Jan 18: Oh What a surprise
Oh what a surprise, Israel announces a ceasefire in time for Obama's Inauguration. Who would have guess that ? Oh, Olmert won't be able to ring Bush up and ask him to delay the inauguration, like he he did for the UN resolution when Condi Rice was told by Bush via Olmert to abstain.
Israel is to halt its three-week military offensive against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said. He said Israel had achieved its aims and the unilateral ceasefire would start at 0200 (2400 GMT). But he said troops would remain in Gaza for now.
This issue here is, Hamas don't really agree with the fact that the IDF will be lurking around Gaza, would you like to have the IDF in your back yard? I just can't trust what anyone from the IDF say. There was this website, Israeli Defense Force Spokeperson website. Now, this is a very new website. It hasn't been a website that has been around for the purpose telling people what the IDF does.

May 3: Server upgrade *UPDATE*
Well folks, this site will go off line for sometime over the week-end. Just to let you know....
Other than that... some one went into a shop to hold it up and wanted to steal a Sony PSP3, the shop keeper said they had none in stock... SO the man ended leaving with only a Microsoft Xbox.
Simple moral of this story, check the stocks first, before trying to steal something.... Sheeesh
*UPDATE* 05/05/07 around 13:00 hours
Well, the upgrade when fairly well, just my gallery site has got a wee hitch. I'm sure I'll have that sorted before the week-end is out.
Also to add, the very nice folk at Servage did 90% of the hard work. Thanks again.

Feb 16: New sign
For many years it was a yellow triangle, with a sort of, what looked like a fan in the middle. This was/is of course your usual radiation sign. The one you wee when you go to get an X-ray. It's not very optrusive. It kind of frendly in a, you know, I'm dangerous, but just be careful when you see me around kind of way. The folks at the International Atomic Energy Authority seem to think that the old yellow triangle is getting a but too friendly and need to change it.
The new symbol is being launched today by the IAEA and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to help reduce needless deaths and serious injuries from accidental exposure to large radioactive sources. It will serve as a supplementary warning to the trefoil, which has no intuitive meaning and little recognition beyond those educated in its significance.Oh you want to see the new sign? you really do? I mean, it's not going to go down well in Hopitals is it? The way it's now coloured, It's red you see, and we all know what red mean? yes, Danger Danger Danger! Woop Woop (goes some alarm somewhere) Ok. here it is.
Ok, that was the old one, the new one is below....
Are you going to be happy seeing that in your local Hospital? you know, for nuclear examinations... ya, right Doc, you inject me with that stuff and I'll run a mile! My hair will drop out and I'll Diiieee? Well, I see some explaining will need to be done...
Dec 25: Well, tis Christmas
To all my readers ( the one or two who pass by)
I wish ye a merry Christmas, fill ye self with food and much Drink as ye can manage.
For ye shall raise a Glass to the Godfather of Soul, Who passed away this morning at 06:45gmt
Oct 10: Wha? No Power.
This got me thinking a bit, I was thinking of ways to find out what happened, I though, Oh I'll google it, easy, Duh Andy, there is NO power, your 'puter is no use... use your imagination... so I turned on my radio, But hey, that works on mains, so I was stuck there. Luckily, I had radio in my mobile. So on that went to listen to BBC London. No news on there, I had obviously missed the update.. I also hazard the guess that it had to be Local, as the radio was on air, but then they would be, it's the BBC! But it also had to be local, if it was affecting a wider area, the BBC would be having more important things to say about how not to panic, and that everything is being done to fix the problem as soon as possible,
What I did hear though, was on the traffic news, All traffic lights in the area around the MI5/6 building, OK , ok, they said Vauxhall.were out. kaput, not working, so there were huge traffic jams. nothing else, no further news.
So, I went for a walk around the block, it was a big walk as I never quiet got around a block when another one diverted me. But I did manged to ask a local Police man as to what all the commotion was about, he gave me the answer.
There was a power failure at the local Vauxhall sub-station and the local electric guys were doing their very best to fix the problem as soon a possible. I thanked him for his time and continued to get a bit lost...
Finally got home, Still no power, what can I do, I listen to more radio that bored me silly... then important things like, how am I going to feed myself this evening? I only have an electric cooker and combo-microwave. I though about cutting branches of the trees, to make a campfire... I now how to light them, after all I do have Ray Mears book on how to survive on a desert island.
Blip, PC kicks back into action.... Power failure over, Ray Mear's tips on how to have a campfire in your kitchen, and not burn the house down, will have to wait for another power outage.
Jun 8: It's the final 24 hours..
The FIFA world cup is upon us. Tomorrow all the fun and games start, parties will go on all night for the winning teams, and well, loads of tears for the losing ones, yes, some one has to win and someone has to loose. I don't give too hoots about political correctness. If you get less goals than the other team, you lose, none of this you didn't pass the goal stuff, you failed, your a looser, hopeless nitwit etc.
Got that off my chest, I don't like PC terms, they are so stupid and are mainly made by people who live in an office with no windows and unfortunately they do have a door, can someone lock that door and get rid of the key ?
Ok, so this year we have a sporting chance of winning (that's the England team) we have our Tall man , Mr Crouch who is nearly 7foot tall.. (is he in the wrong sport? Basketball would have been better?) We have the two strikers, Mr M Owen, and Mr W. Rooney (his foot is now fine, but if he should be tackled badly, he may be injured again and that would be that) nice idea to tell the opposing team your weakness isn't it... But there you go.
I would like the England team to win for one reason only... so that the media will shut the Feck up about ... In 1966 when we won the world cup speil Look guys that was 40 years ago ... on 36 years ago since you last had it. That's over 1 generation!
SO, England to WIN.... Only so that they don't keep reminding me how old I am!
Oh and by the way, the clever clots at Microsoft have made a nice application so that you can keep track of where your team is have created their Football Scoreboard. You can download it from here. It's a 1.1MB file so it shouldn't take long to download. Just unzip and run the program.
On a serious note, this is incredibility important for 3rd world countries where your getting complete generations being wiped out. Where children lose their parents, uncles and aunties, maybe even more. I'm not saying the this is the churches fault, but I do say, is that they have a lot to answer for.

