We shall overcome

Forget Obama, forget Darfur, forget upsetting world-travelling flames, this is a grass-roots movement I can get behind.

Doomed to repeat its mistakes

Never one to pass off the excuse to post without writing anything substantial, I give you the history meme:

history|awk '{a[$2]++} END{for(i in a){printf "%5d\t%s\n ",a[i],i}}'|sort -rn|head

105 p4
51 cd
39 ls
30 perl
30 lastfmfpclient.exe
29 for
28 grep
10 export
9 wget
9 python

Skins in its present form had its final episode last night. True to form it was a rather stylised presentation of an A-level results day with some smashing music and a hard hitting performance from Larissa Wilson. Next year's series will feature a while new cast of rowdy teenagers with Sid and Cassie popping in occasionally. I'm not sure how it'll work as, for me, it was the characters that made the show, but I'm prepared to give it a chance.
