Yes!!! My Sigma 400mm lens arrived today! Wahoo!
I’ll post some pictures soon!
Happy New Year’s Eve! I’ve just found that the new Chemical Brothers album, Push the Button, due out late January (I think) has been released on BitTorrent.
For legal reasons, I’m not downloading it. But I am egerly awaiting the release of this album, especially since I’ve heard “Electronic Battle Weapon 7” and “Galvanize” from it.
It’s a shame to see such an anticipated album being released on the internet before the actual CD is released. This has happened on nearly every other album I’ve bought this year, Palookaville – Fatboy Slim, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned – The Prodigy etc.
Saying that though, some major BitTorrent sites have also been threatened with legal action (and some taken out). The biggest, SuprNova.org, was taken down vollentarily by its owner to avert legal action. The biggest now is probably TorrentSpy, which is where I found this Chemical Brothers torrent.
It seems what began as a blog wishing you a Happy New Year’s Eve, has turned into a discussion about BitTorrent sites.
I’ll post some links later.
I noticed a old school colleague, Tom Godbold, on The Weakest Link today, so I’d though I’d record it and post it for all to see :). He got voted out in the second round too, hehe.
Sorry, I was too lazy to get more than one screen grab.

The estimated death toll has now risen to nearly
70,000 120,000. I thought it would be appropriate to share a few ways you can help and get more information.
The links are from Google’s page on Tsunami Relief.
I’m going to miss Top Gear now the current series has ended, definatly one of the best programmes on TV at the moment. This moment, was a classic. Check out the screengrab (sorry for the poor quality, this is the quality of our digital TV service).
I can’t seem to decided between the Audi A3 and the BMW 1 Series however, both are brillaint cars, both look great, and I’d love to have both (of course, both are way out of my price range for a car, currently at Â£0). Any thoughts?
I just got back from the “January” sales. What a long day it’s been! Was going to hit Bluewater, but heard from people complaining about the hour it took to get into it, then you had to find a car parking space… Changed plans to Maidstone, which turned out to be quite poor actually. Nothing really left, and nothing really to begin with, I got three new pairs of Jeans though (lacking somewhat), and thats about it.
Has to be the most disappointing “January” sales I’ve been to, although would’ve probably been better at Bluewater.
I heard on the radio that the death toll is now over 20,000 people, in the 9.0 scale earthquake. You can find more information on the BBC News site.
Some minor updates to the layout of the menu, and some more content on it’s way very soon. Also I have nearly made the site 100% correct with IE, and not just Firefox.
Also, seeing as I’m trying to keep this site on the leading edge of web design (and lazyness), and probably constantly changing/tweaking it, I’m not going to bother testing it in anything other than the most current browsers from Microsoft and Mozilla camp. However, if a large proportion of my visiters start using IE 5.5 or Opera, I might consider tweaking the design to be cross-compatible.
I’ve finished the CSS for the extra content, but the content isn’t, and I’m really busy for the next few days upto 2005, so the new content probably won’t be up until we’re in 2005.
Saw this floating around the various bloggers on the internet. Thought I’d give it a bash. Please notify me of any dead/broken links, there are a few :-). Thanks!
I think I can safely say it is a massive improvement over the standard WordPress design, and should last me until I finish my custom WordPress template and style :-).
I only had to modify one thing in it, which was the style for blockquotes, which looked a bit rough around the edges.
I could make this list very long. Instead, I will make it only fairly long.
Nah, I haven’t got a wishlist for Christmas this year, mainly because there isn’t really anything I want desprately. I am looking for a watch though, if someone could recommend a decent wrist watch for around Â£100 that would be nice.
Have you got one? Have you tried to get one this near to Christmas?! It has been almost impossible for me to find one this Christmas, and my sister despratly wants one. Of course, you could get them off eBay, but at a hugely inflated price. Read More »
Hello and welcome to my new blogger! Hope you like it here, I sure like it more than my old blogger system (based on my own system, which I never really finished). Anyway, you can read about it at www.tastydirt.co.uk.
Anyway, a new start with a complete blogging system! Yay! And a very merry Christmas to everyone! I might make my old blogs avaliable, probably when I upgrade the blogger to Community Server.
