Google taking over the world!

Hazar! I've finished all my web programming work! Brilliant!

Google have now UK-alized their maps and SMS services! Google maps seems way better than multimap as it's loads clearer and has business and stuff too. On the USA version, they have zoomable satellite images and there's loads of cool places you can see! The SMS thing is a magical texting thing that (I think) is free (at the moment). You just text what you want to 64664 and you get a reply in seconds! Try it now! E.g.: "tesco.exeter", "from exeter to wimbourne", "price cheese", "define cheese", "g spoon throwing" and "7+4cm in miles"! Pub quizes will now be very easy.

From their FAQ:
"I have free messages through my mobile phone plan. Can I use them for Google SMS?
Yes, you can. "

In other news, we still have lots of madras sauce stuff to get through...

Back in Exeter now...

I'm in Exeter now. I arrived yesterday and went to the spoons, then we went bowling and finally trundled home. I'm now trying to sort my room out as it's a tip. This afternoon we're either going to the beach or Tescos, depending on what people want ot do more. I will be going home again tomorrow probably mid-dayish, where I will stay until about Saturday.

Some new things in Exeter include:

  • Cheese slicer
  • Bettter potato masher
  • Mess
  • Tequila
  • Fruit
  • Buildings (new ones anyway)
  • Some weird monument thing in the town center
  • Sun!

Back to Exeter soon...

In a few days I'm going back to Exeter. That means I should be able to put all my photos from the last few weeks online. I've also just made the comment thing here magical - try clicking on the comments. Clever me.

We've managed to raise lots for the Red Cross so far, but as that page has stopped working (you can no longer donate), you can still donate here.

Food time now.

Well, I suppose I have a spare minute or two...

Lots of days have passed with no hint of what has happened. Unfortunately my mind is not perfect at remembering exactly what has happened.

In February my cold got better. In March I came home from Uni. Now it's April. That's about it really. Some random things I remember include:

  • Going to the beach at Exmouth
  • Driving
  • Eating lots of icecreams!
  • Going on lots of walks
  • My parents getting officially divorced :-(
  • Our house going on the market (anyone want to buy it?)
  • Going to the zoo
  • Birthdays!
  • Giving up alcohol for 47 days! (We did it!)
  • Having a little too much to drink one night
  • Climbing trees
  • Doing handstands
  • Fixing computers
  • Learning to wake up in the morning
  • Going to the cinema
  • Eating
  • Laughing
I've done lots more, but those are the things I remember right now. Maybe when I put all my phonetos (phone/photos - I just made that up!) on the Interweb I'll be reminded of lots more. If I missed something you think I should remember, don't blame me, blame my brain.

Here I am

I bet you thought I'd gone forever. I've been in a non-internet based universe for about a month. I'm back now. Lots has happened and a have photographic evidence. Stay tuned...
