I’m definitely getting old as my ears are still lightly ringing after a fantastic gig last night. Met up with Sudhesh for a drink beforehand, and Alex joined us in the queue. As we entered the first support act was on, didn’t catch the name. One guy, some samples and beats… he was from Bristol…..

Blogger is being an arse. As zoe recently found out they’ve started adding extra code to each post, thereby screwing up her site and (for a short while last night) my miniblog. So until they sort it out the miniblog is on hiatus. UPDATE: Fixed zoe’s site thanks to this forum post. Will look at…

CSS gurus that is. Have a gander at this page and then tell me why I can’t get the navigation (Home, Gallery, Links) to center align in that DIV?! To break it down a little, the DIV under the banner is TOPNAV, within that is an unordered list with an id of NAVLIST. I’ve tried…

a million little pieces by james frey I’ve read a few books like this not many and occasionally it’s seemed to be a design decision rather than a writing decision the reasoning more to do with being clever or arty or whatever but for this book it feels right correct spot on and definitely matches…

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….

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…

I have four blogrolls, the one on the left, one for “Other Blogs”, one for PhotoBlogs and an “Auditioning” blogroll. I’ve come to rely on and be comfortable working with them. They are loaded into a custom home page every time I start my browser. I can’t use bl.ogs as it only allows one “blogroll”….

Bank Holiday, still no sign of my pay. Feckers. Still other events are bringing context and focus. My Gran fell last night, had to kick in the front door to get to her and she is now in hospital. Everything else is hidden behind a barrier of grey, smudged and blurry like the sky outside….

Music is a huge part of my life yet I don’t really write that much about it here. Odd that. ~ I now have three Mozilla applications installed, Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird (calendar application). I know have three separate folders in my Start menu, one for each. Why not one top level folder “Mozilla” and…

The scene: A rather bemused man shuffles onto the darkened stage. He’s dressed in a bad suit, is carrying a few extra pounds (or 20), but seems like someone who you’d describe as “quite a nice guy”. He approaches the isolation of the spotlight, and steps up to the lone microphone. “Er… hello” he says,…

Reading A quick thanks to everyone who took the time to a/ read my book list b/ suggested what I should read next. After some deliberation I plumped for Ghostwritten (although if I’m honest, it’s mainly because it’s been sitting on my shelf the longest, came recommended by Caterina if I remember correctly). Don’t know…

In what will no doubt be THE blog news of the week – Jason Kottke has quit his job and will be doing kottke.org as a full-time job. I’m intrigued by this, particularly as he is calling for patrons to donate money to his venture. More thoughts on this later but for the meantime: 1….

Business Idea

I see a lot of things online that I would like to purchase. Unfortunately a lot of them (increasingly so) are in the US, and I’ll be honest and say that I’m not going to pay almost the same again for the postage of an item. So here’s the idea – club together with other…
