So much can happen in a short space of time
18:52 Jul 04
We are currently receiving reports of connectivity problems affecting some of our ADSL customers. Engineers are currently investigating.
This effectively kicked me off-line for about five hours earlier today, although I could still communicate via services I was already connected to such as IRC. In that time, I learned of Barry White's death and a bomb scare at the UK Big Brother house which led to the housemates being evacuated and the postponement of eviction programmes until tomorrow. Ironically, the bomb scare is probably the most exciting thing that's happened in Big Brother this season. Barry White, of course, will be greatly missed.

Frenzied attempts to video chat with aajwind (who was in the brand spanking new Apple Store Chicago at the time drooling over the 12" PowerBook G4) failed miserably. I later discover that iChat AV requires a minimum G4 or 600MHz G3 processor for any kind of video chat to work properly, which it obviously has no hope of doing under my crappy 250MHz processor. Sorry foxmagic, I'll have to settle for your elite iSight-captured pictures. Le sigh.

Oh, and Happy 5th of July, everyone.

Mmm, pizza.

The JULY 5th thing is priceless;
I hope lightningbaron sees it (he been having comp probs too!).

BIG BROTHER American style has been dreadful;
I still don't know if I'm gonna watch or boycott
the premiere of 4 on July 9th.

Have you read this? It sounds like a shameless gimmick an interesting angle on the format, and may prove to at least be a compelling reason for you to watch the premiere.

By the way, US BB4 will be aired over here on the digital channel E4. No word yet as to when I'm getting digital telly, sadly.


There's been absolutely no coverage!
The TVGUIDE offers no description whatsoever
as though they've already given up on it
(which usually happens a few weeks in).
