Goodbye Technorati Hello Google Reader

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I’ve been using Technorati for 18 months to keep track of my favourite blogs but of late the service has been unreliable. Fortunately Google Reader has now come out of the Google Labs and so tonight I switched all the feeds I follow over to it.

I sure pick the day to mess with American History

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I’ve been using the wibbly wobbly web and associated Internet thingy for well over a decade now. In that time I’ve made friends all over the world including America. Funny thing is that today is the first time I can remember being wished happy thanksgiving. Its not just happened once though but several times. Anyway […]

Less Memes More

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

I’ve decided to cut back on the number of Thursday Thirteen and Wordless Wednesday posts. Partly because I’m spending too much time on them each week, partly because I want to look around for some different memes to try and partly because I’m finding it harder to come up with good ideas for them each […]

Vue Lighting Rig #8: Spotlights at 45 degrees from the Front and Back

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Last weeks theatrical lighting rig for Vue placed two spot lights at 45 degrees on either side of the actor but this can create unsightly shadows especially down the middle of their face. This week the same rig is turned so that one light now points from the front and one from the back. We’ve […]

Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle Racing Along

Monday, November 19th, 2007

I’ve been belting along with “Mrs H.’s Knitting Circle” today, adding a couple of thousand words to the story. Its got murders, shoot outs, detective work, intrigue, a heist, a confession, a nice cup of tea but no actual knitting. Depending on the final word count I may go back and switch a few sections […]

The Omid Djalili Show

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

The BBC showed the first The Omid Djalili Show tonight. The stand up was excellent. The sketches were maybe a little long although they could play around the subject rather than going for a single quick punchline. Omid seemed a bit awkward in the sketches but that may be not such a bad thing. Heston […]
