Anti Spam

What a cool idea for identifying spam origins. [email protected].
I always use the site name or some other form of altered address. I noticed recetly for instance I was getting spam to one address I used only once over christmas last year. Unfortunately I discovered a friend had this address on their blog 🙁
I shall be using + in my site logins from now on though.
I recommend MailWasher [PC] or POPMonitor [Mac]

There’s Oil Six Feet Under Dallas

Tom has this theory that Six Feet Under is Dallas under any other name…
I kid you not. His reasoning behind this?

Tom: Two brothers
Tom: one is cool
Tom: one is not
Iain: LOL
Tom: one’s wife is a nightmare
Tom: from a dodgy family
Tom: they bicker about the family business
Tom: after the patriarch died
Tom: the mother is the stabilising force
Tom: the sister’s a pain in the arse who shags everything
Tom: tthere’s an evil company that they’re competing with
Tom: blah blah blah
Tom: and most significantly
Tom: we have an explanation for why JR was always so bitter and desperate to prop up his sexuality
Tom: because he was a big nellie.

I’l still be taping it on September 9th for all the people who don’t have E4 though.

Emotional Blackmail

I normally don’t talk about my family much on here. Today I am going to make an exception. I’m going to quote an email I received from my mum today. Granted it was to both my brother and I – so we can share the guilt equally no doubt.
Whilst asking us to call my Gran who is ill in hospital
“Come on now boys for me if anything happens to her you would regret not doing this now, Christmas is a long way off and she may not be here then.”

Moveable Type

Oh and did I mention MT is sexy as hell? Version 2.21 rocks – inspired me to think about another redesign, I think an homage to my new cube in there too.
If I ever get time to worry anout it I might turn the thoughts into actions.
If this weekend is anything to go by I’ll be lucky.
Saturday = write off due to hangover from excesses of friday night.
Sunday = hell of B&Q [an hour and a half getting slate tiles and stuff] and IKEA [briefly – in and out in 12 minutes amazingly] and Makro briefly [in and out in 5 minutes]
Monday = DIY hell – I want to pay a man to come and finish the jobs I have started and given up when it got difficult. Anyone know a nice man who can come help me out? Handy Andy where are you when I need you?


I grew increasingly disturbed by the current vodafone advertisents this evening whilst watching six feet under. With a tagline of ‘get the flirting over before you get home’ and images of what looks to be people having affairs or something. I’m not sure what kind of message they are portraying…

Oh and a very dark episode of six feet under this evening – good though. The new series appears to be only on E4 – good job I pay for Sky every month – E4 alone is worth it at the moment. What with the secret life of us, six feet under and… erm that’s it I guess.
