Lachlan and Aidan

My twin sons were born yesterday, 23 June 2009. A warm welcome to the world to Lachlan Francis and Aidan James Kelly. Photos maybe coming eventually, but it'll take some negotiating – Lozz has plenty of reservations about putting family photos on the Internet.

I'm not the sort to believe much in fate, but I'm delighted to note a couple of special coincidences with this date. First, it's the birthday of one of my personal heroes: Alan Turing, the father of modern computer science. Second, it's the twentieth anniversary of Australia's connection to the Internet, which took place right here in Melbourne. Portentous of great things to come? We shall see...but delightful nonetheless!
