Cheap HD ready Aerial (Antenna for US visitors)

This guy just straps sometin foil to a plank of wood and wires it into his TV...

OK its slightly more complicated than that - he has a motor on it to turn it around in his loft - but its an upgrade over the signal he got from a shop bought one.

anyone else know how to make stuff that works better than shop bought?


I have hair issues. Its very long and I have no interest in keeping it tidy. I also have no interest in giving away a bunch of ££££'s in getting it cut. I have a choice of combing it tidy, leaving it grow longer (outwards) or (s)trimming it myself ....

Unexpected day

Wow, nothing special happened.

I didnt move a bed or wardrobe.

I didnt give anyone a bunch of kitchen equipment.

I didnt get kicked in the groin.

I didnt win the pools, lottery or bingo.

I did buy a big bottle of beer - mmmmmmmm.

I did wash up the dishes from last night - that unexpectedly took an hour.

I did cook dinner

I did clean out the truck.

I didnt go for a bike ride.

I didnt do any overtime

I loves Republican peoples!

via Why, That's Delightful! by Graham on 17/09/08

A 29 year old Republican got himself drugged and robbed by a prostitute during the RNC. Nothing unusual there, I hear you say. Republicans and prostitutes go together like gin and tonic. But, you see, what's really delightful is the haul. Oh, my, the haul! It's quite a list!

"The haul included a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring, a necklace valued at
$5,000, earrings priced at $4,000 and a Prada belt valued at $1,000,
police said."

Ah, me! The Republicans really do represent the man on the street, don't they?

'"It's embarrassing to admit that I was a target of a crime. I was
drugged and had about $50,000 of personal items stolen, not the
inflated number that the media is reporting from an inaccurate police
report," he said.'

So–not a hundred and twenty thousand! That's a ridiculous inflated number! It was only fifty thousand dollars worth of things you wear around your wrist and neck!

Hurray! Hurray for every last aspect of this story!

wednesday mystery #2

Who messed with my keyboard?

wednesday mysterty #1

right, I have been awake since 4:18; lying in bed thinking about all sorts of crap that fills my life and not being able to sleep. If that is the case, how has it taken me until 8:30 to get out of bed, bath, shave, eat my breakfast and drive 30 minutes to work?

Thats FOUR hours.

Still, on the flip-side in four hours time it will be dinner time.

Sainsbury's punts 'Innocent kids juices' for £2.99 • The Register

Sainsbury's punts 'Innocent kids juices' for £2.99 • The Register: "Yup, we're thinking the same as you: How on God's Green Earth can an organisation as big as Sainsbury's fail to spot the missing apostrophe here? That's 'Innocent kid's juices' or 'Innocent kids' juices' - depending on how many innocent kids have been milked for their juices."

Love it and Loathe it in equal amounts, just wish it was more of a smooth ride. I would like the middle ground, not too great, not too shabby. Mediocre if you like, but consistently mediocre.
