Some body save the puppy's!

I have just been reading over at boing boing, how the crazy in Japan for smaller and smaller, and more unusual looking dogs is driving them to bread dogs that never should be bread, The dogs can be sold for up $10,000 for the more rarer ones, but the rear dogs are only bread by breading a pair. Then breading the farther form the first breading with the daughter produced by that breading and then again breading the same dog with his granddaughter.

The practice is causing all sorts of problems in the dogs as they are infect being inbreed for the sake of fashion. What's worse is that to days fad is tomorrow dust bin filling, lets face there is not exactly a lot of room in Japan, know for its tight living accommodation.

As far as I am concerned dog's as fashion accessories should not be done, if don't like your little black dress you stop wearing it, are you going to stop feeding your dog?

Driver Collector

How I wish this was around, all those many years ago it could have saved so much time and effort.

Driver Collector is a tool designed to find and collect installed windows drivers for the hardware you select on your PC. Once you tell it which type of drivers you want to collect, it will copy them to a specific folder. This can be very handy when preparing for a format and reinstall of Windows, especially when you or a client have since lost the computers driver disks.

Almost 70 years after George Orwell created the all-seeing dictator Big Brother in the novel ``1984,'' Britons are being watched as never before. About 4.2 million spy cameras film each citizen 300 times a day, and police have built the world's largest DNA database. Prime Minister Tony Blair said all Britons should carry biometric identification cards to help fight the war on terror.

Chronic Of Narnia

O and why not write and tell you MP you don't want them ether.

Tuesday, December 05, 2006


I have just watched an excellent program on BBC 1 about the internet and the future of the world and how though the internet information will be disseminated and that the age of broadcast technology was actual blip upon the radar and wont really be seen again.

It looked at word of mouth and how thought word of mouth new media will be distributed, it got me thinking how everything I do on the net was American, all the blogs I read are written by Americans, all he pod casts are made by Americans and so on and so on.

It got me to thinking why do I have such a big disconnect, I could not name one UK web site other than the register. Simple I guess its that in the past there simple hasn't been any UK web sites worth visiting we just seam to be so far behind the times.

I mean take the BBC web site it seams to publish less and lessa cutal news all the time, and jsut seams to take the govermants poitn of view at all times it has turned in to the goverments monkey.

O well i am sure I could go on and on and on but i wont.

September 26, 2006
The Ouran Anime is officially finished. That's right, people. No more weekly Ouran fix.
There has been no news of a second season and to be perfectly honest, I don't think there will be. Perhaps in the far, far, far future, but definitely not anytime soon. The anime caught up with some of the most recent manga chapters, and Hatori-sensei does not have enough content for an entire second season anyway.
So NO - there will not be a second season (not yet anyway). Please don't get your hopes up on seeing something anytime soon.
But don't be too sad! There's still the manga! And the manga is ♥. It's currently ongoing with no end in sight (yet). So don't despair! Ouran still lives on in its original form!
But if you want to know - yes, my heart is breaking too.

I have just watched the last ep of, Ouran High School Host Club and now I am depressed such a good series.

If you have never seen Ouran High School Host Club its well worth a watch you dont know what your mising!

"I made a song. I own it. How come, when I wirelessly send it to a girl I want to impress, the song has 3 days/3 plays?" Good question. There currently isn't a way to sniff out what you are sending, so we wrap it all up in DRM. We can’t tell if you are sending a song from a known band or your own home recording so we default to the safety of encoding. And besides, she'll come see you three days later. . .

Zune is dead before it even gets off the ground, as talked about here, Zune’s Big Innovation: Viral DRM zune is bacically going to brake the law to protect big bissness, what a load of crap any one who buys one of these things needs their head examning.

Porn Backlash begins

Why is it in this day an age that if you lose a child it suddenly becomes your right to change the laws of this country if you can get enough board house wife's to sign a bit of paper?

A mother whose daughter died at the hands of a man obsessed with violent internet porn has won her fight for a ban on possessing such images.

The government has announced plans to make the possession of violent porn punishable by three years in jail.
because this is going to make us so more safer, not!

