…Bo Burnham. I don’t normally see a youtube video and think to myself – yeah, they’ve got talent alright. However, I picked up a link to this guy initially from Damien Mulley’s Fluffy Links and maybe it’s just me but I think the kid has talent. He’s genuinely funny even if one shouldn’t laugh at… Read More »Introducing…

It’s official, not that I haven’t known it for some time anyway, but the ESRI have finally sent chills down the spine of every estate agent and recent property investor in Ireland. C’mon lads we’ve been telling you for ages! Yes, houses in Ireland are massively overvalued, yes supply will now ease off to try… Read More »1, 2, 3 – SLUMP!


…somebody wrote the rule book 50 years ago and never bothered releasing a second edition! This morning on the radio I hear that the equality authority, whom I have had the pleasure of dealing with in a professional capacity once upon a time, are putting out to tender, a report to indicate how women are… Read More »Equality…

Yes, the truth is still out there; in Ireland! Just read in the Times this morning that a dossier that was kept by the Irish defence forces for 37 years has been released, including details of UFO sightings around the emerald isle.

Google has just added its much awaited Presentations to its current offering of Docs & Spreadsheets. I read this announcement on the Google blog earlier and just gave it a whirl. First impressions, yes, I’m impressed.

Colin McRae RIP

Scarcely can I believe reading the headlines today that Scottish rally legend Colin McRae was tragically killed in a helicopter accident yesterday, along with his young son and two family friends.

Think your website is big?

Bet you it’s not this big. A spider web discovered in Texas, USA is suspected to be a collaborative effort of thousands of spiders and stretches over 200 yards. This is the kind of stuff that horror movies are made of… source: Boing Boing

My First MT4 Bug?

  • by

A couple of days ago I got around to setting up MovableType 4 on my blog server. All went well for the upgrade as usual and I was very happy with the new features and the new look and feel of the upgraded platform. However, last evening I think I have stumbled across the first… Read More »My First MT4 Bug?
