ACME License Maker
Welcome back off holiday to Wastrel Division - oh the mysterious speeding up of time outside of work - anyway straight back to top posting form with the Acme License Generator - pretend you're in prison by making license plates.

Look away now if you hate Micro$oft - these links are all articles I've found recently that have been really useful when I've been installing IIS intranet systems.

First up : "Session Variables Do Not Persist Between Requests After You Install Internet Explorer Security Patch" or to put it another way "don't use underscores in server names" (this last link refers to my own notes on the subject, Micro$oft's solution of renaming the server not always being particularly practical in a real world situation).

Secondly - "ASP Session Variables Empty When Office 2000 MIME Types Are Streamed with Internet Explorer" - i.e. nothing or a JavaScript error (bizzarely in the form of a graphic of the letter J) appear in the Word Document or Excel Spreadsheet you've tried to dynamically display within MSIE by changing the MIME Types in your ASP code. Read Micro$oft's notes for the full details but it basically boils down to installing the latest service pack for MS Office to fix the problem.

Finally some background reading in the DNS Centre for Windows 2000.

A very lazy Sunday today with only one link. I picked up a copy of Private Eye on the way home from Fulham today which I haven't read in ages - still as funny as ever although it's a shame the web site misses all the political gossip - it does have all the cartoons though.

For those slow days on your weblog it's the apathetic weblog generator - "I've just been letting everything wash over me recently. I've just been hanging out doing nothing. Not much on my mind today. I can't be bothered with anything these days. I just don't have anything to say , but whatever. Basically nothing seems worth doing, but it's not important".

Man arrested for insider trading claims he is a time traveller from the year 2256 - "With an initial investment of only $800, in two weeks' time he had a portfolio valued at over $350 million. Every trade he made capitalized on unexpected business developments, which simply can't be pure luck" - this whole article read reads like some kind of film script [Found at Opticle Poptitude].

Update: Word on the street is this story was a mis-timed April Fool and not a word is true. Could be. OR it could be that they are spreading this news to discredit the original story and it's all a conspiracy.

The science of a pint of the black stuff : When I buy a pint of Guinness there is no doubt the liquid is black. Yet the bubbles that settle on top, which are made of the same stuff, are white. The same is true of many types of beer. Why?

Super Mario RampageNintendo's iconic Mario goes on a killing rampage. Must be the pressure of fixing all those burst pipes. I don't know...plumbers these days...Update: This game was out of action but is now thankfully hosted at Newgrounds [A BurstFilms game].

No Strike For MeWell I haven't posted any diary entries for ages - if you don't count the new photolog - but I've been driven to put finger to keyboard by the fact that I found out 5 minutes before I left work that there is a train strike tomorrow. Hooray I thought - what a fantabulous excuse for Friday off - but no South West Trains are uneffected by the strike. A*se.

Still - don't know what I am complaining about - work has been rather good fun recently. I've still mainly been in the City but have also had a couple of visits to Wandsworth which made a nice change of scenery and brought up lots of new IIS challenges when I thought I had seen them all now.

Outside of work - after last week which was outrageous - it's been a very quiet week this week but that's all due to change on Saturday with Andy's birthday drinks - that sees another pub crawl down the Thames for me. I could go pro at this soon. As always the arrival of Andy's birthday means that mine is just round the corner - I hit 29 this year. Current favourite for venue is Lowlander which I was planning on visiting with Adrian anyway - who I better let in on this plan. More on this nearer the time but expect no pictures as Adrian has banned them.

Meet Mr Toast - who is possibly a less well educated relative of Dr Toast - in his imaginary world.
