Tagging is useless

Totally off topic here but I feel like a bit of a belated rant. This has been on my mind for a long time now. What is all this community service, supervision and tagging they are handing out in the courts instead of proper sentences? It doesn’t work! Can’t they see that, are they totally blind! I’d like to quote a few but maybe that’s not a great thing to do, but you’ve all seen these ridiculous sentences in the news. I know a lot of it has to with age, but even as a mother I have no sympathy […]

Find the difference – iphone/itouch app.

Game Review I just have to tell you about this new iphone application by @Zaam –http://i.zaamit.com/ its called Find The Difference. You know the sort of thing, you have two almost identical pictures in which you touch the screen where the difference is.  As soon as I started playing I was addicted, as you have to keep trying until you complete the level or round and some of them are quite challenging. Levels Easy – which isn’t timed, so its good to start with this to get used to it. Medium – which you have 60 seconds to find 4 differences. […]

The internet is for porn?

Two very bizarre sites have appeared on the internet in the last year. which are both very unsettling; two new ways to get lucky on the internet. They are poorly labelled as Social networking sites or chat forums, which gives Social networking a whole new meaning.    Someone once said that “The internet is for porn”   I feel that these sites are worse than your standard porn sites, they degrade the internet and disgraces us as users. We are worth more than this.   Our own personal privacy obviously isn’t worth anything if this leading networking site is anything to go by – See here. Is this the future of […]

Love on the Net

We all know the film “You’ve Got Mail”  its one of my favourites – about how two people who fell in love on the internet, although fraught with problems, they lived happily ever after. What do I know? That’s what we all want isn’t it – our own happy-ever-after? Well it does seem that you can find it on the internet. I admit that I’m no love guru but I do know a bit about it 🙂  and I also know people who met on the internet and years later are still together, and I have been social networking online […]

Dropbox – A good use of cloud computing.

When @Lucasblack mentioned on Twitter what he was doing with Dropbox I was immediately excited (it doesn’t take much I know) and I downloaded it instantly. What is Dropbox In case you don’t know yet, (Its been around since 2007 and I admit that I missed it) Dropbox is a file hosting service which uses cloud computing so that you can store and share files on the internet. In simple terms, you never have to remember your memory key/stick USB drive again, you just save your files here and have instant access to them where ever you have a Dropbox […]

Top Geek Films

Top Geek Films  Due to the rubbish that they drone out of the TV day after day I tend not to bother much with TV and prefer to watch a few DVD’s a week, its a pleasant way to chill away from the PC.  I like to watch comedies or what I have found out to be Geek type films. And even though I mentioned before that I believe myself to be a bit of a Geek, http://bit.ly/cQDM9k I do not like the particular style sci-fi films such as Star Wars and Star Trek, I like sci-fi to contain either, […]
