11:07 pm: 30 January - comes the revolution
On 30 January 1984, I started work at NCR Limited in Sheldon, Birmingham, my first job after graduating. This means that anything that happened there before that date is Not My Fault.
It's also four weeks exactly since I started my most recent job.
30 January was also proposed as the date for the revolution to be commemorated, as it was the date between the birthdays of two of the so-called Keble "Gang of Four" (the dates were 29 Jan, 31 Jan, 30 Jun and 29 Dec) - realistically, we were never going to organise a revolution, not least because we would have been unlikely to agree on what ideology the new republic would follow.
But that's the way January 30 is.

Is that the same NCR we have here? It's where my brother first got drunk, at an NCR Christmas party - he was seventeen and someone spiked the punch!