This is yet another nee jerk reaction to a problem that does not exist, How is stopping any one from looking at S&M porn going to stop those who would and should be in a mental asylum if not for the fact that the government has cut funding so much that we are now stuck with care in the community.

You only have to read the governments own consultation to see that out of 313 people who where questioned 223 thought the new law was a bad idea.

Their report says about 50,000 people signed a petition asking for these laws. Of those, 90 responded to the consultation in favor, ie excluding organizations - such as GCHQ - who submitted a response. Yet 223 individuals responded against. That suggests a large number of people are privately against the proposals. So this might not be a wise political move for a Government already under broad attack for dismantling civil liberties.
Even the BBC is having to defend its self after being inundated with so many messages against this law that the editors of the Ten o'clock news has had to comment on the official BBC blog.

Out of 71 comments the majority think this law is a bad idea, apart from Liz Longhurst, and here 50k army (most of which probably only signed up because they where ambushed on the street and signed out of pity or guilt, after all why do you sign any thing in the street?) No one thinks this is a good idea.

I have already emailed my MP using I love this site and use it to talk to any of my elected representatives any time I have a problem with he way the country's run, and the best bit is they have written back 100% of the time.

So stopping letting our government get more and more detached from the majority while the vocal minority takes over!

Go and let them know how crap this law is.

Around the World in 23 clicks

Technophilia has a great list up called "Around the World in 23 clicks" Some of the site's on it are not for ever one. Two I have found and have started to use,

  • Last.FM, Is way to share you play list's live over the internet as you listen to find new musci based on what your listening to, not to sure if like the idea of every thing I play in winamp showing up in a list Aka porn, but I am willing to give it a go for the time beeing and see how it works.
  • netvibes, Is my new home page, I use atm, but tbh I only use becsue nothing better has been around, and I have used the net for over 12 years now. I have yet to find any thing I would actualy use.
    Even with google as my home page I still use the google serch tool bar in Firefox rather than the one on the webage, so its not like I am using it.

Ahree lee

I love this its such a cool idea

Starting in November of 2001, I have been taking a picture of myself every day and I haven't stopped yet. Me was screened at a number of festivals in 2003 and 2004, including L.A. Shorts Fest, the Silver Lake Film Festival in Los Angeles, and Film Fest New Haven, where it won audience and jury awards. Music by Nathan Melsted.

Air Rage

I am not even going to comment I am just going to point you in the right direction.


The inner geek in me loves this idea, But I dont know if would ever take off in the uk,

It is a system, currently in prototype state, that allows anyone to have their own radio station, broadcasted among wirelessly capable devices, some in cars, in an ad-hoc wireless network. The system can become aware of individual preferences and is able to choose songs and podcasts that people want to hear, on their own devices and car stereos and in devices and car stereos around them.

WiFi router with BitTorrent

The ASUS WL-700gE is a WiFi router. The usual stuff, nowadays. But it is the perfect companion of die-hard file-sharers.

Why? Because the router comes with a 160GB hard drive AND a BitTorrent client. (via p2pnet)

Such a system has two main advantages. First: It keeps downloading big files, podcasts and movies while the PC is switched off.

Second: Chunks of files come to your router and are stored into the hard drive, meaning they don’t need to be transmitted via airwaves to your computer. The WiFi LAN speed should thus be higher, increasing the audio quality and the quality of service of VoIP calls.

I want one cool or what, I have to have my pc in bed room and there is no way I could sleep with it on of a night, this would suit me perfectly.

Democracy Player / Diggnation

I have had Democracy player for a while now, but did not really start using it till the new version came out and you could chosse where to save the videos and not just be stuck saving them on your C: drive.

Its a great program since using it I have stopped watching TV alltogether! Thou to be fair all I have watched is the 57 eps of Diggnation at 30 mins each its take up some time, Diggnation rocks!

Diggnation is based of Digg also well worth a look, If you have not seen or heard off it you have to go check it out.

There is however litrally hundreds of channels on Democracy player, if you want to watch it there is some one out there making it.

