The latest computer peripheral is the kitten. Strangely ignored on all the mainstream tech sites
and barely touched on within the blogging community
, for some time the kitten has been a main-stay of business technology in many a corporate server room, but with the recent emergance of kitten technology into the domestic market things are about to get big for the kitten. Read the first kitten review
which includes a handy puppy, baby, video card comparison chart.
Randomly browse the Internet through the medium of jumbled up pictures. Strangely entertaining [nicked from Wastrel Division
Listen ya crazy fool see this link - it's lazylaces t-ified! Convert any web site into Mr T speak - complete with Mr T pictures and soundbites - with this handy web tool. Alternatively lock up your web site in an old shed with the A-Team (if you can find them) and a few crusty old tools and bits of scrap metal and see what they come up with.
I'm feeling very very tired right now as I've had a busy 2 days at work and I went out for drinks with Andy last night. Anyway while I was out I remembered I had a few pics from my birthday on my camera so here they are along with my "The Cheat
" t-shirt which arrived in the post today.
Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions are to be released for viewing at IMAX as well as regular cinemas. Superb news as (a). IMAX is fantastic technology normally let down by really poor films (b). The IMAX at Waterloo is on my way to the station from the office [via Barnski
Firewalls up everyone - it's the attack of the spam zombies. I'm currently using ZoneAlarm
which works very well and what's more it's free - recommended!
A guide to etiquette for visitors to Japan which hopefully will come in useful some day. Going to Japan is the big holiday I keep planning but never actually do - all the more so on a rainy morning in London like today.
A collection of 360º pictures of London presented in Java Applet format.Includes Borough Market
and the Tate Modern
just down the road from where I work.
1. What was the last TV show you watched?
The first of the new series of Will and Grace
- they're back and better than ever.
2. What was the last thing you complained about? Micro$oft Word. It destroyed a 64 page document (including my saved copy) I was working on this morning meaning I had to start again. It made me so happy - it's not like I'm the world's biggest fan of documentation as it is. At home I use Open Office which I would encourage everyone to use instead off bloody Micro$oft Office.
3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say? My friend Jules. I called her a bitch via text message. Hmmm...on second thoughts perhaps that doesn't count. I did mean it affectionately. Honest.
4. What was the last thing you threw away? The pile of junk mail waiting for me when I got home from work today. I did a similar thing with 128 spam messages sitting in one of my hotmail accounts yesterday.
5. What was the last website that you visited? Chasing Daisy having followed Daisy's comments on my conversation with Manly Smell. Just before that I was living in dream land at Apple - drooling over a Power Mac.
A guide - originally intended for Japanese vistors - on how to survive everyday life in England - but it works and is useful for any nationality. Even for a Brit like me it points out some fabulous home truths. I've linked to the pub crawl
page as this rang very true indeed. Spot on.
It might seem like another ordinary day stuck in the office - but beware it can all go horribly wrong when office supplies attack. This photo gallery captures some of the more gory moments - although it doesn't touch MS Word's treatment - and subsequent total trashing - of a 64 page document I was writing today.
The other week I posted
the NASA picture of London at night
and now - thanks to the manly smell
of a pipe - I've found this flash version
