Well, what are you waiting for - Christmas?


Wanna learn dog? Read on...
Japanese toy maker launches Dog to English translation device to find out if little Bobby really is stuck down the well. Lassie outraged.
Takara Co. Ltd., a Tokyo-based toy manufacturer, recently announced the US release of their Dog to English translation device. Dubbed the Bowlingual (no, really), the device deciphers what your dog has really been trying to say to you all these years. Most likely, "no thank you, I'd rather have steak", or "fetch it yourself, you lazy...".

Went to London Knights last ever game at the Docklands Arena last night to witness a crushing defeat of the Bracknell Bees in a final ISL playoff game before their trip to Nottingham this coming weekend. I couldn't help thinking that with the wage cap of the Elite League, set to take over from the ISL as the UK's highest level of hockey, being so much lower, I am really going to miss that quality of play.

Photos should be up tonight.

Just bought meself a Thompson DTI1000 digital TV set-top box. Appears to work fine - neat considering this area can't receive digital TV according to the postcode checker. I did invest in a stonkin great new aerial first, though - I doubt it would have worked with what I had before. Picture quality varies wildly - on some channels its superb (DVD-like) but others are marginal. I don't like the Teletext service.

Price was £99.50 from John Lewis (although you can't buy STBs on line!).

Currently watching Edward Scissorhands on Channel 4 in widescreen.