What worse is he is already giving the cash away as prize's to try and get people to link to him on the condition that some one actual pays him the 12 mil. I feel sorry for any one stupid enuth to get sucked in to that, never mind any one stupid enuth to pay him 12 mil for that domain, but saying that if you got a spare 12 mil lieying around and any old domain will do......

London Motor Show

I Just got back from the London Motor show at Excel, tbh it was poor, compared to when its been at the NEC, I relies Birmingham does not have the same international cache as London, but the show was so poor in London it was hardly worth putting on.

Never mind the fact that placing the show in London puts it an extra 300 miles from me, or that to get there you have to go by train so have to book everything 5 to 6 weeks in advance so it only cost £12 rather than £120.

It take's real planning to be able to go to the London show and two days, at least with Birmingham you could drive down in the morning and drive home again for £50 for the lot of you, not £60 each London now does.

The stands where smaller and the show poorer only two cars compared to the 30 or 40 that where in the live action show at the NEC.

You can view the pics of the trip here.

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

After showing a few peeps the Boten Anna video, they came back with the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain playing Nirvana's teen spirit.

It would be a far worse world if I kept this to my self so enjoy, and go out and spread the love.

Lego GumGun

I remember when I was a kid and used to build stuff out of lego, Now I made my fair share of cool space ships and two hulled planes and such (there sill intact some where in a box in the loft), But I dont think I ever made anythign as cool as this.

Boten Anna

I love Krazy Euroe tunes, and this one has to be my new Fav, The orignal video is a bit poo.

But personnly my Fav has to be the one below. I just love the guy in the red T-shirt he is haveing so much fun with it!

The best bit is that you can Dl the mp3 for free right off the Boten Anna web site, you can also see all the other Video remixs peeps have done.

Thanks to boing boing for the link.

Tsubasa Chronicles

I found the Tsubasa Chronicles completey by accident on one of my go mad follow every link kind of days (that used to be every day but now not so much), Bascially there was such an up roar about the ending of Cardcaptor Sakura from CLAMP.

This new manga series by CLAMP has an interesting plot of its own, but it also has many references to other CLAMP characters from previous works; a type of alternate universe story. Examples of crossover characters include Mokona & Rayearth from Magic Knight Rayearth, Chii from Chobits, and Sakura, Syaoran, Touya, Yukito, and Tomoyo from Cardcaptor Sakura. (One large note to keep in mind: This is NOT a sequel to Cardcaptor Sakura)

Some chapters cross over with chapters from XXXHolic. CCS characters look older, but the resemblances are still there. Sakura is a princess of a country, while Syaoran is the son of the late archaeologist Fujitaka. Touya rules as king of the country, and Yukito is the priest. Syaoran is the "chosen one" though, while Sakura has her own secret, magical powers. They are unaware of the trouble that will soon befall the two though...

I love this show, and the best bit is that its avaible on YouTube!

I love Fye, in so many anime these days the lead chars talk and talk and talk about them selfs to the point that you knew them better than your mum and dad. Its nice not to know everythign about them int he first 2 eps.

You just have to check out this guy's work over on ping mag.

While you at it have a look at the paper robots they rock!

Ping mag has g8 pod cast to, thou most of them tend to be presentations in Japanese with two translators explaining what's going on. Unless your really in to your Art and design, you may find them a bit heavy.

I find the pauses in translation infuriating, just because they make every thing sound so good I want to know what their are talking about.

The Cow and the Spoon

Hey, diddle, diddle!
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

ok so I was talking about this to a dutch man, and I serched the net for a copy for him and every copy had the word sport.

Now when i was a kid I always remeber the line beeing "To see such funt" I am i wong or is it jsut "sport" in the U.S.A?

(God that post so needed editing I shud really read the crap I type more often.)

God it seems so long ago that I signed up for these crazy things, they may work in the us, but here in the UK the hopes you have to jump thought are just to much for most.

But after a year I have and over 100 signed ups under me, finaly 5 people have completed the offers, and I have been able to claim my Ipod.

Now all I have to do is wait 30 days, and we will see weather one comes up or not. If one ever turns up I will be sure to let you all know.

Dutch Tub

I love the Dutch Tub, Its just one of those products that scream's, you must buy me!

