And you thought you drank a lot at christmas!

So what do you do when you have over a thousand empty beer bottles and a free afternoon? Well, personally I think I'd be recovering from the worst hangover of my life. Some people make a youtube video that i just thought was cool.

Dropbox - Like an online USB drive but better

Righty ho then, this is a little service/application/thing that I have been using for a couple of months now. Basically, its one folder that sits in your My Documents, /home/you, or whatever it is on a mac. Whatever you put in this folder is synced to the interweb and any other computers when you have dropbox installed and running. I use it to keep all my current work backed up and synced... you can also share files really quickly with friends using it.

A free account gives you 2Gb free storage and the file size limit is 100MB. Not bad for free!

Jizz In My Pants.... Yeah, you did read that right.

A friend of a friend suggested this, I just thought it would be two girls one cup sort of thing and made the search with some apprehension!

Anyway, Here it is. There seem to have been some issues with embedding the video, but it works here, enjoy... the blurb below is from some website... I couldn't be bothered to paraphrase!

'Jizz in my Pants, a new song from Lonely Island about exactly what you think its about made its debut on Saturday Night Live (SNL) Saturday.

Lonely Island is Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, and the clip includes cameos from Molly Sims, Jamie-Lynne Sigler and Justin Timberlake. Samberg previously worked with Timberlake for “Dick in a Box.”

If songs like Jizz in My Pants tickle your fancy (no pun intended), it’s the first single from The Lonely Island’s debut album Incredibad due out February 2009.'

T-Shirt Folding - Origami Style

I'm a big fan of Lifehacker.com. I may have seen this on their website, or somewhere else first, but this is a truely useful Lifehack. I use it everytime I need to fold a T-Shirt and its proof that being a geek can be useful... Plus, its really easy, you only need your hands and said clothing!

Enjoy.

Bravely Bouncing on the Bloggerising Bandwaggon

Right then, first things first, don't expect too much greatness from this first post. The only reason I'm doing it is because I set up this account in an insomnia induced stupor very early this morning... I thought I should make the page at least look fumbled at a party, if not loved!... and now I'm sat in the University of Manchester's Library, avoiding work and dipping my toes into the world of bloggerising rather than going outside where it looks decidedly cold and wet! 

There will be one common theme to this blog, basically stuff I like. This could be anything. If current pastimes are anything to go by, included topics could be , juggling, laser physics, geeky computer stuff, some cool new gadget, ways to make electricity from the sun, fire poi, how to fold a T-shirt the lazy way.... the list goes on. But hopefully some things will be of interest to other people along the way.

But for now I will say adieu and brave the lovely British weather. Inabit.
