Falklands Night

Watched the archive coverage part of BBC Parliament’s Falklands Night yesterday evening.

The Falklands War is one of my earliest memories of the news (I was eight years old at the time), so it was fascinating to watch old editions of the BBC News, Question Time, and Newsnight from that time.

It’s being repeated on the 17th June, so if you’re in the UK, and have the slightest interest in the Falklands War, make some time to watch it. It’s just a pity that such a gem has been hidden away on BBC Parliament. Surely it’s at least worth showing on BBC Four, where it’s likely to find a larger audience.


Intrigued by Eurogamer’s 10/10 review for Slitherlink on the Nintendo DS, I did some digging and discovered PocketLoop, which is a freeware clone for Windows Mobile.

I’m not sure the game justifies 10/10, but it’s good fun, and is worth downloading if you enjoy puzzle games.

One issue to be aware of is that the game need Microsoft’s .NET Compact Framework installed on your device. There are several different versions available, but 2.0.2, which seems to be the most recent, worked fine for me. Unfortunately the framework takes quite a lot of memory, so it’s probably not appropriate if space is tight.
