KlubCatusi / Cinephilia film night at the Mac, showing HellsBelles. Previously I've seen OurManFlint and OperationKidBrother,

In 1996, Yahoo listed only 31 sites on Artificial Intelligence. Mine was one of them - http://web.archive.org/web/19961221021840/www.yahoo.com/Science/Computer_Science/Artificial_Intelligence/

Damn. I thought that was impressive. I've just checked, and their main category now lists 32 sites, and TheDataMine is still there smile - http://dir.yahoo.com/Science/computer_science/artificial_intelligence/

I think this tell us more about Yahoo than it does TheDataMine.

Still, the WaybackMachine - http://www.archive.org/index.html - is great.

Still looking for NetFame, I tried this - http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~anp* and found that it has stored 1208 files from my web pages, including pictures of my grandfather as a child - wilf_with_horse_small.jpg

Last night I saw Eastfield and TheBusStationLoonies play at the MarketTavern in Digbeth. Other local bands I've seen and liked recently include Pram , Tele:funken[+], gorgeous[*] and SpecialNeeds. Tonight I'm off to see TheBeeMen and EgoSoSo.

I also found out "What the heck is emo anyway" - http://www.fourfa.com/

[*] They actually spell it g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. but until I upgrade my WikiWiki software I can't link to that!

[+] O.K. It should be Tele:Funken - time for an upgrade... - [done, 3/3/2002]

Read the excellent "Firewall Forensics FAQ" again - http://www.robertgraham.com/pubs/firewall-seen.html It's a great guide to the kinds of traffic you can expect to see in your logs, both legitimate and not-so-legit. RobertGraham has also published an amusing and informative Hacking Lexicon - http://www.robertgraham.com/pubs/hacking-dict.html

Visited the Rijksmuseum website - http://rijksmuseum.com/ Nice site, with good explainations of features in the paintings. Looked particularly at the work of Jan Brueghel I and Pieter de Hooch. Unfortunately, the site doesn't enable you to bookmark pages in any sensible manner due to its use of frames (lose 1 web design point).

DoubleDactyls - a poem with a particular kind of rhythm. For example:


Higgeldy-Piggeldy
Christopher Isherwood
I've never heard of you
Do you exist?

My good friend Geraldine
Says you wrote "Cabaret"
Speaking quite candidly
I think she's pissed

Found these BlakesSeven quotes: http://www.allegedlyfunny.com/blakes7.quo.html - Wryly amusing if you've seen the series

Heard ChristyMoore on DesertIslandDiscs, which reminded me how good a singer he is. Found http://www.christymoore.net/ which has a great lyrics collection, and listened to some of his music - RideOn, Lisdoonvarna, BurningTimes etc.
