Hmmm, didn't do much today. Again....
Went on #uk_goffs and for the first time actually recognised some names.... :)
Managed to get my Nokia 6210 to sync calendar and contacts with Outlook XP. Very nice. Also saw Outlook crash under Win2K for the first time. I guess that'll teach me not to run Trillian, An IRC window, LochJournal, IE6, ICQ, Kazaa OE, Outlook XP, Tiny Firewall, Nokia Phone Editor, Nokia Phone Sync and a CD ripper all at the same time on a hope;essly under specified machine. Especially when that machine is also the internet gateway for everyone else in the house... :)

Yawn. I probably shouldn't have stayed up all night watching all the Buffy episodes I've been downloading.
Definitely time for bed :)
And there should be a few more waiting for me when I wake up.....

Addendum:
I now have 3gb left on my 111gb harddrive... :-/

Liverpool 2008 European Capital of Culture???

How the devil could this scummy hell-hole possible manage to bribe it's way to being shortlisted for this?

I believe they're meant to share their culture with the rest of Europe.....
So we're gonna see tracksuits everywhere?
People on the continent will be able to nick a car in 15 econds flat?
It'll become fashionable to be a grumpy git who never smiles? (Oh hang on, I'm a goth I'm not meant to do that either. Cursed be this perkiness :))

I know that Liverpool had The Beatles, but that's a long time ago. And they didn't seem too unhappy about moving away....

All they have now is Football and Atomic Kitten. Maybe also a few other bands I don't know the names of, but I really can't think of anything that would warrant this blemish-on-the-planet to be shortlisted for this award. The only thing this town should get is a couple of small thermo nuclear detonations while I sit somewhere far away with a JD & Coke watching...
My navel fluff has a higher IQ than most of the people from this place.
Grrrrr
