This last week I have tried using three interesting, new applications, and none of them work behind a web-proxy, and do not provide any interface that might let you configure them so they did. The people who write these things need to get out more and find out what the real world is like - it isn't as if it is even hard to do! (configuring a proxy I mean, not finding out about the real world)

I happened, entirely by accident, to see the National Lottery show on the BBC on Saturday night. What is that all about? Jason Donovan reading from an auto-cue and looking slightly scared and perplexed. Women with clipboards wearing white gloves? Picking machines and sets of balls, ridiculous statistics. I think it is some sort of hidden ritual of the Illuminati or something. It made no sense to me at all, not even slightly. Why is this nonsense not on a commercial station where it belongs?

I bought the latest copy of Nexus today, I always swear i will never buy it again, but I always seem to. This weeks gem of ignorance : "Unlike conventional silicon chips, it does not rely on conventional binary code, instead it uses the much more powerful alpha-numeric code" I'm slightly surprised it didn't use the even more powerful Bible Code!

Way too expensive and DRMed of course but there is some good material available. I'm not sure how this "burn 3 times thing works". I mean if I backup my entire machine, disconnect it from the network, burn the disc and then restore my machine surely I can do it all over again as many times as I want? Also why would you burn 3 times? Why not burn once and then copy n-times? Seems entirely bizarre to me.

One of our local radio stations is running an advert from the National Lottery suggesting that buying someone a scratchcard would make an ideal present. What sort of person buys someone a lottery scratchcard as a Xmas present?

On Friday I saw this student on campus who probably thought he was the coolest of the cool : skinny jeans skimpy jacket, little black hat in the back of his head. Very Pete Doherty, except that he had on a black and white stripe shirt and looked like a mime....Very Marcel Marceau.
