The 24hr Mt. Fuji web-cam - although it mostly seems to be night time and very very dark when I look at it - but this is probably something to do with timezones. Still - it managed to remind me how much I want to visit Japan - I did manage to go once but - coincidently only for 24hrs - on a stop over back from Oz.

3D Android adventure game - I've only managed to get to start of the second level but it seems pretty good. Obviously it was only lack of time - not skill - that prevented me from progressing further.
Found this great resource for free on-line photo album services. When I finally start using my new camera - the case is due to arrive this week according to Amazon
- I'll be trying a variety of them out to see which works best for me. I was going to use my free NTL
space - but their FTP server doesn't seem to like me at all and Canon
's service doesn't start until later this year.
Well one week-ish into the new year and it's been a good one so far. Spent most of the weekend with Andy and Daniella at their gorgeous flat above Pizza Express
in Fulham - very good to catch up with friends -chill out - and of course talk techie
-rubbish with Andy. Maybe one day I'll get my act together and move closer into London - it's totally what i want but just so unaffordable. Right now I'm still in the middle of arranging my mortgage for my flat here in Ash Vale
I've spoken a couple of times recently by e-mail to lor at the ever excellent apparently nothing photolog - for some reason her stylesheet changed so I couldn't see the site in Opera any more - and when I got home from shopping today not only could I see the site again - but she's also linked to lazylaces - which is my first unless I'm very much mistaken.
Right now it's looking like an early night for me because it's back to work tomorrow with every one back from their holidays - it was very quiet last week. As I'm up to date with all the projects I had to do over Christmas I'm pretty much free tomorrow - which means I could end up just about anywhere this week.

This graphical Google browser lets you navigate around a map of the links - as recorded by Google - between sites - move from site to site and the map reorientates itself in a very groovy way. I'm hoping the reason that this site has no links - :o( - is that I've only been listed on Google
for a week
It's tough out there for a small little icon out there on the mean streets of the desktop.
Useful - and kind of nice - code/tool which links back to the last X referers for a web site. An immeadiate way to do reciprocal linking. The only trouble I can see is with referer spam
- as it's all immeadiate with no editing stage there's a strong danger you could end up linking to pr0n from your homepage - which could lead to your web host kicking you off their servers. A shame really as it seems like a very good - and friendly - idea and I'd like to include the code myself at some point. Anyway an especially big thanks to lightningfield
where I first saw this because I saw in my site stats that someone had linked into lazylaces
using this very mechanism.
A useful guide to the ins and outs of British slang - know what I mean guv?
Professional ushertte game - well I say professional I mean it's produced by Odeon
cinemas who should know what they're doing when it's comes to usherette sims - not that this actually happens when you go to the cinema. A more realistic sim would be having to stand at the back of the cinema talking to your mate and looking slightly surly whilst ignoring the fact that that floor seems to be exclusively coated in sticky drinks and popcorn. I'm guessing the game play wouldn't be quite the same though.
Give choice celebrities a knuckle-sandwich or two. I managed to show Hasselhoff and P Diddy who was boss but just couldn't get passed Stallone - by that time RSI was starting to set in. I think to lose to Rocky was honourable though.
How IT consultants work so hard to earn their shedloads of cash in amusing Flash animation format - it's funny 'cause it's true - as the saying goes. I just don't understand why there aren't more websites poking fun at these blood sucking leeches - it's people like this that are the reason I and so many of my ex-colleagues got made redundant - all the money went on paying damn consultants for their 'top quality' ideas and implementing their unrealistic strategic systems.
As it turns out though I'm much happier in my new job now - so the last laugh is on them - while they drive their Porshes home to their luxurious mansions - doh!
