Cassette cover art

A few years ago I wrote that I had successfully digitised my precious collection of music tapes. The same announcement also mentioned a collection of ready-to-use pictures to use for cover art. Well, my stash of envelopes full of small pictures turned up again a few days ago. So I emptied out their contents over the scanner. Continue reading

The letter from the barrister’s wife

Everybody gets to taste some spam while it slips through our filters to find its way into our mailboxes before we dutifully delete it without as much as sparing another thought about its contents and origins. And if you’ve been online for as long as I then there’s little that surprises you anymore where this scourge is concerned. But a few weeks ago something managed to do exactly that. Continue reading
