Another phrase that surprisingly fails to get any Google hits

That well know anthem of Fortran programmers: 'Fanfare For The Common Block' .

This thought was inspired by finding the ELP version of Fanfare For The Common Man on Planet Rock, having flicked over to this to avoid a particularly annoying 'complaint rock' track on 6 Music.

It would seem to be a good track to feature in 'Girl With A Perl Earring'.

Gah (again)

Once again I have fallen foul of the LJ feature where the comment page gives the impression that you can post but it will be screened, then when you hit enter you get a message saying that this user has set posts to 'friends only'.
