Just to be Official about


Just to be Official about it, my web-presence has moved to this site: or if you want a direct link to my new blog, it can be found here: If you're wondering why, or you have any questions, you can direct them to my email link on my main page, or just post in my new forums here:

Need to put in pages


Need to put in pages for the parables of Subtitles and the Falling Beam.

I've spent most of the


I've spent most of the day figuring out how to use Movable Type, so that I don't have to rely on blogger anymore for my blogging needs. It'd be nice if I could save the entries here to the new blog, but I don't think I can be bothered. I'll probably just load all the entries into one page and then save that page for archiving. My new blog address should be active soon enough here. It's basically a subdomain of what will now be my permanent site presence, which is It looks pretty scruffy, but hopefully by the end of the week I'll know that bit more about CSS.

I'm a bit cheesed off


I'm a bit cheesed off at the fact that the "My Pictures" button on my keyboard (which I actually use to open Word) is being a bit flaky. I could return the keyboard and get a new one, but that would mean I would be sans keyboard for god knows how long. Ah well, this keyboard can go back to singapore then :D. I still wish I had managed to get the older kind of Natural keyboard, which I probably will, just out of pique, when I go back to the US. I have to step out and get some food now, since I've been too lazy to order from Tesco, and there is absolutely no food left in the house. Shall be back in time to watch the MTV movie awards on UK TV. Hoorah.

I've moved my site, not


I've moved my site, not that it's particularly finished, to who seemed to have the best free hosting I could find. They offer ftp access, which is really what I was looking for, and the responsiveness is pretty nice. The url on the left has changed to reflect this, and so have the redirected urls below. I'm still contemplating what content I could use for my opera-fanboy site, but I'll probably need a nice bunch of pictures of me surrounded by opera things (which I don't have), though I'm pretty sure I'll put up screenshots of my opera setup, and an idiosyncratic guide to the functions that I use the most. Maybe a tip of the day kind of thing. Maybe a little feature as well on Microsoft input hardware, which I keep going on about.

I suppose the reason why peishan would be less than happy with all this stuff that I've been writing about is because it's not the me that used to do English. Now that's it's over, I find myself happier at the fact that my work does not bleed into every single part of my mental existence - I'm not thinking about aesthetics, politics and marxism in everything I see around me, and I'm not trying to make meaning out of whatever I concieve around me. It's nice. I get to think about the world around me as it is, as just things. I quite revel in the fact that all I'm thinking about really is Vantec Heatsinks, whether the new 800MHZ FSB on the new Intel chips means that the Athlon XP is no longer that budget chip of choice, why my wireless mouse seems less than responsive at times. I've not become braindead, I've just not got to expend that kind of energy and be that engaged with thinking about things all the time. It's nice to be able live life in banality, at least for a while. I can concentrate on things that make me happy and things that I can do. It make me feel useful. So there.

Hmm... found a link on


Hmm... found a link on how to spam-proof your site, basically how to display an e-mail address on your site without spammers sucessfully scanning for it. I'll try it for a while and see if it works - and use my york address :D. Here it is.

I've actually gotten a number of redirect URL's now from Convenient, and happily, free. The would be and, all of which work with or without the www in front. Unfortunately, they all seem to cause scrolling problems in IE (not in Opera or Mozilla though) and you end up stuck in that frame...

Rather impressed by a pretty good (not to mention reasonably funny) article in the Inq today, it's about AI (Artificial Intelligence) and an automated vacuum cleaner. You can find it here.

So far this place seems


So far this place seems to have the plan that best suits my needs, I need to check a number of things, but they come highly recommended from here. And they have cheap domain registration. It's tempting. I'll sleep on it and see how. Have to wonder about domain name transfer as well in case I ever grow beyond what they offer (highly unlikely of course).

I'm thinking of purchasing a


I'm thinking of purchasing a domain name. the best that I've thought of so far is - a reference to something that stuck in my head from Hammett's The Maltese Falcon. obviously seems to already be taken, and to be honest I'm not even really sure how domain names work, and whether it'll be able to link to a non-paid hosting site. I should probably just take the plunge, considering how much cash I haemorrage anyway, but for the moment, while I'm checking things out, I suppose free is a good way to go. I suppose quite a few concerns are addressed here, along with pretty good suggestions, but we'll see. If I went with this, Movable type would become more of a way to go... I could even host a forum with phpbb, but the question would then be: for fuck?
