First day back from my annual holiday snowboarding and I’m back into the thick of IT drudgery..

I happened to need to check something out on the Sun website..

Notice anything funny about that ?

Hmm, seems it redirected to http://www.oracle.com – scary how quick that happened.

Reminds me of this..

Don’t understand ? read this





What is a browser ?

18 08 2009

I guess sometimes it’s good to remember that most people in the world don’t know (and don’t care) about the semantic differences in many areas of technology. Not knowing the difference between a browser and a search engine is (I guess) a little too subtle for most. I’d also imagine that if carried out in the UK the survey results would be very similar. Although the responses would be something along the lines of “Brawser ? s’google, innit mate ? av it large ‘n all dat”





Parking attendant..

8 06 2009

From yesterdays Bristol Evening Post:
Outside Bristol Zoo is the car park, with spaces for 150 cars and 8
coaches. It has been manned 6 days a week for 23 years by the same
charming and very polite car park attendant with the ticket machine.
The charges are £1. per car and £5. per coach.

On Monday 1 June, he did not turn up for work. Bristol Zoo management
phoned Bristol City Council to ask them to send a replacement parking
attendant.

The Council said “That car park is your responsibility.” The Zoo said
“The attendant was employed by the City Council… wasn’t he?” The
Council said “What attendant?”

Gone missing from his home is a man who has been taking daily the car
park fees amounting to about £400. per day for the last 23 years…!
total sum 2.9 million
