Friday 22 January

What a difference a day makes: bright sunshine and hardly a cloud in the sky. Only the fact that the ferry had to stay in Ullapool overnight is indication that yesterday was not a good day. It is still not a good day in the Highlands, where several accidents have occurred on the A9 between Inverness and Perth, attributable to drifting snow.

Windows is now installing a security update for Internet Explorer, which should patch a hole previously abused (allegedly) by the Chinese authorities to tap their opponents' gmail accounts. I haven't used IE for yonks; I only use Firefox these days. Apparently somewhat safer and decidedly faster than IE.

More later

  2. I use Firefox too. Absolutely don't trust IE at all, and apparently with good reason.
