Dance like nobody’s watching

I read the above with vague memories of a song flitting in and out of my head. Then I realised what it was, Baz Luhrmann's "Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen" - the lyrics of which are truly…

"If you want, you can touch me..."

Dunstan, there's no wonder you're a gay magnet when you post this sort of thing! :-)

Cheep cheep, baaaa

"animal graffiti"!!! Good one Jon, I like it. I'm still waiting to see my first sheep with "Gouranga" spray painted on it.

Dunstan, photographs of the flowers and funghi are stunning. Well done.

Page loads seem to be a little quicker Dunstan - that's a real win.

Putting your underwear on backwards

"I must have been walking around with back-to-front knickers on for about eighteen hours"

Only 18 hours - that's no way to treat underwear. You're supposed to wear them for months. Did you never…

Retro: Everyone likes Cox

Ha, ha that's totally brilliant, I'm amazed this didn't get picked up during proof-reading or whatever though.

Good laugh anyway.

Snow, by torchlight

Dunstan they are brilliant images. Not only do you have the technical know-how, but you also have a fantastic imagination. I would never have even conceived of such images, let alone been able to…

Re-designing comment forms

The forced preview prevents bots from spamming the comments system.

[view in situ]

I did something similar (almost) with the Urban Mainframe. The comments system is open to all users but takes advantage of the details stored in the database for registered users.

"When we had an empire..." - good God man (replace with politically-correct deity of your choice), how can you write this? Don't you know your history? There never was an empire, Britain was never…

Firefox errors and Firebird extensions

Thank you Margaret. Everything seems to be ticking along nicely now. Cheers.

Hmmm... Seems a little bit flakey to me, surprisingly not as stable as Firebird.

I have scrollbars disappearing, back and next controls disabled, printing very screwed up. Seems very reluctant…

Thank you Nis. Somehow I didn't think to look around the Mozilla website for mirrors?!?!!

Downloading now...

[view in situ]

Dunstan you lucky b%$*!&d, you managed to download Firefox. It seems to be virtually impossible to get at the moment due to server load. Does anyone know of any mirrors?

Also, the issue you are…

Grrr, hear me roar

I don't know if any of you guys caught it but there was a fascinating article in the Daily Mail the other day...

It seems that in a wildlife reserve (in Korea IIRC), a lion and tiger have mated…

Poppy and the deer

Oh boy, that brings back memories. When I was a kid we had a beagle (and regularly conducted our own missions to Mars). Beagles are great dogs, but they need frequent exercise, so I had to walk her…

A visual guide to navigating blog comments

A very interesting post with some insightful comments.

I too am working to add a useful, easy-to-comprehend comments system on my website. I think the "inspired by" idea is great and unique as…

His website looks remarkably similar to yours too. Imitation is the sincerist form of plagiarism eh?
