In today's news, Gordon Brown works out what it is that all those bears were doing in the woods.

Cameron complains to Brown that there suddenly seem to be an awful lot of bears around, but Brown says it's OK because our woods started with less s**t in them than the woods in America.

Perhaps this takes the metaphor too far.

Anonymous subversion access with mod_svn_authz not working properly in Apache 2.2? The symptoms include, peculiarly, svn ls working, but svn co not working, or browser working but svn co not working, whereas one might expect the behaviour to be consistent.

It's because you need to say both "Satisfy any" and "Allow from all". If you miss the "Allow from all", some very odd things happen, including the above inconsistencies.

My thoughts on the news of the day:

If a crime was mistakenly recorded as ABH when it was meant to be recorded as GBH with intent, does this mean that it was also charged as ABH, or alternatively, that no perpetrator was brought to justice? Has anyone else made the link from the identification of the crime to the charge?

What are they going to teach 5 year olds about sex? Sex education for Shevek consisted of a limited quantity of anatomy in secondary school, which we ridiculed mercilessly for both style and content, and a single somewhat panicked class in the entire two years of college when the entire year was called into the great hall and shown how to put a johnny on a banana. Of the two, I suspect the anatomy was more use, but insufficiently detailed for practical purposes.

I've been fencing again, I'm amazingly out of form and shape. I feel better already, for just two nights' training. It's helping me not curl up so much, which helps my shoulders not hurt, and everything is better again. Today, I did sabre, to get my legs going. I'm a pain in the *rse, and proud of it.
