As of Wednesday 30 December 2009.

50 Years of Stupid Grammar Advice – The Chronicle Review – The Chronicle of Higher Education

I’ll throw mine out now (or sell it on Amazon for 50p). I read the first two pages when I bought it years ago and thought “what nonsense”.

The treatment of the passive is not an isolated slip. It is typical of Elements. The book’s toxic mix of purism, atavism, and personal eccentricity is not underpinned by a proper grounding in English grammar.

  • Well done Southern, TfL and Boris.
    My advance snow warnings must have worked winter wonders. #
  • Snow! So Bollox to style. Gone all Norwegian and Croydon (Ray Mears) native. I'll be the one in Gore-tex jacket ,Gore-Tex boots and mittens. #
  • Watching weather on BBC News. Doubt that Boris, Southern and TfL will get me to work tomorrow, but will try. #
  • Putting Windows 7 on newly repaired laptop. Windows Experience Index is 4.1 on the lowest. #
  • "noticeable lack of snow" @ianvisits said some hours ago, but not now? Hoping that public transport IS noticeable tomorrow. Boris, step up! #

Why buy CDs? It’s instant music, stupid • The Register

0 #

Maybe it is, but I’ve bought less than ten (versus 50 or so “units” for the last 30 years or so) this year and I suspect that will be the same number as for the whole of the next decade.

    Book and go four together to get a nice table upfront. Tables seemed to sit four and you avoid standing. #
  • Though watching Seb play drums with chopsticks was worth the entrance at The Vortex tonight. Seb not in this pic. http://twitpic.com/tt5vn #
