Lost friends

Thursday, October 16th, 2003

Been reading about the Lazyweb for a while although never actually visited the site. (the rss feed seems borked)

Today I did visit and saw an idea for trying to connect with old friends. I had been thinking about this too but with other features such as a list of friends that you do have contact details for as well as a list of those you don’t.

So if say you are trying to Find John Q Murphy from your old school you list the names of guys/gals you know from that school and keep in contact with. Stick all them on a page that can get searched by google and whatnot. If John Q is looking for Mary O’Shea from your class and you have her name listed on your site he finds you too with a google search and sees you are looking for him. He also gets to see other people from the class listed. “Oh yeah Pat O’Brien ! I forgot about him. Oh he has a website, cool. ”

Maybe have an autoform that sends an email via your site after you authorize it so he can email Mary without knowing her address. With you authorizing this email it will prevent spamming via your site too.

If the people you know have websites you would of course list them too and any other details they want listed. The only issues would be too much detail as someone might try and steal that identity.

I’m not sure if something like this exists already as I’m too lazy to go and check.

(I started thinking about this again lately as recently I did a search for a friend and found he was last working in some college in the UK. I emailed his address but I don’t know is it still checked. I’m not a fan of read receipts )

For a minute there I lost myself

Radiohead – Karma Police

for a minute there
i lost myself

Still on a high from Iceland. One Kevin gets proper ssh access sorted I’ll have a gallery up and running again and I’ll post loads of the pictures. Iceland is great to visit but expensive. Its a good prep for when I go to Japan I guess.

Saw last night that Turin Brakes are playing the Friday after the Radiohead concert in Dublin. Think I’ll book tickets for them too.

Back from the land of Fire and Ice

I just love this pic I took of me: Grump fucker.

Iceland.Wow. Yes WOW. Fucking woah and whee and waaaa and WOW. Iceland rocks my socks into a groove thats going to stay with me for ages. The culture and the people are so cool. THEY GET IT. They get environment, democracy, peace, art, building and getting locked !

I’ll post more when I get some sleep. I’m going to go back again soon to the place.

So this is how he is doing it

No doubt his production company will probably sue websites that link to this Guardian story that I found via Warren Ellis

“sneaking off on the back of a cherry-picker at night (under the guise of a man wiping/emptying the box); going to the effort of freeze-framing the “shot” of being asleep at night to fool the cameras (controlled by your own production company naturally); the effort of strategically positioning ground-lights at night so that passers-by can’t see the back of the box when he makes the switch; ”

Unrelated: The new UNKLE album is shit,

I’m all stiff and sore from my weekend. Went to Dublin for the Boards Beers. What a laugh I had. I think I bought about 30 shots of Jagermeister Its lovely stuff. Blew a shed load of money this week. I think it came to 600 euros in total. Scary scary scary. But worth it.

I seem to have found some of my strenght again. I was lifting about people a lot. Shit I was drunk. I rang up the stairs while bearhugging some poor chap. All fun.

Saw this Steve Walker picture online:

I’m going to buy some of his posters and use them as Christmas presents. One or two are really really beautiful and will be given to people who I think the same of.

Justify my love

Did the Which Madonna Video are you ? test and I got Justify My love:

JMLbanner.jpg

“Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love

Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love”

Interesting. My fav Madonna vid is hard to pin down. Rain, Bad Girl, Vogue, Express Yourself .. the list goes on. The vids she makes are pretty damned good and she gets some very talented directors to do them. However if its the song it has to be “Drowned World/Substitute for Love”

Interesting – Email to RSS

Thursday, October 2nd, 2003

Mailbucket Now this is what I’d like. Email to RSS feed.

It would prove quiet handy for lots and lots of things. Mailing Lists in work could be viewed in a browser cutting down lots and lots of bandwidth.

Personally I’d stick a lot of my mailing lists into this and just have them on my website but spam protected. It would allow me to look through more mails as right now they get filtered to folders that I check only now and then.

Anyways I gotta go and study for a driving test.
