Reblog with your chinese zodiac animal year
I am the year of the rooster (1993) I’m A Dog (82, as I was born before Chinese New Year in 83) as is my daughter (06). My son’s a Monkey (04) and the wife’s a Rat (84). I can’t remember all the other parts (inner, true and secret) but I know I’m a Water Dog and my daughter’s a Fire Dog. The wife is a Wood Rat, and my son’s a Wood Monkey.

shortformblog: Google thinks I’m a senior citizen. Based on the websites you visit and the stuff you search for, Google infers your interests, age and gender, in order to show you more relavent ads (digression: It does this, in part, by having partner websites place a cookie on your computer; more on that… It has me as an 18-24 male.

Oh… wait. And then… And then… And then… And then… And then… And then… And then… Now we begin working on ACTA…

Not blacking down: why is SOPA so bad?
So, the day of blacking out in protest is pretty much up in the UK. I still see a lot of confusion. So, why is SOPA so bad? Well, let’s start with the simplest element: what does it do? In short, any site displaying a copyrighted material the rights holder did not agree to can be taken down/ISPs ordered to route around/seized by the FBI and other such law enforcement agencies. So far so...

gamejournos: It is absolutely hilarious watching them post shit like this. It’s like watching a Republican Presidential candidate trying to maintain their integrity, or listening to Nickelback talk about how great their new album is. Is Special K falling apart without Crecente? Has the madness finally taken them all? It sure as fuck seems that way. Kotaku comments are the 4chan forums emptied...
So, they did it. They finally crossed the line. I had to watch the news at my mum’s house, and now I want to shoot all MPs.

Homecoming, bittersweet homecoming.
So, I’ve been back in Bradford for nigh on 3 months now. Enough time for both good and bad things to have reared their head… To start with the good, there’s a simple one: familiarity. I know the areas, the lingo, and as such if I want to find something, I know where to look. I’m also closer to family. I see a LOT more of everyone now, which is nice. I see my siblings...
Well, that's that scuppered.
