Klub Catusi / Cinephilia film night at the Mac, showing Hells Belles. Previously I've seen Our Man Flint and Operation Kid Brother,

In 1996, Yahoo listed only 31 sites on Artificial Intelligence. Mine was one of them -

Damn. I thought that was impressive. I've just checked, and their main category now lists 32 sites, and The Data Mine is still there smile -

I think this tell us more about Yahoo than it does The Data Mine.

Still, the Wayback Machine - - is great.

Still looking for Net Fame, I tried this -*/* 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 The Bus Station Loonies play at the Market Tavern in Digbeth. Other local bands I've seen and liked recently include Pram , Tele:funken[+], gorgeous[*] and Special Needs. Tonight I'm off to see The Bee Men and Ego So So.

I also found out "What the heck is emo anyway" -

[*] They actually spell it g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. but until I upgrade my Wiki Wiki 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 - It's a great guide to the kinds of traffic you can expect to see in your logs, both legitimate and not-so-legit. Robert Graham has also published an amusing and informative Hacking Lexicon -

Visited the Rijksmuseum website - 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).

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

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 Blakes Seven quotes: - Wryly amusing if you've seen the series

Heard Christy Moore on Desert Island Discs, which reminded me how good a singer he is. Found which has a great lyrics collection, and listened to some of his music - Ride On, Lisdoonvarna, Burning Times etc.
