Stupid web tricks? Lunchscan. Prol had a nutty pie at work. Too sticky to scan.
On k10k.net I found this link to kabbalah.com. Informative sites that look good. Rare!
Saw ‘The World is not Enough‘ last night. Old fashioned Bond story. If they left out half the explosions and SFX, it would be a better movie. Critics moaned about Robert Carlisle, but I thought he made an evil baddie.
On the day I’m going to see the new James Bond film, I find out Q‘s no more.
Irish genius Cathal Coughlan (ex-Fatima Mansions, ex-Microdisney) will be releasing his new studio album “Black River Falls” (COOKCD126) through Cooking Vinyl in March 2000.

A few years back I visisted Newgrange and endured the tour listening to 50 Italians and their simultaneous translator. It kind of took away from the whole experience. Newgrange is a passage tomb from the Stone Age, part of the Brú na Bóinne complex in the Boyne Valley, Co. Meath. in Irealand. On the 21st of December each year the sun rises on the South-Eastern horizon in a direct line with the hollow ‘roof-box’ above the passage entrance. The first ray of sunlight penetrates and shines directly onto the chamber floor. As the sun rises higher in the sky the beam widens and the light illuminates the entire passage. If only builders were as smart these days!
We’re celebrating Christmas at work (actually, we’re having a Christmas market to fill our hampers). And because we’re nerds, we’ve put a cam on it: have a gander.
Talking work: my company’s still frontpage news and politicians are getting involved in all the fuss. Which fuss? Well, VARA is a publically funded tv and radio station and management is now looking into the possibility of going commercial. [ D ]
The Amsterdam Rijksmuseum just opened its 6000 page web site. But it appears to be down right now.
Not a big fan of Christmas, is Prol. But this year it’s really bad, with no time off but the Christmas weekend.
‘I know better exercise for a man’s lower back‘. (Sean Connery quip in one of the early Bond films… the one where he’s in a spa). See, you want it shaken, not stirred.
The end of the world is nigh! An optimistic series of reports by the otherwise lovely John Simpson.
Keep in touch with the Dutch: No flood today. An e-mail newsletter about the Netherlands. In English. For all you tulip lovin’, dope tuggin’, sex cravin’ maniacs. Just kidding!
Curse ‘m anyway.
This one has been around ages, but it’s still a good laugh. http://llanfairpwllgwyngyll gogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.co.uk/.

Tu aimes la musique, ou quoi? Refraichant! MPtrois. [ F ]
