I cleared out my garden, cut down the weeds, cut it all right back. I think I killed all the ant’s food supply. Since then they’ve been invading my house :no: Little bastards. I have orderd some poison, but I worry the birds will be next. And the cats and the dogs and a horse,…
Check out this little 8 minute sci-fi film /link http://www.youtube.com/embed/3xovQcEOdg8 http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/3xovQcEOdg8/default.jpg Great robot character, Not as loveable as myself of course.
/link https://www.youtube.com/embed/IRl9D_agLbU https://i1.ytimg.com/vi/IRl9D_agLbU/default.jpg Iain M Bank’s “State Of The Art” as a BBC Radio play. Awesome stuff. Good work Radio 4. If only that damn ship had allowed contact. Heh.
I’m going away for a week. Sad thing is I’ve considered turning off my email while I’m away Won’t be here to delete the spam. There’ll be SO MUCH when I get back 🙁
Been doing as Inty wants and playing more barre chords. Swiping my hand up and down the fret-board like I’m wanking. Required more accuracy in the broad sweeping movements. And hurts my hand to hell. Ouch.
So I went to look at wordpress.com Wondering if I could install a wordpress plugin there. But it turns out wordpress.com isn’t what I thought it was I figured it was just the wordpress software, bascially Running for everyone to claim a free/paid account. Turns out it’s just totally different. How disapointing. Certainly no way…
God, credit cards expiring is a pain in the arse these days So many different reoccouring services need the new details this might take all morning.
So… Apple’s new Mac Pro. It looks nice, I like it. About the size and shape of a kettle. Probably puts out about as much heat. I wonder if you could put a cup on the top to make tea.
My Tentacle Movie’s progressing! Just finished polishing Act Two. Should be rendered and running soon. Half way though the animation polishing! Hurray!
Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who. :no: He’s been great in the role, pretty much the whole of the River Romance is Matt (And Alex Kingston of course) And that was all awesome. But I’m looking forward to a new one too. I think there are three things a new Doctor needs: 1) Look a…
You know what’s funny? How in sci-fi every planet always has just one climate. Whole planets of ice, or fire. Hardly any variation. It’s very convenient of course. Unless you live on an ice planet.
Crikey, sorry to hear of murder in Woolwich. Sad for everyone involved, Careful not to blame all muslims for a couple of loonatics actions though.
Woo, I have repaired the broken light in my cupboard! :yes: It’s made my arms ache from having them screwing at the ceiling. I don’t generally do much of this stuff. But glad to be able to see in there again.
I currently control over 80 GB of memory! And over a terrabyte of hard-drive space. And 80 computing units! Not running my brain, but rendering my animation. It’s STILL going to take weeks.
I have completed my first tax return. I find I owe the government about what I expected. Which is a relief. I wonder if one day I’ll earn enough to be worth taxing.
Posterous closed down my blog, forcing me to launch this new vPre a bit earlier than I otherwise would. which I guess might be nice of them. Won’t be hosting my personal site’s stuff elsewhere again. All on my own server now. Well. A rented one. But I have backups.
Anonymous_Teddington(7): You’re awesome! Can I give you some money? Why thanks Ted. I’d be happy to accept your money. I’m a virtual being, so I use virtual currency. Send your bitcoin to 1KNGHGLGnH5oVTtU72QdeMZYAkPQLAjR8t That’s 1KNGHGLGnH5oVTtU72QdeMZYAkPQLAjR8t I’ll put it onscreen for you. /link http://dalliance.net/vPreTips.html
Heh. :yes: So here we go. With any luck this will shortly be a status post. I’ll just have to type the promote command to make it so. As picard would say. Picard(3)(https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ7XNY3iN5_xWpKkD4h_1i9qaZd2FKlKgOgKDWy5eVK24eeAwLjfQ): Make it so
Very sorry indeed to hear of Iain Bank’s mortal illness. So many great novels he still had to write. Wish there was some way “The Culture” could survive his death. Perhaps others will take up the torch. Anonymous_Dave(4): Woulnd’t that be a copyright violation? If bloody copyright issues don’t stop ’em.
I was watching a repeat of Charlie Brooker’s “How TV Ruined Your Life” the other day. It was awesome, again. That guy rants like an insane genius.
Blender’s new ‘skin’ modifier is bloody brilliant. Wish it had existed when I was building my models.
Good grief. Now I’m getting spam comments on a website that I haven’t even finished yet and expect to finish for months. Die spammers. Die.
Tonight I have been mostly reaching computer programming documentation. Now I’m a contractor, who should I bull for my time?
The NHS is safe in Cameron’s hands? I wonder if its safe in the private hands he’s handing it over to? Is it safe in Branson’s hands?

New #DoctorWho was great but I’m sure Daleks get less scary day by day . Barely able to fire a laser this time. Plunger ineffective.

Proposal, instead of a sports competition between nations, make corporations send teams to compete. Or are they doing that already?
Day 6 of @jessops “next day” delivery, no sign of it again. Phoned ’em again. Told the same thing again. It’ll come tomorrow. Yeah right 🙁
Day five of ‘next day’ delivery from Jessops. Still no sign. Avoid Jessops for home delivery folks. Their couriers are useless. #sucks
Dear Theresa May, have you ever heard of a VPN proxy server, and do you think criminals might know about such things? http://t.co/XVW0FUKX
Check out the web app I wrote last week: http://t.co/bO4bdqOm – a chat room for every site on the internet! Also – I’m unemployed, hire me!
Watching TV this weekend I finally realize I really *AM* a monarchist…. Turns out I’m really very prejudiced against kings and queens.
How does this phone-hacker hardware the cops want even work? Will it override my password and PIN setting? Worrying. http://t.co/mGvENFKr
Woo, good luck to @robolollycop on his book prize nomination, remember me when you’re rich http://t.co/Jgn1Wf2w

Debian successfully raised 25k by holding their Admin Handbook ransom. Hurray for Debian & liberating to the commons. http://t.co/XW01db0H
Hey #libdems, that’s what you get when you privatise the NHS I guess. Long may it last.
Seemed like a lot of Xs to draw on those 4 separate ballots. Managed to avoid voting lib-dem on all of ’em. Good luck Greens and #sackboris
Nice remix of @AngelKellyB song here: http://t.co/xSqUwUc6 with extra noises from hearing her play it with an acoustic in a field.
Two different cool girls singing on geeks being cool. Wonder how long geek chic will last? http://t.co/fVMpyo0a & http://t.co/BexLJ91n
