People are linking to Pace. I hope they asked permission.

After a four year gap, a broken filling meant I really had to go to the dentist again.

On The Buses

Posted on 29 October 2003 in London, Transport (No comments yet - be the first!)

I seem to have rather a problem with travelling once the tube has shut so it’s time for yet more epic tales of late night travel ala Bods.

Post Strike

It’s been getting on for a week since the postman visited the front door of Bods Towers, thanks to a raft of unofficial strikes that have hit London.

It’s been over a year since I last ate Beef and Guinness Pie at the Red Lion, but I was not disappointed tonight.

Broon Ale

Want a nice brown ale in London? Marks and Spencer might well be the place to visit then.

Interesting Digital Television Launches

Posted on 21 October 2003 in Interactive TV, Radio, Television (No comments yet - be the first!)

The BBC has launched News Multiscreen, and EMAP seems to have some big plans, but what they’re not saying. Interactive services on Freeview are really getting interesting.

BBC Four told the story of the wonderful Radiophonic Workshop.

Cough cough, splutter splutter.

I work for five days a week. I get two off to relax and enjoy myself. So why is it I always fall ill at weekend?

Sick of Spam?

The one spam email subject I love recieving however is about… well spam.

Thou Shalt Not Link Without Permission

Posted on 15 October 2003 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

Some people seem to think hyperlinking can be stopped by asking people not to link to you… Some people need to get their heads out of the clouds…

Freeze It!

A Sagem DTT set top box has a rather nice freeze frame function, oh yes.

Mailing Lists….

…sometimes I wonder why I bother

The Measure of Success

Posted on 9 October 2003 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

Paul Hammond recently blogged about the accurate measure of the quality of a site. Apparently links to content and traffic have nothing in relation to each other. So how do you measure success?

More Theme Switcher Fun

The theme switcher now works properly. Honest. Believe me. Please?

Uxbridge and Back - 1938 style

Posted on 5 October 2003 in London, Transport (No comments yet - be the first!)

A trip to the London Transport Museum Depot today saw more than just wandering around a big warehouse full of signs, trains and buses, but also the chance to take an hour long trip on a 1930s tube train!

Theme Chooser (and Konqueror’s handling of alternate stylesheets)

Posted on 4 October 2003 in Internet, Planet Bods, Web Development (No comments yet - be the first!)

A new, and rather pointless theme chooser has been added to the site. Enjoy!

The Death of the Technical

Posted on 2 October 2003 in Computers, Internet, Web Development, Work (No comments yet - be the first!)

Today I struggled with some HTML. Does this set a worrying path to technical oblivion?

Can I moan about Freeserve any more?

Posted on 2 October 2003 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)
