Fans of Ninjai
(the little ninja) will be pleased to hear that episode 11
is finally out (it's been over 2 years since episode 10 was originally released
)...phew! New-comers to the little fella's adventures, and lets face it everyone with all but the most elephantine of memories will need a refresher course, should start here
for a catch up session. Pop the kettle on, make yourself a nice cup of tea, and sit back and relax, basking in the graphical marvellousness of it all. Enjoy.
The new theme tune
for London commuting isn't for youngsters or those of you with sensitive ears (or those of you with sound cards at work), but is spot on. Also I can pretty much guarantee that 90% of folks who work in London won't detect any bad language in this at all anyway...
The much requested* return of musical Friday sees us jamming
along with Weezer
on the bongos
. I like to go slightly mad on a Friday and randomly tapping my keyboard while listening to Buddy Holly
does the trick nicely [ta Kara
*well I wanted it to return anyway.
So you've 'borrowed' some of those moistened screen wipe thingumies from work to clean your computer screen at home, but it's still not completely smear free is it? What you need to do is clean the inside of your screen, but how do you do that? Fortunately, as always, the internet has the answer. Visit the cat lick cleaning service
to get to to those hard to reach places on your monitor. It's cute and has a pussy cat. What more could you ask for?
If you haven't been to lucky enough to receive as present/read/steal someone else's book of bunny suicides
I highly recommend getting your hands on one
, but in the meantime some have turned up on-line
recently for you to enjoy. It's kind of a sick humour, but very very funny. Tickled my fancy anyway.
Imagine you're a stream of air and take an educational trip through the innards of a jet engine
with the kings of the jet engine - Rolls-Royce
. Education and
a link to Rolls-Royce
? What is the 'laces
coming to? Next thing you know I'll stop posting time wasting games. Well maybe not...

I, along with many others I suspect, have never been a huge fan of Monday. The weekend is over and the working week stretches ahead of you. Stepping out of Waterloo station into snow this morning, yes that's snow
, and not even the good kind of snowman building, too snowy to get to work snow, but the a bit wetter and colder than drizzle kind of snow, did absolutely nothing to convince me otherwise. Anyway if you're feeling down today the upside is that today is the worst day of the year
so things really can only get better. For now though I'm at work already but if you're at home reading this I urge you to get back under the overs and take the day off. It's depressing out here.

There are a few useful web sites I use when travelling around the UK like the accessible train timetable
or the route planning facility at multimap
, but Transport Direct
was a new one on me and a real eye opener.
It brings together information from both public and private travel operators and local/national government. Pump in a start point and a destination and it'll give you a comparison of all the different methods of travel between the two car/train/bus/whatever, giving times, and in the case of public transport options, how you'll need to combine walking, buses and trains to get from door to door.
I tried it out with my route from home to work and found that taking the car would be marginally faster than public transport (although parking fees and the congestion charge make it much more expensive) and that there's a regular bus that could talke me to the station every day. Superb. Next time you need to plan your journey in the UK give Transport Direct a try.
