Often I an asked why I an a muslim. For those of you who are/were genuinely interested, please do not be offended. For those of you who merely wished to attack my freedom of thought and my freedom of religion, well it's my choice, be offended or not as you please because frankly, I don't give a damn! …

Robot wars will never be the same again!!

Adam’s new spiderbot is scary enough to scare the life out of Arachnophobics.
I think Mik may have to rethink his robot army stratagem.

Back Before Blogging was Cool

There was a tv advert that often comes to my mind that talks about blogging. Ironically, I can never recall what product was been advertised, making it hard to find any reference to it. However, I have managed to locate a transcript of it.

“Blogging… blogging. On the Internet, Mikey set it up for me. Kids these days know everything. It’s like your own website where you can speak up, play, inspire. I know, I used to find the Internet intimidating too. But this is amazing. It’s… my space where I can just express myself and when you sit back and read what you’ve written its like, Wow! This is me. My creativity.”

The scene is of a woman, presumably a mother, around 30 years of age. She is standing in front of a fridge taking something out. She closes the fridge as she begins to talk, looking straight at the camera as if the viewer is standing there with her in her kitchen.

This was the first time I’d heard the term ‘blogging’ used. I had some vague notion that this activity existed, but since neither I nor anyone I knew had Internet access back then, I had no idea what it was all about.

The description of this ad is from memory as I can’t find a video clip of it anywhere. The transcript took me a while, but I found it here;
http://www.mikestopforth.com/2006/11/12/the-stork-margarine-blogging-advert/

Yes, this was not an ad for some new tech gadget. It wasn’t advertising any new Internet service or product. This was a margarine ad!
I often recall this ad, though I can never recall what the product being advertised was! :P
I never thought that I would one day publish my own blog. (well, I type and you read. It counts)

This for you Mik!

:P

How to install striata-reader to a 64bit Crunchbang Waldorf system!

Banks these days think they rule the World! :irked:
(well, they do, but they could at least pretend to give a damn right?)
So all South African banks require their customers to install some crappy third party software in order to read emailed statements. This software is not part of any web standard, is not installed by default in any Operating System and comes without source code. :rolleyes: …
