Data collection

I’ve found the exams I’ve taken this year to be really quite intense and it turns out that the closer it gets to the day itself, and the more intense the revision is, the less room I have in my head for anything else. Whether that is writing on my own blog, connecting with people on Twitter, keeping up with news online, or listening to podcasts, everything comes to a grinding halt.

The alphabet in your browser game

The alphabet in your browser game

I heard about a game you can play within your browser, in which you begin to type in the URL bar, and see what site comes up as the first suggested for each letter of the alphabet. I thought I’d give it a spin and see what mine were. In Chrome, it seems to be a cross between most visited and latest viewed as well. amazon.co.uk bbc.co.uk/iplayer caterhamf1.com dooce.com (bit odd, haven’t looked at this one for a while, not since there was just a blatant ad as a post, but I guess I don’t visit that many d’s) espnf1.

Another Firefox extension I have just found has made my day, and I must spread the word. It’s quite simple: Copy Link Text.

This should be filed under: Things You Didn’t Realise You Needed Until You Found Them.

From high to low

I was mega happy this afternoon after watching Tim Henman win his match - it had everything you could ever want, a Brit, some diving and some swearing, and a sulky Delta Goodrem, she’s famous you know! There was also a little bit of tennis going on as well… Now, I will talk to you about iTunes. I want to recommend it to each and every one of you. I scoffed when he first couldn’t sit still for the excitement about it, but now I couldn’t agree more.

A browser update

A browser update

I was cajoled into downloading Firefox for the Mac and I moaned quite a lot about doing this (mostly because it was heading towards midnight and I was flagging in the energy stakes) and I was grumpy and said it was “okay”. I now, however, want to say “Strike that, reverse it” a la Gene Wilder, because it is actually a really good browser. Get yours here and spread the word.
