When net-impaired friends come over it’s always nice to prove ‘I can find anything on line’. However, locating the lyrics of The Wurzel’s ‘Combine Harvester’ proved to be difficult. Anyone? Also… why is one’s connection always at its slowest when the same friends are looking over one’s shoulder? ‘It’s usually not this slow, really.’ Right, and my German Shepherd doesn’t usually bite.
Big changes might be ahead for Prol (irl), a bit like Matt‘s. To celebrate, we got out the dosh and treated ourselves to a new (s)watch. With their funny ‘internet time‘. This Swatch Access is the bulkiest watch I’ve ever had, with the most comfortable strap. It has a chip that can hold a digital ski pass. I don’t ski.
Riothero mentions the story of Griffin and Sabine calender. I have the related CD Rom, ‘Ceremony of Innocence’, produced by Real World multimedia. Pretty interactive pictures, intriguing, but buggy and slow. Having to listen to Isabella Rossellini’s laborious accent for hours proved too big a task for me. Their ‘EVE‘ cd-rom was a lot better.

Kym Newbery, an ASP engineer (no it’s not what you think it is) is a member of the Australian Antarctic division based at Mawson station. He will be based at Australian Antarctic Division Mawson Station from October 1999 to March 2001. When possible, he sends out e-mails which are posted on ‘Emails from Antarctica“. I hope he’s got a warm sleeping bag and mitts to keep him warm behind the comp!
Hey Hoppy! (And many happy returns of the URL)
The net makes me a winner. I never used to win anything. On line I’ve so far won a book from Penguin, a jacket from Net magazine and today I was surprised to find a Beamish t-shirt and cap in the post. Congratulations, you are one of twenty winners in the December Beamish Web Site draw… Think I’ll open a can of Guinness to celebrate!
Breaking news: after 13 years, Dutch band the Urban Dance Squad (who inspired Rage Against the Machine to form) are unexpectedly calling it quits. Last time I saw them was last year at the Free Tibet Festival in Amsterdam. They sounded as fresh as ever. Sad to see them go. Rude Boy on radio at 10 pm tonight : ‘Four people wanted to continue, the fifth one (guitarist Rene van Barneveld) didn’t. He has problems with press and the record industry.’ Not a happy split, it seems. But then it hardly ever is. This was their greatest (and quietest) moment for me. Want to hear?
