Waiting for my spuds to roast before CSI Miami…

You know it’s funny, I was contemplating taking part in the NaBloPoMo again this year, and yet here I am barely able to update once a week, let alone once a frickin’ day! It’s not necessarily for any set reason; work has slowed down a little — at least enough for my keyboard to stop… read more →

Respect When It’s Convenient

As some of you may or may not know, the recently opened Neonglow forums have a celebrity-based header. I criticised this not long after it was opened and the general response from the admin (Becky/Sarai/Brent) can be summarised as “we don’t care”.

Firefox 1.5 and Custom Cursors

So, I’ve come to realise over the past few days (and would have realised sooner had I read the change log) that Firefox 1.5 allows custom cursors (i.e. graphical cursors).

Reboot Continued

With all the things that went wrong with the reboot design, it’s a laugh a minute over here I tell you.
