If you've been listening to The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X (formerly XFM) last week you would've heard that they had a competition on there where you could go and see Stereophonics play live. To win this competition all you had to do is be the lucky caller that they selected and also guess what Stereophonics song Welsh singer Aled Jones was covering of theirs - but in Welsh. They chose to use Aled Jones as the group themselves are Welsh... so it fits, obviously.
However the competition this week changes and I sent a tweet... [read more]
It was like the internet, but in our television sets and massively slower than 56k, but it had everything we needed to know. The news, weather, lottery numbers, star signs, flight arrival/departure times... yes, Teletext was the place to go to get that information. These days though Teletext and Ceefax are no longer used and it is quite sad that we no longer have to sit staring at a black screen with white text on it whilst waiting for the numbers at the top to cycle all the way through for a new page to...

I only posted two days ago about checking your sources. I bet these people wished they did now after a week of retweet (RT) based goofs, where one tweeter would ask a celebrity to RT their picture of a certain "family member" - but instead of including a real image of said family member, they decide to use various "other" images.

If like myself earlier, you try sending a picture along with a tweet using the official Twitter app for Android and it sometimes doesn't send, but also doesn't give you a "Failed to send Tweet" error, you'll be familiar with "Sending Tweet..." being stuck on your dropdown thing.
Sadly, it doesn't disappear when you stop Twitter's process (in the "Running Services" option in your Settings) and you can't swipe it away (well, depends if your version of Android allows you or not) and this is a problem I have noticed all around the internet on... [read more]
Thanks to some eagle-eyed Tweeters this week (@AnalBlastersXXX) who found that my name is now featured on Coca-Cola bottles. Took Coca-Cola a while to include my name on the lists of bottles, but I'm glad it's now available, so people all over the country can "Share a Coke" with me. I did think when they first made these named bottles, that I was going to be left out altogether - like when you can get the named keyrings and cups from the seaside... they seem to have every name under the sun, besides...
