Dear Sir I write this note to inform you of my plight
And at the time of writing I am not a pretty sight
My body is all black and blue, my face a deathly gray
I write this note to tell why Mo is not at work today.
You can use a HOSTS file to block ads, banners, cookies, web bugs, and even most java scripts. This is accomplished by blocking the Server that supplies these little gems.
In many cases this can speed the loading of web pages by not having to wait for these ads, banners, hit counters, etc. to load. This also helps to protect your Privacy by blocking servers that track your viewing habits.

Curling is all very well, but it’s not very now. See, this things come and go with fashion and, sadly, Curling’s days are long gone. You just don’t see the kids going out Curling of an evening any more. Nobody cares.
So what are the kids up to right now, I hear you ask. Good question. Well, the game everybody is talking about is called Blogger Bashing. The rules are very simple: now that so-called weblogs and so-called weblogging culture are at least three years beyond being worthy of intelligent editorial, you simply have to write on the subject. This doesn’t necessarily involve owning, writing, contributing to, or (apparently) reading any weblogs—but the object is to become the world’s authority on them. Moreover, points are awarded for attempting to point out to the uninformed (assuming they exist) that they’re pointless, boring, egocentric, fashionable or passé. Basically, the more up yourself you are, the better you’re doing.
The science of speaker stands is almost as complex and involved as the science of speakers. I spent the day in bed, puzzling over complex equations to work out exactly what height and weight of stand I need. Once I’d got the numbers right, I got Studiospares on the phone to place the order—only to discover that I had an even more difficult decision to make. Did I want them in black or pewter? Of course, the first task was to figure out what the hell pewter is.
This should be good: Jackass is making its way out of the murky depths of cable television and onto UK terrestrial—starting this Friday night on 4. By all means, do try this at home.
