I hab a code

It's not the slight headache. It's not the completely fuzzy feeling that my brain is languishing in. It's not even the mountain of tissue paper I have on my desk right now.

It's the sniffing.

Thank god the 3 other people around me all wear headphones.

This is one of my favourite things

Watching a 14-month old baby sleep.

The Mail&Guardian reports that vice-president Dick Cheney brought a long-running feud with leading Democrats over his former company, Halliburton, to a foul-mouthed climax on the floor of the Senate, it emerged on Friday.

Cheney told Vermont's senator, Patrick Leahy to "f*ck yourself", after he apparently approached George Bush's number two for a chat.

Have chair, might survive

In a time of terrorism the humble office worker feels exposed, a reserve soldier in a global war. Ecco's designers equipped their simple-looking office chair with a fireproof hooded vest and much, much more.

Still, it's not an Aaron chair.

Pee-thru glass

From the outside it looks perfectly private, but once you're inside, you've gotta ask yourself: "Am I sure no-one can see me?"

The (.za) Facts

The CIA Factbook on South Africa shows a whole lot of interesting bits about my country.

Most interesting of all, though (well, to me at least), is this entry:

Radio broadcast stations:
AM 14, FM 347 (plus 243 repeaters), shortwave 1 (1998)
Television broadcast stations:
556 (plus 144 network repeaters) (1997)

Personal Video Blog

If you're interested in such devices as Tivo, ReplayTV and Sky+, then you definitely want to check out PVRBlog. I found this while searching for way for a friend of mine to upgrade his Sky+ hard drive.

How can this happen?

Especially since ActionX shows no sign of Enterprise 3 starting.

Hiding stuff

The best way to hide your personal apple juice supply in the fridge at work, is to label it "urine sample - don't touch".

Need some non-smutty writing done? Get Ansie to do it right away!

I think it's such a cool name for a company.

Overheard on the Hivemind

This must be the best piece of land ever up for sale:


Now, anyone have 1.5 million US lying around?

Maybe. What are you willing to do to get it?

Send you a picture of me?

Hmm.. You're new to this cult stuff right?

How, uh, fabulous are you?

Take this quiz (choose Greater London as your county if you're outside the UK).


Step back, you've gone too far. It's one thing getting in touch with your feminine side, but quite another to have girls thinking of you as 'just a friend'. You need to get in touch with your masculine side again.

Don't forget to return on Friday 28th May to take part 2 of the test.

Then tune into part two of How Gay Are You? on Sky One, Sunday 30th May at 10pm.

After yesterday's entry, I had this link recommended to me.

What you don't want to know

Home DivX

I've resisted the DivX format for a while now, for a number of reasons. One, it's not completely quality of the original DVD, and two, it's so, uh, ungainly to have a PC hooked up to your TV. I'm not even going to elaborate on how one cannot possibly watch entire movies on a monitor.

But DivX is now becoming more seductive. For example, Cirrus Logic is enabling low-end DVD players with DivX, and Kiss Technology has a stunning DivX/DVD/all format player that includes a hardrive, PVR-style.

And if that's not enough, you can capture your own TV, in real-time, to DivX.

Now, if we could start to see digital TV broadcasts (cable and satellite) in DivX, that would be great.

Loving what you do

Yes, I am.

You know that feeling you get when you're involved with something great? I've got that feeling right now.

You'll be able to get that same feeling 5 September 2004.

Right. Where was I?

Ah, back. The reason for the extended paralysis of The Rites was due to an overzealous WebMarshall filter somewhere along the lines. It deemed The Rites of less than perfect moral values.
