I've been thinking about creating a lazylaces forum, something that would have a general forum to let people chat in, and maybe threads for some of the more popular games (where I believe the site comments get a bit unwieldy). What do you think? The site comments would still exist (in their current format), I'm hoping a forum would complement these and rather than replace them. The forum would require registration (I have enough trouble with spam on the comments), but I don't think anyone would have a problem with this, would you? Anyway if you want to check out the sort of thing I'm thinking of look at snitz which is the free forum code I'm thinking of using (I really don't have time to do all that coding myself), and if you'd like to express you opinion add a comment on this post, or better still try the first lazylaces poll:
SqueezeBox is exactly what I want. Being able to wirelessly stream any music file from a computer in Lazylaces towers to my stereo system? Yes please. Stop that $299 burning a hole in your pocket and get ordering so it arrives in time. For reference the black version with the WiFi option is the one for me. That is all. I'm off to watch for the postman now. Oh, and one other thing, the fact that it's playing an obscure track in the marketing pic that I own means it's destiny, doesn't it? [via OhGizmo!].
After sending a day a while back tinkering with creating web pages for mobile devices I never really finished off what I was doing, but I did get the comments made on this site available on some mobile pages. Since then I've checked the comments virtually everyday using my phone when I'm away from my PC (on the train mostly), so I thought it was finally time to clean up the pages and advertise them to all. So, as of now, the site comments are available on your mobile phone, simply point your WAP/GPRS device to: XHTML-MP, which means that the pages should be readable from most modern, internet enabled, mobile devices, although I've only tested them from my Samsung (which uses the Openwave browser). You should be able to see the pages from a normal web browser as well, but obviously they don't look too good as they are formatted for devices with tiny screens (and the cool soft key links won't work either). Anyway if your try it out on a mobile device I'd love to hear if you have any feedback. I'm already planning to add automatic redirection for mobile devices from the main site address to the mobile address, and, if I suddenly get lots of time (unlikely), I'll also look at expanding the mobile content available.

People have complained that I don't keep my diary up to date!!!??? And I thought you were just here for the games. Anyways I don't have much time to write reams just now, maybe sometime soon. What I did want to do though was say a warm welcome back to Daisy, who in web years is an old friend of LL. She's been offline for sometime, but now she's back with a sparkly new site. *hugs* D, it's good to have you back. Incidently talking of web years, I've just realised the LL is 3 years old at the end of this month (at least in it's current format, it's getting on for 5 in total). Watch out for celebrations on the 29th.

Evil Genius T-Shirt, you will be mine, oh yes, you will be mine.
It's not often I'd ask this, but if Mr. Harvey Kendrick is reading, if that is your real name, please re-send your attempt to spam me with the e-mail entitled:
"PLAN SET IN MOTION TO CAPTURE LOCH NESS MONSTER!".
You formatted it badly and the whole body of the mail was missing, meaning I was left tantalized by the message's title, but with no further explanation. You tease you. You also missed out the word 'the' from the e-mail's title, but this tantalized me less.
Ooops - the new submit a link feature is proving to be more popular than I thought it would be! It's going to take me the rest of the week to get through just today's submissions, and I still have a load of bookmarks of my own. What have I done? Good-bye free time. Thanks for all your hard work, apologies if I'm very slow at replying and posting.
I've been off-line, and off work, for a couple of days as I've been shacked up in bed feeeling ill. Thanks though to my work inbox showing no mercy today and getting me right back into the swing of things. The most exciting thing today was the majority of The Met congregating outside of my office in flak jackets, cordoning off the street, and getting us to evacuate the building. The "suspicious" package across the road turned out to be nothing dangerous, which meant I both escaped a nasty death, and got out in the sunshine. All in all a good day.
Apple Store on Regent Street so far, but I cracked last week, deciding that an iPod Mini was exactly what I needed to replace my stolen MP3 player. I've already filled 5Gb of it's 6Gb capacity (Doh!), but that's another story, what I really wanted to say is that if you're in central London you have to visit the store. It's like a geek dream made real and impossible not to browse around unecessarily. *joy*
Camden on Saturday, and a Sunday afternoon jaunt to The Church for the more dedicated. I don't know quite how to describe The Church, but if you imagine the exact opposite of what you normally think of as church on a Sunday you won't be far wrong. Highly recommended (if you like very bizarre and debauched Sundays).
Wipeout Pure is just ridiculously addictive. You can complete a single race during an ad-break while watching television, almost miss your stop on the train while attempting a tournament, and win a few gold medals while in bed on a Sunday. My name is Graeme and I am a PSP addict. Anyway you probably want some links....
