Almost there

Wednesday already. I’ve taken friday off, spending the day shopping in Amsterdam. So only one more day and it’s practically weekend. Sigh. Because of the wintertime thing, it’s already dark when I go home now. Though I don’t mind the dark, or the increasing cold, but it’s getting more difficult to stay in a good mood. I find certain thing annoy me a lot more. Like walkmans that are on too loud a volume. And it’s always playing some ghastly R&B album. Or people who don’t give up their seat for the blind guy, who always gets on the same bus as I do. I just don’t get that.
Other stuff » The Sex Pistols‘ “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols” was released 25 years ago today. Yahoo! is switching to PHP. Photoshop Phriday is really hilarious. Don’t think I’ve ever seen the movie The Dead Zone, which I’m reading at the moment. Maybe I can rent it after I’ve finished the book. See how it compaires.

Misc

It’s hard. My internal clock is still on summertime. I awoke too early this morning, after which my brain concluded that it must have been weekend and I could sleep in. When the alarmclock finally started doing it’s job, it was too late and I was in a deep sleep. It then took to long to return to normal. I hate wintertime.
The Register has an interesting article about Banks and Browsers. Here’s a link to the beta version of the new W3C HTML Validation Service. And I rather enjoyed this article about an Englishman’s Difficulties with the Dutch

Storm

Check out a number of past online hypes at Nerd cult. Wintertime has begun last night, meaning the clock went back one hour at 03:00. Also, a storm is currently raging on our coast. Gusts of wind at 130 km/h, wind-force 11, and rain ofcourse. Oh, did I mention how impressed I am with the B2 PHP/MySQL blogging tool? Well, I really am. Seriously thinking of switching.

Friday. Sigh.

After months of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age, Cake and other ‘alternative’ music, we’ve now added Bach to the playlist, here at work. It’s actually quite soothing. Why o why didn’t we think of this any sooner. Anyhow, today has been rather hectic, working on a few different projects, most of which have urgent deadlines. Not exactly what I prefer on a friday. Sigh. But it’s almost weekend, so I have plenty of time to recuperate.

How much?

Throughout the ages, man has pondered the question, “How Much Is Inside?” And did you realise we’re celebrating the official date for Biblical creation of the world today. Really. Archbishop Ussher (1581-1656) said so.

Cale

I just dug up Naturally, after not having played it for a number of years. J. J. Cale is so laid back. Perfect for a bit of reading on a slow sunday evening.

Also, I got a call earlier, to let me know that Anathema are playing Tivoli (Utrecht) on December 12th. If I wanted to come. How could I not. So after a too long a time of hardly any concerts, I now have 2 lined up.
