    This week I slept in and missed my usual segment with Spencer Howson on 612 ABC Brisbane. But as Spencer blogged, I managed to do a quick spot later in the show (http://blogs.abc.net.au/queensland/2013/03/a-quickie-with-peter-black.html): "Peter Black having slept-in, our Tuesday morning technology spot looked in doubt this morning! But then, like the Almighty Zarquon at Milliway's (a Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference) Peter appeared - just in time - at the very end of the show! Today, the difference between bacn and spam, why you should never leave voicemail message and the most successful colour for dating site profile pictures."
