To the lakes and beyond

I just can't wait! Why? Because I've got a long weekend up in the Lake District this weekend with a group of buddies, so hopefully there shall be much merriment involving drinking of thee cup (plenty of booze), bold deeds (arsing about in the water and hills), and slaying of dragons (again drinking).

So look out for some new blog entries (finally) and plenty of pics.

Thank You Google

As Google helped me out so much I'm going to promote their Google Pack.

It's a good line up of free software.

Great Blogging Tip

As you can see from my previous post I had a little trouble with lost images/data.

Well I found out that Google has a great life/blog saving feature..... caching!

If you ever have any trouble with your blog and want to go back a step or two just go to Google and type in the URL of your website/blog. Under the search result you are given the option to look at Google's own cache. Hey presto your taken back to their last webcrawl and hopefully you can grab that data back!

Help! .......................Please Please Me

I've gone and lost some of the Images used in the template of my blog (something about hotlinking image quotas with Imageshack). I'm not sure if anyone out there will have the item cached away anywhere (probably not if your looking at this).

The offending pic is named contentbglrg4gd.jpg

It was the background image to this content column.

Note to self
Make complete backup of all Blog Items
Do not use imageshack

We have snow......just need Yak now

I need some help folks. We have snow here, so I've sourced the perfect tree topped hill with clear run from the bottom to said trees.

Now all I need:

1) 500+ metres of good rope.
2) Two harnesses (one Person sized, one Yak sized).
3) Bag of nuts (the type that drive Yak's wild).
4) One hungry Yak.

So if you could keep an eye on the small ads and ebay it would be much appreciated.
