Randomness

Random thoughts and equally random web links. Unfortunately for you, I like to share.

A slow week?

How to calibrate your mouse

You should actually do this every year (even more often if you spend a lot of time on the computer).  I was shocked to see how well this works, and how far off mine was.

To recalibrate your mouse:

  1. Place your curser on the capital H below
  2. Left click and hold, then drag it toward the small g.

If it doesn’t work immediately, you might want to clean your mouse, as the calibration is off.

H o l y  S h i t!!! You’ll believe anything

I’m sure you will also recommend this to all your friends once you see the benefits of recalibration.

Walk on the Wild Side

The BBC’s Walk On The Wild Side videos are hilarious. According to the YouTube page, the show is a world of hip hop-loving badgers, dieting pandas and a marmot called Alan.

I wonder if we’ll ever get this series on our TV screens here? Oh well, I suppose our public broadcasters are too busy running repeats of Friends for the gazillionth time, and repeats of Two and a Half Men twice a week.

Besides, why on earth would we want to see fresh, funny television programmes?

(and yes, that was sarcasm)

Oh baby, how time flies

How did that happen? That cute little baby that featured on the cover of Nevermind is now 20 years old. That can’t be right: I remember so vividly when Nirvana released this, and it certainly didn’t feel like it was 20 years ago.

Anyway, the baby in question, the now all-grown-up Spencer Elden, re-created that famous pose last month to mark the 20th anniversary of Nevermind.

Yep, I think I’m getting old.

I live in the deep south of New Zealand, where smelly dairy cows are taking over from sheep in the livestock stakes. My hometown is the small but perfectly formed city of Invercargill, which is also the hometown of the original boy racer, Burt Munro. Find out more about me here.
