Flattery will get you nowhere

Comments great blog Posted by: Diet Pills at September 30, 2003 05:52 AM Thank you. I appreciate your comment. Somehow I'd feel you were more sincere though if you hadn't added a link to a diet pills site. Posted by:...

Zip, zilch, nowt.

Just cleaning a few bookmarks out of my favourites list. NaDa - Perhaps the worlds first perfect piece of software. Does exactly what it's supposed to, on every platform....

Place cards

I'm feeling a little poorly today. RSVP distracted me for a few minutes. Anyone who's tried to organise the seating plan for a wedding or similar should have a running start at this game....

Lessons in DJing

Ever wanted to be a scratch DJ. It's exactly like this, I promise....

Kill Spam Leeches

Lisa found a useful little tool. A link to the spambot stopper on your blog should be picked up by those horrible little email leech programs, you know the ones that find your address on the web and then send...

ABBAMatrix

ABBAMATRIX is stupid and completely pointless. The animation is pants too. But it's still hilarious....

Do what?

Can anyone explain the latest comment on this entry? The one that begins "i was just informed by ebay..." I can quite understand the sentiment but it's a weird forum in which to express it. How is she? A regular...

More Lemming than Buffalo

I think wKen is a little depressed, but I can't disagree with his current view on life and humanity. I would possibly change the animal analogy. I'm thinking that we're maybe more Lemming than Buffalo. There is no Men on...

The end is nigh!

No, really. It is. It really is. Doom prophesy courtesy of Lisa....

Debut Debacle

Today, almost completely unexpectedly, I had to represent a client in a full tribunal (think a small court to decide tax things). We arrived this morning to request a stand-over, a delay of a couple of months, to allow further...

You can dance with the Devil Google...

...but the Devil don't change. Not so long ago I was a little chuffed that I'd managed to get my employers website to rank #2 on Google for our chosen search terms. This week I decided to capitalise on that...

Money makes the world go....

Once again, we're 6 days before pay day and we've run out of money. 3 months ago it didn't used to be like this. We were actually clearing our overdraft off. But for the last couple of months we've been...

Wishlist

I've often thought about a wishlist but the kind of things I want, that I'm into don't tend to be together on one site. So, I'll do one here as a blog entry. This is not a begging entry. I...

You want my soul?

Apparently soul is worth 5006 and 94% of people have a purer soul than me. I wonder if I could sell it for a set of Technics CD Turntables. Get a quote for your soul (some of the questions are...

w.bloggar

Tonight I've reinstalled w.bloggar. I've not used this since I left my blogger.com blog behind. It has a superior user interface to the MT online editor and has a number of plugins available that add extra functionallity. It has a...

Desire, longing, need and the Technics CD Turntables.

I really, really (really, really, really) want one (well two actually) of these. Really, really really. Can you tell what it is? Take another look. And read a couple of articles. It's a professional Technics CD (and MP3) player with...

Colouring in.

I'm not very good at matching colours. I can tell when something clashes badly, but couldn't pick two matching colours to save my life. When creating the template for this site I used ColorMatch 5K to give me 5 matching...

If wishes were roses....

I don't have a wish list, but if I did Farting Baby would be on it....

Mad Cow

There has been a general feeling that BSE is a strictly British problem. That European, US and other beef hasn't suffered in the way that UK beef has. That non-UK beef is "safer". Well, thanks to stricter animal control than...

Scientific Progress

The progress of science marches endlessly on, debunking old myths and explaining ever more about the workings of our universe. In general this is a good thing. There is some stuff you wish they would leave alone though, some times...

Mr or Ms 10,000

The10,000th visit happened at 7.30am this morning my time (1.30am their time, they're on Central Standard Time). They arrived from a search on the French Language AltaVista for top nude scenes and visited this entry only. Kudos for the regular...

2.30am my time and it's on 9968. Will it trip 10,000 before I get up tomorrow?...

10k

The counter should top 10,000 at some point over the next 24 hours. If you happen to be number 10,000 let me know. However, as 80% of visitors don't view the front page there's not much chance of Mr (or...

Uninspiring

At times like this I often turn to the Internet for inspiration (yes I realise the inherent sadness in that statement), something to lift the mood or interest. Unfortunately, there's not much going on here either. The Benny Benassi -...

Routine

It feels like a week where not much has happened. But in-hindsight there's a couple of milestones achieved this week. James started school and Chloe started High School. Both seem to be doing well although James is a little less...

Kelly Brook Shame

Thanks to Off On A Tangent for pointing out this Yahoo article. What can I say? I'm sure Sharon and I will get through it....

French politicians are coke addicts!

According to a recent article, the Weekly World News, purveyor of the secret truth, has discovered why France and Germany refused to back the Iraq War effort. The politicians were all off their heads on drugs! Rumours that the reporter...

Walking Dead

Just can't get my head round work this morning. I think I overdid it slightly at the weekend. I need 2 to 3 days of solid sleep to get my head together. However, that's not very likely. In other news,...
