Feeling the Heat

As prophesied, the heat is back; with cooling at the edges.

I’ve begun to write again with two columns for the web site: one on spyware, the other on Friends Reunited. A third column on internet extremists is a much thornier prospect. More toes to tread on.

Sitting here at the webdesk, I’m feeling the draught. It’s the air conditioning which, like air conditioning the world over, never quite gets it right. Bet Paula Radcliffe had wished her core temperature was as low as mine is now.

The heat is back in the world too: 100 children held hostage in Russia; suicide bomings in Moscow and Israel. Not a cheery prospect.
