Long bag of info from John today on what to bring and what not to wear. Nothing I hadn’t guessed. Flights confirmed at last meanwhile. Am Bangalore bound on 20 September. John appears to have left small case of all medicines, including malaria pills and anti-asthma stuff at Heathrow. A true Homer moment. Disappointed lack of Linux-based internet titles in back catalogue. Did search round Apache Foundation site though. Amazing quite how groovy some of this stuff is. Must revisit the Jetspeed engine when I get a chance. First NFL roundup of the season - Patriots lost <sigh>
