The actual Primgraph Press

Back in June I finished the offices for the Primgraph Press. At the time it was mused that it would be lovely if the Primgraph actually did have a Press.

In my spare time since I've dabbled with creating one. I had very little knowledge of how one worked. I knew how a Gutenberg press worked and I'd seen some very modern presses that sped a newspaper through in a matter of seconds. But, thanks to the aetherweb I have a far better understanding of how a 19th century press works.

Today however I was able to deliver to Miss Saffia the finished product. The Primgraph now has a scripted printing press to add that little extra flavour to the offices.

A very special thanks to Professor Avalanche for helping with the scripting.

Music Appreciation at the New Champagne Rooms

I've been asked to do the honours for this Sunday. Most people already know about my enjoyment of novelty music, so I thought I'd put out some of the other music I enjoy.

8-10pm SLT Sunday.

Hope to see you there.

Breakfast in Babbage - Schpooky Edition

This weekend's Breakfast in Babbage will be a double event. In addition to the usual collection of odd music and brain melting, it will also be Edward Pearse's 3rd Rez Day.

To help you get in the mood for the upcoming Hallowe'en festivities the music will be of the schpooky variety.

Join us at The Clarendon in New Babbage from 8am to 10am this Saturday or tune in at

Also, due to the slow creep of Daylight Savings, this will be the last Breakfast in Babbage. Watch this space for the time for next month's event ("Brunch" perhaps?)

Happy Thanksgiving

On behalf of Christine and myself I'd like to wish all of our Canadian friends a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Our hope is that as they celebrate this holiday they're in the company of good friends, loved ones and hopefully plenty of food.

Recent Additions to Pearse'd & Cut

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am proud to announce some recent additions to the range of merchandise available from my stores around the Steamlands.

First is the range of kilts and tartan skirts has had the New Babbage tartans added to it: Both the official Dress & Hunting tartans as well as two unofficial ones.

For the tinies I have released a version of my inventor's toolbelt with apron and goggles.

And finally I have added a 19th century fencing uniform. Based on the portrait of noted Swordmaster Captain Alfred Hutton. The foil is scripted for En Garde! A ladies version has been requested and will be available soon.
