A-boot Time

  • by

In recent years we have all seen the impact that flashy, high-priced trainers and soccer shoes have had on the youth and even the not-so-young. In this light it is refreshing to hear about a New York Knicks basketball player who has endoresed a pair of US$15 basketball shoes in an attempt to curb the… Read More »A-boot Time

One of the funniest things I have seen in ages. Have to say that I split my sides laughing at this earlier today… Bertie and Mary go disco

Stop that! It’ll make you go blind…

  • by

A recent study has just published its findings on the possible linkage between lifting heavy weights and blindness. Seemingly the effort exerted when lifting heavy objects can increase the pressure within the eyes leading to a higher risk of glaucoma.

Zidane reportedly said “if you want my shirt I will give it you afterwards” to which Materazzi supposedly… Read More »Headbutt Revisited

Repairing OSX

For a while now, my infallable OSX installation has been behaving strangely. By strangely I mean that it has been loosing printers everytime it reboots, fails to restart the HTTP server after reboot and Spotlight would no longer function. As you might imagine this was somewhat annoying. However, after a bit of searching around and… Read More »Repairing OSX

MT 3.32

Just upgraded to MovableType 3.32 and for the first time ever I had a hiccup in the upgrade. To say that I was slightly concerned was an understatement as I had carelessly forgotten to back-up my DB before starting.
