Time Warp

The Experiment

Out of the Wood

Argh. Two weeks without the internet! How on earth did I survive? Well, alright, I saw plenty of the internet, but that’s not the point. The point is, it wasn’t on tap at all times. The point is, I couldn’t possibly have been paying much attention to ATR.

Lightbox

The short version of this post? The pictures from our trip to Canada have been relaunched with new spiffiness. The long version is a bit dull and details a n00b’s struggle with javascript.

More of the Same

I saw Ted Baillieu, new leader of Victoria’s liberal party, on the ABC news today. Really impressive fellow. I’ve never seen such dedication to sounding so completely neutral.

Under Construction

Just hold tight. Things might look a bit messy today. But hopefully, better, eventually.

New New Name

The votes are in and ignored, the decision is final. Grapefruit(s) no longer, this website is now:

ATYPICAL REVIEW

Continue reading...

atypical

Thought on Grapefruit’s new name continues apace, for the primary reason that if I’m to have any overlap at all where both urls work, it had better start soon. And I am glad to be able to tell you that we have made progress.

The Short List

Not that we won’t accept others, but a meeting was held and a short list drawn up. If everyone could nominate their favourites (and add new ones if you insist, oe provide variations on these themes) that’d be awesome.

The Method

Two assessments down, one to go. Then I’m free! FREE! Free at last! Well, free in the ‘unemployed’ sense of the word but hey.

Welcome to the Past

There’s lots of different ways to review TV. Over the years, we’ve had group reviews, we’ve had rants, we’ve had letters… It’s not usually hard to come up with something interesting when you’re watching something happen every week.

New Again

So, I was looking at the grapefruit statistics the other day, and I noticed something. Do you know, less than 1% of you have screens that are 800px wide?

New

You may notice a subtle change on the grapefruit pages. Well, all of them except these weblog ones.

And we’re Baaaaaaaaack!

Sorry about the downtime, folks. Well, sorry to those that noticed it. I’ve been using the time to sit around on my arse vaguely studying. “Vaguely studying” is when you’ve got all the study material in front of you, and occasionally you draw half a concept map, or attempt to summarise some points.

Swotting

Ah, what could possibly distract from the important task of writing essays and studying? Bearing in mind that these things must be accessible from the same places that I’m supposed to be doing work; i.e. my room.

Lies, Damned Lies

I went and installed me a nice, simple stats program the other day… allow me to summarise some of the amusements from 1 week of uptime.

Continue reading...

Evolution

Well, the switch from Movable Type to Textpattern, and merging of the blogs, seemed to go well.

Continue reading...

Subtle Differences

Don’t panic. My weblog has not eaten all the other ones. I know it looks like that, but it’s only because I haven’t made a new graphic and chosen a name for this, the new group grapefruit weblog.

Continue reading...

The Future

In the future, all the grapefruit weblogs will be combined into one, more frequently updated, weblog. Smaller posts may proliferate with interesting links.

2005

Welcome to 2005. Politically and internationally, things can only get better. Personally, if it’s half as good, I’ll be reasonably happy.

References

It’s important to cite one’s references, so I shall point out that the idea for the new touch-ups on grapefruit came from Mimicking Magazines at Standardice, which had a whole bunch of interesting CSS things.

Holy Grail

It’s hardly a revelation that in the prioritising of tasks, homework is invariably on the bottom of the ladder.

Increased Power over the Cosmos

Yes, I know, you’re all a bit bored of grapefruit redesigns, they happen every other week. But still, here’s another one for your enjoyment.

Smiley

I love tax returns. Excitingly, I’m desperately close to not having any credit card debt any more. Just one more pay period… And then I can start gaining interest instead of paying monthly fees!

Holiday’s Over

Well, that was fun. I’ve achieved a lot since I last went to University. I’ve also spent a lot of time loafing. In the future, I’d like to work things so that I at least get paid for my loafing.

Continue reading...

Intermission

I’ll be away for three days, so, no grapefruit updates for a bit.

Cheltenham

There’s been broken glass spread over the car park at Cheltenham station for AGES. I’ll swear it was there before I left.

Webstats

Ah, the joys of running the second smallest site on the internet and looking at web statistics.

Comments

Since comments are getting used quite a bit, and we’re reaching over 20 per review, I think a revision of the comments system is in order.

Continue reading...

Groovy

Saw Kill Bill Vol. 2 last night… Good, but nowhere near as rollicking and crazy. Kind of like a muted, thoughtful response to the first one.

Continue reading...

Downtime

Well, everything’s back to normal… except we lost a few comments and such. I’m afraid you’ll have to re-enter those manually if you want them back.

Continue reading...

Uncommentable

Say, you could all try a new comments system I’ve put up on the film reviews.

grapefruit v3.0

There’s, uh, been a few changes. There’ll almost certainly be teething problems, which will of course take me a while to get around to. But hey, enjoy it. Or hate it. Or be indifferent.

Eye of Harmony

Went to OPSM today, thinking of getting contacts… left convinced that I wouldn’t.

Huzzah!

Tomorrow is September 11. And we all know what that means…

iPodalicious

Sorry about the downtime today, folks, server issues. Well, obviously it wasn’t banana issues. Silly thing to say really.

Shocked, Shocked and Appalled

I managed to get the top of grapefruit to stay still in IE today, which is of course a vaguely impressive achievement.

Continue reading...

Books

Hey, look! We have a books section on Grapefruit finally! Though of course I’ve only reviewed a Doctor Who book, so it’s nothing particularly impressive.

Continue reading...

Glum and Happy

After spending a rather irritating portion of yesterday rebuilding the whole fricking articles database for grapefruit, it was refreshing and enjoyable today to install MoveableType weblog managing software instead.

…and I’m spent.

Ah… A new layout, and more importantly some new reviews to go with it! Hopefully in the future Andy and I will catch up with our Angel and Buffy reviews…

Busy Busy Busy

OK, not really. Life’s reasonably relaxing in fact, if a touch depressing in places.

The Game is Afoot

Well, I’m off to Canada at the end of the year. Isn’t THAT exciting.

Booooooring

Well, it turns out that Windows 2000 can access the .Mac iDisk as well.
