The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

August 29, 2004 @ 19:34 By: gordon Category: General

Whilst surfing the ‘net last night, I came across BBC Radio 4’s website promoting the new episodes of the Hitchhiker “trilogy” which will play on Radio 4 starting in September. They are based on the third, fourth and fifth books of the five part trilogy and are referred to as the Tertiary, Quadrenary and Quintessential Phases (the first two radio series being the Primary and Secondary Phases). Hopefully the BBC has ordered extra bandwidth for the Radio 4 website because it appears the episodes will be available online for a week after the second airing.

Yet more travelling on the horizon

I’ve done a fair bit of travelling for work this summer. In July, I visited our regional offices in Sturgeon Falls and Halifax. I went to the Winnipeg RO in early August. I thought I was done travelling for a while, but I am probably going back to Sturgeon Falls two more times this fall.

In addition to work-related travel, I am planning on going to Columbus, Ohio in November and the bells are travelling to the UK next summer.

A new look

I’ve switched blog software from Pivot to WordPress. WordPress has a more robust set of features than Pivot does.
