April '98, in which I argue with a
Greek girl and celebrate Children's Day
May '98. Of beautiful women, ugly buildings and crumbling palaces, an inexplicable bad mood, and Tony Blair's grin. Long break due to writing MA dissertation, going back to England, and general confusion.
October-November '98, in which I am puzzled by TV schedules, Kenneth Starr and extradition procedures.
December '98 - January '99 in which my jaw seizes up and I draw unfavourable comparisons between NATO and Starfleet.
February '99 A few notes on John Stuart Mill and that president (again).
August '99 Comments on the earthquake in Turkey, and an anti-Microsoft rant.
September '99 A rather silly month, in which I give some fairly useless advice to the young, revisit teenage homepages and attempt a semiotic analysis of my obsession with Juliette Binoche. Plus Spanish galleons and Satanism in Turkey.
October '99, in which The Matrix combines with the Chinese Room experiment to loosen my grip on reality.
November - December '99 More on the philosophy of artificial intelligence, plus bits and pieces.
April '00 Comments on football violence and the Microsoft anti-trust case, which develops into a weird revolutionary fantasy.
September '00 Ethics on the beach.
December '00 Rain, psychism, vampires and the millenium
January '01 Gods and clods
