Skype me!

Skype has just gone 1.0
For all those not in the know, its a killer app. that allows you to talk just like on the phone [broadband, mic and headphones/speakers required] to your mates or family who also have d/l'd the app.
Like a vocal messenger program if you will.
If you have lots of online buddies and wanna chat with them instead of typing, check it out.

FYI l33t speak and smilies can still be sent via a little built in text messenger. w00t! :)

Yahoo announces Gmail - in China

There is a small catch though.

New Links Fantasy Football League?

It was announced a few weeks ago that 4 parts of the Beeb's internet arm were being closed. One of these was the Fantasy Football site which was a bit disappointing as I was looking forward to the start of a new season.

It turns out that it will be closing at the end of the coming season which means we have a free, decent, online, automatically scored, Fantasy Football game at our disposal. With prizes.

So should we set up a league for the New Links regulars? Leave comments below if you want in - if I get enough positive responses I'll make sure we have a league up and running for the start of the competition on August 28th.

Tinkering With Movie Endings Page

..or when will that fat faced, weak chinned munter learn to stay away from his films?

Here's the all new Return Of The Jedi ending for the DVD release - with Anakin inserted into the final screen to tie up the loose ends created by plot inconsistencies caused by the release of the early Star Wars episodes.

I was under the impression the whole story was written before the filming of eps 4-6 were filmed - so if that's the case why weren't plot inconsistencies ironed out at that stage? Or is it just that George Lucas is an indecisve prick?

Movie Title Screens Page

A large collection of almost 3,000 film title screens can be found here. Well worth a browse.

Killer Whale Flips Out

This link is to a video of a Seaworld trainer in the pool with a killer whale. He then tries to get out after it gets a bit boisterous and the killer whale decides that's just not going to happen as he hasn't finished playing yet.

I guess the moral of the story is "Don't get in the water with a killer whale".

Some old news..

As I'm on about Blair's nanny state I also have a problem with David Blunkett's announcement today that he's going to get tough on knife carrying. Sounds like something the government said years ago when a headmaster was stabbed and killed. Today's announcement is of course due to the schoolboy who was sentenced to life yesterday for the murder of another schoolboy. So just how is making carrying a knife illegal going to stop people stabbing other people? If you want to stab someone I don't suppose the illegal act of carrying a knife is going to put you off. It may have worked for guns but that's due to gun ownership being made illegal unless licensed. So are we going to need a licence to own knives?! Or is Mr Blunkett just repeating old promises that he has no intention of fullfilling? And will it make any difference anyway?

In the news today...

I've always suspected that the government's national ID card plan was just one step closer to Blair's nanny state. Not that I'm against anything that will make it easier to track criminals but the Big Brother approach just seems like it's wide open for abuse. And now it seems that some of our MPs think the same. 'Function creep' is the term used to describe fears that, despite good intentions, the national ID card will be used to do a lot more than just track criminals.

Manhunt gets more free publicity

Manhunt is on at least two front pages today and it is guilty of murder. Apparently. As if it wasn't not bad enough that it got itself banned from New Zealand it's now gone and committed a murder in this country. Well according to the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror anyway.

Yes it that's old chestnut again - video games make you kill people. Daft fsckers.

Mind you its such an important issue to the Mirror that they almost made it the same size as their Fantasy Football ad. And the Daily Mail's other main story today? They have 2(!) pages dedicated to animals on the Underground. So that makes New Links like the Daily Mail but 5 months faster and without the racialism. Yay!

Douglas Pledger : ABC

In a bid to reverse the trend of low literacy levels in this country New Links brings you yet another way to learn the alphabet.
Abey C is a new character I've drawn for this book idea 'Learn The Alphabet.' A slightly darker look at the alphabet. I will soon be doing more of these in hope to get a line published. Abey's 123 Book, Abey's Colours, Abey's Shapes, etc.
So between this one and the previous one's we've featured here, here, here and here you've got no excuse not to be learning.

Simpsons to reveal gay character

The Simpsons is going to have a character come out of the closet when Springfield legalises gay marriage and Homer becomes a minister.

So who is the gay Simpsons character?
"Speculation is already running rife across fan websites about who will be the mystery gay character, ranging from Mr Burns' devoted sidekick Waylon Smithers to one or both of Homer's sisters-in-law."
All I can say if it's Smithers it's not much of a bloody mystery - even my 10 year old daughter knows Smithers is gay.

