My blog apparently has its own unique DNA. It’s alive I tell you!

DNA of my blog

The forensics lab where you can also find your site’s DNA is called Baekdal.  Once you’ve entered the URL you get a nice looking visualisation of the DNA map in a range of colours.  Not ‘arf.

The new version of Skype for Mac OS X is now out of beta and supports video. Pretty good news that Skype has finally caught up with the windows version!

There’s a new Sony Bravia ad out – the same range of products that gave us the millions of bouncy balls being unleashed down a San Francisco street. The new ad features what I can only describe as fireworks meets paintbombs meets choreography. The soundtrack isn’t as good as the old one though – it reminds me of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange.

I found this useful article on how to send encrypted, digitally signed emails, and it’s all for free. I’ve never done this before, but there are plenty of times when I should have.

today for one day only in the UK. The national trust is encouraging everyone in the UK to record a single “day in the life”.

I think Amazon is having some issues at the moment. First I buy a new printer from them…fine. Then I get an email thanking me for buying a printer (a different one from the one I actually bought), and then it seems to assume that the printer it just mentioned is not, in fact, a printer but rather a camera.

I guess everyone has an off-day.
