No More Internet

I’m not usually a massive fan of South Park but I have to say this episode about there being no more internet tickled me somewhat. The hilarity of the concept was one thing, but the sheer dependency on the service shown by the characters added a whole new level of amusement as of course did the concept that the internet can just shut down universally and only originates from one location. RouterTech fans will note that “The Internet” appears to be a large Linksys wireless router with the tell-tale flashing ADSL light that frequently occurs when ADSL sync cannot be acheived. As the saying always goes “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”

Programming and sex

As I was browsing my news feeds this morning I stumbled accross a blog post that someone had linked to. Its a rather amusing article about which programming language gets you the most sex. If you’re a programmer I’m sure this will make you chuckle.

Skiing down an escalator

I can across this hilarious video in the course of me trawling the internet and just had to share it with everyone. I’m not quite sure how the stuntman managed to do this (or indeed avoid getting caught in the process), but it was certainly worth the effort! Enjoy folks ๐Ÿ™‚

When I’m cleaning windows

Ages ago I caught a snippet of a song over the radio. It was a comedy song, clearly taken from some kind of television show, and all I knew was it was something to do with cleaning windows. By complete chance I came accross a link on Google to a YouTube video of the very song with the TV clip included! Hell of a find in my humble opinion and as its pretty funny I thought I’d share it with you all.

WordPress song

I was checking my RSS feeds this morning and I noticed a really amusing song about WordPress has been posted up on the net. If you’re a techie, use WordPress for your blog or just want a chuckle, be sure to give it a listen!

Microsoft made fools of… again

A spate of great amusement hit the web this afternoon when some genius with a lot of time on their hands announced the release of Microsoft Firefox 2007. It was reported in an article on the register which shows how well they managed to fool people.

The thing about this is that its not serious, its a joke, and one that is made at Microsoft’s expense all the way. You can see the hilarious feature list here so you can see just why its so funny. Kudos to all involved in this, its truly hilarious ๐Ÿ˜€

No uptime

Found this hillarious site about web hosting horrors. Anyone who has a site or indeed is a webhost themselves will enjoy having a chuckle at this one. Link

Software Advice


A few short years ago, I upgraded from DrinkingMates 4.2 to Girlfriend 1.0 which I had been told for years wouldn’t give me any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5 and Playboy 6.9. Successive versions of Girlfriend 1.0 proved no better. I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually, I tried to run the new Girlfriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to my hardware. I eventually upgraded to Fiancรฉ 1.0 only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0.

Whilst Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does at least come bundled initially with FreeSxPlus and CleanHouse 2005. BEWARE! These programmes are Demo’s only and after one year normally will function at a reduced slower rate or just freeze up completely. I have also found that Wife 1.0 could be very unstable and extremely costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0’s memory and could not be deleted. They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them. Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter and can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Whinge2.0. Worse still, these latter products have no Help files and I have to try and guess what the problem is.

Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly requiring AdobeShoeShop, HandbagSearcher and HairstyleExpress, all of which need to be reinstalled every other week. Also when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Audi TT hard drive it often crashes. Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw which can’t be turned off.

I’ve recently been tempted to install Mistress 2005 but there could be problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects Mistress 2005 it tends to revert to your SecureSocketLayer items (like banks) and delete all of your money before uninstalling itself.

Thanks to Steve on RouterTech for this little gem ๐Ÿ˜‰

Uplighter madness

You know the students are back in Leeds when…… you see a group of people in the middle of the night making haste away from campus towards Hyde park carrying two 8 foot tall uplighters and waving them at passers by. We all know that student houses can be short of a few of lifes little comforts, but most do have light fittings. It certainly makes a change from seeing people steal traffic cones anyway!
