So what have we had this week? I’m still working on my new plugin, so I won’t be ready to release that just yet unless I really get a crack on. But as we all know 90% of IT projects come in late and overbuget so this is no exception.
In baby news, we Brits apparently feel pressured to buy expensive baby-related equipment in order to show off to our peers. We also prefer to dress our babies in clothes that match our own. HMM. I don’t really get that one. I certainly won’t be doing that. I’ll be dressing our baby up like a baby. Who knows why you would go and create a “minimi” as that just seems odd to me. Where’s the fun in that? Clothes-wise you should be putting baby into onesies and then as soon as baby has grown out of onesies you should be experimenting with every possible odd clothes combination possible. Oh yes.
In Google news, some folk have asked for images to be removed from the Google Street View service, citing an invasion of privacy. I honestly do not understand this mentality. Personally I’d think it was great if I appeared on a Street View scene. Unlikely at the moment as my area is just outside street view’s circle, but, still, surely it’s a piece of history, why not be recorded in it? It almost seems like some paranoia to me.
Oh, there was an about-turn on new F1 rules giving the championship to the driver with the most wins. Turns out there was some objection from the teams, and their existing rules mean that everyone already entered for a season has to agree on any rule changes. So it’s old style this year but all change for next time. So we can expect. Apparently.
Finally, ridiculous holiday complaints lists 20 complaints that were apparently lodged by actual, living, supposedly sane people. Including such gems as “The beach was too sandy”.
