The favicon gallery
shows the nice things you do with just a few pixels at your disposal. Makes me slightly ashamed of my own pitiful effort - but at least I did make an effort. Take inspiration and create a favicon
for your web site today if you haven't already.
Cherie Blair sings an impromptu version of When I'm 64
to a group of Chinese Students, gets remixed, and makes it big in Ibiza and Ayia Napa. I bet Tony wishes he hadn't been so shy now. Much love and respect to the first person who mails me an MP3 or a hyperlink to an MP3 for this soon-2-b club classic.
Update: Word on the street is that this whole story is a hoax but I now have the original MP3 of Cherie singing thanks to Belial. With this in the public domain surely a bootleg/remix will soon follow? I'm already getting Google hits for this sucker and it doesn't even exist yet...
I've spent ages now reading through half baked ideas at the half bakery
- a visit is recommended - "The Halfbakery is a communal database of original, fictitious inventions, edited by its users. It was created by people who like to speculate, both as a form of satire and as a form of creative expression
I almost fell over backwards in amazement this morning* when the rathergood kittens
appeared on television advertising Crusha
milkshake syrup. Is this a blatent rip-off or did the kittens just need some extra cash to pay their web hosting bills?** Either way it's pretty entertaining and even better than that it's cool to see Crusha
is still going; I can remember really enjoying their milkshakes when I was a kid - our milkman sold it (for some reason you couldn't get it in the shops near us) and I used to rush out to see him to get my weekly fix. I think rasberry was my favourite flavour - I could just fancy some now actually. Damn viral advertising.
(* Well I would have done if I hadn't already been in bed nursing a hangover watching Saturday morning kids television programs.)
(** Thanks to Paul for official confirmation from Joel that these are pukka rathergood kittens.)
Why why why why why why why why? For those of you not counting that was a topical eight
whys. The Octodog
- super fun to eat? Maybe. Deeply disturbing? Definately.
I had a smokin' good time at the museum of burnt food
. The first of today's postings all related to foodstuffs for no explicable reason.

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