This could happen, maybe not out and about, but just out on holiday and have no access to your favourite graphics application and the only one available is the sad excuse that Microsoft provides, you know, Paint.. Well, worry no more. Some cool guys up in Finland have produced a pretty neat website, that has a fully fledged graphics program.
It's very easy to use, you can if you want, have your account on the webiste. You can of course upload images, which is where the application comes into it's own. Just a sneek preview of what you get to play with....
Not much of a review, but I think it's darn neat, can be useful. if you want to make nice wonky images when your bored at the office ? not that I'm recommending that you
Oh you want the URL ? well, here is its... www.sumopaint.com
Go on, give it a try you know you want to .
Jan 3: New Year Resolutions
OK, a bit late. but just felt that, you know, better late than never. Anyway, how many of you have set yourselves up with resolutions for the year? I made one a few years back, t'is very easy to keep, in fact, I've kept it ever since, that was, to never make them again. It appears that I was correct in this, it has now been shown that making resolutions is bad for you, not only in the fact that, well, you will never keep it, but that it's bad for your health. SO says the BBC.
Deciding to turn over a new leaf in the new year could do more harm than good, a mental health charity has warned. Mind has urged people not to feel they must start 2009 armed with resolutions for self-improvement. The charity said resolutions which focus on issues such as the need to lose weight or job worries create a negative self-image. Source
I can imagine that the resolution to loose weight is most likely doomed to failure. Job worries, why is that a resolution? no idea, maybe I'l get of my arse and look harder. But I don't think that in it's self will not help too much with the current prevailing economic situation.
They use the forever usefully line, It will create a negative self-image. This is, I bet the same folks who also say, that telling a kid that they have failed and exam could damage their self image for the rest of their lives. What a load of Bull. You learn from mistakes, you learn from failures it's called learning, it's part of life. You never stop learning. I bet the last thing you learn in life is that there isn't any heaven, but you have no way of telling anyone. My view anyway.
So, now that we are now 3 days into 2009, things are, so far, pretty much the same. Only time will tell.
Jan 1: Welcome to 2009
Well well well, that's 2008 all done and consigned to history, never to come along again. good riddance I say. So All my readers, well the 1 or 2 of you who pop by every now and then to see if I have written anything new? I haven't since well November 2008. Just too busy sorry. You know the credit crunch and all that boring stuff. I wish you all a great 2009 and hope that. though it will start tough for a lot of us, that it does turn out good.
One big change that is happening, is that the lovely folks in the USA have gotten rid of a Dick and A Bush who have been doing nothing but make the world a worse place to live, all OK in their fine Ranches, Tax paid security guards and all that. Lets hope that the Obama team can bring along better things.
Israel and Hamas currently are behaving like a bunch of teenagers who are having a squabble over who's the Daddy again. It's a no he started it first, no he did arguments, either way, they both need to grow up and learn that fighting isn't the answer. It's a waste of energy, in more ways than one, like how much does it cost to fly 80 odd F16 fighter bombers for a 5hr sortie? Not the same as it costs to fill 80 odd SUV's. Who's going to pay for all the buildings that have been demolished? Oh, yes, us tax payers here in Europe, we paid for the last lot to be built! I'm sure there were other ways to knock them down if the Israelis didn't like the look of them. I don't think it will be the Israelis who will be paying to have them rebuilt, Oh, yes, that's the US Tax payer. I guess it's fine going to war when someone else is paying the tab.
The credit Crunch? yep, that's mainly the banks not trusting each other. Ya, tis fine if your mate thinks he has a nice scheme that will guarantee you a return of 12% every year, only to find that he was on top of a huge pyramid scheme, well that's Mr Madoff (or Made off with your cash).
So I can say good riddance to 2008 and welcome 2009!
Nov 5: Winds of Change
It's been a long night, an even longer nightmare for the world, 8 years to be exact. Thanks to the youth of the USA, who have woken up, were inspired, that they can change their president, that they can change the world, that they have the power to make changes. Thanks for making the change. Only on the 20th of Jan 2009 will we all wake up from the nightmare that was George W Bush. Someone who just couldn't, shouldn't have taken the role of president. I have always believed that he was actually a puppet. and Dick Chaney was the real president.
Lessons to be learnt? That religion and politics really do not mix, I don't have problem with people believing in religion, I'm pretty agnostic, but believe, let live, we all share this small planet somewhere in what we know as the universe, so why can't we, you know, just get along? Naive maybe, but we really do only have one planet.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings, just super glad that Obama has won. There was a song that came out at the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I think it's a good one for today, maybe the lyrics aren't 100% correct, but the feeling is most certainly there.
Oct 25: Wasssup man!
Aug 10: And it finally stopped raining
I haven't blogged, commented on the going ones in London, or the tech stuff. I didn't even comment of FF 3 being released last month sometime. If you haven't got it, I can only recommend it. I have been testing it from it's early days, when it wasn't even safe to use it, but that's me, living on the bleeding edge of technology. I have heard that for some people it crashes all the time, I haven't been able to see these systems, so I cannot comment. But if they say it crashes for them, then I have no real option but to believe them. But I would like to know why. That will be for another occasion.
The great auspicious day 08/08/08, one good thing about that, is it works on what ever calender system you use, be it European or US. We now have end to end coverage of the Olympics from China, the opening was, as you would expect, pretty good, I can't say it's the best in the world, it's the best one yet, London will have to pull something bloody amazing out of the hat, one would be that it won't cost more than the £9billion ! I bet it will end up costing more. Not really for me to worry about.
Summer has gone on holiday for this week-end. But one thing when there is rain, there is pretty much likely be a rainbow to follow, and it didn't disappoint. check the image below,
Jun 3: It's a fine life
May 27: What is the Blogsphere?

Anyway. I'll post something up this week-end. 3 days off Wooop!
Mar 31: Ahh lets just waste it all!
So sod this stuff about global warming, bahh humbug! Burn, over use everything! that's the way to go these days! So what if the grand kids have nothing but sand and rocks. Who goes to the North Pole to see the Ice? Cold, windy, useless place anyway. Dark for 6 months of the year, useless place really isn't it. Why not have it as a place where you can windsurf, or water sky around the pole ? Ya useless place really.
Mar 29: I had a Dream. Another one

Mar 2: Be worried, Very Worried?!
Yep, no chance in hell to sort out any of the world issues with this kind of educated people? Or are they educated? Looks like it's a suitable situation if your a politician. These one, I guess all watch Fox News or something else of low caliber.
Feb 27: Earth Quake in the UK
Big News! There was a Huge earthquake here in the UK, many chimney stacks knocked of roofs. Pandemonium, as bricks hit the pavements when nobody was there. Some one could have been hurt. Cars could have been crushed under the weight of 10 bricks. Oh yes, it was lethal some newts were woken up.
Yes, that's roughly how the media has reported it. but really nothing much happened, and yes, I did feel it last night, thought it was a rather big underground train (I live just over the northen line link between Kennington to Waterloo. so, wow!
For more information check what the BBC said.
Oh and yes, this has nothing to do with Global warming.
Looks like earthquakes around the area of Mrket Rasen, there have been quite a few more over the past few years. Check out this link from the British Geological survey.
