    Vocal Fry

    Apparently we're supposed to find these vocal fry things terribly annoying now. Fell free to join the meandering twitter fight over "policing women's' voices" of your choice. I find them sexy.

    Housekeeping

    The hard drive on the PC was nearly full so I decided to offload all my pictures to the NAS. Jesus what a palaver. Copy all the images to an external hard drive Delete anything obviously fucked up - out of focus, irrecoverably under or over exposed Sort things into some sort of folder...

    When did everyone in this country become completey incompetent?

    Seriously. Was it this bad before I left - I don't remember it being this bad. Just everyone being cheerfully incompetent, and not even good enough at what they do to realise they are completely useless and unprofessional. I just paid a fucking fortune to have my car serviced. Every time the...

    Steve Jobs Legacy

    So. What will it be? On the one hand I remember the complete scepticism the iPod was greeted with, and now digital music is the norm. So did Steve Jobs digify the world and open the door for digital media of all kinds, from music to film to books. And did this destroy the internet by making...

    Wikileaks and Julian Assange

    So. what do people think? The CNN journalist who had the temerity to ask him a couple of awkward questions last week is being trolled pretty badly on facebook. I've been following along and dipping my oar in now and again, but it's depressing stuff. Anyone have any strong opinions? Why do I...

    Email Signatures!

    I really really hate it when people include "Regards" and "Joe Bloggs" as part of their email signature. It turns what sould be a couple of simple back and forth comments (like a IM via email) into some wierd passive agressive exchange. You know the formality of the salutation is fake because...

    A torrent portforward related question

    I have some sort of box in the apartment connected to the phone line and I have a wireless router router plugged into that for the wi-fi. I was never able to get any decent speed on a torrent, and the trauma of working out how to portforward through two boxes was too much for me. The other...

    Tamales

    I've been reading lots of tamale recipes and investigating different ways of making them, for the blog thing. I made some nice sweet ones last night - basically as it was late and I wasn't in the mood to make an elaborate meat filling, I just wanted to play around with the dough. They were...
