Just to say: sorry this blog’s gone a bit silent, I’m doing jury service. I’ve completely lost track of what I’m allowed to say and what I’m not, so ‘complete silence’ seems the safest way. Besides, I’m separated from my computer all day.
I might take it tomorrow though. They have wifi in the jury room and charge £6 an hour to use it. Per person. Given that they have the wifi anyway, whether people use it or not, and it presumably costs them far less than £6 to run per day never mind per hour, the idea of seeking such a fat profit from the poor folks who have turned up to do their civic duty and are trying to vaguely keep in touch with their forgotten working lives during the long, long waits is so very wrong that I think they probably deserve the money. It’s almost evil; I like their style. So, maybe I’ll take the old laptop along and pay them off.
