Modern web design

Luckily, I’ve inherited Malcolm‘s CSS design, so I didn’t suffer too much getting this site looking presentable.

Die Cast Films

Alex Mallinson from X-Bam (the genius behind the 2CV spoof advert) and his brother have teamed up to form Die Cast Films, with their first mini-film ‘Die-Cast’ released on the site. Definitely worth watching both for the inevitable humour and excellent technical achievement. Amazing what you can do with a video camera, some imagination and a lot of talent!

The War on Weather

Bush Declares War. Resources No Limit

Following last week’s assault on New Orleans by hurricane Katrina, President Bush Jnr has formally declared war on weather. In a Whitehouse statement today, he said that all military resources necessary would be made available for this new campaign, which was essential for ensuring the country’s future security.

When questioned about the exact nature and purpose of declaring war on an abstract concept, as opposed to a tangible enemy, he cited the war on terror. The comment silenced the critics.

Senior U.S. intelligence agencies have already identified a number of possible targets. It is understood that the U.K., a U.S. former ally, is known to harbour a considerable quantity of weather, and this is likely to be the U.S.’s first target. Experts disagree over the likely nature of the first strike. Some believe Bush is likely to order a blanket bombing of the U.K. to ensure all pockets of weather are destroyed, others suggest a more targeted attack using cruise missiles against the Met. Office. Critics of the latter theory argue that the Met. Office have rarely demonstrated any actual knowledge regarding weather, and such an attack would have little effect.
