If the BBC Journalist Fall for it I will too

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

I have to congratulate Ryan Air’s marketing department. One very cheap looking advert designed to offend and attract attention and they get it all over the BBC news and web site for free. It’s not the first time one of these ads has gotten on to the BBC. Twelve people complained about the advert. I […]

Christmas Ambiance

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

Went out with a few friends for a pre Christmas drink in Liverpool tonight. We met in a city centre pub for convenience. We might have stayed there if they hadn’t hired the kind of DJ who finds it hard to mix from one track to the next and tries to cover it up by […]

Friday Sillyness

Friday, November 30th, 2007

This article on the BBC web site intrigued me earlier Boys of 12 ‘abusing asteroids’. Turns out I’d miss read it and it was Boys of 12 ‘abusing steroids’ serious but no where near as intriguing.

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

My Wordless Wednesday post yesterday led to an e-mail asking what to buy to give 3d computer graphics a go.
