Something Wicked This Way Comes

Writing about web page http://www.warwickartscentre.co.uk/events/id/2572

I think Derren Brown is a marvelous man, and that was the best live performance I've ever been to...

Demon Headmaster parodying aside, it was a bloody good show; much better than the TV shows because there's the whole audience interaction thing. The final big effect was brilliant, and he explained it to; it's all jolly clever. There was also a subliminal message video followed by about 5 different predictions, he did his speed counting thing, and the classic nail–in–the–nose.

It was a lot of fun, and a gret night out; and I got his autograph, but just missed a photo, unfitunately (the spoil–sport escort ended the post–show meet–and–greet, and the battery on my friend's camera died; still, he signed the programme, so that's OK…)

There is no spoon…

For reasons best known to itself, my Desktop – while quite happy with the existance of Wireless Network Adapters – refuses to acknowledge that there are such things as Wireless Networks; apparently the wireless router that's been fine for the past 5 terms is now no longer in range…
So, if I want to get online I have to take my laptop (which also won't connect wirelessly; I always have trouble with it; it's Linux, so is more manual and I've never got the hang of the subtleties) downstairs and plug the cable into the router. The annoying this is they were both working fine with the wireless router at home on Friday…
Also, I've just lost at Monopoly; it was supposed to finish by 12, but got interesting and actually went on 'til nearer 2.
As an aside, any spelling mistakes are due to being tired…

No Purchase Necessary

Update (19th May 2006): The competition is now closed, and Max Dymond was the winner

I'm bored, so I did this:

Wd thmj gt npd gmpmptamt tgat pdmpjd pgmtjd gdt dmjmwmdmt mu md tgdgp datmtpgtd dmpm md dwdpagpd; pmwgmg, ptngmg, jtmpgmg, mp – gm Pamtjamd – tgpmwgmg gdatw thmgp bmu gm tgd waw tgat njw Pamtpmdm bm tmeqtamd

And while it may look like meaningless garbage, it is in fact perfectly meaningful coded garbage. It's also a quotation, so the views expressed in it are not necessarily my own; it just amuses me…

Anyway, whoever decodes this first, and posts the answer either in a comment or a trackback, wins a J2O next term (as such, this is only open to people at Warwick).

No Purchase Necessary, Terms & Conditions Apply.
