Cable Site Live

Yet Another UKJOHND hosted and designed site has gone live tonight.

A site dedicated to and about Cable, the alternative/experimental band from Derby that gathered a massive cult, underground following.

This is already set as “The” on-line resource for all things Cable.


Well that didn’t work & Happy Birthday Mark H

After 3 1/2 weeks off the fags a weekend back on em after a minor car crash set me off smoking again, justified in my addictive head as a way to control the anger and self pity, thank god no one was hurt and the thought of a drink is far away in moments like that today. Reset the smoking clock and back to 24hrs,

Happy 5th birthday to Mark H, top night Saturday celebrating and a visit my first ever Drag Cabaret at Rubyz in the court of Dame Kitty Glitter, an hilarious evenings entertainment.

And as a minor aside “Total Eclipse of the Heart” as never seen before, especially love that drumming.

19 days of the fags

Wow, the worst part (the first two weeks) are over. Really is a miserable experience giving up the Marlboro Reds I’ve smoked at 30ish per day for the past 13 years. 3rd attempt at it, and hopefully third time lucky, first time I managed 8 weeks a two years ago, a pathetic 8 days last year. Last year didn’t really count as I had a crazy idea I’d still smoke cigars after meals, funny how controlled smoking didn’t work either…..
Well still got my nicotine patch on, so not given up the drug quite yet, but at least the grumpy constant suppressed anger has started to subside after this little period. Seven years 5 days off the drink and 19 days off the cigarettes, a day at a time, still not giving up caffeine anytime soon tho.

As an aside thought I’d test drive the new Firefox beta (Bon Echo) as the ebuild just landed masked in Gentoo portage. Seems the “must have” new feature to justify the upgrade from 1.5 is the inline spell checking in text boxes as you type in the web browser, it’s an absolute god send for my crapness at spelling.

OMG Noel puts his foot right in it, more cringably funny than "The Office", gets better time every time I watch it.


WordPress 2.0.3 Upgrade

First ever upgrade of wordpress since installing it from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3, and it went as smoothly as a freshly shaved hamster, thanks to the easy instructions.

Apparently I get the following.

  • Small performance enhancements
  • Movable Type / Typepad importer fix
  • Enclosure (podcasting) fix
  • The aforementioned security enhancements (nonces)


God bless the internet

What a strange place the Internet is, where else would someone take the time to create something entirely dedicated to the ebay purchases of Paul Daniels. Oddly compulsive reading tho offering a window on the mind of the diminutive trickster. 

Paul Daniels Ebay

Ahh the memories

Found an old copy of this site from over 3 years ago with it's big blocky Flash menu, back when I tried hosting the site from a server in my flat. Still it taught me how to break an IIS server and then give up and learn how to set up an apache server.
