    This was in San Francisco - in 1919.

    Although, that date was a Saturday this year, too...

    This may be the point at which Johnson made his bizarre "mutant algorithm" claim.

    Someone has accidentally arranged the books along the top shelf - The Subtle Knife, Fahrenheit 451, Betrayed, The Resistance, The Exodus, The Toll, Crisis Point, Glass Houses and The Twits.

    On the second shelf down, to the right, behind his shoulder, is Terry Pratchett's Guards! Guards! - which seems to be the manual they are using...

    Well it's ok to blame and sod off a civil servant, or a 'mutant algorithm.' (Bloody good name for a band you must admit.)

    An algorithm is a 'knitting pattern' for a computer, or a series of instructions for an MFI flatpack. I don't mean this in any sort of insulting way, computers, whether you like it or not, pretty much facilitate or even run much of the world's systems today.

    But more and more (and there's the smell of Cummings behind some of this) I can't help but think this government has a secret stack of old MFI flatpack algorithms suitably converted into assembler code and inserted into government departments by... shall we say bald headed creepy tw@ts.

    I guess going down with the ship, or falling on your sword has gone out of fashion providing you can scurry under the nearest rock.

    It has been pointed out that we need a "Careful Now" stamp for fragile items.
