Rise of the Machines - Closer Than You Think?

Private Eye magazine (essential reading) reports in Issue 1173 that the British army is establishing a new worldwide satellite-based communications system called Skynet. To anyone who has seen the Terminator series of movies (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger before he switched from acting to a less reputable profession), this will either be an extremely disquieting omen, or an indication that someone in Whitehall has a wicked sense of humour.

something not mentioned on my own blog was The Sharon also renewed my subscriptions: Private eye, popular Mechanics, The Spectator, Viz, Ebony (I am not black but I like to read about it), The ring (boxing, boxing), and last but not least the Economist. Merry Christmas.
