All over the interwebnet this one, but I like this article, and more specifically some of the comments after it (I would stop after the first 20 or so comments as they degenerate into the usual childish flaming): Emancipating Hard Drives.

Favourite Comment: “I perceive Los Angeles County as discriminatory. Please remove it from itself.”

One advantage of not really having much time to write about anything means that I can take great pleasure in pointing you to some choice pieces written by others.

For example:
I was a prepubescent hooker – A must read if you don’t really ‘get’ rugby.
Things that happen in 1000-acre woods – because I got the same mental image and feel it only fair that you should too.
The Munch Bunch – why carrots are bad to eat… sorta…

It’s not often you find out (thanks Izb) about a brand new blog (only two posts so far) but as we used to work with her I guess it was insider knowledge…

Is it home time yet? – Scottish woman quits job to travel……runs out of cash, and discovers the joy of contracting.

I’ve neglected you all today and I feel bad.

Actually I couldn’t care less as I’ve got a headache and I’m off to bed, but it’s nice to pretend.

Suffice to say that “real life” got in the road of my blog again.

Ohh and I may have left a few ‘snippy’ comments around, so I apologise. I’m just a grumpy bastard.

In fact I even restrained myself far enough to NOT post this – “Will people stop writing things like best.car.in.the.world, or best.song.ever! as it is beginning to piss me off!” – which is probably just as well as I’ve done it in my time and I know that some people find my over (and mistaken) use of ellipsis’s to be far more annoying and far worse a crime …

Anyway, to bed!

Should I mention I’m working at home today?

(OK, second attempt to post this, first one disappeared into the ether)

Most of my news, as regular readers will know, comes from the behemoth that is the BBC News website. The only reason I mention this is to confirm that I visit it a lot. OK, agreed?

So you’ll understand that the following item was gathered from there as I happened across it, I wasn’t looking for information of this sort at all… and to be honest I kinda wished I hadn’t read it now..

WARNING! If you have just eaten I would let your stomach settle before reading on…

Invasion of the Bodysnatchers: “His patience was rewarded when a brown worm-like creature emerged from his right nostril and looked around.
‘I swear it had two beady eyes on it. And it came out two or three inches, looked around and then retracted. I thought it was a dream, a vision of some sort.’ “
