Gadgets? I love my i-Pod. I started a strict mission to get all my CDs on it, but I only managed half before getting too bored. Despite this, playing songs in alphabetical order provides the most bizarre mix of tunes and is guaranteed to lift your spirits. I tend to buy gadgets and put them in a drawer. I'm getting a global positioning thingy this week.

.. so what happens when you get to 'M'mmm..
I got a few things still on cassette includes some funnies from newzy items, which ought to go onto a new medium when I get round to it..

Tales from The Haircutting Room floor

Gerald my hairdresser is going to see Joe Brown tonight but he said that he wants to get some stuff on
Emile Ford -should I email Anna Ford about some quirky reference... -
and then I told him that we (the guys at work) have got tickets to see Moody Blues at
The Royal Albert Hall which is where I saw Led Zepplin and bumped into our surrogate new flat mate John Thody from Taunton..

I was just logging off when I noticed in the 'weblogs' this link to Sick Candy via Biz Stone's weblog search in google images makes me think this image does pangs on ergographical sences as it [doh] myself OK I can now deduce what looks good and what looks not?!?!

Fancy having a chat with Google? Then hie thee to Catty and prattle away.

* you> what kind of day are you having today?
* catty2 frankly i am having increasing trouble identifying who is a member of the press ;)

'To be short, Catty is trolling around, picking randomly chosen phrases, and then searching for them on www.google.com..At the beginning, she's mumbling with absolutely no sense. Then, as people are throwing offensive phrases at her, she learns how to answer them by browsing xxx sites...'

The award winning BBC Horizon Special Life Story is to be rescreened tonight at 23:00 hours BST the listings
..the imdb match..
Not the world's best piece of film making, perhaps, but this is one of the most historically accurate movies ever made about science. As a biology teacher, I found it a great way to cover a rather difficult part of the syllabus. I'm sorry all those other biology students found it so boring; I can only hope that if their teachers had explained what was going on a bit better they would have found more to enjoy. This is a particularly good portrayal of the often bizarre and non-linear way in which science works, in contrast to the typical unrealistic expositions about the scientific method. The discovery of the structure of DNA was one of the most ground-breaking advances in 20th Century science, and one which is still having and will continue to have an enormous impact on our lives, so the value of the film as a depiction of history is very significant.
The only things that annoyed me were Jeff Goldblum's usual failure to speak clearly (made even worse in some scenes by talking with his mouth full of food) and all the rather puerile digressions (accurate though they may have been) about James Watson's tastes in girls

An Offical Govenment Police web site was allegedly hacked not here but probably here as reported by the mirror blog London...

Computer hackers have broken into an official police website and posted spoof news reports.
Stories included Ronald McDonald Arrested and Police Force to be Axed.
Another fake report poked fun at anti-terrorism raids, claiming officers arrested eight farmers after finding fertiliser on their land.
The message on the Thames Valley Police site read: "The farmers are being held at Belmarsh under the Prevention of Farming Act (2001).
The force is investigating how security was breached, but said there was no sensitive information on the website.
The reports were removed after being found on Friday

I remember that in the 80s people got excited about laptops, justifiably, and some people suggested that there would be a new market for laptop applications, but that market never materialized. The logic went like this -- when personal computers came along, they created a new market and lots of new companies. Microsoft, Lotus, Ashton-Tate, Visicorp, Software Publishing, Micropro, etc. So the thought was that the form-factor was the thing that created the new market, but now I think it's clear that it was low price and ease of use compared to the previous generation. Millions of Apple II's sold for $2K, where thousands of PDP-11s had sold for tens of thousands. It wasn't long before the PCs were more capable than their more geekish, more expensive predecessors.

Parachutist injured in crash landing

"Wondering if this is anyone we might know?"

A parachutist from Kent was critically injured after crash landing from a jump at an airfield.
The man was injured during the jump at about 9.30am on Sunday at Headcorn Aerodrome, near Maidstone.
The injured man, who is said to be in his 20s, was flown to Maidstone Hospital by the Kent Air Ambulance.
The British Parachute Association, which is carrying out an investigation, said he was an experienced parachutist who had made more than 150 jumps.

My Dad asked to have Norman Cocker tune for tuber played at his funeral cause it's one of those tunes you actually know but it has a particular character in it's translation
BBC Radio 3 Classical message board questions and answers...

re: Cocker's tune for tuber..? BBC RADIO 3 - HOST - 210th post - 11 Apr 2004 19:51
Welcome to the board, Peter.
The piece in question is Tuba Tune by Norman Cocker. It's deceptively tricky to play and if your Dad wants a funeral in church, you'll need to check out whether or not the organ has a tuba stop (it tends to be larger English organs which have it) or at least a big reed like a trumpet to do it justice. Worth checking also that the organist can play it!
If it's a funeral where it's possible to play a recording, probably the greatest recording of Tuba Tune was made by Francis Jackson at York Minster. The tuba stop is glorious and the old EMI recording captured it superbly. This recording is available again on the Amphion label.

Do Russians have April fool day?

Hey anybody seen this yet from Pravda's front page via here the BBC Science Weird message boards, where the question is Do Russians have April fool day?

Soviet Army fought UFOs
01/23/2004 14:47
Soviet military encountered many UFOs, maybe for this reason in the end of the 60s a secret laboratory of researching "flying objects" was created in the USSR.
UFO researchers often blame the military of hiding the cases of alien rockets and disseminating false information of UFO. Army officers are not interested in the disputes about alien civilizations, they are interested in knowing what impact UFO can impose to military equipment and personnel.
1947. Antiaircraft guns of Transcaucasian Military District fired on the flying cigar-shaped object which came from the side of the Turkish border. The object"s flying altitude was below 4,000 meters, and the guns were capable of reaching a target at the altitudes up to 12,000 meters, but that time the fire made no harm to the "cigar". Then the cigar increased its speed and flew away over the mountains.
