6:20 pm - dear heartinternet - die die die
so, my inbox stopped working this morning, and i use imap not pop3 so it can be constantly sync'd between mac and iphone.

this morning ... no inbox.

turns out i had an outstanding renewal payment, which heartinternet (my provider) had sent to an old account, but not to the account the inbox serves (this provider hooks one account to one domain name, and when i got through to customer services they could see all this, and it should be obvious where to send renewal emails to).

long story short (to get to the painful bit) i paid straight away and no email. contact customer services who tell me to click the various things to get to the bit where a new box is built and attached to the account. there's a throw away line at the bottom that says that the old mailbox doesn't exist anymore. what the fucking fuck? 2500 messages gone, just like that.

so, good bye heart internet and back to easily.co.uk where i have all the family's email accounts hosted.

and thankyou apple and time-machine. i clicked the buttons and got the messages back - and thankyou netgear and your raid5 NAS with all the disks in.

so no drama apart from all the huge aggro. and it's worth £11 to be free of that shitty ISP.

9:40 pm - fuck me - hard rock bagpipes

so, after this post, i went on a search for bag pipes to rattle my new audiophile cage.

guess what i found (does gleeful dance)?

I FOUND "bagrock to the masses" by the red hot chillie peppers. this includes fantastic tracks such as "We Will Rock You/Eye of The Tiger/The Clumsy Lover (Medley)" and "celtic bolero"

not only did i find it, but linnrecords have the studio master for download. if you want a more proletariat option, check out amazon's download

i am downloading it now, and well tell you later just how fantastic i am at procuring bagpipe music.

fuck me, i'm excited.

9:54 am - i have a new gadget
a few months ago, i bought myself a sony prs-505, also known as the e-reader.

to be quite frank, it's excellent. i bought it for going away to not have to carry around enough books to keep me entertained on holiday.

it came with a nice protective book jacket, but i found the first thing to do was take off the protective book-jackety thing, after marvelling at the magnetic clasp that holds it on.

the text is really easy to read, easy on the eye and it's as light as a paperback and lighter than most hardbacks. it honestly is as easy on the eye as paper, and the brighter the light, the clearer the ink. i find it sits nicely in the hands and unlike hardbacks when reading in bed, i have yet to let my fingers slip on the book so it comes down and smacks me in the face, which i do with most hardbacks.

the protocol for storing books is nice and condensed (LRF) and i've got over 200 on there now without denting the SD card.

the only slight frustration is sony have an ebook store in the states, and use waterstones in the UK. I find I can't buy ebooks from the states with a UK credit card, and waterstones don't seem to have quite the same range. not a problem - there's a happy industry out there putting books out on bit-torrent. so far, i've managed to get a lot of my books that i have on paper on to the reader now, and it's great to have the library in the pocket (it is pocket sized).

finally, DRM. it comes with some, and I just don't bother. I use calibre which is great at converting between book formats, convieniently losing the weak DRM on the way.

so, i love it. it's shiny and pocket-sized. pity it doesn't vibrate.

5:49 pm - theatre, vomit and "the bath of shame"
so, a fairly decent weekend all in.

i have been off on holiday from thursday through to tomorrow, and yesterday i started to feel the stress wash off me. today i feel nauseous, which means i expect, stress backlash. i seriously need to find a better way of working.

friday night, popsimon came over for a general monging, and by our standards we took it fairly easy.

we went to see dylan moran, who was hilarious. nearly as funny as the woman in the for in front of us who was pissed before she came in and then ate her lunch backwards over about five seats during the interval. we arrived back from interval drinks to smell the vomit and see her trying to clear it up in a drunken way. her husband/partner then arrived and tried to clean some of it out of her hair before leading her away. the fact that he was being considerate and not angry (whilst he looked sober) meant he was probably going to try and shag her later, piquant odour, crusty hair and all.

then back to harrogate for curry and drinks.

sunday involved taking the bath of shame to the tip. i say bath of shame, more for it's contents than the fact that the bath had done anything shameful. the bath itself just needed tipping.

due to h and i missing the recycling pickup for a number of weeks, we had a lot of bottles that needed disposing of. so, popsimon and i filled the bath with all the bottles and took it to the tip.

uD, popsimon and the bath of shameCollapse )

11:26 pm - a new drink
due to some residue in a glass from a minute ago, I accidentally invented a new drink, which I shall name a gaki and tonic, or maybe rin and T

The best thing about the drink is how it satisfies all the food groups. "How?" I hear you ask...

Well, if you end up with a mixture of raki, gin and tonic in a glass, you get aniseed, alcohol, juniper berries, quinine and water.

Who could ask for more? The obligatory ice means one can chew it as well.

For baldowl, I'm not drunk.

This weekend we have friends over, when i expect to fully tie one off though.

I have a drunken tongue. Don't ask. For baldowl it is important to note the rest of me hasn't caught up.

8:36 pm - funeraling - my new idea for a hobby
apparently every year, thousands of people die and are buried by their local councils and there is no one there to witness the funeral.

i propose funeraling as the answer. one could either go individually or as a group as a solemn witness to a life passing, or go along for a laugh dressed as zombie-clowns to take part in the funeral.

this opens up endless possibilities for inventing eulogies when the only people at the service would be a priest and a professional mourner. and 20 zombie-clowns getting pissed.

what else?

7:24 pm - thoughts on standards in public life
i've been thinking about standards, and specifically, is there an act of depravity after which one just shrugs ones shoulders and after which any other act has no impact?

would you like to know how i wondered about this? i thought you would. lets just say the order was:

shagging sarah palin begets shagging on the still-warm carcass of a recently killed moose begets moose entrail bondage.

at what point would the mental shrug appear? can you think where to take this next? i suppose there's nasal flossing with ligaments, but that could lead to a involuntary septumectomy.

i miss podcastng with popsimon - that's probably the more appropriate forum to explore this.

I am not drunk. yet. I intend to be though. and them tomorrow i need to get an eye-test to see if i need glasses.

10:49 am - politically, you know when you've arrived when...
hustler makes a video of you. I present (safe for work) "nailin - palin".

popsimon gets the credit.

now, i want to see one where jaquie smith does gordon brown up the gumpy with a barbed-wire loofer.

10:24 am - start your day the purile way
so, #1 comes into the room wearing his dressing gown - flashes himself around the place doing a vigorous and obscene dance and gleefully announces "i bet the you've been framed people would have to put an exclamation mark over my widge if they had a film of that!" and runs off.

the day has more or less run on those grounds since 9am.

7:36 pm - in conversation with #2
#2: would you like an eye on the back on your head so you can see all around?
uD: That would be cool - chameleons can see all around them because their eyes are kind of on stalks and they can turn them around [uses hands to mime chameleon eye movements]
#2: cooooool. Can they play pat-a-cake with their eyes? Could their eyes kiss and get married?

it was by this point that all collapsed into giggles.
