This ‘Have Your Say’ should put to rest any worries anybody might have that the BBC site is fair, unbiased, and free from attack. The most recommended opinions on whether to close Guantanamo are from people saying that it’s a terrible mistake, Obama is misguided, and Europeans are fools. And these have received the most […]

Yeah, so like, in The Sound Of Music, the character of Liesl is played by a 22 year old, who imagines herself to be sixteen, going on seventeen… Like, plausible much? Then her boyfriend Rolf is played by a 21 year old, and explains that being a year older than Liesl, he is better able […]

As it stood a couple of minutes ago, one of the front page stories was “Shares up as confidence returns”, in which they described how “the Dow Jones rose 1.3%”. That’s great, but they also have live market data on the front page, […]

Right.. So first you suspend the domain (without warning) because a Cron job is hurting the servers too much. So I remove the job. Then you suspend the domain (again without warning) because the traffic levels are too high and it’s hammering the CPU power of the server because of database hits. So I remove […]

There’s something fundamentally wrong with the American psyche when it comes to taking important things seriously.. “She says it like it is”“I think she has strong moral values”“She’s doing great things, supporting her church and supporting her family” Does any of this really qualify her for anything?

There is a significant difference between different train lines’ ideas of what is “standard” and what it “first” class. Sitting in a Southwest Trains carriage, they’re going for the approach of giving people minimal leg room, and fitting in up to five people per “row”. This is their idea of “standard”, and if you upgrade […]