My money's on Neddy boy but only because of his big gay moustache. But if it is going to be a mystery it's going to have to be harder than that. So I'm going to go for Mr Burns who will disappear into the sunset with Waylon.

In the news today...

A nice story especially for those Newlinkers who need to fit in linkage amongst stuff they're supposed to be doing and getting paid for. Corinne Maier, a senior economist at Electricité de France, wrote a book about The Art and the Importance of Doing the Least Possible at the Workplace and now her employer is taking disciplinary action. Too bloomin' right I say. The nerve of some people. Of course NewLinkers are highly efficient work motivated multi-tasking individuals who can create linkage for our readers perusal whilst simultaneously debugging 10,000,000 lines of badly commented code. Probably.

In the news today...

11 reasons to sack Sven from the Daily Mail. Reason number one being that Sven isn't the honest, cosmopolitan man of honour and integrity that we thought we'd hired. He's just a "money-grabbing, multi-national chancer". And for once I'm not bothered by the tabloids favourite sport - England manager assassination. He may be after the money (aren't they all?) but he's still a good football coach and he's shagged Ulrika. What's the problem? Errm? We didn't win Euro 2004. Errm? What's unusual about that? We wiz robbed. Again. Sack the manager.

Buck up boyo, you're Anne Robinson!

When you're not offending the Welsh or stupid Americans on the dumbed-down transatlantic version of your hate-filled, lowest common denominator gameshow, you're being mean to people and pulling the legs off injured animals. We've seen you.

Frankly, all this anger would be best directed towards evil corporations, which you did for a while at the helm of the BBC's Watchdog programme - the only show infinitely better with you on it. As it is, you've suddenly become a multi-million-dollar institution, spawning clones in hundreds of countries, presumably all winking in that terrifying "I look cuddly now, but I can hurt you. Oh yes, I can hurt you bad" way.

Maybe you're ultra-famous, but you'll always be a B-list celebrity in our eyes. At least you're not writing for the Daily Mail any more.

Where in the world...


Where in the world was ILuvNUFC?
There is a brilliant prize on offer for the winner

I'm off somewhere very early in the morning so you will not hear from me until teatime when i shall post another in the series.

Follow up: Technorati redesign

After the whinge this afternoon it's only fair to point out that searches are working again.

Now we can talk about the redesign. Oooh it's lovely. That should cover it.

Preparing for Emergencies

I haven't got my copy of the Government's new guide for coping with a terrorist attack yet so I'm glad it's online. I wouldn't have known how to cope with getting infected with something deadly. Now I do. The official advice is to find Cannon and Ball with the aim of infecting them. Sterling plan.

This is an excellent parody of the official site. Too excellent it seems - some governmental busybody has written to complain that it may confuse people. Pah spoilsports. But Thomas Scott says he isn't taking it down. Yay! He'd just better watch out for eager to make amends and show they're not very crap after all secret service types with brollies full of poison. Probably.

Dogs in thongs

Nope our Dogs hasn't started a new career as a laydees underwear model though he is open to offers! The Dogone Thong is a fart deodoriser for dogs. It's basically a strip of charcoal to wrap around your dog's bum. I find just kicking the smelly bugger out of the house is just as effective and much cheaper.

Free Music

GarageBand.com is a site that allows members of unsigned bands to upload demo tracks and have them voted on by you. According to the blurb 14 bands have signed major deals since the site started although I can't find any details other than the claim.

There is a huge amount of material here and some of it has to be good if only by the law of averages. The music is broken up by genre so there is punk, rock, r'n'b (rhythm and bass rather than proper r'n'b but they do have a blues section), pop, dance etc etc.

via linkfilter

Band To Band Links

This is quite cool. It's like a Kevin Bacon thingummyjig but for bands rather than people. Put in the name of 2 bands (700+ in database so far) and this page will attempt to link them via band members that have appeared in other bands. So for instance did you know the Small Faces are only 19 degrees of separation away from Blink 182?

Can you pick Michael Jackson's nose?

The quiz is actually called 'Do you know Michael's Nose?' but New Links is in favour of bogey related punnage hence the title.

You get 15 pictures of noses and you have to guess whether it's Wacko's or not. I got 10 out 15.

Look out for a flood of emails telling us we are spamming the world!

