These guys take their job really seriously, they always get their facts. But how do you check if Bill Murray drinks warm milk to get to sleep? Hilarious, with guest appearance by Bill Murray as himself.
In case you missed it. The best documentary on the war I have seen thus far. Almost two hours long, John Ware looks at the lack of post-war planning. The documentary was broadcast on BBC1 last month.
Jim Cramer, in an article about the Fed chairman Ben Bernanke, brought up George Bush’s views on the US economy. He constantly says it is fundamentally sounds, even if things are not going quite so well.
I’m not surprised by President Bush’s sunny economic outlook—this president would praise the Weimar Republic’s hyperinflation as great for Home Depot and the wheelbarrow industry.
So the iPhone launched today in the UK, and my logs show someone in Dublin visited on O2 using an iPhone. Who was that?

Hilarious, or at least to those of us from the pre-mobile, pre-broadband generation, and remember using computers before Windows 95.
As readers may have noticed I have Google Adsense on my blog. I have installed Donncha’s plugin for only showing irregular visitors who drop in via searches of the archives, but it does not appear to be working. Can anyone advise?
I expect that most regular readers hate seeing the ads, so I would like them to disappear for you guys!
I’ve started watching season 2 of Heroes. I had heard much talk of Cork being in the second season, and god it’s bloody awful. The accents are woeful, the sets make Ireland look like it did in 1954 rather than 2007. The second episode shows a pub “The Wandering Rock” (
whatever that meansan apparent reference to Ulysses – in Cork?), with dingy bathrooms and people wearing shabby dirty clothes. Jaysus.
I guess there are some pubs like that, but do we have to stereotype to such a degree?
Here’s hoping it gets better.
Here is Season 2, episode 1.
