Strike Out!

On strike today, the second of our little one-day efforts to try to stop this government of lunatics from wiping out large areas of the Civil Service. It's noticeable how little media attention this one has had: the BBC News website stuck it away a long way down inside its 'Business' section (it seems even the BBC thinks the Civil Service is a private-sector organisation now); the Guardian mentioned it briefly, as did the Express (whose report was virtually identical - what price media diversity when the idlers just parrot what comes from AP or Reuters?); the Independent? Nada. the Telegraph, the Mail, the Sun, the Mirror? Zilch.

Anyway, it was a beautiful Spring day, so I had an early lunch and went out with my faithful camera for a walk around the village. Some of the results may well be seen in The Gallery before very long.

And, in case you were wondering, I've finally sorted out the CSS problems with the revamped site. It seems that it was the navigation sidebar which was causing most of the trouble. Now I've rejigged that, everything seems to fit nicely into place, even at 800x600. There are just a few minor coding issues to sort out (like the fact that I didn't know the difference between an 'Alt' tag and a 'Title' tag on images), and then it should be ready to go by the time I take my annual June break. This means that the site will be largely unavailable for a few days, as I'll need to remove everything from the server and upload the whole of the new site. I'll give you more warning of this nearer the time.

In other news, it seems that my little canine friend has gone. He/she hasn't been seen in the backyard since before Easter, and when I went past there last Friday, there was a cat dozing on the flagstones. I hope nothing bad has happened. an arrow to click on to take you to a follow-up item
