Let the paperwork commence!

Posted on 26 February 2004 in House (No comments yet - be the first!)

I am looking forward to this weekend. For the first time in several weeks, I can rest and relax without feeling like I should be trapsing around estate agents, and wandering around street after street. On the other hand, I’ve now got a swamp full of paperwork and phonecalls to deal with.

About the ‘Mild In London’ section.

When you’re around Old Street, there is only one pub to visit. And it’s this one.

Wahoo!!!

The thing about being highly pesamistic is, when something actually goes your way, IT FEELS BLOOMIN’ BRILLIANT!

The end of Mark and Lard as we know it

Posted on 23 February 2004 in Radio (No comments yet - be the first!)

The news that Mark and Lard are to leave Radio 1 is sad, but not entirely unexpected. They’ve been the subjects of the internet rumour mill for several months no doubt surred on by their own on-air comments. It’s been as obvious as the fact that a carry on follows a stop.

House Pessimism

At least if you’re pessimistic, you won’t be disappointed if you don’t get what you seek.

House Found?

It’s been a slog but, well…. we think we’ve found the right place to buy.

Mark and Lard Wonderings

Posted on 20 February 2004 in Radio (No comments yet - be the first!)

Well I did have a whole piece written about Mark and Lard splitting - I did it in my lunch hour today - but it seems to have gone walkies and not made it home.

Boo Hoo (Is Anyone Crying?)

Posted on 18 February 2004 in Entertainment (No comments yet - be the first!)

The demise of fashion retailer Boo.com was one of the great dot-com crashes if all time. It went down in such a blaze that the entire world must have known what happened. It symbolised not only the successes of the dot.com industry, but also everything that was wrong with it in the late 1990s. As such, I was interested to find out more, and a chance purchase of the book, Boo Hoo, written by Boo.com’s former CEO Ernst Malmsten looked like it might be an interesting read.

Estate Agent Games

The games estate agents play on the phone.

Housing Market Quiet

Posted on 17 February 2004 in House (No comments yet - be the first!)

Looking for somewhere to buy is hard work in London. You need a lot of cash for starters. And then you need to find somewhere you like. But at the minute, you’re lucky if you can find anything at all.

Letters to the Editor: February 2004

Posted on 15 February 2004 in Planet Bods (No comments yet - be the first!)

It’s 2004, and what better way to continue with this proud year than by responding to some of your Letters To The Editor from the last couple of months. Or year in some cases…

Beers of the Week

A quick roundup of three of the recent beers I’ve partaken of.

Timing of the Tables

A scouring of the Apache server logs reveals why people keep looking for train timetables…

Death of the Homepage?

Posted on 11 February 2004 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

A lot of people seem to have been wittering on about the death of the personal homepage. Having just compared stats for Planet Bods and this site, I’m glad to say that Planet Bods still beats this place on the hits stakes - it’s not dead yet!

Idiot Web Users

Posted on 6 February 2004 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

For some time I’ve been cursing web users. Specifically those web users who want to contact Tyne Tees Television. For instead of going to the Tyne Tees website, they come to the totally unofficial Tyne Tees Logo Page as run by me.

Words of Wisdom from Catherine

Inspirational stuff from my other half.

Anatomy of Search Results 3

Posted on 2 February 2004 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

It’s been 6 weeks or so since the last Anatomy of Search Results but they keep pouring in and confusing me. Except for the one from the very beginning of January which was just shag. That just scared me.

Advert from the staff of the BBC

Posted on 1 February 2004 in BBC, Work (No comments yet - be the first!)

It was perhaps the biggest example of the BBC staff ‘making it happen’. A full page advert in the Daily Telegraph yesterday paying tribute to the work done by Greg Dyke, and asserting their belief that the BBC should continue to be independent, and continue to be an independent organisation that best serves the public who pay for it.
