Site Stats

Yesterday, I received 80 page requests from grantit.gw.core.nemi-networks.co.uk. Eh?

Also, it looks like the sinister National Libray of Wales has returned. 17 page requests from gtjoffice.llgc.org.uk

AsssemblyOnline

by David on January 27, 2005

The AssemblyOnline website has had a thorough makeover. Looks like it’s going to be more debate about Welsh politics and the Assembly rather than simple making the Assembly’s own published content more accessible. Interesting.

iPod Divination

by David on January 24, 2005

A few methods of divination:

  • pyromancy (by fire)
  • ophiomancy (by snakes)
  • pegomancy (by spring water)
  • anemoscopy(by wind)
  • daphnomancy (by burning laurel wreaths)
  • hippomancy (by horses)
  • tiromancy (by cheese)

to which we may now add podomancy:- divination by iPod. Method: switch iPod to shuffle songs and try to determine what your iPod’s choices are telling you.

Andrew Sullivan on Bush

by David on January 20, 2005

Sullivan didn’t back a second term for Bush but he’s good enough to publish a finely nuanced assessment. It’s certainly better than most in the UK manage, where fatso Moore’s documentary is hailed as a triumph of movie-making (I saw it in California and fell asleep in the cinema for only the second time in my life).

Worth a quick read.

Live and let live and remember this line:
Your business is your business and my business is mine
