Wow. This is impressive.

I wanted to find out the music for one of the Nissan adverts recently shown on UK television, and this site turned up the result first time.

ooooooo000000000oooooooooo... Funny advert archive. :D http://www.adwatch.tv/archive.htm
There's also tons of old-new adverts here... http://www.absolutelyandy.com/tvadverts


Blast from the past... John Craven's Newsround. (!)

I just realised hyperreal.com redirects you to 127.0.0.1... Which is your own computer... Handy if you're running a test web server but looks like the guy screwed up his DNS settings :D

I like this page purely because of the fact that there's a neat little Flash animation with a stingray that follows your mouse up the top-right of the screen. Sweet :D

Nice to see that the error dialogs in Windows, including the ones chucked up in WinMX, are still nice and easy to understand.

Anyone got an English-to-Arabic translation card?


Rightey-ho, I'm off to my mate's house with 1mbit cable. And my computer. :D Bye =)

Today is a good news day. If you own a PS2, and want to play MP3s on it, then I recommend that you check out this page here. http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/3132.cfm

Also, because I think all the UK political parties frankly suck monkey ass, here's a novel solution to the political problem: The MP3 Party. Hurrah! http://www.theregus.com/content/6/25850.html


Going round to my mate's house tomorrow, 1mbit connection rar rar rar :D

PS - If you don't find pictures of men doing indescribable things to a Range Rover's exhaust pipe while wearing women's lingerie absolutely, rib-cracking hilariously funny, then don't bother clicking on it. It's much funnier if you understand the joke behind it.

If you're using Windows 2000 (PLEASE say you are - XP's like Windows 2000 encased in Duplo, see this page for my current Anti-XP desktop :) then the Windows 2000 High Encryption Pack is an essential download. Come on, it's only 192kb - even I can download that in less than a minute.

Just. :S

As a general rule I don't clean my computer keyboard, as I don't drool over it - but after seeing this mod of an Apple G4 case I had to get the saliva mop out.


Oh my GOD that mod's so tight! :D

Man, I hated BT already - this just strengthens my apathy for them. BTBroadband Accuses P2P Users Of Copyright Abuse (theregister.co.uk)

They're almost on a par with AOHELL now in terms of crappiness :D

Ellllooooooooooooooooooo!

I'm back from holidays in France, and lovin' it - the weather turned nice in the UK just as I came back. It had been raining for ages apparently according to my mates...


Not much to say at the moment, just telling everyone that reads this (all of 2 people probably hehe) that I've not died or anything. :D

Bye for now...
Christopher
