I am 70 pages away from finding out who the skeleton found in the soon to be Scottish Parament was, who killed the prospective MSP (minister of Scottish Parliament), and why a tramp with almost half a million pounds jumped off waverly bridge.

I just tested a little app on a windows 2K machine. The app is supposed to lock the mouse into one part of the screen so you can have the screen visible but users can’t use the computer until a password has been entered. In under 2 minutes I had defeated the little beast. I couldn’t move the mouse but I was able to get access to cmd prompt or for that matter any other window. Ooops I guess it is not very secure after all.
I have been using a little app called cookie pal for a long time now. It makes me feel a little better if I know that people can’t track me through cookies. I have been using yahoo email more often in the last month or so, but I don’t like all the cookies that yahoo sets. If I block cookies from Yahoo I can’t get into my email. However I can ban yahoo cookies except the for the ones that expire in the current browser session, but i have to hit the sign in button twice….. Hmmmmmmm strange.
I just got this email,
This email is a notice from the internet spelling police that your page contains an inaccuracy. Specifically you misspelled the word “inaccurate.” If your site was built by a “professional” web designer, we suggest you seek damages because it certinally doesn’t look professional with misspellings in it. If you built the page yourself, we commend you on contributing to the world wide web and invite you to find a spell checker and add it to your list of things to do before publishing a new page. There are several freeware spell checkers (some even on the web) that will do this service for you. Since almost without exception this particular misspelling occurred in an effort to correct someone else’s mistake, we encourage you to first look inward for areas that can be improved before being critical of others’ work.
Who gave them the right to say my spelling is crap. I know it is, so bite me.
I have been watching 42up, which has been following some people who grew up in England. They started at age 7 then visited them 14, 21, 28, 35 and now they are at 42 years old. I think more than anything else it is just depressing.
