DVD Review: The Two Ronnies

Sunday, June 12th, 2005

Recently I’ve been revisiting some of the great comedy acts from the past. The Two Ronnies must stand around as one of the best. Some of the sketches really have you in fits of laughter. The combination of two of the greatest comedians Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett and their unmistakable brand of humour. Whilst […]

Loginfo – Apache Log Analysis Software

Friday, June 10th, 2005

As as webmaster it’s interesting to know what people are actually coming to your site for. I’ve tried a couple of web log analysis programs in the past, but these have either been too complex to setup (e.g. first put your log files into a DB an then pull the analysis from there), or lacking […]

Punishing Drivers

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

I’ve been reading the BBC’s report on the Government plans to charge Pay-as-you-go for drivers. the report is on the BBC News Website. Under the proposal road tax would be replaced by a charge based upon distance travelled, which would vary based upon how busy the road is and the time of day. The solution […]

DVD Review: The Crusades Knights of Christ

Tuesday, June 7th, 2005

It is fairly short which means it doesn’t get boring, but also means it […]

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Sunday, June 5th, 2005

I finally got around to seeing the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy yesterday. I’ve been so busy with other things that I hadn’t been able to see it until now. The local Odeon has already reduced the number of showings to one a day, but fortunately there is also a Showcase Cinema nearby that still […]

PDF Files

Saturday, June 4th, 2005

Several years ago I had a guide on my website about how to create PDF files for free. Fortunately that guide is not really needed anymore as it is not possible to convert office type documents to PDF using OpenOffice.org. However recently I’ve been asked to take a group of PDF documents and merge them […]

Kitchen Utensil or Deadly Weapon?

Thursday, June 2nd, 2005

An article in the British Medical Journel suggests that pointed kitchen knives should be banned to reduce the number of deaths as a result of stabbings. Full Article, or see the BBC News Report. Where will this end, will they ban glass bottles, and frying pans because of the risk of misuse? As far as […]
