Die spammers

Been trying this. It works fairly well, except in the case of one recipient who told me, “I didn’t sign up, cos I thought it was a hoax and after I sign up, they’re gonna spam me.” 😦

And this excellent site from Ben.

And Baked Ideas was in Urban last Thursday.

And my sinuses cleared last Friday!

Dawn’s solo show What makes beautiful is on April 14.

An eventful last week.

Grid It

I’m having hiccups, Jimmy’s having a cough. We both haven’t been out much lately.
Still, not much time to surf anymore.

Grid It What a dream come true!
The umbrella story: should probably go together with the rest of the pentagram stuff. Some confused client told me they were dropping the umbrella and I believed him. Duh!
Type for you: type blog

Ah yes, dawn bought me some watercolour stuff today. I even painted something vaguely resembling a self-portrait!

Link dump

Most likely this is going to be a very disorganised post.

Some fun birthday link also via Jaffry.

Lots of CSS links on magnolia. Especially 53 CSS-Techniques You Couldn’t Live Without in particular #51. Unbelieveable. Maybe buggy but promising.

Gonna start a things to make category on the new blog. New blog will also come with three columns. New blog will be updated very often and come with lots of assorted but sorted links. New blog is a little like the new house. Nobody knows when or where it’ll happen, but we sure have lots of plans for it.
