Tagging is a joke

Tagging is a joke

Rant! Totally of 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. Tagging is a joke I know a lot of it has to with age, but even as a […]

Twitter and the Big Bang

If you use Twitter at all then I’m sure that you will have noticed all of the outages this week, 3 days of various “site availability issues” they say.  http://status.twitter.com/  We are unsure what that exactly means, apart from the various messages staring at us on the screen, which are mostly over capacity and/or the fail whale, which means…. Google time, or for some… Facebook. What concerns me is that with Big Brother 11 #BB11 just starting on the box (the final one evidently) and also the World Cup, #WC2010 #worldcup  (with predicted extra tweeters)  that Twitter will not cope.  Talking about coping… […]

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 […]
