A while ago now, luke pointed me to this site. They sell stuff that's been in movies and on tv. I want the matrix sunglasses.

Sally wins the "friends with weird names competition". She knows someone called Mercedes Pink. If you can beat that, please tell me.

The first thing you see when you visit a site is important. If people don't like what they see, they wont delve deeper into the site (not many of you get past the first page here :). This site has a great first page. Ignore the site itself (I have issues with the navigation), but admire the front page. That makes me want to see more. I'm working on something and i'm trying to do the same thing with the front page. Take a look and tell me what you think.

A few days ago (monday actually), we had 7.5 hours of downtime. At work. On our leased line. The one that serves our web sites. That sucked. Apparently the whole of NTLs UK network was down due to routing problems. Their primary system went down, their secondary system came up and fried the tenary system. Good show.

The coolest web design agency of the moment is Koiken. You should read an interview with co-founder, Gene Na, at pixeljunkie. How cool is that company?

Ally McBeal this week was really sad. I can't believe Billy died. And he told Ally he had loved her since he was 15. Like that's not going to screw her up for the rest of her life.

The cam portal at gblogs is now up (with me :). -censored-

Queen of the internet, zannah agrees with me that "Nothing of any merit can be created with a html editor". That girl truely is a genius :)

Ok. see you all later.
