Bob was livid when he found out about L8 tickets changing hands for loads of cash online. I saw him on TV a couple of days ago really laying into eBay. I’m not sure if this was Bob’s idea, but someone suggested bi...

Embedded in the back of the bag are three lightweight, tough, waterproof solar panels which generate up to 4 watts of power. This means quicker charge times!Techno-bollocks,
I’m always curious to hear any information that suppports the argument that not making your site accessible is a nonsense. The DDA Centre has nothing to do with website design, but they did have this little snippe...

I’ve been spending quite a lot of time looking at the British Museum website these past couple of months. I’ve nicked this graphic from Compass, their editor-selected presentation of 5000 significant pieces from t...
I’m on a couple of usability lists and one of them sparked a slightly strange exchange of messages a few minutes ago:Techno-bollocks,
Well, I’ve been on the verge of buying Tiger and going through the upgrade thing with the five-odd machines I’m responsible for. It looks like I’ll loose key functionality if I do (virtual switch networking) and I...Techno-bollocks,
Sunday afternoon and my eyes are still going mental. This is beginning to worry me slightly, after all I rely quite heavily on my eyes to do my job. If things haven’t improved by tomorrow morning, I think I’ll go ...

So I’m sitting here at my desk, it’s 5am and I’m trying to get some writing done, but my eyes are killing me.Family,
ER -- The Video Game
Just been contacted by Francis Poku at specialopsmedia.com re featuring the new ER game on Donkey.
Sitting here in MUF where I work on personal projects thinking about the structure of a huge, museum website and have just noticed that Technorati’s tags page is almost 50% non-roman.
I’m not sure whether I prefer the Flickr ‘most recent’ or ‘random’ badges, but one of the nice features of the random badge (which grabs pics at ‘random’ from your photosets) is that is reminds you of days past.

Asquith Court West Hampstead
I was beginning to think the good works of the Asquith Eight were going to go unnoticed forever.
What is it with account execs? They can’t help themselves from poking the screen. One in particular had the endearing habit of using a biro which left little blue smudges…
OK everybody, today’s the day. Time to head for a polling station.
Have just spent three hours inputting all manner of stuff into the Aquent website.
Tom Coates on trackback
Tom writes Trackback is dead. Are Comments dead too? I’m not sure I agree with his findings. To be honest, I have a problem understanding exactly how trackback works, so time to delve deeper. What is undeniable is...Techno-bollocks,
Asquith Court Parents Association
There has been a real grassroots effort by the parents of kids at Asquith Court West Hampstead. It got so bad we moved CU-1 to a new nursery (which she calls her “new nursery” which is kinda cute…).Family,

OK, it’s abit geeky, but this story has just had me in stiches:-)
More ‘customer support’ nonsense
I got this note at work this morning. This is crazy as it’s now the second time I’ve got the note and for some reason, this company cannot operate outside its scripted customer support parameters. This a very impo...Techno-bollocks,

Workflow for Movable Type
If you can get past the mind-bending idea of plugins having their own plugins, it really shows how plugin developers have taken a place next to strategy consultants, content mavens, and implementation experts in b...Techno-bollocks,

Amsterdam for weejuns
So that was fun, if utterly exhausting (started my day 06:00 on Friday and got into my hotel bed at 01:30 only to be kicked awake by little girl at 06:30–and it went downhill from there on the sleep front).Family,
Wey hey! Nicki has scored our little familly an all-expenses-paid press junket to the Dutch capital. Nick and CU-1 left earlier today and are currently enjoying that particular kind of Dutch hospitality (brusque?)...Family,

Wi-fi on the go
Just wanted to register my surprise at the poor quality of BTOpenzone’s wi-fi offering. Apart from the just plain cryptic interface of the wi-fi start page (the page your brower is redirected to when you attempt t...Techno-bollocks,

Well, Google is courting entertainment marketers apparently. The piece explains how new Google film listings are making studio bosses nervous. There’s some classic old-world thinking
