If you're like me you can visit Blockbuster
, tour all the shelves, and emerge filmless, convinced that there are no 'good' films. What to rent
is a free on-line service that matches films to your personality combined with your current mood - it even allows for the fact that sometimes you may want to watch a film that you wouldn't normally want to. No more indecision with my rentals.
A quick check of the calendar reveals it's less than a week until Pancake Day
. I'm off work next week so it's going to be a pancake-fest for me next Tuesday. I'm rubbing my tummy already...[thanks for the heads-up Preeti
Well strike me down - in an unprecedented move NTL
my stuffy old ISP have shocked me with another
link worthy of a mention. I'm quite honestly shocked to reveal that news of Zero 7
's new album, When It Falls
, was broken to me by ntlworld
. Are they ahead of the game, or is it (I fear) that I'm massively out of touch? Christ it's less than 2 months until I'm 30. Help!!!
If you don't know what a regular expression
is look away now. They're easily the scariest looking computer code you could ever think of, with the possible exception of raw machine code, and they are far from "regular". If however you need to harness their power like I occasionally do, read on...
Top of my to-do list is to now learn regular expression syntax properly. Of course my to-do list is notoriously nebulous so I probably won't be becoming an expert in the near future.
could almost have been written for the fuddmeister
. More disturbingly though it's provided me with conclusive proof that I've forgotten all my A-Level maths as I'm completely unable to confirm whether it's correct, which is made worse by the fact that I remember just enough to know it's not particularly difficult. Curse my old(ish) age.
The biggest ever diamond
has been found, estimated to be close to 10 billion trillion trillion carats, which is bigger than the moon. Unfortunately it's floating in space 50 light-years from earth, and if it ever made the voyage to earth we'd only be fabulously wealthy for a brief instant, before we were all fabulously dead (I'm ignoring some laws of supply & demand here as I think we'd have bigger things to worry about than split second economic trends). All in all just a bit too much bling to handle.
I'm getting the hang of my country code
top level domains (ccTLD
s), but once in a while I'm forced to hunt out a reference site to look one up that I don't recognise. This time I'm posting a link to it so I don't lose it again. Thanks to celes
who I couldn't work out is in the Philippines (.ph
Q. What could be better than a wiki
packed full of Homestar Runner
A. A wiki packed full of Strong Bad email information.
I drank too much last night. I thought what time it was now. I felt thirst of the throat. The bed was different from usual. Is this a hotel? No, it does not seem to be a hotel. I am shut up. I have to escape...
Can you escape the Crimson Room? Put your thinking hat on, collect the objects, click, click again, and click some more, in this tricky puzzle game. It took me a while, but I got out in the end (post for help via the comments if you need it), can anyone tell me what the CD case was for though?
Take a break from your web browsing over at The Cheeky Beaver
on-line public house. Newly opened, but it comes complete with nicotine stained ceiling and beer soaked carpet for that authentic feel. Over a pint why not ogle the bar maid or talk football stats with Les the landlord? Mine's a pint of best and that's my quid on the pool table...
