Shapiku’s cuneiforms

 

An example of Babylonian text, in its original ‘cuneiform’ script from 5,000 years ago, then transliterated into our modern Latin alphabet, then translated into English. Attributed to a ‘Sapiku of Borsippa’ it is a prediction of the future. Sapiku was a 7th century BCE astrologer and priest who was an advisor to the king of that time.

My telly’s going smart

 

Tomorrow I’ll be taking delivery of a Toshiba 32W3863DB 32″ Smart TV. It is a flatscreen telly with Smart technology, meaning I can access the internet on it, watch YouTube videos and even use my SMARTPHONE (lol) as a remote for it. I’m getting it courtesy of AO Retail Ltd. I had bought it as a treat for myself from ao.com as my old set has a missing part lost while I moved to Ilford, so therefore it doesn’t work anymore.
