A guide to the KFC impersonating
fried chicken takeaways of the Inner London area. Personal experience has shown that there really are a huge number of these especially around Streatham and Balham (but virtually every shopping street in London has one, including Borough High St., down the road from where I work. I've resisted the urge to go in).

On-line train timetables are very handy, but if you've ever used the UK national rail enquires
on-line service you'll know it works very badly, mainly due some very poor design decisions - even pressing the submit button is tricky in Mozilla (hint: use only the top portion of the button). Anyway dracos
has built a very accessible front end
to the site which I intend to use from now on. Neat.
The UK census results
are in and it would appear that 0.7% of the British population are confirmed Jedis, with Brighton topping the Jedi league table
. May the force be with you!
Update: I've been scanning through the Census site a little more and as well as our Jedi population the census results make interesting reading. For instance it shows that there are 2.4 people per hectare, which gives me plenty of room to extend my flat, and that there are over 1.5 million more women than men which increases my chances of a date this weekend. I think I'm going to be reading through these all day...

For all of you
too lazy to use the graffiti creator

This flash thingumy
that shows the relationships between the major search engines has been linked to a lot recently so you've probably seen it already, but I thought I'd give it a link anyway as it proved very useful today. I was trying to demonstrate to someone why those multiple search engine submission things were a waste of money, and how with a just a couple of free direct submissions he could have pretty much the whole thing stitched up. A nice visual demo proved my case.
