Explorer destroyer #

This blog don't really have a target audience. The exception to that is the stupid. A massive indicator of stupidity is using "Microsoft Internet Explorer". People who use IE are deffo not the target audience of this blog. With this in mind i have implemented

Explorer Destroyer

It's a bit of code you slam in ya blog and when it loads it then goes to a "irritating" page telling the reader to get firefox. Stupid people sometimes need help. Also using my AdSense code i get $1 every time someone uses the button, funny.

Hey if you enjoy your PC being used as a spam-bot or you just love adware, then stick with IE. Don't come to me when ya PC fucks up, i've got no time for ya.

i've been Rasterbating with The Rasterbator (do it on the web-site or download a program that will do it on your desktop). Input a pic and it will spit out a PDF. Print this PDF (all pages) and you get your pic all "blown up" made out of loads of A4 sheets. i inputed:

and got:

it can do it in color but i only got a B&W printer

go look at the site gallery for some amazing looking ones

i might go stick this up on the streets somewhere, silly fun to be had (:

OK del.icio.us #

What can i say, del.icio.us just gets better. It is officially one of the most useful sites online.

i love BlogRolling (a permanent link list for ya blog), on a site you want to add a link to from ya blog. Just click the blogroll shortcut and press "Add Link" then OK and it's added, well easy.

i thought there must be something on the net that will let you add your del.icio.us bookmarks to ya blog. i searched the net for a third party del.icio.us/blogger tool. What do ya know, del.icio.us have a very tool to put ya del.icio.us links on ya web-site/blog. It's called linkrolls, a little script you put in ya web-site/blog template and ya latest del.icio.us links are there in ya blog, how fucking cool is that ?

It sort of gives ya readers a insight into where you are at the moment, what you are looking at and where ya head is at. Go and look in me sidebar and below me blogroll you'll find my 50 latest links (i could change it to my 100 latest links or my 1257 latest links, whatever).

i urge everyone on the net to get a del.icio.us account, they seem to have done it perfect (:

London made me do it #

i had a funny day today, nothing weird just things conspired to make me happy (: i woke up from a dream of a place that i seem to have entirely created (i'v dreamt of it a few times). A beach with explory rocks/caves on the right end and a seaside village at the other end. It's always sunny and the sea is aqua. i think it's based on Borth, but Borth is such a scrotum of a place i don't know how i got from there to it. I may have even been there. i even know all the land behind the beach (maybe i should write stories about it). Anyway i woke from this with a feeling i really should visit the sea and pigeons and a magpie that lives round our way (i saw him as a kid hanging round with pigeons, like learning how to get food and stuff) shouting at me to get out of bed and go somewhere, i when to get some bread. On the way back (just by me house) loads of seagulls were make a right ruckus, nice like (: Another sea reference. OK i got to go to the sea. The only sea we got round er' is the Thames, so off me pop:

On the way back, crossing the road by the Savoy, i saw a couple who seemed to be in the just got together/playing games time. Well he ran across the road, seeming to race her, she fanning annoyance. i saw this and it made me laff, she saw this and knew what i found funny and it made her burst out laffing. When she caught up with her B-friend she turned round and beamed me a massive cheese grin.

So that was my mission today, to make this stranger smile. I don't know why London wanted the lady to laff but i don't care, i just do what London tells me (:

Half Of Corporate PCs Can't Run Vista #

If you want to get Windows Vista when it comes out, you probably should be thinking about new hardware, according to the research firm. It estimates that about half of corporate PCs aren't powerful enough to run the forthcoming operating system.

this makes me very happy as the streets of London are going to be full of top-end (top-end now) PCs. Upgrade madness is good for the "Skip-Rat". So if ya fancy a new PC, just keep ya eyes out :D

Firefox+del.icio.us+Foxylicious=happy #

i have multiple PCs in my place (Windows PCs, Linux PCs, an Apple and a Laptop) they all have Firefox on um. When i back-up my bookmarks with Firefox on the different machines i start to get a lot of bookmarks.html files (bookmarks.html is the file Firefox creates so you can import them back into Firefox, maybe on another PC). Well this isn't good is it ? I think i'v found a nice way to keep all my bookmarks up to date on every machine with del.icio.us and some other tools.

Firefox (just put down that IE now)
a del.icio.us account (it's free)
the del.icio.us Firefox extension
the Foxylicious Firefox plugin (this is the good bit)
maybe del.icio.us loader initially (to get your bookmarks into del.icio.us)

This is my del.icio.us page. You can tag all your bookmarks with more than one tag but as you can see i only tag um with one tag, this is the clever bit. As you can also see i use "tag bundles" (click settings then under experimental). My "tag bundles" are: AV, art, bit, blog, fun, hard, info, etc, those will become the "folders" in my Firefox bookmarks (you'll see). It may take a bit of time if you already have a lot of bookmarks in del.icio.us to get them set up with just one tag each and in tag bundles, i just got drunk and did it watchin' telly. Everything done and installed Foxylicious.

Foxylicious is under the "Tools..." menu. Just put ya username and password in and use the settings below. Then just click "Update Bookmarks". Now it may seem like it's doing nothing, just give it a bit of time... a bit more... then it should work and all your bookmarks are imported from del.icio.us, nice.

Foxylicious can be a bit "odd" about what it imports, some of the tags may be missing when you import. As a tag can belong to more than one tag bundle i made a tag bundle called "missing" and added them to that and what do ya know, it imported them. Bit buggy but it worked, i then just "Manage Bookmarks..." in Firefox, move the missing tags to where they should be and delete the missing folder.

this is what i end up with:

you can see how the bookmark "folder" hierarchy relates to my del.icio.us hierarchy, easy.

i don't even bother saving my bookmarks into Firefox (Ctrl+D) anymore. i just click the tag button:

and when you type the first letter of one of ya tags a little "auto complete" menu pops down, it's so easy. Now i know all me bookmarks are safe and i can import um any time i want thanks to the very useful Foxylicious (i love that pic of the fox), enjoy.

Day 3 ~ Tate Modern (wot na pix) #

Videoblogging Week 2006

HAHA near the end a security guard came up to me and told me (all polite like) to stop filming, he was OK, then this other security guard (plain clothes, maybe he was head of security) came over and (trying to sound mean) said "NO PHOTOGRAPHY", i just burst out laffin'. What was he going to do, Art me to death.

Me mem-card ran out just at the top of the escalator (where all the painting are), but that was OK, it won't spoil it for when you go to the Tate (: It was while i was lookin' at the paintings that a guard spotted "Shirt Cam" and radioed to all the others, and it wasn't even filming. You did get to see "Rachel Whiteread's white boxes" which was nice. OK that's the "dangerous" one over with (i was hunted down the whole time), tomorrow i'll get back to nice things.
