Download speeds and The Punisher

Looks like I'll be getting an upgrade to 2M download speeds for free :) The Register

That'll be fun.

Saw the Punisher on DVD (it was a valentine prezzy from Ness) and it was a lot better than I expected. Not a fan of the Punisher comic but the film was fun.

In my list of comic book films I would say it fits between Spider Man 1 and Spider Man 2. This is a list of how much I liked the film not how well it compared to the comic etc.

X-men (1 & 2)
Batman Returns
Spider man 1
Spider Man 2

I'm hoping that Constantine and V for Vendetta end up very high on this list. But I have my doubts about both of them. Although the trailer for Costantine looks cool.

More Tests for Ness

Went to the hospital so Ness could get Nerve Conduction Tests to see if she has carpel tunnel syndrome in her wrists. Results in a few days hopefully.

Flikr Code

After trying to steal the code from Dan to get the Flickr photos on here, apparently flickr tells me the code. :)

Stuff I'm trying to work out

Things I trying to work out at the moment.

Getting stuff out of the forums posts from phpBB.

These are to work out how to help make organising next years Motocycle Aid Snowball a lot easier for Ness and the other organisers.

Ongoing is my continued playing with Suse pro 9.2 and linux generally. Getting the ATI radeon drivers to work under it is a constant joy :)

TV Gibberish

Ah ha a Simpsons episode on Sky 1 I haven't seen. It's a Treehouse of Horrors one, with a Sherlock Holmes/Jack the Ripper parody.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

General Background

Well a little background before I start posting what's happened recently.

Got married on July 11th 2004 to Vanessa.

I read lots of books and comics some of which are deemed good by the majority of people.
I listen to lots of music most of which about 8 people on the planet have heard of. I know the 8 people ;)
I watch lots of films most of which I feel the need to buy on DVD, Ness isn't too happy about this, she not too happy about a huge amount of books either :)

I ride motorbikes but usually one at a time.

We (Ness and me) have two kittens. They are by definition insane but I think calling them Loki and Bast weren't a good start.

I have no interest in football (or in the off chance someone from the US reads this, soccer, although I have no interest in American football either ;) ) or in fact most sports that most people like. Hopefully this will change ie more people will see the light. ;)

I do love motorcycle racing and follow MotoGP, World Superbikes, and British Superbikes. I also like Sumo wrestling but haven't watched it in while.

I have friends some of them blog, links later when I try and sort out what I can do with this without stealing all my ideas from my friends. ;)

Sometimes I do work as well. Usual IT related stuff.
