You know I’m not actually sure who knows about this site. I mean I know YOU lot do, but what about the other people I work with, friends and family that read this but never mention it, never comment, never PASS comment. I know my Mum and Dad read this, and my mate Keith, and…

Incitement

We were driving through to the in-laws caravan on Sunday, along the A811 which is a typical windy country road when, as we approached a blind bend, some idiot in a red Honda Civic decided to zoom up behind me and overtake, causing me to brake to let him back in – lest he be…

Firefox question – Anyone know how to display a webpage in the sidebar? Lyle asks “Huh?” so let me expand on this. In Firefox, if you select View > Sidebar, you can open various useful things like your bookmarks, or your browser history (where did all that p*rn come from!!). I want to know if…

The Spoil Your Vote website is hoping to appeal to the non-voter: At the 2005 General election, we want all those people who think their votes don’t count to get out and spoil their votes. A mass movement of spoiled votes will broadcast a new message: the choices on offer are just not good enough….

Survived Saturday. Was a great day, good company, good beer and the Grand National even offered some excitement. Jinty McGintys is a great pub and we made a few new friends – but seeing as we were taking up about a third of the pub some people didn’t have much choice! Anyway, Happy Birthday to…

Right, I’m pretty sure one of you clever types will be able to point me in the direction of a solution, preferably PHP or Javascript based. What I’m trying to do is treat an image, and an associated block of HTML (text) as one block. I’d like to be able to swap blocks depending on…

So my Gran is doing fine, still able to talk the hind legs off several donkeys and still willing to admit she’s a stubborn old bitch. All good (there is a draft post about this but I can’t finish the damn thing without bawling my eyes out… might never be posted… ). ~ Completely and…

Joanna Newsom – The Milk-Eyed Mender @ Amazon.co.uk You always remember something unique, and it was on “Later with Jools Holland” that I first heard Joanna Newsom. Sitting with her harp, performing The Book of Right-On, the rhythms of a late night jazz bass underlined the classical sounds of the upper reaches of the harp…

Thanks to the Metro (the internet; printed) for making my morning already. Page 3 features a nice photo of the new Dove soap ladies. Real women and twice as sexy as any anorexic Annie. Page 17 has a look at the latest from Marks and Sparks modelled by the number ONE lady on my “list”,…

Technorati

It’s been a while since I added Technorati tagging to my posts, has anyone used them? Found them helpful? I’m hoping they are providing a few good pointers to other related posts and so saving me the hassle of finding and posting the links myself, thus giving me a CBATG meets Technorati = web-based lifehack…

Soul of a Butterfly

The Soul of a Butterfly by Muhammad Ali. I know I’m not alone in my admiration of this man, and I know that that admiration may be flawed but when you begin to understand what he has been through in his life, Parkinson’s aside, he becomes all the more remarkable. I don’t share his religious/spiritual…

Some people say that bloggers whine and moan a lot. That they are self-absorbed and lack certain characteristics. Some even say that we only respond to instant gratification and have shortened attention spans. I wonder if anyone else is bothered about the future?

*grumble* work… deadlines… changes… pressure… ANYWAY… What say I get rid of the blogroll and go to one column on the left there. The site links under the photos and the miniblog under that.. hell I could even leave the blogroll to appear under the miniblog I guess. And what say I freshen up the…

Beck – Guero @ Amazon.co.uk Beck’s new album is a return to his Odelay days and it’s much the better for it. Kicking off with the nicely distorted guitar of E-Pro the influence of the Dust Brothers production is evident as it slides through the next track and onto the latin guitar of Missing. As…

So I bought an item on eBay. I won the auction four weeks ago. I still don’t have the item. However I have exchanged several emails from the seller and he assures me that he sent it, and from what he’s said I believe him. Or am I too trusting? It wasn’t expensive so this…
