soggy, originally uploaded by No Middle Name.

I'm sat in my car waiting for the next train into the city. It's pouring with rain, and I'm messing about with my dodgy cameraphone to amuse myself.

Educating Owen

I've been introducing my kids to the high-brow entertainment that is The Goodies. This is yet another programme I loved as a kid, but wasn't sure was going to live up to my memories. I bought a four DVD box set a few weeks ago. Turns out, it's still brilliant. Kitten Kong, the Lancastrian Martial Art of Ecky Thump, and the Saturday Night Grease episode are all still really funny. Owen loves them, and so will you:

There's pretty much every episode on Catastrophegoodies' You Tube channel.

My laptop seems to be full of ants. No, really. They keep crawling out of the keyboard, and across the screen, and out from the vents at the back. We keep squashing them, but they keep coming. I don't understand how my ibook keeps working, there must be a colony of the little blighters in there somewhere. I blame Australia, it also seems to be full of ants.

I've installed an add-on for Firefox called ScribeFire, for handy blogging without having to go to Blogger's site. One problem so far is the dodgy wysiwyg editor, which wouldn't close the link above so I've had to manually edit the html.

Technology such as cloned part-robot humans used by organised crime gangs pose the greatest future challenge to police, along with online scamming, Australian Federal Police (AFP) Commissioner Mick Keelty says.
