    Geeeez... I only got vista at the beginning of this year and the replacement is already nigh! I'll have a play with that I think, altough I am determined to get OSX working on my quad core machine. I had it runing sweet in my old AMD box, so I'm buggered if it won't work on my new Intel box!

    One of my friends just lost their driving licence for not parking their car up in town when they'd had a drink, suffice to say if you're a motorist these days you're screwed, whether you do the responsible thing or not :(

    Whereabouts are the piles, Tori? I've probably got to walk up that street in the dark tonight. :(
    I think I might just walk down the centre of the road.

    Well maybe not, but it just really pisses me off. I have never had a dog, and to be quite frank will never have one, because I couldnt bring myself to clean up after it, and as such if I did not feel I could be a resposible owner I would not have a dog. Cat poo on my lawn also winds me up summat chronic-but i can throw stuff at cats cos they dont often have an owner attached (sorry cat lovers).

    Same here...I looked after someone's dog for a day and there's nothing worse than having to pick up fresh dog shit with only the thickness of a plastic bag to save you..

    Just you try it..

    Have you ever tried to negotiate that little alleyway that runs from the cyclepath on the old Uttoxeter Railway line to Izaak Walton Street? It is like a faecal minefield. I have never seen such a consisitent concentration over a thirty yard stretch anywhere else. It was like that for years, although I haven't used it lately.

    I saw a story the other day that the authorities in Paris ( I think ) are intending to DNA test all dogs so that offending owners might be located. If the Environental Health Department here were to adopt such a policy and publish the addresses of those found guilty then your wish would be granted. Worth paying your Council Tax for?

    That has been affectionately known as dog shite alley for years by the locals, its orrid :(

    Anyway, ranting, yes.

    Motorbikes, or rather mine. Pile of crap hates the cold, its currently stuck in stoke meaning I'm on the train again for work, bah!

    Work, too much of, sitting here doing it now, grr!

    Apendics, inflamation of, just back from visiting my bro in the hospital. He collapsed at work on Friday, he's now minus his appendics and not too happy about it. Still, at least its not his kidneys like they first suspected I suppose.

    get a push bike to the station.
    use the now improved rail links and time table.
    cycle the other end too.

    Alternatively use your brothers vehicle as he's out of the equation atm

    A couple of years ago, when I was still cycling that route, there were a couple of disposable nappies there for at least three weeks. I thought that was taking the piss, but I might have been incorrect.

    Corned Beef cans are the work of culinary evil and shud be redesigned.

    I am partial to a bit o corned beef hash, and upon seeing a smallish can of affore mentioned beef product in the corner shop I decided to partake. However upon rolling of the stoopid little key the can refused to separate into two halves. So I gave it a playful tug resulting in a particularly deep and painful gashette to my pointy finger ( ie the one what I points with)

    /end rant


    * edit due to my caggy spelling which is due to poorly pointy finger

    You are not alone - unless you're under 50. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article1010656.ece?token=null&offset=0 Be careful or you may become another statistic.

    Never mind. It will get easier very shortly when the downhill slide really gathers momentum.
