I do like to get my daily dose of Calvin and Hobbes
, but now you and get every episode ever
on one web site. It kind of feels like cheating but I can't resist dipping in here and there to have a peek.
I always find the key to a good cocktail is to drink it. If however you take a more intelligent approach, such as if you are a barman (bless you), you may find the Mixilator
- an on-line random cocktail generator - quite useful. Pick from a variety of criteria, including strength
, to build a cocktail to suit your mood. Just need that liquid delivery over TCP/IP interface and it would be perfect.
Hold the front page! Hold whatever you are doing! You have to play this now! Point'n'click
game? Check! Beautiful graphics? Check! Magical sounds? Check! Ability to distract you from whatever you should be doing? Check! If Shift
doesn't make you all warm and fuzzy inside you're a cold hearted beast I tells yer! Monday blues be gone! Too many exclamation marks? Maybe! *Deep breaths*

More of Sabrina
's adventures for your point'n'click
ing delight (thanks to the commentators
for picking up on this gem
). Sangar Sabrina
is definately an easier game (use the tab
key if you really are stuck, but you shouldn't have to) but has a bit more of that lovely samorost
vibe - it doesn't come close to the original
in my book though.
Not that my translation of English into Russian would be up to much but the English translation of this dark Russian tale
kind of lightens up what would otherwise be a bit of a downer of a flash animated story. Great animation either way though.

Oh Micro$oft! I wasn't going to mention your laughable guide to l33t (aka A parent's primer to computer slang
), but you leave me no choice. After 2 days configuring 6 applications on IIS6 spread over 4 Windows 2003 servers I'm at the end of my tether and I have no more patience with you. I've been chasing missing session variables
(the application recycling tip on this link seems to work btw) and your complete inability to hang on to the auth_type server variable
which has trashed every site I've been working on. How much time have I wasted due to things you allege are only fixed in SP1, which isn't even released yet? Too bloody much - that's how much. The fact that the servers have been located in Beijing, Houston, The City and my own office but remote desktop has allowed me to do all the work from my own desk hasn't calmed me down any either. I like air travel. The flights would have been nice. Arrrrrrgggggh!!!!

A modern tale of a woman's life
showing how hard things can be trying to fulfill a 9-5 working life style and yet still living up to traditional expectations as well. Of course the animation and music are pretty cool too, which is why I've posted it today ;o) [by h-e-m
The increasingly irregular lazylaces feature that is 'Musical Friday' returns for a guest appearance with this live action flash film feature, the disco elevator
- starring the lift in my office building. OK, I lied about that last part. Everyone knows that my lift is too old and asthmatic for disco.
I'm working hard at the moment. The snow I saw in Aberdeen at the weekend (pics to follow as soon as I get round to unpacking) has followed me back to London. I need cheering up. What I need is a really good new point'n'click
game. What I need is another installment of samorost
-esque goodness. And what do you know? There is one
. Stop what you are doing and get playing now!
Hot on the heals of Hazel's cartoon
, my inbox pinged to alert me to the arrival of this photoshopped masterpiece
from David (why weren't you working you slacker?). I can't help but feel this is just the tip of a Charles and Camilla
iceberg of e-mail abuse between now and April though.
Some topical cartoonery
landed in my in-basket today courtesy of Hazel, my aunt with far too much time on her hands. Oh how we English revere our royal family...
...on another note, apologies for the slow/non-existant postings recently, I could get into a long discussion with you about how much more I'm working with my new job role (development team leader, no less), but quite frankly I just can't be bothered as I'm so tired. Lets just say I'm busy like you wouldn't believe. I'm very slowly getting back on top of things though so, cross fingers, more posts again soon.
