Crysis

Shake it, baby!

So it’s that time of the week that everyone loves so much again. (And remember, it’s UKTA Radio night tonight, too). But today is no ordinary Monday for me, because I’m expecting Play.com to deliver the latest installment of one of the best PC games ever made – Crysis.

Yarrr, Me Harties!

Posted by | Posted in Pirates | Posted on 26-09-2008

I know, I know, I’m a week late. International Talk Like A Pirate Day was last Friday. But do you know what reminded me? This story from the BBC News website. I was amazed recently, as I didn’t actually realise that real-life pirates existed. I suppose it’s a bit silly when you think about it, but the only time I ever hear of pirates is while drooling over Keira Knightley in Pirates Of The Carribean. (You know, after the many offers that Jack Sparrow extended to Elizabeth Swan during those films, you would have thought that at least once she would have taken him up on the offer to wear nothing from his wardrobe…)

Advertising – You Don’t Mind, Do You?

Posted by | Posted in Site News | Posted on 24-09-2008

Do as I say, not as I do…

OK, as much of a hypocrite as I feel right now, I’ve decided to try out some advertising on the site. I know I went off on one the other day about how much I hate advertising, but hosting the tune downloads here and paying for the bandwidth will eat up some cash each month, so if I can help the site to pay for itself, then it’s only sensible to do so.

And I didn’t have to say anything, either. I could have just slipped it in without saying a word, and pretended that it’s always been there. But no! Being the Captain Honest that I am, I decided to let everyone know that I am going to place some ads on the site. So dont worry if you see the site layout change somewhat over the next day or so – it’s just me playing around with ad positions etc.

I might have something useful to say today, I haven’t decided yet. But if I do, you should see it posted before the working day is over. Ciao for now, daddy-o’s!

It’s Your Round Isn’t It?

“Pint of wife-beater, please. Oh, and some smack.

OK, so it’s Monday morning again. And this time I have actually got a full week at work ahead of me. I think things might pick up this week too. At least my brain has recovered from the wedding, but I have to admit I’ve yet to think of something meaningful to say today. Perhaps after all the alcohol consumption I’ve witnessed over the last few days, the topic of alchol, tobacco and drug use is as good a topic as any.

Wedding Bliss

Posted by | Posted in Random | Posted on 21-09-2008

And They All Lived Happily Ever After…

Well, I’m back from the wedding. As expected, I didn’t get time to post any blog entries over the last couple of days, so thankfully the WordPress thingy did it’s job and posted a couple of entries that I’d written before I left. It’s nice to see that they’re still accurate too! I thought the world might have suddenly changed, what with me being out of town for once, but no, everything is still as it was.

I’m a little too busy/tired/drunk to write anything meaningful today, which is just as well as I’m sure my brain wouldn’t be able to come up with the goods anyway. Still, a good time was had by all, and that’s the main thing.

Tomorrow, I shall probably be able to get back to my usual self, and post more philosophically-challenging drivvel that we’ve all come to know and love. So that’s it from me today.

Ciao!

My Thoughts On Chrome

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 19-09-2008

…but beware it carries a terrible curse! … Oh, that’s bad!… But it comes with a free frogurt!… That’s good!… But the frogurt is also cursed… That’s bad… But you get you’re choice of toppings!… That’s good!… But the toppings contain pottasium benzoate…

I’m a bit of a techy person when it comes to computers and the internet, so like every other Google fanboi, I downloaded Google Chrome and have since been using it on a daily basis. I still have to use Firefox 3 at work (which is no bad thing, of course) but at home I’m free to browse the endless pits of the web with Google’s new baby. So what do I think of it then?

I’m Not Really Here. OoooOOooOoo!

Posted by | Posted in Stupidity | Posted on 18-09-2008

I’ll see your IQ, and raise you some common sense.

People, I find, are strange creatures. We’re capable of many things, both good and bad. You often hear stories about how heroic mums manage to save their children from a burning house (they obviously dont have my annoying smoke detectors installed) or how people with incurable diseases help so many others through charity work or fundraising events, despite being on their last legs themselves.

Mid-Week Antics

Speak now, or forever hold your… beep!

It’s Wednesday – slap bang in the middle of the working week. The time of the week when people are (supposed to be) well and truly stuck into the weeks work; where they’ve had a couple of days to get started and should be making progress; but where they know they’ve still got a couple of days to go until the weekend. But as it happens, that’s not the case for me this week. Oh no. Today is my last day at work this week, as I’ll be travelling to Bristol to attend a friend’s wedding.

A Load Of Bankers

You’re not very highly trained in espionage, are you Will? Yeah, Will! Is that a kitten?

Well, well, well. Yesterday, as I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, Lehman Brothers Investment Bank filed for bankruptcy protection, as it’s basically gone broke. Naturally, being America-based, it has had repercussions all over the world. Quite why that is, I’ve no idea, but when America is doing something wrong, everyone else seems to suffer.

Ahh, Monday Morning

Posted by | Posted in Monday Mornings | Posted on 15-09-2008

Carlsberg dont do mornings. But if they did, they’d probably be the best mornings in the world.

Have you ever noticed how you can never quite bring yourself to get up as soon as your alarm clock goes off in the morning? I realised this weekend that it must be a mental thing. Over the course of the weekend just gone, I had nothing to get up for especially, yet I found myself waking up early anyway. As much as I like to lay in on a weekend, I just couldn’t. I knew that if I tried to go back to sleep I’d fail miserably, and when I finally dragged my arse out of bed, I’d feel quite pants. So I got up at about 8am on both Saturday and Sunday. (I usually get up at around 7:15am for work, so 8am wasn’t much of a lie-in really).
