Yesterday Mandy upgraded her old mobile from an HTC Desire to the Galaxy Nexus. It’s a lovely phone with Ice Cream Sandwich installed and no O2 bloatware 🙂 Incidentally I have also upgraded to a new phone – Mandy’s old one 🙁

With all the coverage of TPB in the media at the present time perhaps now is the time to look at alternatives.  I know that TPB is not going away soon whilst the appeals process is ongoing and the servers have been relocated to the Netherlands (and alternatives will pop-up) – but take a look at oneswarm. It’s available for Linux as well as windows.  I think some kind of anomynity giving client will be the future of p2p, whether it’s oneswarm or some other piece of software – it will happen.

Oneswarm is a friend-to-friend ‘darknet‘ file sharing protocol so will probably take off in university campuses first, you can watch a video here that explains oneswarm.

style of the Moleskine notebooks – I think it’s kinda steampunk

Why?  Just because I fancied a change.  I have altered the theme not to underline any links and also changed the home logo at the top of this page to a hat.  I am going to perfect my php and css skills so that I can create themes myself – so one day there will be a RAM Theme.

I don’t care that:

Although Moleskine srl claims their notebook has been used by well-known artists and writers, such as Picasso, Matisse, Kurakin and Hemingway,
the brand Moleskine was officially registered only in 1996. Francesco
Franceschi, head of Modo & Modo’s marketing department, was quoted
as saying, “It’s an exaggeration. It’s marketing, not science. It’s not
the absolute truth.”

I just like the theme!

I was reading my rss feeds the other day and came across this website which led me onto this one. I now tie my shoe laces with Ian’s Secure Shoelace Knot.

It doesn’t take any longer and is far more secure – and I don’t have to retie my shoes during the day.
