Right now I'm sitting in the local, stealing Wi-Fi from someone who neglected to change their WEP key from the default setting (perhaps deliberately; who knows?), typing this with my portable keyboard into my Palm Tungsten and enjoying a tasty Guinness.

If only I were writing a bestselling piece of fiction; then I could truly say, "I feel all Warren Ellis-like"..

Someone or something recently directed me to a scan of an article from the 1940s about the secret to hiring women, which contained such well-meant statements as "women work best when their work is clearly defined for them, as they have no natural bent towards self-management" (paraphrased). Evidently not much has changed in the intervening 60 years: Female doctors are more likely to work part-time (presumably so they can stay at home and go about their home-making and child-bearing duties) and are less likely to take part in research or training (because their BRANES will EXPLODE).
