E-cigs sort-of work, but nothing like as well as high-strength patches, and the batteries don't last particularly long. I've noticed faux-libertarians like them for some reason.

I'm so glad Katy Manning's on Twitter, she's so unremittingly positive and lovely.

Going to the opening of the Alan Turing: Life's Enigma exhibition at Manchester Museum this evening. Still pissed off as all hell that the government wouldn't pardon him. And no, their bullshit excuses that "it would erase history" or "then we'd have to pardon all gay men!" don't count.

I think that the second excuse rather misses the point that that's precisely what the government should do.

Ooh! I'm going too. Though I've no idea how we might identify each other, or even if you/we'd necessarily want to.

I'll be the short Mestizo girl with glasses most likely conspiring in the corner with the Curator of Egyptology.

I was the Biology Curatorial Trainee at MM until last week when my traineeship ended.

Also short with glasses - white, greying hair, purple jumper. In fact I guess I look rather like the picture on my web site (only ten year's older and with shorter, greyer hair). I'm not sure if I'll know anyone there or not, the invite came out of the blue a bit, but if I do I'll be conspiring with misc computer types.

Ah okay. I'll keep an eye out and see if I can spot you!

Here's one of me:

Wish I'd known that was on.
And the campaign to pardon Turing isn't over - John Leech is fighting the good fight on this (as indeed he also is on the alcohol pricing Jennie complains about elsewhere). There was a vote in the Lords yesterday to pardon all gay men whose families requested it, put forward by a Lib Dem Lord who's been doing the campaigning with Leech, but it was knocked back. We'll see what happens...