Technorati Redesign

Technorati has come out of beta and has a new look to boot. Lots of other blogs are talking about the Technorati redesign. There are a lot of sites out there taking about how nice it looks - have they actually used it or just loaded the page? It seems to be badly broken.

Searches haven't worked since yesterday and the link to profiles just stopped working. I needed to go and get some new code. Not a huge problem but it would be nice if they could have let users know that the links they have back to Technorati are useless. Oh and New Links was no longer registered as belonging to anyone - I had to reclaim it. And now I can't log in at all. At least when Blogger rolled out their redeisgn it came with loads of new features and took a while to settle down. Technorati seems to have introduced no new features just a new skin so what's their excuse?

Still not to worry - it looks nice.

A Case of the Crabs

No b3ta newsletter this week to plunder from as they seem to think just because it's summer they are allowed time off! Pah. Lazy slackers. :)

Anyhoo they've put up a couple of links in lieu of a newsletter and one of them is "A Case of the Crabs" which is a pointy-clicky adventure like Monkey Island. This is a black and white 'film noir' detective story and looks pretty good. It also features Dogs playing Mahjong so it has something for everyone. Well everyone except Dogs himself as it seems a bit light on pr0n.

Oh did I mention it was made by otters? Clever little fsckers.

BugMeNot says "bring it on"

BugMeNot now requires users to register. Don't worry though as this only applies to web weasels
"If you are an employee, partner, affiliate or legal representative of any site which enforces compulsory user registration then we require you to complete our registration process. It costs nothing to register and will only take a moment."
The form required is pretty big (although I have seen actual registration forms even bigger than that) and the questions are fairly silly. Revenge is sweet! ;)

BugMeNot are also asking non registration sites to add the following to their TOS:
Any subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, or employees of any site employing compulsory user registration mechanisms are not authorized to access the content or services of this site.
which would effectively make it illegal for say NY Times reporters to use the web if everybody did it. New Links may well have a one paragraph TOS in place tonight!

More on BugMeNot here and here.

Patrick Kluivert - your thoughts

NUFC.com asked readers to email in their views on Newcastle United signing Patrick Kluivert. The link is to the first selection they've published.

For what it's worth I've wanted Kluivert to come to the toon for a few years now and it always seemed on the cards. But more recently it was Beattie who seemed to be our target and I had gradually warmed to and eventually liked that idea. I'm definitely not complaining though as Kluivert is world class - and we'll buy Beattie next summer when we are preparing for the Champion's League. ;)

I know Kluivert hasn't been as good recently as he has been in the past but I'm sure him and Shearer are going to be absolute magic together. Just as well Dogs isn't around as we'd now have a slanging match. Yay!

Uncle Sam Needs You

...and he's going to give you free boobies to persuade you to join up.

The US military have announced that cosmetic surgery will be available free of charge to it's service men and women and their families. This includes breast jobs, nose jobs, liposuction and face lifts. So if you're too poor to afford it just join the Army. Yay. Oh hang on you might get shot at. Boo!

Was the moonlanding faked?

I don't know but one of the most common proofs given is that stars can't be seen in any of the photographs from the Apollo missions. The just weren't looking properly! Someone has taken some of the Apollo 11 pics and processed them through photoshop (tm blah blah!) and has found stars are visible in the sky.

So was it faked? This guy thinks not but a really convincing argument that it was faked can be found here. Just don't let this bloke hear you saying it!

Francis Grose's Dictionary Of The Vulgar Tongue, 1811

Always aiming to provide a public service New Links pushes the earliest boundary of the history of swearing in the UK from 1900 to 1811 with the discovery of Francis Grose's Dictionary Of The Vulgar Tongue. Direct link to a plain text version here.

Includes such gems as
MADGE. The private parts of a woman.
WHORE PIPE. The penis.
BUSHEL BUBBY. A full breasted woman.
Yay for historic swearing!

The history of swearing in the UK

Exactly what it says on the tin. Well almost. It's subtitled "Last Century's Great Moments in Swearing" so while it features such classic firsts as:
1936
Music hall comedian Hector Thaxter becomes the first man to say "Arse" on the radio.
it doesn't go earlier than 1900.

What a rip!

