Andrew Carlssin

The alleged ‘Time-Traveler’ busted for insider trading seems to be a popular search today.
As does the TV Quiz Trial halted for coughing. Ironic really. The trial of a British army major accused of cheating in the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” TV quiz with the help of a coughing accomplice was adjourned on Monday — because of an outbreak of coughing among the jury.

A nutter in his undies

Andrew Roxberry, 30, was naked apart from black underpants when he rampaged with a shovel ? causing ?75,000 worth of damage to store windows.

I’m not sure what is more grounds for calling him a nutter. Wandering around Cardiff in his briefs in March or smashing all the windows whilst on CCTV.

I want to believe him

In an email around work today the story of Andrew Carlssin who claims to be a time traveller
Allegedly in a bid for leniency, Carlssin has reportedly offered to divulge “historical facts” such as the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden and a cure for AIDS.
However, he refuses to reveal the location of the machine or discuss how it works, supposedly out of fear the technology could “fall into the wrong hands.
As Mark at work put it “… all they have to do is look for a DeLorean” or “.. wouldn’t another thing to ask him be ‘when will AOL make a profit?'”

Minor gripe

Well actually no it’s fairly major.
I love Mac OS X. I love the fact you can hide stuff with Apple H in every application and get back to a nice tidy clutter free desktop.
Oh no wait hold on. Let’s see. Why not make one piece of software ignore that and use Aplle H to do something else instead. Gah! and again I say Gah.
I hate Meeting Maker. Every day without fail I end up with some stupid pick group dialog because they decided to be different.

Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas, was awarded $780,000 by a jury of her peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running inside a furniture store.

I’ve just come back from a leaving lunch. One of my colleagues has grasped the bull by the horns and is moving to Italy. Although for him the future is all bright and breezy. For the rest of us work will continue on.
Luke eloquently puts into words how others just feel about friends leaving for foreign climes. We feel with you mate. We were sad when you left London for your return to Oz. We knew you would have a great time when you returned and all but for us it was same old same old.
I’ve had a fair few friends leave recently. Many for places they are unlikely to return from. I was the one leaving (albeit from only 3 weeks holiday) last time and yet the goodbyes at the airport where strained with emotions bubbling under the surface.
I think the sooner they make personal transporters the better. Then we could still meet up for beers that odd wednesday night for old times sake.
