I had an install of HammerHead lying about on my PC... but I found the NEW HammerHead web site and downloaded like, 80 loop files! AMAZING!

I also downloaded the installer. It's tiny, just bigger than a floppy disk, and is EXCELLENT fun.

PS - looking at the newly created blogs, it seems that this "blog-ger" thing must be catching on... Ah well, I DID tell you all. hehe

Ok, this seriously kicks ass.

In mIRC, if you want to send a quick private message to someone but don't want to bother opening a DCC window and all that crap, insert this line of code into the "script.ini" file of mIRC. This can be reached by opening the mIRC Editor and choosing the Remote tab. Make sure that the "script.ini" file is the one selected in the View menu.

Next, make a submenu. This is done by simply typing a name. So, for instance, the line of code in a submenu would read:

^Morph^'s Custom commands
.Send a PM in the main window:/notice $$1 $$?="Enter the message here."

The $$1 tells mIRC to send the end results of the processed command off to the highlighed nick in the nicklist, and the $$? makes mIRC produce a simple text box to type your message into. The "Enter the message here." text appears above the text box.

When you send the message off, it looks like this in the chat window:

-> <user> <message>

where <user> and <message> are the person's nickname and the message to them.

If you receive a reply from them by the same method, they'll have a dash - like this "-" - either side of their nickname and the message from them to you will be displayed.

Piece of IRC cake, really. ;)

I found a wicked site a while back that had ALL HIS BOOKS on it, but I think I lost the link *sob sob*

Aaaah the smell of a sweet UT mod: http://www.tactical-ops.net/index.php?page=download

Interesting article on alternatives for ASP running (without IIS or PWS):


Whoah this response to an AskMe.com question about subnet masks is like, totally amazing! Read it here:



To fool the cablemusic.com player into giving you 64k streams, do this:

Open the stream of your choice. For instance, Drum and Bass/Jungle can be opened by going to:

Now, in this URL we can see a variable to disable 64k streams. Hah hah...

In hunting through the HTML code for the player window, I came across this subroutine in the Javascripts:

function set64k(b64k)
// JMH b64k = 0 ;
SetCookie(g_cs64k,(g_b64k ? 1 : 0),dexp,'/','cablemusic.com');


Therefore, to enable the 64k streams just change the n64k=0 (off state) to b64k=1 (on state) in the URL.
This'll change the cookie to use 64k streams. However, to open the new 64k streams you have to choose
your station of choice from the little pull-down menu in the centre-left of the player console. That'll
open the 64k stream. Also, if you mouse over the preset buttons you'll see "Station Name (64kbps)".

This will tell you that you've accessed the 64kbps streams - which are apparently "down" at the moment. heh.

*methinks they couldn't afford the bandwidth costs hehe*

And thus concludes my tutorial for today. Class is dismissed children; don't torch my car like you did last lunchtime. ;)

I know there's no way of ever being able to buy this, but it's nice to drool over when you're bored.

Heard this link on the 8:30 news report this morning on Sara Cox's Radio 1 breakfast show: www.onthebog.net

It was described as a place where you could print off a story a day for reading on the bog. Kewl.

Here are some of my mate's cams.

You can find gnomie's cams on the Lockergnome webcams page, if you scroll down to the Gnomie's cams page. My page is there :D

Enjoy, I have food to eat and a music composition to finish for next lesson, which is rapidly nearing...

PS - I'll make some proper loading windows for the cams when I get round to it. l8r d00ds.

Was listening to cablemusic.com this morning at about 10:40am BST (GMT+1) when this choon came on.

Might I just say that your write ups of my sites are more put downs. Think of the things I could say about YOURS... j/k hehe

Seriously, though... Many ppl still use 800x600, and many also use Netcape/Mozilla. Your site looks shite in Netcape, even version 6. I've given up with Netcape 4.6.

Also, I had to tell you that the friends sites page was coming up with horizontal scrollbars in 1024x768 cuz you work in 1154xwhatever. Hah! Sign of a bad designer: doesn't change resolutions to check for compatibility.

Apart from that, not bad...

When U gonna bung my other sites on there as well?

Oh, and If you're aching for a Blog - u look like you're using this guestbook as a lame-ass one - then make your own on Blogger.com! You already have an account... I recommend using your BT webspace for the blog - f2s has that nasty-ass webcache which means you can only load the page once every 24 hours, then you see the same page however many times you update it via ftp.

Aaaah... a nice NZ radio site. They have a live stream, too. The favourite radio station of _Jeremy in Lockergnome. His site is at http://naylor.8m.com/jeremy/index.htm

Well, after helping _Jeremy in Lockergnome chat, here's a quick guide to making your own menus in mIRC. Useful for when you open the app and want to connect to a server - right-click on the Status window and choose a server/room from the menu.


Join a server/room:
.Lockergnome (server):/server chat.planetz.net:6667
.Lockergnome (room):/join #lockergnome

The mIRC editor is the little green button on the taskbar.

So, my complete Status file reads:

.#mIRC:/names #mirc
.#irchelp: /names #irchelp
.names ?:/names #$$?="Enter a channel name:"
Join a server/room:
.Lockergnome (server):/server chat.planetz.net:6667
.FreeTechSupport (room):/join #freetechsupport
.Lockergnome (room):/join #lockergnome
.[=X=] (server):/server b0rk.uk.quakenet.org
.[=X=] (room):/join #[=X=]
.Mister (room) (G][ost and Funny are in here):/join #mister
.#mIRC:/join #mirc
.#irchelp:/join #irchelp
.join ?:/join #$$?="Enter a channel to join:"
.Try double-clicking in a channel window!:
.Whois ?:/whois $$?="Enter a nickname:"
.Query:/query $$?="Enter a nickname:"
.Nickname:/nick $$?="Enter your new nickname:"
..Set Away...:/away $$?="Enter your away message:"
..Set Back:/away
.List Channels:/list
Edit Notes:/run notepad.exe notes.txt
Quit IRC:/quit Leaving

can u see where I put in my own menu?

You can add your own items to the menus. Just start an item with a "." (period/full stop) and separate the option with the actual command with a ":" (colon).

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
