I have fallen in love

This image is taken from RachelCreative and there are many more quality images from a very talented person. I just love that picture, it’s a lovely building, the colours are great and it just has so much about it. I should really never be an art critic! ;) Cat

Firefox

I really can’t stand Internet Explorer, so I’m all for Firefox. It’s got the extension, add ons and themes that I want and is just perfect for me. There is an extensive campaign out on the internet of Firefox friends that want to convince everyone to stop using Internet Explorer and switch to Firefox instead. […]

The impossible battle against cancer

This is one of the most depressing things I have seen in a long time. It is a series of pictures by photographer Renée C. Byer that won this years Pulitzer Prize. If you are unfamiliar with the Pulitzer Prize, it is an American national award for all things print journalism, literary achievements and musical […]

MyBlogLog = MySpace?

I’ve recently joined MyBlogLog as you can see by widget in the sidebar. The idea behind it is to give bloggers a place to, well, a community. Bloggers can list all their blogs, upload pictures, join blog communities to show which blogs they read and send other MBL members messages. In addition widgets, like the […]

Nationstates

A post made by drmike in the wordpress.com support forums made me realise that I haven’t logged into my Nationstates account in a very long time. Turns out that my account was disabled, but with a little help from Timethief it is now back up. So what exactly is Nationstates? Nationstates or rather ‘Jennifer Government: […]

Think before you post

Hat tip to zufallsfaktor. I have to say that this was kind of a reminder to myself as well. It just seems that the internet is getting smaller and smaller as well and I’ve got more and more profiles and sites around the net, such as this blog for example. Direct Link. Direct Link. Cat

Internet forums Part 2.

In an earlier post I made I stated several things that annoyed me about people on internet forums. Becky commented and gave me a link to this and I thought it was so brilliant that I’d share it again: How many forum members does it takes to change a light bulb? 1 to change the […]

Anything new? Not really.

Things have been a bit quiet in my blog lately. I’ve been busy helping my friend pass her English exams which is fairly difficult to do over msn. Several forums I frequent seem to have an increase in posters (and sometimes even good topics), it must be all the people coming back after Christmas and […]

Things that annoy me about people on internet forums

People that don’t bother reading the thread they post in. People that repeat themselves or ask questions and expect them to be answered within minutes. People that cannot spell. People that can’t back up their own arguments. People that believe everyone just wants to hear a yes/no answer. People that spam for the sake of […]

The ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ and how it could work

Before I start explaining this great site I came across the other day, let me just say that I absolutely love Wikipedia. I use it almost every day and can get lost on there for ages just linking from one topic to another. That’s where Omnipelagos.com comes along. The site works on the same principle […]

2006 – My year in Review

And what an interesting year it’s been. These are a few things that I have been up to or that have changed this year, in no particular order: In July Andrew, Ian, Suki and I moved house. Ian bought his parents semi-detached house which technically is only around the corner from our old house, but […]

Gamercards

Matchbox360 has a new member of staff, DarkGashX, who has his own site for Gamercards and will be contributing to the new design which will go live very soon. He has many different ones available, including this one which is exclusive for XL staff at the moment: EDIT: Turns out his site is temporarily unavailable […]

MSN conversations and who shouldn’t talk to me….

This is something that has been annoying me for quite a while now, so bear with me if I get a bit carried away. I seem to have the whole world and it’s dog on my msn list which consists of real life friends, friends from Germany, workmates, my housemates, ex housemates, people I know […]

I hate advertisements

Yes, most of you will probably agree with me, advertisement on the internet is very annoying and sometimes causes long delays when loading pages. I have the Adblock Plus Firefox extension which takes care of most ads on webpages, but lately I have noticed that there are more and more feeds (subscribed using the Sage […]

Games related Blogs and Sites

Now you may have seen that I’ve updated my blogroll with some new links again. Let me introduce you to some of the blogs and sites out there: Matchbox360 is a UK based gaming site that offers 360 and Xbox competitions to UK citizens. Coming up soon is GRAW, PES6 and of course Halo2 competitions. […]

XL and X06

Well, hard to say which was more of an announcement today really! ;) Matchbox360 today announced details of XL which is their first LAN event and will take place in Birmingham on the 25th and 26th of November. If anyone who reads this and hasn’t been to MB yet, check out the XL thread. I’ll […]

Google Image Labeler

I’ve been getting quite addicted to this lately. Basically it’s a new thing from Google (labeled Beta as everything by Google ;)) and it puts you and another person together to label random images so they can improve the quality of tehir picture searches. Both you and your partner have 90 seconds to match the […]
