Fix the clock Mike!

October 3rd, 2006

I was walking to the office and found this rather amusing. You may notice the clock next to the sign is not working, and a small reminder to Mike so he does not forget to fix it. :-)

Beer Cannon Montage

September 22nd, 2006

I have come across this on YouTube and, well, it’s daft enough for me to enjoy it.

The Wenger Giant Knife

August 24th, 2006

Wenger has released the 85 tools, $1,200 (USD) Giant Knife Version 1.0. This humongous Swiss Army knife weighs in 1.2 kilos and measuring over 22cm.

more information and images are available on the Outdoor Life website.

I have no need for this tool, but I want one anyway. :-)

Steven finds his secret is out

August 15th, 2006

I dare say that this picture of a poster will be circulation the blogosphere for some time, but I thought I would help it on it’s way. I have seen billboards used for job applications before, but never divorce notifications.

Bandits at three o'clock

August 8th, 2006

I am not really in to computer games, and that normally includes games on the Internet, but I was really impressed with Goggles. This is a fun flash based flight simulator that uses the satellite imagery from Google Maps.

The Llama Song

August 8th, 2006

Last night I was watching the BBC’s Click Online programme that I recorded at the weekend. Half way through they played the Llama song, that I most enjoyed, and I am please to report that is can be found online here. A Christmas number on do you reckon?

Please note this video is not appropriate for someone who does not like llamas or ducks. :-)

Price comparisons, the future of marketing

July 31st, 2006

After watching the Sunderland air show a few friends and I stopped off at to a local shop to stock up on essentials and we noticed the price comparison above. So if you want Draught Guinness (from a can) then the cheapest place to get it is Tesco, or Asda, or Morrisons.

The Zidane headbutt – new video evidence!

July 14th, 2006

Another top quality report form The Regiter about the Zidane headbutt incident. :-)

LED Live

July 13th, 2006

I remember many years ago, when the web was in it’s infancy, there was a site where you could control a model train set. By clicking a button you could select where you wanted it to go and watch the web-cam as it trundled to it’s destination. The site no longer exists but this kind of interactivity between the Internet and the real world is something that still excites me today.

The reason I mention this is I have found the web site LED Live where you can submit a line of text that is then displayed on LED matrix boards in Seattle, USA. Not quite as fun as a train set, but as you can see from above I had some fun never the less.

Yahoo V Google

June 6th, 2006

I have just found this experimental search comparison tool that compares Yahoo and Google. Just enter your search phrase here and it will do the search on the two sites and visually link the results showing the difference in order.

Another interesting version of the tool that compares the US and Chinese versions of Google is here
