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)
- 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
for you to pillage and re-use on your own site.
- An excellent email "anti-disclaimer" from the lovely
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)?
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
- 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
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
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
