Imagine there are two land masses next to each other. One much larger than the other. We’ll call them Big and Small. Most of the people living in Small want Small to remain independent from Big. There is, however, a significant minority of Smallites who value links with Big so highly that they’d like Small… Continue reading A Modest Proposal
Whilst flicking through my cable channels at about 2am last night I came across The Breakfast Club. This is one of my favourite films from the mid-80s and it still looked great last night. There’s one thing that really bothers me about it though. To me the most interesting character in it is the slightly… Continue reading The Breakfast Club
I dont’ know. You spend a week in Southern California and when you get back it’s even hotter in the UK than it was there. Something is badly wrong with the world.

I just want to lie down in a darkened room and listen to Beth Orton records. The weather in the UK isn’t supposed to be like this. I… Continue reading Summertime (and the living is crap)
I use Galeon as my web browser of choice. It’s a Gnome browser based on the same software as Mozilla. Generally it’s a really nice browser, but there’s one thing that I seem to have broken. At some point in the past I configured it to not allow popup windows. That’s generally a good idea,… Continue reading Broken Browser
