Pah

Lethargic, run-down, wanna be anywhere else. Wallpapered bathroom (well Mum & Dad did it and I helped for the high bits), and now just the finishing touches to be done. Ohh and a website design to finish. Ohhh and road tax to buy, gate hinges to order, and … ohh lots of little jobs that I keep putting off. It’s only a blip, a temporary downturn, a minor glitch. Ultimately, I can’t be arsed. I wanna go and lie in my bed. For a week. Or five. Pah. (Probably just after effects of Blogathon, I know, I know… but still… pah…)

I survived Blogathon 2003

Much harder than I thought it would be, but great fun. Raised £214 for Amnesty, and in total the Blogathon will probably break the £100k barrier for the first time (£97k and counting at the moment). You can still sponsor me (lines close in about 24 hours). The posts will remain archived here (also includes 25 photos for my 26 things entry). Thanks to everyone who dropped by with a comment, or popped up on Messenger, I really couldn’t have done it without you guys. I’m gonna pull together a few links of the sites I visited the most during the 24 hour period, and the Blogathon site will be update over the coming days with the award winners and …

Nowt to say

It’s Friday. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment just to make sure the mole on my back isn’t an alien and is, in fact, a mole, and loads to do. The Blogathon starts tomorrow, so I’m taking the ‘day’ off from blogging here (and I’m hoping that last night’s headache and nausea were a one off). Have a good weekend, and please drop by on Saturday and say hi (any time after 2pm when the Blogathon starts).

Boogers

Ev has pointed out a couple of ‘temporary’ email services which may help you combat spam (to a degree). Of course HIS archives are working… (thanks for the email Pinky, I’ve been trying to fix them for ages).

Company Blogs

“… blogs, and their usefulness as a marketing tool, are only as good at their content. “Someone who didn’t have anything to say before he or she had a blog is not going to have anything to say after they have one,” … “ Community is out, blogs are in. But isn’t this old news?

Aspire

We’ve all worked on little home projects, even if it’s ‘just’ your website. You take pride and care in getting things how you envision them. Rustboy is a CGI film that takes that a step further as it is produced using ‘home software’. Looks.. awesome already! (via I love everything)

Escape!

Meetings all day. Work done = zero. How does that work then? Still, working at home tomorrow and Friday, reviewing some documents and doing a little research into some stuff for work (XML, single source, can’t say more than that). Managed to get some pics done for the Blogathon/26 things at lunchtime. Only a few to go, a couple of which I’ll need to take at night in Glasgow, but I’m confident that I’ll have 26 photos by the weekend. Whether they’ll be 26 good photos is another issue.
