IE hell

How to run as many versions of Internet Explorer as you need. Unfortunately, this can be non-zero..

Unforgettable

Saw the great Bill Bailey live last night: fantastic. His version of Kraftwerk performing The Hokey Cokey will live in my memory forever..

Foxy Foxy FireFox

FireFox 0.9 has been released and a nice man has offered to help anyone having trouble migrating from Internet Explorer.

Shouldn't be much call for it - the (few) bugs in 0.9 seem to relate to those of us who've been running nightly builds, although there seem to be some issues with themes.

Did you spot the new domain (getfirefox.com) by the way? Seemingly mozillafirefox.com and mozillabrowser.com are coming soon.

googlemail

There's been a bit of a viral meme gmail frenzy recently - I saw this Free Gmail Invite! get over a million hits since lunchtime (yes, a few thousand were from me) which may mean it's going to go public soon. Maybe this 'Invite' thing is to get those with web-power on their side at the launch - being a bit taken aback at some of the negative publicity they got on April 1st.

Well, I want one anyway. I want in early so I can get stu@gmail.com (though I know it will get a gazillion spams a day being dictionaryword@wellknownprovider.com) - don't wants to be stuartd32653565!

FIP

FIP is a French radio station we can get in Brighton. C'est tres eclectique! Ecoute ici (best open in a new window or disable browser resizing by scripts :-)

I like to listen to it when in the bath with Daisy (still haven't fixed my car aerial, so I'm shazamming all my old tapes and it's eating all my phone credit)

How to make a record that sounds good

Everything you ever wanted to know about vinyl, good for DJs (dance not wedding variety)

Gunlaug's Portal

Gunlaug's Dairy Farm and CSS Portal The winters are too long, I think. "I like style! It is something to be exploited." he says. He does, and he does..

Rudies can't fail

I was looking again at Zeldman's archive of rejected adverts - my all time favourite is this one but I have to give honourable mention to this one and the four which follow it - bear in mind that Zeldman put a disclaimer on these that they may cause offence.

Not to you lot, I expect!

Unreality TV

Where's (dead link warning) Kitten Hate when we really need it? Admittedly it was about something other than hating Kitten off Big Brother but it would have been a consolation. Ah well, at least she isn't from Brighton and at least she's gone.
