It’s been quite a dubstep month for me music-wise…This is my top 5 playlist for the month.
It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend coming up and whilst I’m no particular fan of the monarchy – I do appreciate the extra day off. Other people however, all around the country, are going nuts for it – stringing up triangles of cloth and covering everything in flags… Would jubileeve it?
The Olympic Torch Relay runs from the 19th May to 27th july. Over those 70 days, 8,000 torch bearers will take the torch within a hours drive of 95% of us.

Since the retirement of the Shuttle Program last year, America has no means of launching astronauts into space. In addition to hitching lifts on Russian rockets, they’ve been looking to the private sector to resupply the International Space Station (ISS). There are two contracted firms in the running: Space X and Orbital Sciences Corp – both have been given NASA-size contracts to help with keep the ISS stocked.
A friend and I once made up a drinking version of the classic Monopoly game one bored evening. It went on to become a Leed Uni smash…well Boddington Hall anyway – I recently found the rules in an old folder….
The high court ruling forcing ISPs to block The Pirate Bay finally affected me today.

Normally a group of us head off down to Devon for the Bank Holiday to do some camping next to the beach in the sun…but this year, there was only 6 of us and the weather was looking pretty miserable so we decided to pimp it up a bit and rent a cottage by the coast. We’d left it quite late and were struggling with finding a decent one that was available, but then we fortunately stumbled upon the Riverside Penthouse in Bideford.

Integrating a search engine into a website can be as easy as a single click (E.g. using a search plugin for a WordPress blog) or so complicated it requires months of development effort (E.g. for customising an existing search engine for your own needs).
