Mike Rowse After reviewing recent events, I have concluded I may be going slightly crazy. That is not as bad as it sounds, because I am not alone. Take this matter of the typhoon that passed by this week. As soon as the news spread that the No8 storm signal was likely to go up…

    Finally, finally, the BBC is offering an HD channel in Asia.  Rather than a BBC HD channel, they have converted BBC Knowledge to HD (at least on PCCW’s Now TV).  Watching something like Africa in HD is a totally different experience to the rather poor quality murkyvision we have had to suffer up until now (though, yes, it has been shown on HD by TVB).

As an architect and engineer, I have great enthusiasm for the built wonders of the world: the pyramids of Giza, Brunellschi's dome, the Empire State Building, London Bridge...the list goes on and on.

I enjoyed answering emails from home with a pup licking my feet while the other was trying to help me type despite knowing that she isn't allowed on the sofa.

When we arrived at the unfashionably early time of 10pm, the club was already packed due to the all you can drink for three hours limit. It's a good business model because the club can gain patronage for the earlier portion of the evening and then open its doors for regular business after midnight when most of the LKF patrons start migrating from cocktail lounges to dance clubs. As for the music, the DJ started out with a fantastic set that very quickly became mediocre. It was…

    All the Hong Kong and Central Chinese Governments' flummery about so-called constitutional reform (AKA ways of ensuring the maintenance of the tyranny of the elite) put me in mind of a nice passage in CS Lewis's The Abolition of Man. Written while Europe was being oppressed by and fighting back against the tyranny of Nazi Germany, this little book has become something of a sleeper hit in the seventy years since it was published. Lewis's central thesis is that you can neither invent new systems of value nor pick and choose bits to "live by" (or, more pertinently in respect of the Hong Kong…
