The final month and a bit quieter until the last few days. I fitted in 2 trips to Derby and also visited the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley at long last. At the start of the year i wanted to expand my horizons a bit and visit many more places in this great country and i certainly did that but there will be more to come in 2016 and i am already busy planning things.
Many people will reflect on the year of course, to me 2015 is an important year in history as it marked quite clearly that we are headed into darkness in the years and decades to come. The optimism for the future which was common only a few years ago seems to be dissipating as people come to grips with a world and environment we have done our best to abuse and destroy over the last few centuries fighting back.
Personally i feel its too late to stop the rot, which might be why i am so keen to do stuff now. I can see an end to our glorious industrial civilisation. I hope i'm wrong but i feel we will look back on this time as a golden age and regret we didn't heed the warnings before it was too late (and let's face it the warning signs were there back when i was in school and even earlier). That doesn't mean that i think we are all doomed but unfortunately we are going to have to accept things will have to change and not always for the better. But on that happy note i would like to visit my readers a happy new year!
Song of the month was "Who's on the line" by Device.
