Poll: What Kind of Drunk Are You?

“Imagine, right, imagine the part of you that was you when you’re speaking to me, isn’t you, but that the you that’s yu when that’s happening, the real you is the you that … S–t, what was I saying? It’s all about society, isn’t it? Morality’s just … What?”

Net: Major Site Changes Across the Internet

December 11th, 2003

Well, it seems Google has admitted that there is a problem with their search engine (after all the news coverage after the “Florida Update” where lots of sites went ‘missing’ – take a look at the New Google Website and let me know what you think.

As for the BBC, well, I’m pleased to announce that as from now – I’m providing all the news for them! Don’t believe me – check http://news.bbc.co.uk yourself!

(Ok, ok – it’s a bug in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and many other browsers – but if you are on Windows you can get a patch from WindowsUpdate – thanks to CNN).

In other news – do NOT trust any links on sites or in email – that Paypal or Ebay site may not be what it seems…
