Twitter – Pri.me.uk lite?

I know, I know, life/work overtook me and this site fell into disrepair but 10 years and over 10,000 posts was a lot to keep running.

I know people still hit the site all the time and I still get emails asking when we will return sooo… I’m thinking of doing a lite version of the site possibly based around twitter – anyone interested can follow me on Twitter and if I get a few followers then I’ll start posting some links on there – you know what to expect…

It’s Been A While…

If anyone is still watching this blog then I must apologise for the sudden lack of posts a few weeks/months ago.

Contrary to popular opinion I’m not dead despite all of the emails asking me if I am (how was I supposed to answer those if I were dead?)

The boring answer is a mixture of Jury Service, being transferred to a new company (5 times in 10 years now!), holiday (Anglesey, thanks for asking – it was surprisingly brilliant), the site being f**ked up by my hosting company,  illness (root canal work), lots and lots of work which left me too exhausted to think about posting things and no time to research posts and to be honest a complete lack of incentive – I’ve been doing this site for over 10 year now and have made over 10,000 posts.  I’ve loved doing this site and really appreciate the help I’ve had from our posters (Carloz, Al, Doug et al) and from our readers (particular thanks to ted, Imran, Kim Kinslow, Channon, Our kid and Dan P for their regular suggestions – I read and love them all but I’m awful about replying to mails!).

I’m not quite sure what to do now – I don’t want to stop and I don’t have the time at the moment to do much on it myself.  I’m open to suggestions and would consider opening up the posting abilities to anyone who fancies posting themselves  but in the meantime I’m taking a break after 10 long years of posting the best of the internet for your delectation.  If any of you remember what the internet was like 10 years ago you’ll know how hard it was to find good content!  Thank you for reading this far – we might be back, who knows….

Rob Zombie directs detergent ad

Yep, you read that right, Rob Zombie has directed a TV spot to promote Woolite as part of an attempt to update their image! Unsurprisingly there’s a distinct lack of pretty young mums looking forlornly at their kids muddy football kits.

Anyone for a street cleaning simulation game?

Could this be the ‘must have’ release of 2011 – a Street Cleaning simulator with a soundtrack that wouldn’t be out of place in a Modern Warfare release. If I had a PC, I’d play this. Keep it tidy people.

Brighton Geeks GGHC submission

As part of element14?s Great Global Hackerspace Challenge BuildBrighton submitted this fabulous Phonicubes project. Phonicubes is a super nerdy way of teaching kids to read using the Phonics system. It uses an Arduino Duemilanove, a protoshield, a custom wave shield, and an ID-2 RFID module for a total cost of £81, well under the team’s US$900 budget. Well done guys :)

Most cringeworthy video of 2011?

A guy on the NYC underground tries to create a spontaneous patriotic moment on the morning after the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.

Watch from behind the sofa.

Abandoned buildings from the future

These amazing monuments in Yugoslavia we’re left to rot when the Republic dissolved in 1990, but the decay has made them look even more awesome.

The Urbex Holy Grail Mail Rail

I’ve read the stories, I’ve seen the plans and I’ve heard the rumours but I’ve never seen any modern photos of the Urban Explorers Holy Grail – London’s secret underground 23 mile long Royal Mail train system which ran from 1928 to 2003. As far as I know no -one had managed to crack it and get in for a full exploration…
Until now – sit back and enjoy The Post Office Railway (Mail Rail).

Marco On The Bass

Really loving the ska, 2tone, reggae, soul and rocksteady blog Marco On The Bass. I’ve just spent a very pleasurable 2 hours randomly going through bits of it, reading his very well written and researched articles and watching the supporting youtube videos. I don’t honestly find that many new blogs of interest these days (maybe I’m just a bit jaded) but this one was right up my street. Even if it’s not your kind of music it’s still a very good read indeed. Kudos Marco.

Emergency and Disaster Information Service

I don’t think it’s too morbid to say that I find it fascinating to check out the Emergency and Disaster Information Service interactive map regularly. As long as none of the events affect me that is. It is a really good tool to see what is happening in the world from outbreaks of meningitis to flash floods or building collapsing. Very thought-provoking indeed.

Just Look at Those F’in Boots

I was sent this video of Mexican Pointy Boots with the heading I used above – pretty much sums up this weird South American hipster fashion trend.
