Braindump 03/04/09

Posted by garethwatkins on April 4, 2009

As you might be able to tell from yesterday’s hyper-dump, I got a good night’s sleep the night before. As an inevitable side effect, I didn’t get a good night’s sleep last night. It means that today I could hardly function, although the guys in my department seemed to prefer the more lethargic version of me. I was a tad fighty the day after the good sleep.

Basically, I could see the problems with everything. And what with feeling all alive I was ready to point them out and offer solutions. I was also more opinionated (almost imeasurably so) than usual. A situation I usually only find myself in after a long night with people I know will have a row with me and enjoy it as much as I do. The best for all concerned is the usual middle-ground version of me, who has had just enough sleep to temper the enthusiasm, but just shy of enough sleep to prevent me from violently airing concerns.

So it’s with that in mind that I hope you will accept my apologies for what is effectively a hypo-dump.

Look! A moron. This is the sort of idiot I was ranting about. He objects to the Street View cameras, then allows himself to be fimled outside his own house for national TV and one of the world’s most visited websites. Give him a moron fine (these will be explained at a later date). It’s also worth noting, all you potential burglars who now can’t use Street View to “case his joint,” that he gives away the exact location of his house (church access road, just off there) and lets you know that there is sufficient cover for a daylight break and enter (very high hedges).

Even more online learning. I’m liking this apparent online education drive. If I could just focus myself in the wasted hours of non-slumber I might be able to learn something useful.

New article: Rant

Posted by garethwatkins on March 25, 2009

I’ve just posted a new article under a new section I’m going to call rant. I’d love to think that there won’t be too many articles jumping up in there any time soon, but unfortunately I just don’t hold out too much faith for the world.

Direct link to the rant.

Yes, I realise it’s late. Consider it a mental form of constipation brought about by having to do the early-start/late-finish thing today.

Been doing the rounds for a few days now, but very good none the less.

The first of many, inevitable, bacon related posts. I have a small obsession with the stuff. You’ll get used to it.

They have to go with his name.

Go on, admit it. You wish you thought of it.

OK, I admit it, inside I’m still 6. This made me laugh.

Braindump 20/03/09

First of all, thanks to those that have commented. It’s a weirder feeling than I was expecting. having been encased in my BB bubble for so many years, I’m almost ignorant of the fact that there are those out there who go in search of the things that interest or excite them. And as a result of discovering this I’m now hugely flattered that anyone would end up here.

It’s a big dump today (pffft, sorry, I promise to grow up one day) as I’ve been off discovering real world interaction. And by interaction I do actually mean beer. I discovered it is good, but may need further investigation. Anyway, with the sounds of Carter USM’s 1992 in my ears, onwards.

Couldn’t give one?
You can now.

How many times a day?

A bat with balls! I may never conjure a greater headline.

New iphone stuff video.

Went to the #gadgetshowmob today. (hit search for a refresh)

Amusing images found on the brilliant Google Street View.

Free NIN/Jane’s Addiction/Street Sweeper stuff.

OK, let’s riot!

I promise to at least try to get something other than a braindump up over the weekend. I’m thinking maybe it’s time to unleash a recipe.
