Pick a week, any week

Seemingly it's International TV Turnoff Week, National Depression Week, National Stop Snoring Week, and World Lab Animal Week.So switch off the television set, cheer up, lie on your front, and only use that smelly stuff you got at Xmas from the Body Shop.

Monday morning

As I mentioned it will be a quiet (ish) week here at Snowgoon Towers. It's the 'last week' of the project, and the usual chaos is descending! Need to be on-the-ball, pushing the envelope... yadda yadda yadda. I even went to bed early last night to make sure I was properly refreshed. Of course I


Only problem with working over the weekend, well ONE of the problems with working over the weekend, is just how tired it makes you. No respite at all.Of course I've got a bloody cheek to say I'm knackered, it's not like I've run 26 miles 385 yards* today (I've barely walked further than to and

Fornication City!!

OK, if anyone wants an invite to Breedster (which is quite bizarre to be honest), let me know. First three comments get an invite - yes, I've got THREE eggs ready to hand out (this, apparently is a good thing although I'm sure the 'egg' thing is meant to be the ladies job... hmmm) .

RSI Sunday

I don't pay much attention to Spam, if they make it to my mailbox (which they do at work as they won't let me use MailWasher.. pah!) I usually just Shift+Delete the buggers.But then I installed Office 2003, and Outlook has a new message notification thingy - it's quite smart actually - which pops up

Lunch break

Five of us in the office, and I've only a couple of hours to go as I need to get home by 4pm (ish). We are off out tonight for dinner with Louise's Granda. It's a family thing and I'm not sure how it will be, but hey, it's a free meal!Unfortunately the sun seems


I like the office at the weekend. In a way. It's so quiet, I'm the only one here. S'pos I'd better do some work.

Customisation: Take 2

So you wanna see my desktop then?If you can make it out on this resized screenshot - you'll spot that I've got a different XP Style running. Rob mentioned StyleXP in a comment, which will let you do this and a lot more, but I didn't like the 2MB (!!) overhead, and found a nice


I've been getting back skinning and customisation of my desktop recently thanks to Samurize, Neowin and (the sadly defunct but still findable with Google) Y'z Dock. It's slightly addictive mind you - and I find myself changing things a lot more than I used to... especially when you come across a screenshot of someone else's


Caron Keating R.I.P., create World Blogs page, finish compiling book list, which car to buy?, compile DVD list, find PNG icons for Y'z Dock, Kevin McDermott Orchestra CD needs replacing (it's almost transparent), Pick up futon tonight, clear out colleagues desk for her, when is ellipitical trainer arriving?, gas bill needs paying, Stuart's birthday, Mother-in-laws

This and that

Firstly a small clarification. Yesterday's "Confused" post was not suggesting that people who HAVE had children are doing something wrong or bad or evil. It was merely my (knee-jerk) reaction to the news filtering through my head at the time. I'm fully aware that the world can be, and frequently is, a good place. Remember,


Warning: this post will NOT induce a cheery happy persona.So, Bush has made his address and assured people that "as Germany and Japan can attest, we are liberators". Nice touch there.Then you read that the U.S. is Planting WMDs in Iraq, and that gets you wondering. Then you are sent a link, from an increduluous
