As the crisis supposedly deepens for the Taoiseach regarding his acceptance of unclear payments, speculation is starting that the mighty McDowell may have to stand down and that the PD/Fianna Fail government is in danger. Sunny days are made of things like this. However, I doubt that the sun is about to shine… source: Irish… Read More »If Only…

IE on Linux anyone?

  • by

A Brazilian web developer who got fed-up of rebooting into Windows to see how pages looked in Internet Explorer came up with this little trick that allows anyone to install and run Internet Explorer on Linux.

Clarke’s Cup

  • by

It may have been Europe that seized the title at the K Club but the Ryder Cup firmly belongs to Darren Clarke – and I’m sure that nobody would disagree.

Vlogging a dead horse?

Picked up this article via Mícheál Ó Foghlú’s Weblog on how podcasts and video logs will be the key to IPTV. Personally I have to say that I am far from convinced about this and would probably go as far as to say that I strongly disagree with it.