Apr 12: Bird flu questions.
Here is the question the BBC askes: Source
- Have you been affected by the Scottish alert?
- Have you stopped buying chicken?
- Are you a poultry farmer?
- What actions are you taking as a result of the news?
- What action should be taken to prevent the spread of the bird flu virus?
- What are your concerns?
- No, it was only one swan, could have been infected anywhere, but decided that it would be lovely to pops it's clogs in a small harbour of a scotish village would be a nice place, or it got ill, landed out in sea and died there and ended up being washed ashore.
- No, one case of Bird Flu is not enough, come on?! If others don't buy it, woot makes it cheaper for me!
- Err Nope, I live in London, no room for a huge warehouse full of chicks.
- None. Not much I can do is there?
- Come on be serious, you don't expect me, an IT professional to be able to give a qualified answer to that kind of question do you? Leave it to the experts, if they mess up, we can easily blame Tony for not keepin' an eye on the birds.
- Err non at the momet, I think some people are making a mountain out of a mole hill, yep it sells papers, get people off the ball of what's really happening.
I can see you asking, what's this got to do with anything? It was a nasty bit of work and those who wrote it should be shot, quatered and body parts sent to the 4 corners of the earth, But some good has come out of this.
Found this on one of my sites I visit :
He was charged after police found pornographic images of children on his computer. A spokesman for the Paderborn, Germany police credited the worm with uncovering a crime that probably would have otherwise gone undetected. There is no word whether the worm has helped uncover any other crimes.
All I can say, sometimes, just sometimes some good can be got from something really bad. This is rare!

Nov 26: Just a Very Quick Note Before..
That's it. All is working very well and everything is just plodding along.
Nov 1: 400 Years Ago.
That's him over there on the right. But if you notice there is something awfully similar with the yesterdays terrorist ( they all have a beard and dodgy hats on, but then that's not really being fair is it, twas a fashion of the time. Guy Fawkes or as he liked to call himself John Johnson to his mates was a catholic who really didn't like King Charles very much so decided that on the opening of Parliement in 1605 to bomb the houses of parliament with a few barrels of gun powder.
Guy or as he identified himeself, John Johnson, was caught in the act as we all know and because he was a catholic, he was cut up into many pieces and well, you know, all over the place. Read More
