hypercube soon, then.

Speaking of blimps and dirigibles, I'd like to make more people aware of the Zeppelin bend, also known as the Rosendahl bend after Admiral Charles Rosendahl, who insisted that his airships be moored using this knot only. It's a fantastic knot, easy to tie and secure, but easily undone even after being placed under very large loads. It's also very elegant ...  8-)

I can safely say that this is the best knot I have ever learned, but despite years in the Boy Scouts, I only found out about it relatively recently. Try it; you'll wonder how you ever lived without it ...  :D
