SRS Blog > High-tech web browsing

Published 16th August 2005

Now and again I get a visit from one of my more high-tech customers - he's always got something interesting to talk about and we usually manage to wile away an hour or two over a cup of tea talking steam engines. In addition to a keen interest in steam, by day he's a computer whizz. 

For the last few months (and, it appears, the forseeable future) he has been working in the USA, from where he keeps in contact by email. On his last visit over here he told me that, having tired of checking the website every day he has written a program which checks it automatically and bleeps at him when it changes. Clever enough, but what really impressed me was he then uses his little organiser widget thing to browse the site - no idea how much time he actually spends working at the office...