The Dutch tub is basically a hot tub that work's, by starting a fire in the spiral at the side.
This heats the water, connected at the top and the bottom of the tub, the cold water is drawn in the bottom and the hot water flows out the top.

You can even add a barbecue to the fire and cook while your in the tub or waiting for it to heat up.

The tub has a handy Lid to let you super heat it, with a bar area on the side and a bottle holder for your wine what more could you ask for?

It comes in, Light blue, Pigeon blue, Ocean green, Reed green, Dark grey, Tub orange Above, and has to be my fav colour.

Now for the very hard bump back down to earth, the £3,030.50 price tag means that its not exactly cheap, but I am sure its worth every penny.

You Tube

You tube is a great TV web site where you can watch TV as flash movies, Like the internet it has its one big problem of unless you know what you want it can be a little hard to find any thing.

Being one of those people who likes every thing on a plate in front of me, the search can bring up a little to much, but hay its free, so its not like I can complain.

Best of all you can find the new channel 4 show the It crowd on it, So you can watch it in work :).

It Crowd

I know I probably link to Boing Boing far more often than any one should, But there just so good at what they do one can not help, ones self.

If you love the IT crowd, thou why they could have not just called it the I.T crowd, must be some sort of witty southern irony.

Any way you can Dl this Off the Channel 4 web site, or if you want to keep it and watch it again and again, you get the torrents off boing boing, well linked to from them, and the eps are on the net the week before they are on TV :)

At least channel 4 is trying something new, I will give them credit for that but crippling the eps so you can not save them is stupid cos all it means is that people go round them and their crappy software.

It's WAR!

Chav's! V The Goths, (who would have thought you could find such interesting stuff while searching for porn on google images) Agenda Inc has picked up this great bit, about the Chav's and Goths of Peterborough.

unfortunately it seams the goths are destined to lose these dawn battles, as by there very nature the Goths are allergic to sun light and only come out at night.

But Mr Mayes admits there is one small problem: most of the goths were so laid-back they couldn't get up in time for the war games. Six cried off yesterday morning. "We've got more chavs than we have goths because they couldn't get out of bed," he said. "They've probably been smoking too much pot."

LOL, This so for fills that old British stereo type of stop war at 4pm for tea, "Dude can we delay the war till like 9, We where up all night smoking some dope".

(I would have got you a better pic, but surprisingly I could not find a pic of goths and chavs in the same place at the same time, wonder why?)

Bizzar Russian art

Ok so I have no clue as to what to call this? All I know it is very Russian, The image gallery is here, The actual site is here, other than I like it I don't know what else there is say.

Through A Glass

I saw this on BoingBoing and just had to share, This is great mash up of fight club, to make it look like a love story.

so many films these days are spind all out of proportion and this just takes it to the next level, after all, all footage used is in film footage.

Demonic Tots

The Gallery of Dominic Tot's Is well disturbing, TBh the one shown here looks almost sexual on the web page, maybe its the shade of green they use, but mean of the pics take on a deferent property on that sight, then when viewed alone.

I suspect that the green is more demonic than any of the children.

Late Night Insombnia

I been up all night swapping flash links with people on eve, and thought I would give you two, for something to do.

Ninja training camp is the sort of thing we all wish are parents had the forsite to send us to, I admit the video is a bit old, I will admit I have had the file for over a year now, but this one up on google videos seems to have an extra seen in it or two, (the was no guy showing his arse in mine).

The on thing I did notice is that even to dl free videos google forces you to use there player, I wonder why?

2nd something for all you heavy death black metal freaks from Norway.

Sound of 2006

Lets get the traditional crap out the way, I wish you a merry Christmas and happy new year how ever lat it is.

Now to the fun part like many of you I got an ipod fro chirmbo (or the shopping holiday), So I poped on to the web to see what's hot and what's not, The BBC has how ever already done this for me :)

After all the hipe on the net I was expecting to like the much hiped "Clap your hands say yeah", but they not really for me.

Much more interesting how ever is "Guillemots" who seem to get quirky just right. One to watch might just be "The automatic" The rest just did not do it for me, but you can make up your own minds, the BBC is hosting tracks by each artist for you to hear.
