Britain, Britain, Britain...

The past 24 hours have been rather "Tom Baker"-centric; last night the team had their Christmas curry (I can heartily recommend it - I've been to Bengal City twice now) when who should pop in and descend to the basement of the restaurant, but Tom Baker? It was, erm, Tom Baker.

We were in high spirits, but didn't think to bother him; he's actually doing remarkably well for himself, having ascended to cult status since his days as the fourth Doctor Who, becoming the voice of Little Britain and several similarly surreal adverts.

Now, though, BT have snapped him up as the voice of their text service. It's great fun, but - if I'm honest - I cannot think of any practical application for it. But if you fancy sending a text to a land-line, this is the most entertaining (and only?) way to do it!

Our house.. in the middle of ourGoogle Maps have come on in leaps and bounds in recent times - it wasn't long ago that Luton was merely a fuzzy blur, and you could just about see our road. Now, though, it's improved to the point where our house, wilderness-style garden (oh, and "Big White", since the photo was taken a couple of years ago) is clearly visible.

Unfortunately, some areas still haven't had a closer view. It's not ten years, though, since you could order a photo print of the aerial view of your house - now, it's available free!

Before I go, just one more bit of news - I have had an article printed in the department newsletter. Having read it back, I'm a little over-critical, since there are brackets everywhere. I think I'd need a lot more practice before I embark on a career in journalism.

Link of the day:

  • www.pipelinecard.org : An interesting proposition, this - if they have enough subscribers to a free card, they'll negotiate cheaper petrol. I have no idea how that works. Perhaps the organizers will use the addresses they've ammassed to pop round and siphon off the petrol.
  • www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com/gallery.html : Just what I need! A gallery of.. oh, never mind. (thanks, Beth!)
