BoJo might be a bozo… the concise edition

In the wake of the reaction to my previous post, I want to re-state and clarify what I wrote. I am well aware that the previous post was way too long and ranty, and when you blog like that it is easy to lose focus. Hopefully this will be short. Snapesbabe reckons that my post […]

The meaningless difference between left and right

I hate all blogging awards except for the ones I am nominated for. That means I hate all of them (apart from James Higham’s Blogpower awards!).* One of the biggest problems is that there are just so many of them. The ones I always saw as the most important were the Bloggies — but perhaps […]

Hats off to The Daily Mail

I don’t say this often, but I have to hand it to the Daily Mail. And I’m not being sarcastic! Because their website is really rather good. Last week some journalists got all excited because the latest ABCe figures came out, telling them just how many people are reading their words. Marcus Warren from The […]

Visiting Guardian Unlimited

Has anybody else been having major problems accessing The Guardian‘s website? For the past couple of days now I’ve not been able to get it to load. Update: Managed to get it fixed now, whatever the problem was…

Guardian oldie

My nosy self spotted somebody reading the Guardian Weekly in the train today. I noticed that it hasn’t been updated to the current design of The Guardian which must be well over a year old now. How come?

Last week, the EUSA controlled publication Hype printed an article which implied a link between the University’s Islamic Society and Palestinian terrorism, based on information on Wikipedia. The […]

Blogging takes no time at all

A lot of bloggers have had a lot to say about Yasmin Alibhai-Brown’s little tirade against blogging. (You can’t read the article now because it is behind a subscription wall. Independent please note: this is why Guardian Unlimited and BBC News are the most popular news sites on the net and yours isn’t.) It is […]

In The Guardian

My post about Top of the Pops has been quoted in The Guardian‘s letters and blogs bit in the technology section.

Big Brother’s Big Saviour

This year’s Big Brother has been a pile of old bum apparently. A bunch of the original housemates turned out to be possibly too ill. A series of stunts devised by the producers has backfired — the Golden Ticket housemate turning out to be an immense dullard, and the building of a “secret house next […]

Searching newspapers

Currybet has a series of posts reviewing the search features of newspapers’ websites. This post summarises the results. He rates The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Mail most highly. I would agree with the latter two, although the last time I tried to search TimesOnline it was a complete nightmare.
