Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002
You are the bullet points’ bitch
by Neil Turner
I’ve now had an unconditional offer from the university for the MSc course, so I’ll be starting lectures again on the 26th September – exactly 8 weeks today.
Went go-karting yesterday – or rather, watched my friends go go-karting as I was rather hungover and had a dodgy stomach from being out the previous night. Here are the photos.
Talking of which, we went out to Fibbers in York, which is under the hideously-ugly Stonebow building. For the purpose of any Bradfordians, it’s quite a bit like Rios, except smaller, slightly classier and able to attract more well-known bands; Kasabian played there recently and they’ve had Feeder and Graham Coxon in recent years. One of the bands playing soon is called Spasticated Razor Masturbator. Nice.
Still no news from Bulldog and it’s been nearly two weeks since their previous email, which said they’d be in touch “shortly”. Hmmm.
Work is going okay. I’m carrying on as normal this week, then from next week we start building up for Clearing which kicks off on the 18th August.
Steve, a regular commenter here and blogger at randomlog.net, has got a new URL. He hasn’t got redirects working so if you were wondering why his feed has been quiet, now you know.
Dave is getting ready to trash his RSS feed and just offer an Atom 1.0 feed now that Atom is a formal standard. I’m seriously considering this too, although I want to wait for slightly wider aggregator support first. Firefox and Thunderbird won’t properly support it until 1.5 and NetNewsWire has only recently adopted it fully. That said, I do think that Movable Type 3.2 dropping Atom 0.3 in favour of 1.0 for new blogs is a good idea.
Listening to The Now Show on headphones in public is not a good idea. People will wonder why you keep sniggering.
