All In My HeadI haven't done a diary update for ages - so here it is...

First of all apologies for my recent (and up-coming) erratic postings. Work has been somewhat hectic as I play with Oracle and SQL Server databases with a dash of JavaScript on the side all to rather tight timescales. The first part of my current project is due to go into test tomorrow and spare time is at a premium. Also tomorrow night I meet to redesign the BMT site (it needs it!) - the charity web-site I am involved with. Sleep is currently a distant memory. Fortunately an outing to Clinks Bar with the company credit card in tow beckons on Friday which is the only thing getting me through this week.

Today I cut myself off at work with Radio1 on-line via headphones so I could get on with my coding: kind of anti-social but sometimes solitude is required to really crack on. It's been ages since I've listened to the radio and I was very happy to hear that both Dido and Kosheen have new albums out soon (hear Kosheen's latest single here). It even made me find time to update my links page with a new music section.

Finally I continue to avoid doing any work to update this site with useful things like comments as quite frankly I don't have the energy in the free time I have but I have found some neat ASP Script I hope to customise which will hopefully make things easier and make it more likely that I finally get this done!

Classic snakes and ladders with an office based twist. And it's actually possible to beat the computer player. Hah! [hosted at hyro].

The Eyetop is a portable video screen built into a pair of sunglasses so you compute on the move and pretend you're in a futuristic sci-fi film. I love the kind of product that makes fiction a reality.

Is it time for Tony to receive his P45? Change the recipient by changing the URL. For readers outside the UK the P45 is the UK tax form you get when you leave a job, as such it is synonymous with getting the sack or being made redundant.

The origins of l33t speak - a modern history (inc. the role of the excellent megatokyo).

Need just the right cliché? Then use the cliché finder.

I'm enjoying my Friday night in by wigging-out to "Return of the Weather Episode " (MP3 : 5Mb) courtesy of those very finest of boot-leggers - gohomeproductions. Who would have have thought Snoop Dogg would have mixed with Crowded House so well? Also on a Friday night vibe check out the Lemon Jelly Ducks video at airside.

I always thought the Helvetica font was Apple's variant of Arial - it just shows what an ignorant fool you can be as a Micro$oft user/developer. The truth: "Helvetica was developed by the Haas Foundry of Switzerland in the 1950s. Micro$oft developed a typeface called Arial, a very similar typeface, that comes bundled with every desktop computer". Get absolution by beating merry hell out of Arial in this game of font vrs. font. If that's not enough follow it up by downloading the world's best web browser and office management software. Follow Helvetica and start a Micro$oft revolution.

Update: Got some text in a particularly sexy font you want to copy? Try what the font.

How to write a blog the easy way. I'm guilty as charged (mental note: must nick images from Google image search and pretend they are relatives).

Original computer g33k film Tron is updated for the 21st century as a computer game. My Dell flatscreen is soon to be going/glowing neon. L33t!
