Well you can’t beat a sequel sometimes, so to follow up ‘Bods Tries To Use mycokemusic.com’, here is Bods ‘uses’ mycokemusic.com! And what an ‘experience’ it was…

Homeward Bound!

Some of the walls need a bit of a paint, the bathroom really needs a new bath, and the fridge freezer arrived with a big dent in it.

The King’s Head, Colliers Wood

But then maybe it’s the fact that the place looks like it hasn’t been refurbished since the 1970s doesn’t help. It’s the only Young’s pub I’ve seen that still has the company logo that was abandoned some point in the 1980s.

Leaving Ealing

Posted on 25 May 2004 in House, Life (No comments yet - be the first!)

Just a few days before we get hold of the keys… We’re not moving in straight away - but waiting until the following weekend but it’s getting… well exciting that finally we’ll have it, but sad as well.

Robert Kilroy-Silk. Idiot?

Posted on 20 May 2004 in Politics and Government (No comments yet - be the first!)

Here’s a gem from Robert Kilroy-Silk on Question Time this evening. Apparently according to him, the existence of the European Union has not kept peace in Europe. Nope. Oh no. No. It’s America that have kept the peace…

Sasser Where Art Thou?

Okay, I’m confused now. Certainly it looked like I had the Sasser virus on Muffin the Wonder Laptop…

Sasser and Comet

How depressing. I connect the Windows XP laptop to the internet for the first time in 6 months and bamm. Sasser virus.

Red Lion Wins Again

Posted on 17 May 2004 in Pubs (No comments yet - be the first!)

I’m really late with this one but last weekend, landlord of the Red Lion, Jonathan, told me they’ve won CAMRA West Middlesex Branch Pub of the Year again! Just like they did in 2003 and 2002.

Beer On Broadway XV

Posted on 17 May 2004 in Beer (No comments yet - be the first!)

In case anyone is wondering why there has been no follow up to last years wonderfully successful Eurovision 2003 post, then I should state that Saturday night was spent at Beer on Broadway - also known as the Ealing Beer Festival.

Corrections and Clarifications

Posted on 17 May 2004 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

Given the PR disastor that surrounded the launch of Movable Type 3, it’s perhaps not surprising that there have been some ‘clarifications’ (or backtracking, depending on whose opinion you read) about the new licensing.

Built Using Movable Type v2.661

Following on from my Movable Type essay/rant [delete as appropiate], I’ve made an ever so slight change to the template of this site.

I Want My MT3…

Posted on 13 May 2004 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

Well the announcement of version 3 of popular blogging software Movable Type has been greeted with a flurry of posts in the blogs across the land. Unfortunatly they’re rarely about the flurry of new features, but instead concentrating on one thing and one thing alone. The price.

Before you hit the send button, think first

Do you ever wonder if people actually use email to communicate in a way that they never would with any other form of communication? To say things that they probably shouldn’t? And that they wouldn’t by phone, or by text, by letter or in person?

Beds, beds and… err… beds.

One of the things about buying a house for the first time is that suddenly you have to go out and buy loads of things, which is why this evening, we ended up buying a bed.

bbc.co.uk rebrand

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

So today the BBCi website became bbc.co.uk. An amazing transformation which I’m sure a few people haven’t even noticed.

Are you?

Had an email via my website email form today. Rather odd one cos someone had obviously been searching through websites and spamming them through website contact forms.

There’s nothing like a trip round Ikea to make you think about the state of your flat.
