Towards a Practical Theology of Peer Review

  • it’s good to finally see some rigour in theology.

Centaur Technology

Apr 10, 2008

Via davej: “There are no managers at Centaur. Instead, employees report to Centaur founder and President, Glenn Henry”.

There are 85 employees there according to Google. It sounds like living hell to me. Maybe all of those people are both really competent and really nice, but I find it a bit difficult to believe.

Dear Threadless

Dear Threadless, isn’t it really, really stupid that it’s impossible to see the designs in your T-shirt lists?

Diana fan

What I find most surprising about this guy:

is not that he spent 6 months of his life listening in on the Diana inquest with stuff scrawled over his face, but that he’s not a Diana conspiracist!

Open source Windows like Open source Solaris?

Apr 8, 2008

etbe: I’m confused by your comments in that opinion article - were you misquoted? How did “advised by your lawyer not to look at code” become “OpenSolaris isn’t FOSS” ? BTW, whenever you ask a lawyer a can-I question, they’ll always tell you no :) I’m presuming you’re not willing to share the details of this legal opinion.

Lazy Ad Exec Scum

Apr 7, 2008

OK, maybe scum is a little over the top, but I really do hate how lazy advertisers are.
Current bone of contention being this advert:

Now, whilst I don’t think the Mighty Boosh crimping thing is at all funny, it’s still really annoying they would blatantly rip it off like this. Just as bad is the Berocca ad. Their player doesn’t seem to work, but it totally rips off the infamous OK Go video:

(I was also going to moan about the Crusha advert, but turns out Joel actually did that one, so fair enough.)

Dear Television

Apr 7, 2008

Probably the best short programme there is: Dear Television. I love the natural eccentricity of
the type of person who would not only write to the BBC about some minor thing about a TV
programme, but choose as their bone of contention the parking practices of fictional police drivers.

Annoyingly it’s not on iPlayer, or even anywhere else. Bah.
