Friday 7 August

Sunny and fairly warm, with a breeze that is not as noticeable as yesterday. Pity about the midges though - the moment you sit down they're there. And later on, they'll be there in their zillions. It's August, what do you expect.

Talking of using a sledgehammer to crack a nut - yesterday's downtime on Twitter and problems on Facebook were caused because someone did not agree with the writings of a blogger in Georgia. All the social networking sites used by Cyxymu were targeted, according to the BBC. Twitter is still not working properly for me - can only access it through the 3rd party client Tweetdeck.

A few pics from the first days of August:
