Twatt in the Shetland Islands

The war on terror - to be continued...

.
America always claims to be so big on ridding the world of evil, deluded tyrants who interfere with other countries affairs, possess dangerous ideas and even more dangerous stocks of weapons of mass destruction.

What a pity, then, that they have just re-elected one of them for another four years.

So the Countryside Alliance have finally shown themselves up for the violent, selfish, antagonistic and arrogant yobs that they are, with the inbred toffs and demented yokels blocking the M25 with horseboxes, rioting with Police in Westminster and breaching the House of Commons.

Isn't it funny how these bloodthirsty morons are the first people who run crying to the nearest television camera as soon as the Police try to knock some well-earned sense into their heads. It's not quite so much fun when it is your own blood dripping down your clothes, is it?

The headline in The Guardian today sums it up nicely - underneath a big picture of a fox looking straight at the camera it simply reads "Thank You!".

TECHIES - show me the power of your knowledge...

.

Calling all you I.T. bods and bodesses:



1) Can any of you recommend a decent Firewall and Anti Virus software package that doesn't...
a) ...f**k up everything else on your computer </i>everytime</i> you download the latest weekly upgrade?
b) ...frequently bring your pc to a grinding halt because it automatically virus scans everything that is already on your computer everytime you open up an existing file or program?

Hint: the correct answer is certainly not Norton AntiVirus 2004


2) Do any of you techies know the answer to any I.T. question that does not involve the phrase "shut it down and reboot" or "reinstall everything"?


3) Can anyone recommend a good Registry Cleaner? Preferably one that checks with the user first before deleting any seemingly unused items that it finds?


Thanks :)

Day 3, the celebrations continue...

.
Firstly, many thanks to everyone who offered their best wishes yesterday, it was most appreciated.

Secondly, it seems that it is not just me who has several reasons to celebrate this week, it looks like a few of us have been touched by the hand of the Employment God or have other reasons to be cheerful, so:

<<< PUB >>>

When? Tonight from 19:30 onwards
Where? Man in the Moon, 42 Chalk Farm Road, Camden
Who? EVERYONE that can read this



For anyone that doesn't know, here is a map.

Spread the word!

Yay, go me!

So here's how it works: I spend a year working for Thames Trains as their press officer until I get right royally shafted and told "I am sorry we can't afford to pay your salary anymore, you'll have to go".

Then with a axe to grind the size of Reading, I get a six month contract at the Strategic Rail Authority. First assignment? "Do Thames Trains deserve to keep their train franchise?" No, of course they don't, the dodgy bastards, sack them! I decide, on a panel with a few other managers, that First Great Western would do a far better job and award them the new franchise. Then today, I get a phonecall from - guess who - First Great Western, asking whether I would like to come and work for them - and yes you've guessed it, doing exactly the same job but for more money, a free travel pass and I even got to dictate my own hours!!

RESULT!!!

Hurrah for nepotistic corruption within the rail industry!

But these damn tests always confuse natural arrogance and cynicism with "paranoia" and "schizoid" so I am not taking it too seriously. Or am I? Nurse, NURSE? Maybe it's because you all hate me, huh? Yeah, that's it....* bang *

Feel my hardcore, people...

It's amazing how much testosterone can emanate from within my scrawny feminine exterior after a sufficient imbibing of alcohol. Among the stranger discoveries of the weekend was my new found potential to become a world champion in "Freeze Arm", seeing off all the competition before finally having my bluff called by a determined _nick_ and eventually having to declare a truce after seven minutes of having both our arms submerged in a vat of ice cubes.

Apparently, I went to Slimelight afterwards - I remember the journey there but absolutely nothing until arriving home. In the process, I seem to have lost my coat, among other things, so _jon_ is it still in your kitchen? or bulletproofcat is it in the back of Stuart's car? It is a black cheap nasty faux-leather vegetarian leather jacket.


Thanks to _jon_ for organising Saturday and everyone else over the last three days (too many to list).

For _abby_, ninja_badger, Chris (tube) and anyone else who expressed interest in going, I can now confirm that Noisex are playing on Friday 25th, not Saturday 26th as I may have suggested yesterday. Further details are right here. B&B/hotels seem to be anywhere between £20 and £200 a night so we need to choose one between us if we are still going.

Anyone else fancy seeing Noisex's last ever [no, honestly we really mean it this time] and only UK gig this month. Bad news though is that it is in Bournemouth...
