A large and spooky flash series from the BBC
which I'm just watching my way through now - thanks to Wastrel Division
for finding this. If spooky flash is your bag you'll also like Tramping Ground
which is a lot shorter but spookier [my first post!
UK TV listings - not that useful if you're not in the UK but damn handy if you are. I've been looking for a site like this with all the channels shown together for ages (I used one a while ago that just disappeared). I've not been watching too much TV lately but it's handy to be able to quickly find the things you do want to watch [Thanks to Ade
If the whole area of the alphabet between V and X gives you problems then you'll probably like this rant - Why I Hate The Letter W
Apparently I'm not very evil. It's official. Who'd have thought it?
I tagged Gizmodo
in the side bar (-->) a while back and have been checking the site every day ever since - a blog dedicated to new technology is a superb idea that works so well - Gizmodo
is frequently days ahead of my other favourite tech sites - El Reg

! Also see Strong Bad head to head with the King of Town in Revenge of the King of Town

Update(2): All these links are now broken suggesting the King of Town has left town. My screen shot (above) is all that remains. I'll be pulling all these links if this section of the Home Star Runner site doesn't resurface soon.
Welcome back off holiday to Wastrel Division

Look away now if you hate Micro$oft - these links are all articles I've found recently that have been really useful when I've been installing IIS intranet systems.

Finally some background reading in the DNS Centre for Windows 2000.
A very lazy Sunday today with only one link. I picked up a copy of Private Eye
on the way home from Fulham today which I haven't read in ages - still as funny as ever although it's a shame the web site misses all the political gossip - it does have all the cartoons though.
