This was the Week that Was, Vol. 28

Or, the “I’m really just calling this one in” edition. πŸ™‚

First up, a note about the design of the blog. I’ve just upgraded to IE7 – y’all might not have realised this, but I actually have a left sidebar. Unfortunately, you can’t see that right now…it’s on my list for tomorrow to do; we’ll see how far I get…

Posts I liked

  • From Sydney Daily Photo, a look at Boxing Day – sitting on the couch, watching the cricket. I know that on Christmas night, I was sitting on the couch watching a movie (actually 2), and then listening to ABC’s cricket coverage, probably around the same time the photo was taken. πŸ™‚
  • More cricket, with the whole world seemingly having been turned upside down with the banning of Harbajhan “Bhajji” Singh for three tests for supposedly calling Andrew Symonds “monkey”, which is quite the offensive term, especially for the only non-white on the team. Thanks to The Corridor (owned by one of Cricinfo’s main writers), there are some photos of the effigies that Indian fans have made. Also, there is some content to chew on about what has not been going on in Sydney.
  • Continuing the sport theme, comes this dispatch from Full Throttle, which reports that longtime NASCAR writer (and funny guy) Ed Hinton has been sacked from his job at Tribune Newspapers just 6 weeks before the Daytona 500. I bet he’ll land a new job soon.
  • Andrew G spreads the word about Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe. I’ve seen a few episodes of this show, and I have to say that it’s excellent TV about TV, if you’re into that kind of thing πŸ˜‰
  • Lastly, something a bit happier from the Subcontinent, a version of Sweet Child o Mine played on Indian instruments, found on Neatorama.

Around the Blog

I did an impromptu movie review of Bubble Boy, after spotting it on TV. Also, I showed you how to change the address that FeedBurner gets your feed from, told you why not to shop at home sometimes, and rang in a resolution-free New Year.

This week, I’ll take a day out to show off my first redesign of a blog template; it’s nothing major, but it’s a first for me. πŸ˜‰ Also, I’m sure that I’ll be inspired to do some more how-to guides, and I’ll leave you with a reminder that if you have something that you want to know how to do, drop me a line πŸ˜‰

One thought on “This was the Week that Was, Vol. 28

  1. You might not be able to see the left sidebar, but I can see it just fine on Vista, Firefox and 1280×800 screen resolution. I highly recommend Firefox, as IE 7 drove me exponentially crazier than any previous version of IE managed to do.
