Goodbye IE, Hello Spartan and Vivaldi

The end is nigh for Internet Explorer - the dreaded 19 year old web browser that we've all came to hate. Riddled with more bugs than your local town hooker, Microsoft have now stopped with the development of Internet Explorer (obviously security patches and stuff will still be sent out) and are now focusing on their new web browser titled Spartan.

I've yet to get hold of a copy of Spartan to give it a little whirl, but I'm guessing - as both IE and Spartan run off the Trident engine - it'll just be Internet Explorer... in a dress... with... [read more]

Can You Be Afraid Of Black People?

Can You Be Afraid Of Black People?

Firstly, I'll start this article with a couple of warnings...

This article CONTAINS some terms which others may find OFFENSIVE (they're being used in the correct context for this article [uncensored]).

This article is NOT in support of racism.

This article is NOT defending a UK councillor, this is merely a general thought that arose in light of recent events.


That's that bit out the way, so, as I've just said "this is merely a general thought" which popped into my head this morning when I was listening to the radio and it made me... [read more]

Atherstone Ball Game 2015

Atherstone Ball Game

For the first time in over a decade, this has been my first year of not actually being in Atherstone for their annual Shrovetide Ball Game (or "Atherstone Ball Game" or more commonly known as "Ball Game"), so I've had to rely on social media to know what's happening.

Now, for those of you that don't know where Atherstone is (be it if you're within the UK or from some foreign land), it's a small town (in England) situated along the A5 between Tamworth and Nuneaton... it's in the Coventry postal district (CV9) and within the county... [read more]

Project: UK METAR Weather Overview

If you're someone who knows me well enough, you'd know I have an interest with the weather (and to some extent other natural disasters too), so yesterday I got bored and usually when I get bored random ideas pop into my head, and one did so, of which I think would be of use to a majority of the online UK WX scene. Ok, so maybe not so at this time of year, but definitely during the year it may be quite handy.

The main reason this idea popped into my head, was because earlier this year when various storms were... [read more]

BT Advert Con

BT Advert Con

The past couple of weeks when watching the odd few things on TV, I've noticed another advert from BT - you know the ones, the storyline type ones with those two lads and a woman. Well, in this advert the lads had a mate around watching Breaking Bad on Netflix, and says:

Lad 1: "Well we did it"
Lad 2: "Two days solid"
Mate: "Yep"
Lad 1: "Breaking Bad, done!"

That immediately got me gobbing off to myself (as I wasn't around other people when I first watched the advert *starts playing All By Myself*), the reason for me gobbing off... [read more]
