e-Scrabble

Sharon & I have been playing e-Scrabble. Started during a lunch break and continued whilst I was in Switzerland (what? didn't I mention I spent 2 days in Switzerland? don't worry about it. you're not missing anything) the game has...

More Spamming B*st*rds

Some time ago I tried to set up Refer from Textism on this site to monitor referrers (I'm either too vain or too needy just like most of the blogging population, you decide). It didn't work, I couldn't get the...

Pointless Comment Spam

Over the last week I've received about 6 or 7 spam comments from the same person. Now 6 or 7 comments isn't enough of a hassle to moan about, I regularly get up to 100 per attack and that's just...

70,000!

Wow! Will you check that out. This site just zipped past 70,000 unique visits (since April 2003) today and I didn't even notice. Having said that, it's currently averaging just over 300 hits per day. About half of these are...

Halt! Who goes there!

There's a bit of me that will never grow up. The part that still giggles at fart noises and sniggers at childish innuendos. The part that still sticks my tongue out at people and tells 5 year olds jokes. That...

F**k Off!

Today's running theme is entirely co-incidental....

NTL Gets Honest

According to Ananova, NTL (a UK cable, phone and broadband internet supplier) was a little more honest than usual on its customer services line. The message said: "Hello. You are through to NTL customer services. We don't give a f***...

Yet another hospital trip

When I started this blog it was a mixture of personal items (a diary if you like), interesting links, moans about and request for help with web projects and semi-intelligent rants. These days it's lost the personal items and most...

No Rapture then!

Well, I didn't ascend to Heaven in any Rapture. I did however indulge in a little bit of return-preaching. Terry Pratchett created the Discworld; Harry Potter is but a lie. JK Rowling had a seed of a story, but it...

I need help in my search for the truth

Apparently I'm on a search for the truth. Jesus founded the Catholic Church; all other churches are but a lie. Protestants have the seed of truth, but it was planted by men and fell on the rocks where it has...

UK Parliament to decide on hunting ban

The UK Parliament is to vote today on a law that would ban hunting with hounds; in my opinion a rather barbaric sport carried out in many parts of the country. Many people oppose the hunting ban and, as you...

My atom feed

I'm confused by the results I'm getting if I try to validate my Atom feed with feedvalidator.org. In a comment left today David McMurray pointed out that my Atom feed, using the MT Template I published for use by anyone...

Child of the Eighties

You don't mention the 80s for years, and then 2 posts come along at once. Seen over at Huy's: I know the score looks a little pathetic for someone who lived through the 80s but the quiz is heavily US...

Real Life

Sam sent me an email recently requesting a Gmail invite (I now have just 4 left). He also said he'd seen my list of comics (bottom left) and that I might wanna take a look at Real Life. Thanks a...

This is especially for anyone who's still thinking, "Hell no. Britney Spears is no skanky ho!"...

Transformers - Stuck in the 80s

If you're old enough to have wanted one of the original transformers, chances are you're also old enough to have given anything to be able to breakdance at some point in your life. So Breakdancing Transformers is a natural progression,...

Should I copy this CD?

The London News Review offers a decision tree guide to the morality of copy (and by association, downloading) music. I'm guessing it's done slightly tongue in cheek....

The Sun Stole Kelly Book's N*pple

Last week, The Sun printed this photo of Kelly Brook on Page 3. google_ad_client = "pub-0876493068843468"; google_alternate_color = "996633"; google_ad_width = 234; google_ad_height = 60; google_ad_format = "234x60_as"; google_ad_type = "text_image"; google_ad_channel ="3470870816"; google_color_border = "996633"; google_color_bg = "996633"; google_color_link...

American Motorbikes

I was always told that there were two things the Americans could just never get the hang of; building cars that went round corners quickly and building motorbikes that went round corners quickly. "They don't have enough corners" my Dad...

Another Blogging Bloke

It's quite slow going getting this Blogging Blokes thing off the ground. So far I've only been inviting people whose websites I visit regularly or semi-regularly by leaving comments on their sites. I don't want to leave comments on purely...

Gmail Invites

I have 6 Gmail invites to give away. First come, first serve and preference will be given to regular readers if preference is needed. Gmail invites are now quite common though so I can't see there being a huge rush....

Premature Trouser Sneeze

Witt and Wisdom'sWoo Your Woman guide is excellent, if only for the phrase "enboobened gender" which is now my new favourite way to refer to the female sex....

Blogging Blokes

After the flurry of activity setting the thing up, I have done very little with the blogging blokes webring since. The Blogging Blokes site is up and running although still to be finished off. I need to add a page...

Our adopted children...

We went to Colchester Zoo today to see my adopted aardvarks. 3 hours each way with 3 kids in the car, it was actually a lot less painful than I was expecting. The zoo itself was excellent. We were there...
