My isp (AOL) ofcourse offers free hosting up to 120megs. But alas dear friends they have a technical limitation which means I can not upload my photo galleries. :( So until I decide what to do there will be no more photo uploads!
I knew going with AOL as my isp would come back to haunt me! I'll probably just end up using imagestation. The best part about imagestation is that there is no limit to the amount of space you can use, and friend's can even order prints online.
Considering how much space I use up there (I upload FULL size originals), I can't help but wonder how profitable they really are.
I feel somewhat legitimised now. Most homepages probably go unnoticed by the wider virtual community. This site got a mention on Andrew and Kathleen's blog.
Its kinda nice to be linked to from another site even if its only a friend's site. Ironically this happened roughly around the same time that Ben my 'ol hosting service stopped.

In some weird twist of fate or something but the cheap clock radio that we got from Argos only receives 1 radio station properly and it seems to play way to much 80's music. I always believed the British music industry was bigger than Australia's and with so much talent going through there was little room for the older stuff. Its good to know the decade that I did most of my growing up still lives on... and thats not even mentioning the revival of 80's fashion, but thats an entry for perhaps another day :)
For example the English favourite hello is "Hi ya!" and instead of saying "eigth-thirty" for the time they would say "half-eight".

I spent a morning trying to find a phone number to call to make a booking for an NI interview. Got the round-around so much I tried the net. The website was broken. I found the local office who gave me the correct office to go to and 3 phone numbers to make an appointment and was told they never answer so just turn up with the appropriate documentation.
We turn up. We do need to make an appointment. They give us a 4th phone number. argghhh!!!
Atleast this number is correct and we're able to make an appointment. Apparently they ask questions like "when you arrived in England how did you get home and did you stop on the way". Maybe it really is relevant given all the extra security for terrorism, but I don't exactly see how. Any self respecting terrorist would lie anyway.

Lulu was impressed that I sussed out the barber and found out that he has been doing this for 11 years. Its good to know you have entrusted your hair to somebody with skill and experience after all! Why then do I feel like that cartoon cat that pops out of the washing machine as a big fur ball and floats away?!?!

Like me adding more "Did you knows" (which I do have a few more to add), if only I could be arsed to actually do it now...
