I haven't done a diary update for ages - so here it is...
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!

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.
