I before E
Whoops, I seem to have found a hole in the standard
English spelling rule "I before E except after C",
not that it really excuses my spellings of
recieve receive and
The rule breaking word is a popular drug extracted
from plants grown in Africa and South America, and
the correct spelling is caffeine.
I wonder how many of the other spelling rules have holes like this?

Yet another site for your blogroll,
a site mostly devoted to the lighter side of Formula 1.
There's a better url coming soon, when Rafe sorts out the DNS...
Main ranters currently are OPL mad
and myself, athough more contributors are welcome.

Life on Mars
sounds like fun, but wouldn't it be cheaper (and better for all of us)
if the US had just signed up to the Kyoto treaty rather than
turning the World into their dustbin?

Rice has "Nothing to hide"
But the truth it appears...
Why on earth is it a
"long-standing principle that sitting National Security Advisers
do not testify before the Congress"? Is it because Congress is one
of the few places they'd have to tell the truth? Servants of the people
should be answerable to their masters, if not they should do the honorable
thing. I'd settle for resignation, but ritual disembowelment is fine too.
Ms Rice can consider herself a member of the enemy
in my ongoing
War Against Bullshit.
