Charing Cross BSOD

It's always amusing to see the latest technology going wrong very publicly! The infamous MS Windows "Blue Screen of Death" entertained us on the Clock Tower in St.Helier at the weekend - which made a change from the frequent ones inside the CoOp nearby :)


(it was actually the usual deeper blue, but the screen is so much brighter than the ambient light that my shot was overexposed a bit)




For more examples, see... the internet :)

Superyacht "Pacific" visits

An impressive superyacht was moored at St. Helier over the weekend. In military grey it confused some of my friends and family, but the lack of big numbers on the hull and the large windows designed for admiring the views, were giveaways that it's a pleasure vessel!

It was launched in 2010 by L├╝rssen Yachts, and measures 85 metres (278 ft), according to various websites such as www.superyachttimes.com and www.charterworld.com
