Wow! I realise that it is a long time since I blogged…

Anyway, a friend recently told me about Null Island! It sounds like a great place!

Unfortunately, it is difficult to actually get there, according to If You Can’t Follow Directions, You’ll End Up on Null Island.

A friend recently sent this humorous guide to programming languages to me – A Brief, Incomplete, and Mostly Wrong History of Programming Languages.

Actually, this guide makes me feel that I want to learn a weird and wonderful new programming language!

US Airways Embraces Twitter

It is fascinating to see how US Airways is embracing Twitter, as described in US Airways Just Tweeted Out One Of The Most Graphic Things You’ve Ever Seen A Brand Tweet.

What are even funnier are some of the tweets in 38 Priceless Twitter Reactions to That NSFW US Airways Tweet.

Some Friday afternoon humour… I discovered Stu’s Views this week! If you have ever worked with any legal people then you might find this frighteningly true!

I have always wanted to invent (or at least be one of the first to use) a new technology related word! Well, now I think that I have a good one – installups.

Installups are routine installations and upgrades that your operating system does. They generally make little sense to non-technical users, and they frequently occur at unsuitable times.

In fairness, credit for this word goes to a female friend of mine who recently told me:

I had to wait for ages in work last night for my laptop to do its installups.

She was referring to her Windows 7 laptop :o

Remember – you first read about installups here ;)

Annoying Email

It is Friday afternoon, so I think that a bit of humour would be appropriate ;)

I came across If you do this in an email, I hate you during the week, and I must admit that I can empathise with a lot of these scenarios!

There are also several other very funny cartoons there!

Enjoy the weekend!
