Takeaway Food -the easy way.

August 20th, 2008 2 comments

So its 2am on a Monday morning, and you really want that kabab.

A simple task you might think, but it never is. For one, you can never find a takeaway thats actually open, and for two it turns out I don’t have enough credit anyway. Its a pain in the ass.

So, why not point your browser to It lets you browse and order online from a takeaway local to you. It tells you if the takeaway is open or closed, and it gives you the option of paying with cash or card.

Really simple, really handy, really good website.

Most Fun Snack, ever!?

August 20th, 2008 3 comments

Hula Hoops' unique playful shape and their crunchy texture have made them the most fun snack to eat since they were launched in 1973.

Wow, I really am lost for words.

I was so shocked, I even left the camera in scepia mode I was so supprised.

I suppose the question has to be, What was the most fun snack before Hula Hoops, and Do I give a shit?

Points have to be given for correct appostrophie usage.

Hello WordPress World

I feel a little queezy. Possibly more than a little -throat infection and blocked nose, felt like I was coming down with flu when I finally crashed last night…

It might have more to do with the fact I’ve started blogging again. -Ironically, at this point the spell-check points out that blogging is spelt incorrectly, and did I in fact mean “logging, bogging, slogging, clogging or flogging”. Apparently I’ve left it in thesaurus mode.

And I’m using WordPress. I’ve run out of excuses, it Just WorksTM (ok, mostly just works, superscript is a pita) so I’m no longer pissing about with server configurations or trying to write my own CMS in perl or any of that shit, so I get to start blogging.

If you don’t like what you see here, then you’re probably in the wrong place.

GoogleMail on Sony Ericsson K750i

I use Google A Tools to manage email for some of the domains I’m hosting. After spending a couple of years messing about with exim, courier-imap and squirrelmail (and then roundcube, which is rather nice, if bad) I decided that when I moved the server, I couldn’t be bothered setting it all up again and google was the easy way out.

One stoned evening, after not being near a net connection for a couple of days, I started suffering withdrawal, and ended up installing Opera Mini (which is surprisingly good), set up the account to allow IMAP and then tried to configure the phone. All I got was an error stating:

Encryption error, TLS/SSL unknown certificate authority

I spent a lot of time googling and got nowhere fast, in the end it turns out to be really simple; all you need to do is have the Thwate Premium Server CA Certificate installed. Easy :)
