Interview with the singer songwriter
Georgia, and jazz, on her mind
Last week, a pretty, 19-year-old singer named Katie Melua slipped past Dido and reached No. 1 in the album charts with her debut CD, a gentle, melodic collection of late-night, light jazz and blues called Call Off the Search. Katie, who sings in a sweet, plaintive voice which many reviewers have compared to Ella Fitzgerald's, has had no big publicity campaign, nor even a prime-time introduction on a television talent show. Nor does she display any signs of being a pushy little starlet.

just got "The Closest Thing To Crazy" single..

Chinese New Year of The WoodGreen Monkey

check your year of birth
The Watchful Dog - The "Vanquishing Vigilante." blurrr? .......
Dogs have a tendency to complicate matters in Monkey years. Years ruled by the Monkey can bring the culmination of family disturbances, accusations, and losing face. The Dogs reputation may be on the line this year, do not act with haste, but carefully deliberate your options. Even though Dogs resent the carefree attitude and lack of perceived scruples during Monkey years, any vigilante-like rushing into chaos, could bring disastrous results. Take a deep breath and let it be... Ok that's me then..

Bloggies shortlist - we're in!
Blimey. Onlineblog has made it to the shortlist for the 2004 Bloggies, thanks to your votes. It was a big surprise - I only found out when idly browsing our referrer stats - so thanks for your vote. It's great to be in a field for best computer/tech weblog that includes four quite exceptional sites that we've got an awful lot of time for - Slashdot, Boing Boing, Gizmodo and Kottke.org. Up against that lot, I'm sure we don't have a chance, but it was a lovely surprise to be in there at all.


is it a management thing?
Most legal experts cite the complexity of the upcoming trials to explain why convictions may be hard to obtain. The ongoing Tyco trial, with its months of mind-numbing testimony and many thousands of financial documents, offers a case study in this challenge. But the moral reasoning that jurors bring to white-collar cases may be an even bigger obstacle.

Just sirfd over this message about a recent Honda Car advert
Windows Shutdown Blue Mosaic - 123rd post - 15 Jan 2004 16:39
Anyone seen the Honda TV advert where there are lots of images of pieces of technology some of them parts of Honda cars. Each image briefly shows that piece of technology working to perfection and there's a voice over that says something along the lines of 'Isn't it nice when things just work?'.
One of the images is a cursor clicking on MS Windows Shutdown - talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

You can watch this here in Quick Time or a WMP device is there..

Jeremy's doing some house hunting out in California here a short list of resent browsover:

MLS #371981
This one had the open house going on, so I poked around. I liked the location a lot. The area didn't feel crowded at all and there was a fair amount of extra street parking for visitors. There were a few things I didn't really like about the place. First, the living room was quite small. I'd have loved to take some of the dining room space and use it to enlarge the living room. Also, I'm not a fan of hardwood floors. I hadn't really thought about that before, but I'd end up just putting in carpet anyway.


MLS #372109
This one faces Middlefield road but is a fair distance from the road. From the outside it's hard to say much. But the parking and garage area felt cramped compared to the area on Lilac Lane. It's virtually the same price and square feet as the other one, so I'd like to have a look inside. I think that'll help quite a bit in setting my expectations and having a good basis for comparison.
Anyway, using searches in the $400,000 - $575,000 range, I learned that my dreams of a 3 bed, 2 bath condo or townhouse with at least 1,300 square feet and a 2 car attached garage is realistic

Yowza, it is sooo FLIPIN' COLD here again today, thanks to that darn "Montreal Express" from our lovely neighbors to the North, Canada. It's not expected to get above 5 degrees and with the wind chill factored in, it'll feel a lot colder than that. It's so cold that the hard core smokers at work who usually stand outside are now resorting to lighting up in their nice warm cars. And what's the temperature supposed to be tomorrow. Why minus 45 degrees with the wind chill...Brrrr!

Swearing : So I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone here, Jeneane. Probably the first words one learns in any foreign language are some swear words. So I'll teach you a few and so some foreign language at the same time :-)

Some cultures don't swear at all. Malay, Japanese, most American Indians and Polynesians have no native swear words AFAIK. Highly taboo words in other languages are :-

turtle - highly taboo to the Chinese,
devil - Norwegian,
oozlie loorach (literally 'slovenly trollop') - Scots,
hlebeshako (literally 'your mother's ears') - Xoxa (in South Africa),
tu madre - Spanish = 'your momma' (i.e. incest implied),
Himmelherrgottdonnerwetternochmal German heavenlordgodthunderweatheronceagain,
ravintolassa - Finnish (literally 'in the restaurant').
