We has a Nokia N97, yes we does... Gollum! Gollum!

Also fenced for Saxon at the Lansdowne Club tonight. Weird thing is I used to work just round the corner in Curzon Street and I never realised the club was there. Mind you, I was really only notionally based there - most of that time was actually spent in Finland. Spectacular photos on the walls - guys with massive handlebar moustaches, stripey blazers, women fencing in skirts.

Performance wise, I won 2, lost 1 fencing for first epée. Overall, we lost that 6-3, won the second epée 6-3 and (I think) won foil 7-2 so overall, a decent win for us. Weird thing is, all my bouts, including another one I fenced and won after the match, all finished 5-4! Still, a couple of my wins involved coming back from a 3-0 deficit so I should complain too much. Really should have won the first one as well though - highlights the importance of doing some warmup hits before a match, I suppose!

It is very nice :-)

It reminds me of a conversation I had with colleagues back in 1999 (yes, really!) when I said my dream device would be a combination of my then PDA (a Psion Series 3c) and WAP phone (then a Nokia 7110). It's taken some 10 years but this little baby even has the QWERTY keyboard (albeit a little more cramped than the 3c's...)
