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].

When It FallsWell 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...

Today one of my fellow developers asked me if I knew the regular expression for a particlar match he wanted to do. I was just about to launch into an answer when I realised that I don't KNOW regular expressions at all, but simply re-use the same ones over and over again as I only ever need them for one or two specific purposes. I was too busy to try and look into it with him today, but what do you know, I get home today and randomly come across this site explaining all about this mysterious beast, including a nice specific bit about JavaScript.

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.

This 404 at arbitaryconstant 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 (ccTLDs), 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).
