Another attempt to start reading more

This week, I have decided to make another attempt at reading more books. I read stuff all the time, but almost all of it is on the web. A few hundred words at a time. Lots of breadth but not much depth. I have never done much in the way of reading books. Fiction is […]

Exclusive: New Ferrari engine for 2009

It has been revealed that software company Moog have been selected to make Ferrari’s new synthesiser simulator. Reading between the lines of this statement, it seems as though Ferrari will have to have a new engine next year for the synthesiser simulator to sound realistic.

F1 season review: websites

I am making this the last in my series of posts looking back on the 2007 Formula 1 season. Truth be told, I’ve become a bit sick of writing them every Sunday. I skipped last week. Anyway, next Sunday is in a different year, and it’s a bit off to be looking back when everyone […]

LOL mate!

I bought a diary today, and you know how diaries always have several dozen pages of “useful” (ie. useless) information. Well mine has two whole pages of text abbreviations. It claims that ‘LOL’ means ‘Lots of luck’. I’m not sure I can trust that sunrise and sunset chart any more.

Toss 24

Sounds like a dream drug, one that can mimic the effects of alcohol but with no risk of a hangover (via Digg). But I agree with the detractors who say that it would be a complete nightmare. The hangover is your body’s way of telling you that you overdid it last night. You know when […]
