Here you'll find topical (or not depending on how often I can be bothered to update it) items of interest to me or the local community as well as more transitory or ephemeral items and links that I'm currently exploring. To search the whole site for specific keyword(s) go here.
  • And for those of you who thought bigotry and racism was (thankfully!) dying out, here's a site that proves there are still such blots on humanity peddling their wares and (even more scarily) breeding.
  • An incredibly useful site for Javascript - lots of very cool scripts available for you to pillage and re-use on your own site.
  • An excellent email "anti-disclaimer" from the lovely Wendy Grossman that shows up all the corporate ones for the useless exercise that they are: IMPORTANT - ANTI-DISCLAIMER - This email is not and cannot, by its nature, be confidential. En route from me to you, it will pass across the public Internet, easily readable by any number of system administrators along the way. If you have received this message by mistake, it would be ridiculous for me to tell you not to read it or copy to anyone else, because, let's face it, if it's a message revealing confidential information or that could embarrass me intensely, that's precisely what you'll do. Who wouldn't? Likewise, it is superfluous for me to claim copyright in the contents, because I own that anyway, even if you print out a hard copy or disseminate this message all over the known universe. I don't know why so many corporate mail servers feel impelled to attach a disclaimer to the bottom of every email message saying otherwise. If you don't know either, why not email your corporate lawyers and system administrators and ask them why they insist on contributing so much to the waste of bandwidth.
  • Censorship by Diners Club/Citicorp of public domain encryption research?
  • Take a laptop to the pub as well as cash (or your debit card)? This could make life "interesting" in the old Chinese curse sense of the word.
  • Disagree with the thought of going to war on Iraq? So do many Americans as can be seen from this article.
  • The always useful ADSL Guide website is a good source of news and updates for those of you still awaiting an upgrade for their local exchange.
  • And for those of you with the old BT Extreme routers, this link shows you how to er, "realign" them. As always, don't necessarily try this at home kids.
  • Ah, found an excellent tutorial for HTML stuff. Very useful.
  • And for some excellent rock 'roll in the style of Muse try Phazed and support them locally. Unforch, they've since split and as Ben has moved to UMIST, they're unlikely to reform but he's still playing, so wtach this space...
