FlickrBlog - Trucks

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005

Award for the ‘Lamest FlickrBlog Post Ever’ goes to Trucks. How exceptionally non-exciting. It wouldn’t be so bad if the photos were of interesting trucks, but they’re not, they’re normal everyday freight transporters parked up in laybys. Not sure why Heather of Flickr bothered linking to these, maybe it was a slow day at […]

Being the superdude that he is, Rey gave me one of his invites to Odeo today. Apparently they’re quite hard to come by, although they’re not as sought after as Gmail invites were last year. When you can get an Odeo invite on eBay, you’ll know it’s taken off big time.

So what’s Odeo all about? […]

Alpha is the New Beta

Thursday, June 23rd, 2005

A few years ago if a piece of software or a web service carried a beta mark, most people except developers would keep well away from it. It was like a little warning sign to say something’s not quite ready, but you can take a look if you’re willing to take the risk. The risk […]

Say What?

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

I’ll be switching on comments on some posts from now on. Feel free to comment, or not. I know I will be!

As a starting point I would like to hear - in your own unique words - how lame you think the lame Lotto ad is (because I know you all agree with me), so […]

The Adventure Begins…

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

When I heard that a brand new Half-Life 2 full conversion called Eclipse had just been released for free download, I went along to the website and downloaded it almost straight away. Why? Because damn it looks sweet! Check out the amazing screenshots!

Now I’m not much of a gamer but Half-Life 2 is one […]

T-Shirt Site of the Week

Sunday, June 19th, 2005

When it comes to clothes I’m really really picky. I mean, I’m really bad. Some people can go into a shop and just pick out t-shirts and trousers and shit and say “yeah, that’ll suit me”. I can go into thirty shops and not find one thing, seriously. So whenever I do see a t-shirt […]

Lame Lotto Ad

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

The UK National Lottery, called Lotto, usually has a top prize of a couple of million pounds. Tis much, yo. With a top prize of more than most people’s entire lifetime’s earnings, you think they’d be able to come up with a more alluring advert than this one, which suggests the top prize could be […]

Windows Movie Maker

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

I’ve been playing around with Windows Movie Maker today. It’s pretty crap, but quite easy to use just for knocking some videos together and sticking a soundtrack on there. It does quite good fading between clips too, but that’s about it. Also, it’s really badly unstable. I’ve found myself saving my project about once a […]

The Summer Burn 2005

Tuesday, June 14th, 2005

This is cool shit. Everyone should sign up for The Summer Burn 2005.

What happens is you submit your name, email and postal address, and after the signup closes you get emailed the address of two other people who signed up. You burn a couple of CDs of your favourite tunes and wham it in the […]

Blake Ross on Today’s Software

Tuesday, June 14th, 2005

Blake Ross is one of the forefront developers of Firefox, so he should know a thing or two about software. He’s just written a bit of a rant about the state of software today after some guy asked him what he thought “the next big thing” would be.

It should be clear from my writing how […]

I want this car!

Update: Bah! Someone bought it!

Bon’s Favourite Films of All Time

Wednesday, June 8th, 2005

If someone were to ask me what my favourite film was, I don’t think I could give a definitive answer. If I was absolutely forced to give an answer, however, I would be inclined to say The Shawshank Redemption as it’s a bit of an epic compared to the other films in my top list. […]

Apple have this thing of naming lots of their products with the letter i at the beginning, the iPod, iBook, and iMac being the most popular of course. A relatively new product of theirs is the iSight (Yam’s got one) which is like a little webcam thing which clips on top of your iBook. Anyway […]
