Bloglines looks like a decent web based newsreader which means its available from any pc and you don’t need to mess with synchronising your feeds between computers, although an opml file helps with that (which I imported from Awasu)

Techdirt has post about how hotels are purchasing mobile phone jammers to force people to pay the hotel’s vastly inflated phone charges. I’ve certainly experienced going into many hotels and not having any signal on the mobile. I thought this might have been to do with the construction of the hotel such as metal skins…Having said that, I’ve also seen many hotels block or charge large connection charges to 0808 numbers which means that I cant access Onetel’s internet access for 1p a minute from the hotel.
I’ve been using Awasu a bit more recently. I tend to keep (or rather have to switch) to the Unread Posts filter option so that it only displays all posts I’ve not read yet. Its a bit annoying that you have to click on the sitefeed on the left, pane and then scroll down the top right pain to view the contents of the feed.
Had a reply from the makers of DigiAny to my question about the directory structures which was a lot quicker than I expected as I sent the email to them yesterday so well done Will! I’ve asked them about the registration number problem…..I’ve also discovered that passwords get truncated to 10 characters.
Ever been webpage surfing and came across a 404 error or “page is no longer here” type error message? Well with the bookmarklets at Google Cache Hacking it is possible to add a link to your links bar that will retrieve the page from googles cache. Works great as one of the links on that page returns a 404! which is fixed by going to Google cache
We went to see this film last night which was hilarious. A great film with good special effects which don’t really on really blurred, fast motion, long distance shots so that noone realises that the picture you are seeing at the moment is computer generated. There are a lot of funny lines from Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. Yet again I spotted a boob in the film (not that kind!!!! – there are a couple of shots where you can see the heroines bra strap yet they were not invented until way after 1900!)
You would have thought that people would have turned off the email notification by now.
I’m very tempted to set up an automatic response to [email protected] as below.

I did not send this virus. Can i suggest you turn off these notifications as all they are doing is clogging up all the email servers which are struggling enough already!
