Post number 184!

No internet for ages = no upblogdates + many emails. Fixed now.

Lots has happened since mid August. I have photographic evidence of some. Woo!

Mum (Alison) got married (to Adrian) and Dad (Martin) got married (to Gill). All very strange and confusing, but people seem to be getting happier, which is good.

We got a sale agreed on our house in Oakley Hill and my Mum's renting a place in Colehill. Dad's on honeymoon thing at moment, but living near Manchester after. People moving into Oakley Hill tomorrow, so today is last day!

I'm currently living in Colehill with Mum and Adrian but moving to Exeter in September.

Going on holiday to Barcelona from 7th to 11th, which should be awesome! Term starts on the 3rd Oct and I can give blood from the 4th. Then it's my birthday on the 9th Oct - hopefully going to Thorpe park! Woo!

That's all for now.

Turbo Coolnes: Nokia Mobile Search

I finally have UK maps on my phone! Nokia mobile search is amazing and works on my 7610! The maps aren't quite as good as Google maps, but the interface is very good. Now I'll never be lost! I used 200k of bandwidth in a minute or two, so watch out for data costs.

This seems quite cool, but it would be better if it could text all your friends instead of emailing them: Let ALL your friends & family know you're ok with 1 text @ Profits go to chairty, which is nice. Basically, when someone bombs London, you text "OK " to 60999, then they email everyone with the message. You can add up to 20 email addresses, so let me know if you want to be added!

If your a random reader, wiggle over to Nick's blog and add a silly comment. He can't work out how to add new posts.

Alsoly, this is cheaper than Skype, but I haven't tried it yet.

Overheard in the UK

He hee: Overheard in the UK is quite funny.

Creative commons

I just found this video from Opsound. It's very cool. Watch it now. Yahoo also have a Creative Commons search thinggy.

More stuff: the new Apple computers may have hardware DRM. Bad badness.

Mobile Google Maps looks brilliant, but I haven't got it to work onmy Nokia 7610 on O2 UK yet. Poo.

The Open CD is very cool. Get it now.
