Send in the electoral observers

Apparently there is an acknowledged syndrome called PEAD—pre-election anxiety disorder—the fear that one’s vote will not count. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was sweeping the nation. With all the shenanigans going...

George W Bush hurt my baby

So CU-1 was wearing her mommy wants a new president teeshirt today at the toddler playgym and a couple of people commented negatively. One said, “what has George W Bush done to your daughter” and Nicki practically...

Cos Cob vandalism

You know, my dad, Jed, has for most of his long life been a master with a pair of scissors.

Face paint

I figured if I let CU-1 paint my face as I painted hers, I would be able to make a reasonable likeness of a ginger cat’s face on hers.

This will have no meaning to most people, but if Bill Bissell reads this, on Saturday 23 October 2004, I finally made it to Sidcup.

Would you guys mind terribly debugging your frigging JS code before you slap it on your website? Please.

More things to do with your Placido

As the election looms, thoughts turn to another Republican congress. UK subjects act now while you still can:

More software company nonsense

A new feature has arrived on my desktop that prevents Nicki and I both using Suitcase at the same time. Until now, Suitcase ran happily in the background, managing font conflicts and opening fonts when required to...

A guy in Wales

I know I’ve been a bit of a wreck these past couple of days, but I really surprised myself this morning reading Phil Mountain’s letter to Clark County in The Guardian. By the start of the second sentence I was sob...

I’ve just discovered that if you point the desk lamp straight into your face and stare at the bulb occasionally, you can go for days without sleep.

You know, there’s nothing I hate more than spam. So I really can’t figure out why I keep noticing the stuff and posting about it…

Cuisson du sucre

Who would have believed that there were not one, not two or even three different nouns to describe the state of caramelization of sugar in the French vocabulary. According to marmiton.org’s cooking chart there are...

The thing that I want (a design methodology)

So yesterday morning, the thing that I wanted was a black, v-neck jumper and the chosen interface to get it was Mark & Spencer at Marble Arch.

Scrambling one’s nervous system

For a theoretically unemployed person, I seem to be very very busy right now. This is great because one of my iBook’s logic boards (I think it’s a logic board, due to the little beeps I’m pretty sure I heard yeste...

CU-1 walked up to me this lunchtime and asked

G5

Until this evening, I didn’t know that the side pannel of the G5 is a four-millimeter-thick slab of brushed aluminium. On the inside of the panel, a stainless steel guide is attached with cross-head stainless stee...

Hey Dug, what’s all this porfolio stuff… (bis)

But on a more personal, Donkey-esque note, one side-effect of trawling through your pure-play digital (actually saw this phrase today) life is coming across really old stuff that you’d forgotten ever doing.

Techno-bollocks,

Hey Dug, what’s all this porfolio stuff doing here?

Just a quick post to apologise for all the portfolio stuff going through this part of the site these past few weeks. I decided to use a part of Donkey as my online portfolio (a necessary evil in my quest for emplo...

Lamb’s lettuce

The corn salad (Valerianella P. Mill.) has been sitting in a seed tray for ages. I can’t seem to get the darn things to move beyond this stage so potted them up in a bigger pot this morning.

Planting from seed

Planted Greek oregano (Oreganum vulgare L.), mixed Italian lettuce leaves 1, rocket (Diplotaxis erucoides) and a lemon variety of sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum var citriodorum) in a seed tray in the kitchen two Sa...

I’ve just realised something which I had kind of been keeping my head in the sand about: Movable Type 3.11 is buggy as all hell. Once you start getting anywhere near the red-line, its behaviour silently switches f...

New design using float instead of position

Damn, this thing went from Mena’s intermediate template to the completely new float design in about 18 hours. I was at the perifferal templates until 2 am this morning trying to get the category-based tags to work...

Came across this icon I made of myself when digging around for portfolio stuff. For starters, what’s with the front pony tail;-) That said, it is kinda cute (the icon, not the goat)…
