Delayed coverage from Wellington NZ


Archive for April, 2003


I’m planning my new site layout and being pulled in many different directions. To achieve what I want I have realised that I’m limited to quite a plain layout. I’m aware that CSS has a number of limitations at the moment, and it is frustrating when you encounter them. Some are not related so much to the spec but as to how IE interprets it. Other browsers are better of course, but only a relatively small group of enlightened surfers use them. I could just sod my principles and get the layout I want. At least I know that nearly anything will be better the current bodge job.

Good news for me – when I searched google today ol’ bucketfountain came up second. I had thought google had forsaken me.

I do like to be beside the sea-side

Ahh, the bracing English seaside…. Those buildings are two stories high! Even though the weather wasn’t the best it was still great to get out of London for a few days. Being from NZ I’ve always lived by the sea, and I’d forgotten how much I missed it. So even though the waves were breaking over the houses, it was great to be by the ocean again.

They arrested Dr Who!

A time traveller made $350 million on the stock market. It sort of reassured me to know that in 200 years there will be no drastic change in human nature. He claimed that he was going to make some money without attracting attention to himself and then got carried away. Yes, I nearly did the same thing when I went back to ’87….

I saw that this car down the road that had done a poo on the street. I guess it’s arsehole is at the front….

ha ha!

More oddness from the States….

Watching a program on the idiot box about the ‘real’ Blair Witch Project. It’s about a bunch of kids who abduct one of their friends and take her to the forest at knifepoint while they film the whole thing…. Was it a publicity stunt or were the kidnappers ever so slightly demented? Only in America.

blogging can be a drag….

11 days it took me to get an entry on the site for April… have been writing a lot on PAPER, it’s too much hassle putting stuff online, especially when the server hosting my site seems to be a 286. Yes, it’s as slow as fuck. Anyone know of a good and cheap Domino host?
