I thought the great stock market crash of last year had taken them all out, but people are still launching crap web sites.
Take a quick look at DriverSMS. Never mind that we all know the business model won’t work, I’d like you to just look at the actual application and think how many people you know who would actually use it. Doomed, I tell you! Doomed!
The clock is ticking, we will see how long they last.
My friend Ciaran has gone mad. Unlike me he isn’t rushed off his feet at work so he is surfing the web for amusement. Just to prove his lack of marbles I’m going to share some of the URLs he has sent me today with you. You have been warned 😉
Proof, if proof was ever needed, that the internet is full of a load of old rubbish.
Another day, another bunch of problem reports. My job at the moment is an unalloyed joy as I wade through elliptic descriptions of supposed problems that may, or may not, have appeared when users have tested our system. To make matters even more interesting, we are still developing parts of the system as we approach that mythical ‘go live’.
Expect to see me become more manic as we edge closer to having a working system which will go live (whether we like it or not) on the 19th of November.
Meanwhile, my tennis game is getting shot away. This may be connected to work, or it could just be a reflection of my talent.
And finally (as they say on all good news bulletins), I’ve discovered that at least some of my contemporaries from university have done well for themselves since we graduated. Steve Clews is a director of Anisa Consulting. Not bad, for a Cornish boy, I always said he was going to go far 😉
Update on the techie tasks;
The web site makeover is still progressing though. All this work just for a different background colour, blimey.
Good news of the day, Bobo is home safe and sound. It is now about 12:30 and she is having a ‘snooze’. The sweepstake is open for when she will actually complete her impression of Rip Van Winkle. Answers on a postcard to the usual address.
Sorry to get all technical in my diary, but it has to be done every now and then.
I’ve got two techie tasks on the boil which will affect your viewing pleasure. The first is to get the archive listing to the left of this page to work. It is generated automatically by the lovely people at Blogger but doesn’t want to render properly from this web server. It shall be fixed.
The second top techie task is to conver the whole web site to the look and feel of this web page. This may take some time so bear with me whilst this work is done.
There is not a lot else to report at the moment. Bobo will be coming home this weekend so preparations for her arrival will probably start soon.
In the absence of any actual content, please send me some. Email me at email@example.com. It will be a good way to see if anyone is actually reading this drivel.
Found it. Check out the SPF-40 here.
Oh, and Bobo bought me a Playstation 2 as well.
You will be glad to know that I survived another birthday. It was rather a good one actually.
I normally try and take the day off when it is my birthday but circumstances conspired against me this year. The good news about working on my birthday was that we had a ‘morning tea’. This is the custom of stopping work for ten minutes and having a cup of tea (or coffee in my case) and a slice of cake (or pies and sausage rolls yesterday) with your colleagues. A cross between a tea break and a tea party sums up the experience.
The best thing about birthdays is definitely presents. My beloved bought me a number of things, but the item that got the most notice was my new sailing watch. It is the ultimate gadget and everyone in the pub last night was very impressed that I could tell them the ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure from it. As for the compass, well …
I will pop over to the Casio web site and try and find a picture of this watch to end all watches.
