Hmm... 30 years in the jungle... I couldn't do that. Imagine the spam I'd have to delete after I got back; and plus I don't think there's many wireless access points out there. I'd be swinging off the vines from frustration if I was left out there. =/

Someone did it though. http://www.primitiveways.com/jungle_30_years.html

Mmmmm, I just got a nice prerelease copy of Hail To The Thief (the new Radiohead album) which isn't out in the UK until June the 9th. Good album :D

Highly recommended purchase if you're a Radiohead fan. If you're a Radiohead newbie: start with OK Computer, work up from there. :)

Aaah, another fine parody. This time in video. =) George W. Bush and our revered PM Tony Blair sing Electric 6's "Gay Bar"

Not to be missed.


O yer, and Infogrames is now to be known as Atari, just in case I didn't say that before.

I keep on receiving emails with .hta attachments, which Outlook helpfully blocks. The senders are "apparently" MAILER DAEMONs, these two times from excite.com and mailexcite.com (ringing any alarm bells already?)

... Oh, plus there's a spelling mistake in the reply. Robots don't make replies. AND they include the original message.


I can only assume the .hta file contains a VBScript virus, but I'm not going to open them. However, I am going to virus scan the emails later with AVG, after I've updated the virus definitions.


Just a quick warning. :)

Apple music service hits right note

... Sounds a little flat to me still. I'll just stick to borrowing my mates' albums and ripping them to 320kbps :D

Some interesting essays here, including a man's thoughts on how we shouldn't classify Jazz as just one thing, and an interesting item informing the misinformed customer as to just where all their money goes when they spend it on an album...

     "...To assume that just because the artist isn't getting most of the money, that this somehow means someone is cheating him, simply does not follow."

Wise words there, my friend.

http://www.outsideshore.com/cadenza/index.htm for more articles and stuff. Oh, and he's a Jazz musician too. Good stuff =)


Oh... And I just read that the Matrix films are to be remastered to IMAX. Woot!

There's a sad irony to this... You wonder where the cigarette the guy's smoking was made. :/
