Dreaming of dreams

I had a lucid dream the other morning. Louise had gotten up early and I dozed off again to grab a final 15 mins in bed. When I say dozed off, I really mean that I was vaguely aware of her alarm going off before nodding back off some seconds later. Nanoseconds that is... When

Life with the Cocoon

DISCLAIMER: I was given an O2 Cocoon by a PR firm. I am under no obligation to blog about it at all, nor was I to only mention it if the 'review' was favourable. If this post offends you, then feel free to leave. But if you were thinking of buying one... read on. As

Another week, another quick set of links. I really should start using one of these new fangled "social bookmarking" sites for this, shouldn't I. Problem is I already have a del.icio.us account for personal use, and I like being able to add some thoughts about the links but it limits that slightly. In saying that,

WordPress 2.3

Upgrade complete - sidebar borked. Apparently the introduction of the new tagging doo dah means a table is now no longer valid, the table that quite a few plugins were using, one of which was powering my miniblog posts. Hence why they've all, suddenly, appeared here. So, until I get some free time to get

apple insider

Apple Insider is doing a set of posts, in the lead up to the new version of OSX (Leopard), entitled "Road to Mac OS X Leopard". So far they've covered the history of the Dock and the Finder. Despite the titles, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour do not appear.

A pound of guilt

Needless to say, portions of the internet are abuzz, discussing the ins, outs and possible impact of the way Radiohead have handled their recent album sales (they are allowing the buyer to set the price when downloading the MP3s, and yes, you can set the price to zero - more on that here).

New logo for Wacom - yes, that trumpety thing floating about on the page - from the same people who created the London Olympic logo. If you ever get a proposal from Wolff Olins, RUN FOR THE HILLS!! (via)

benders big score

A Futurama feature length adventure (video) - Benders Big Score, no less. Yay! A secret pleasure of mine.. and I know my mate Stuart will be on this like.. ummm.. what's the phrase again "white on rice??"


Why do normal people get tattoos? - asks the BBC News Magazine. To which my response would be "define normal". Anyway, I've discussed mine here before and the last line of the post is still right: "My tattoos say, I’m not what you think I am."

Mailing Lists

I'm a member of a few mailing lists, TechWR, IAI, ISTC, Framers, WebWorks, to name but a few. Add in several high volume internal mailing lists and my email count easily tops out at a couple of hundred a day. Naturally I filter all of these into folders, and not all are read, but it
