Even more point'n'click flash game adventure fun. Terra Realms
seems a bit more difficult than Leo's Great Day
since I didn't complete it in the first 10 minutes of play, and I now seem to be disorientated in a cave. Anyway, just how many of these things I play until part 2 of the Crimson Room
arrives I don't know, but I haven't got bored of them yet.
Help Leo escape
his buried home, as he has a very bad Monday, in this point'n'click adventure game. Kind of along the same lines as the Crimson Room
, but not nearly as challenging. Cute graphics though.
A photographic trip around the streets and history of film set New York.
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
