pilot episode of a Flash animation series - covers combating evil in space and flower arrangment.
With hours - well minutes - of patience and lashings of artistic ability I've constructed a Lego minfig version of myself using the mini-mizer tool - it's hyper-accurate. Takes me back to the days where all it took to keep me happy for a whole weekend was a big bucket of Lego...
Animated Gareth Gates sings with his backing band The Stammers. For those not in the know - ie anyone outside the UK or without a TV - Gareth Gates is a pop star with a stammer made famous through the Pop Idol TV series - he actually came second in the show but that hasn't stopped him becoming possibly a greater sucess than the winner. Good to see Max Headroom and Arkwright making a comeback as part of the backing group.

Dressing for IT success - why techies are dressing for success and the days of geek chic are gone. We're one month into our new dress code policy in my office - after being totally anti at the start I really like it now - somehow it feels right - especially since we've upgraded all our hardware as well - we're one smart office now. Still dumb as toast though ;o) One thing though - shirts - how much do I hate ironing? Wearing t-shirts might not be smart but it doesn't involve bloody ironing. Although my crumpled appearance from not ironing my shirt may have contributed to the new dress code I guess...
First there was the switch campaign - soon Ellen Feiss became a star out of knowhere - then the Dark Side switch appeared - the Linux switch turned the original slightly on it's head - the Canadian switch amused - and now finally the Homestar switch is with us. Now all we need is a Strong Bad switch - get awsome!
Allegations that David Hasselhoff is the anti-christ. It would all seem far fetched if it wasn't for the large amount of compelling evidence. Fortunately even though the devil incarnate is stalking the earth - well the bits with sun drenched beaches - my $25 immortality ring courtesy of Mr Chiu will protect me. Oh and of course I'm at least several hundred miles away from the nearest sun drenched beach.
Take the test to see which Operating System you are. I'm ashamed to admit that I came out as Windows 98 - I obviously did something very wrong in a past life.

The old fashioned rivallry between chilli pepper and banana is played out through the medium of dance. Do not ask why this exists just marvel that it does.
A fantastic pictorial guide to the streets of London which I've finally posted after seeing this - and loving it - linked from virtually every UK blog I've visited. My only complaint is that there are no guides to anything South of the River - although Borough Market - just down the road from where I work - is covered in the market guide. Anyway a good guide for visitors and interesting for locals.
A full list of all the hidden bits in Strong Bad's e-mails - if you get the bandwidth exceeded message for this site try the google cache. Like I needed an excuse to read them all again. Update: A list of Strong Bad e-mail easter eggs is also available at homstarrunner.net.
Surely the most illegal car in the world - looking suspiciously like a East European Fiat 125 - goes for a spin [14Mb].
Not suitable for weirdy vegitarians - it's the British Lard Marketing Board website. Finally a home for fine British cuisine on the web. I also liked the guide to biscuit dunking on the affiliate site - biscuit.org.uk. Eating's not all about roast beef, fish & chips and chicken tikka massala in the UK you know? But it is mostly.
