A new standard – BLX. I think all Weblogs and even many websites should automatically include this button. It would save a lot of trouble in the longrun. The best thing about bollox is that many people are automatically compliant. Its possibly the best written standard I’ve ever seen. People know it without even reading it. Thats pretty amazing.
I must download the button and stick it on this site.
This site compares the cheapest prices between the various amazon stores worldwide to get you the cheapest items shipped to you. Just used it to find a book which was 12 dollars cheaper including shipping to get from the states.
Oh and the music from the latest Baileys ad is: les fleur by 4 Hero
This Mulley has been writing poetry of late, and some new prose. I might put it online somewhere.
Everyone should blog and discuss with the world or just yourself and google (yes no matter what you put online google will view it). If you think you have worthwhile thoughts then I would think its almost your duty to blog.
Blogs are not just one way. Its not like a newspaper article as with a blog people can comment on what you said and can enter a debate with you and other viewers can also join in on the debate. And unlike a crowded room where everyone wants to comment but can’t, everyone can comment and give their opinion on a blog. The blog gives everyone equal opportunity to comment and contribute.
Thats if comments aren’t turned off. They are on mine until I find a way to beat the spammers.
If you are an expert in your field, it would probably be most beneficial to that field to have your comments on various issues. I’ve seen blogs that are able to get some great minds talking over time. This leads to new ideas and bonds of friendship and knowledgesharing. Quite handy.
Mailing lists are good but force you to download all the content before seeing it. So you could be downloading a whole conversation which is junk whereas you can just ignore it online. If you get bored of the topic you just close the page and it need not bother you anymore. No unsubscribing of any sort or resubscribing.
So go blog !
Some complete fucking muppets on boards.ie made some jokes about rape. One said that he gets turned on by rape. I really can’t see any humour at all in that. Theres Freedom of Speech and theres lack of compassion and understanding for those that have been raped. Wonder if he got drugged and raped would he think its a subject to joked about. This was my reply in the thread.
Rape is not sex for either party. Rape is a violent act of power over another person, initiated to humiliate and control.
When you’ve been beaten, bruised, had your insides violated and torn and can’t rid yourself of that feeling that his ejaculate is inside you no matter how much you wash.
When you can’t move on from thinking that he could be there to do it again or anyone else around you is just as evil and could do the same to you.
When you cna’t even let those cloest to you comfort you and hug and kiss you because you are afraid to be touched.
When people give you looks like it was your fault for getting yourself into that situation, when you really can’t tell anyone what it was really like for the sheer shame of it.
When you feel like the above that I wonder will you be so lighthearted and jokey about such an act of violence ?
Thanks to M.E. for point out that Ó Maolaoidh turned into englishspeak = Mullee. I’m sure then that got further changed to Mulley.
Saw Zatoichi this weekend “in 19th Century Japan… Zatoichi is a blind wanderer who makes a living by gambling and giving massages. But behind his humble facade ” and he slices and dices anyone that pisses him off. Take the swordplay from Kill Bill and make it better and add some humour in places and thats what you have. Great movie. Must watch some of my Takeshi Kitano dvds.
http://www.factcheck.org – Nice unbiased political fact checker for the US Elections. We should have something like that here in Ireland.
A passive verb and adverb flagger for Mozilla-derived browsers Aidan will love that.

Some Funky T-Shirts from Oz. Pity they are not made by exploited people. The T-Shirts always feel softer if they are made by child slaves.
Just signed up my blog with QueerFilter Must add their button thingy to the site soon.
Charles Miller has made a post about his Rules of Argument. Its a good post, but what I really like is the comments. I find that quality blogs with authors that have have a clue attract intelligent people after a while who can contribute just as much to a post via comments.
One useful link that was posted in the comments was Wiio’s laws on communication. I’ve never heard of these before but they’re something worth looking at.
This link then brought me to Four Principles of Interpersonal Communication which are:
1) Interpersonal communication is inescapable
2) Interpersonal communication is irreversible
3) Interpersonal communication is complicated
4) Interpersonal communication is contextual
And I also followed a link to Six “Laws” of Organizational Communication and Some of Their Implications for Christian Workers