Newcastle has been chosen to host a World Cup qualifier between England and Azerbaijan in March 2005.This good news has been tempered by the fact that the cockney scum over at Old Trafford will get to host the other 4 games!! When exactly did Manchester become the centre of England?
The reason given for the two grounds that have been chosen is the fact that they are the biggest in the country.It's all down to FA greed, the games could be shared with other cities such as Birmingham or Liverpool.The only problem is the FA will not get as much gate money.So what's a few quid compared to keeping a fresh atmosphere which you would get if the games were spread around and giving more people their last chance to see England in a quality game outside stinking London.It's only fair the games should be held outside London because when the new Wembley stadium is built the rest of England will never see another international game, but that's another argument.

The UK Independence Party has decided to deal with women's issues. Godfrey Bloom, their new MEP for Yorkshire and Humber is concerned about women "Because I just don't think they clean behind the fridge enough". He also went on to say that no right minded businessman would ever employ a woman of child bearing age.
I'm not sure what to make of UKIP, maybe they're having a laugh but I'm sure they're up to no good. I suspect they appeal to anyone who would like to bring back hanging, national service, corporal punishment, ban immigration and, if Mr Humber has his way, to put women back in the kitchen. No doubt they appeal to those who are too embarrassed to vote BNP.

A site modelled on the iTunes site is also promised so they can download fresh course content.

Jammy bastards. We were lucky to get photocopied handouts of very bad handwriting at the poly University of Northumbria @ (it's bound to be an @ these days!) Newcastle.

Follow Up: Diamonds and getting rich quick

We've had diamonds and getting rich quick. How about getting rich quick by finding a diamond which is 4 times the size of the Hope diamond? Sounds like a plan to me.

More nano nano stuff.

And not a Mork in sight. Dogs mention of how to get rich quick yesterday got us mentioned on Howard Lovy's NanoBot blog which has lots more nanotechnology news and links.

More Fox News

After the making of the Outfoxed documentary and the release of the Fox memo's legal moves are afoot to strip Fox of their "Fair and Balanced" slogan as it is patently not true.

Diamonds are a boy's best friend. Apparently.

So some fashion expert has decided that male jewelry jewellery (darn yankee spelling) is the new black. Just as well we have The Gropenator Governor Schwarzenegger to sort out the girly men.

How to catch student's cheating in pub quizzes

Apparently some New Zealand schoolkids have developed a gadget that will detect sneaky mobile phone use - that'll catch the cheating fsckers.

Arial Sharon has invited French Jews to move back to Israel so as to avoid "the wildest anti-semitism". How bad can France's anti-sematic problem be when the safer option is to move to a country torn by conflict and where anti-sematism takes the form of suicide bombers on a regular basis?

MP3Blogs Aggregator or 'let the mp3s come to you'

I was talking to ILuvNufc the other week about how easy it would be to do an auto updated mp3 blog which continually scraped other mp3 blogs for new posts. Now there's no need for any effort on our part as MP3Blogs Aggregator has been launched.

It looks like it use the same code as the UKBlogs Aggregator. There aren't many mp3 blogs listed yet but that should change. They could also do with tidying up the list of blogs they already have as a couple I clicked were decidedly mp3 free.

Bembo's Zoo

We've had an evil animal alphabet but this one is just an animal alphabet. Confused? Bembo's Zoo consists of animals made of the letters that make their names up. So for instance for letter M there is a picture of a monkey made from the letters m,o,n,k,e and y.

Dog Island Free Forever

woof!Have you sorted out your holiday destination for this year Dogs? If not I may have found the perfect spot for you. Dog Island where dogs are free forever apparently.

The idea is that your dog is released to become feral and live a free life feasting on rabbits (and according to the 'high strung' question in the FAQ each other every now and then!), forming packs, sniffing each others arses and pooping everywhere.

In the news today...

Tony Blair decides to get tough on anti social behaviour. Which to me seems to be another attempt to persuade us all to sign up to big brother style identity cards so that we can track the worst offenders. Still, I'm all for exterminating with extreme prejudice any students who bend windscreen wipers and wing mirrors whilst staggering home from their latest grant wasting p!ss up.

Blink 182 tickets for Newcastle

Contrary to popular opinion there are some tickets left for the Blink 182 concert. At least two people I know were under the impression it was totally sold out. Fortunately for them this is not the case. Unfortunately for them they are for the seated areas but it's better than nowt - just not as good as our tickets!
