It's alive! Somehow, he opened the box, gave it a good vacuum, and suddenly it came back to life, proving that vacuum cleaners are more useful when they aren't being used as room sculptures.

In other news, have just finished an incredible sci-fi book. It took me all of 2.5 days to rip through this one. Wolfbane, by Kornbluth and Pohl, published in 1959. It's like a precursor to the Matrix, but so much more! Rippling with ideas, philosophy and lean reasoning, this book kicks so much butt all over so many other sci-fi books I've ever read (ok, which isn't a lot, but I've read all the famous ones, like Asimov, Dick and Gibson). If you can find it, because it isn't a very popular book, I suggest you take an afternoon off and have a good feed.
