Michael Epstein

Assuming there are no delays in transporting Mike from Israel, the funeral will be at Southgate cemetery (Middlesex synagogue) at 11.45pm on Friday 27th May 2005.

There will be drinks at his parents house in Highgate after.

Mchael Epstein

My cousing, Mike died last night. He'd been fighting cancer for a while and was in Israel awaiting new stem-cell treatment. Unfortunately he was so weak from the previous chemotherapy treatment they couldn't do anything until he got his strength back, but he just got weaker.

He had a few troubles in his life, but in recent years lived a happy life in the South of France and built a beautiful home.

He leaves a wife Cathy and daugher Lea and son Ben (from his first marriage) and will be sorely missed.

Apple Powerbook 12"

All I can say is that its a lovely machine. Since I lost my work laptop (well had to give it back) I've been playing with a JVC MiniNote, but I had to give that back too (though it was quite nice, it's not really useful as a work system).

I managed to use a contact to get a discount and took the plunge and bought a Powerbook, the screen's nice and the keyboard is perfectly adequate for typing on. It's a great machine.

It comes with Airport Extreme, Bluetooth (and an internal modem and Ethernet). It joined my home (WEP) wireless network first time, though it didn't seem to want to register my .Mac account (though it was all OK when I logged into the mac itself).

It's got Tiger, which to me doesn't seem that different from Panther - though I was never a "power user" in terms of the nice gui stuff.

Just need to install Office, and it will be a perfectly usable portable system.

Not posting much

I went to France to see my cousin again, who's not well. He's now gone to Israel where hopefully he's going to start a new form of treatment that isn't available in Europe. Unfortunately they cant do anything for the moment as he has to get his energy up as he's lost loads of weight and is suffering from malnutrition (from the treatment over here).

I then got back and have actually started some work (only short term consultancy) but it's at least it's good work and hopefully may make a difference.

MSN spaces

Just created one, very easy from MSN Messenger - took about 30 seconds from MSN Messenger.

Oh well another system to keep updated ... or not ...

Anyway here's my space.
