More foolish wordplay

12:35 AM

Here are things that have been amusing me. If you can think of any that are suitable for adding to my lists, please use the comments section to do so.

Basically, I'd like to introduce to to two rather unusual types of saying. Firstly, there's the seemingly similar but actually disparate entities which are contrasted together to provide an unusual counterpoint - or Type A for short. And secondly we have the ... well I don't know how to describe it really, other than to say that I'm looking for the sort of advertising slogans that would have been rejected prior to Typhoo coming up with:

We put the T in BriTain.

And obviously we'll call these Type B. Note that I don't want to see any comments to this one involving Scunthorpe, ok? Those of who had been wondering who put what in Scunthorpe can probably work it out for yourselves by now.

Type A - the not at all connected ones

  1. Time flies like knives - but fruit flies like bananas
  2. Silence is golden - but duct tape is silver

Type B - the put the something into something else ones

  1. We put the fun into fundamentalism
  2. We put the friends into killing frenzy
  3. We shat into shatterproof (with thanks to JCC)

Where the hell have you been?

12:06 AM

I've not really been anywhere to be honest. I've been doing, well, real world stuff, like going to the pub, and looking after the kids, and watching telly, and going to work, and going to sleep, and you know, when it really boils down to it, not wittering on endlessly in my blog.

I've obviously been commenting on other people's blogs, and noting some of the comments on theirs. Yes, Donna and Mike, I will get around to changing my links to point at your new site. Although I particularly like this comment on Donna's site. There must be people out there sniffing around thinking "hmm — bet they won't be checking this so often now"

I've also been mucking about creating a demo website for a local boys team who my nephews play for. I don't know if they'll want it when I'm finished, because the if you want non-PHP server side technology, particularly with a bit of database access on the side, you're going to have to pay for it, and I don't really know that a local boys club is really in that sort of financial league.

...still, it's good practice really isn't it? I mean, it's part of my day job, and it's nice to do it in the evenings, particularly when my day job is more 'project managery' in nature. I've also been considering a bit more as to whether I should look more into the possibility of developing websites in the evenings etc. The theory being that if I'm going to be larking around with it anyway, the possibility of being paid becomes rather more attractive.

Or alternatively, there's my 'other domain' project. Which I've not even got as far as getting any hosting for yet because frankly I don't know if I'll ever get round to it. But again, it's something to keep me busy if I ever run out of things to do. Which I can't see happening, to be honest.

But mostly I've been doing bugger-all. But I've been doing an awful lot of that...

IP Addresses and User Agent Strings

10:17 PM

...these are a few of my favourite things!

No, wait, that wasn't it. I've just written an article on how to test for user agent strings and IP address ranges in .NET so I thought I'd create a blog entry in case anyone wanted to comment on it.

Well, do you?

As some of you may know, I'm one of the members of Accessites. I finally contributed an article to the site, describing what I look for when I'm grading a site. You're very welcome to place any comments on the article here.
