  • The Internet As An Art Form – The Infinite Cat Project

    28 August, 2004

    Just came across the Infinite Cat Project. The premise is simple: take a picture of your cat looking at the current picture on the web site, and send it in, and it will become the current picture. The first cat is Frankie: just click Next Cat to get to the next one. I think this is a great use of

  • Troma Night Website Integrates With Abnib

    28 August, 2004

    Woo and indeed hoo! I’m really starting to enjoy programming RSS feeds into my web sites now. I’ve just done a little bit of recoding of the Troma Night website to allow the newly-relaunched Aberystwyth weblog aggregator, Abnib, to syndicate it. Now, Abnib will show the details of the next upcoming Troma Night… and not a moment too soon –

  • Abnib’s Back!

    27 August, 2004

  • Thunderbirds Are… NO!

    26 August, 2004

    I saw Thunderbirds at the cinema last night. Jeez; was that awful. Unlike Bryn (who’s complained at length about the film already), I’m not a long-standing fan of the original TV series, and so the film didn’t ‘ruin’ it for me (although I did notice several major inconsistencies). Nonetheless, I still found the film to be quite abysmal. The whole

  • How Google Could De-Throne AIM, And Other Geeky News

    24 August, 2004

    There’s an article on how Google could overthrow AIM/ICQ, and perhaps even MSN Messenger, from their dominant positions in the instant messenger market, and improve internet standards usage and accessibility, by releasing thier own instant messenger tool powered by the (wonderful) Jabber protocol. It’s a lovely idea, but (sadly) not one which is likely to happen. On similarly geeky news,
