according to channel 4's 100 best cartoons the flintstones stopped being made in 1973. and wilmur once asked betty how fred and barney managed to bollocks everything up. I'm glad i learnt something today
Such a wonderful website. Such fantastic pictures. Pity about the guestbook, but you can't have everything.
Make sure he doesn't pick up any bad habits, he's very impressionable.
brilliant, don't fatten him up too much, his appeal depends on his slim flexible frame. Shame he skipped the US west on his way over, maybe he could go to the Azores on his way back to the UK
The yellow plastic bag tag known affectionately as Tony has touched down in Philadelphia. He is rumoured to be suffering from jet-lag at the moment, but promises to post soon when he has recovered, and binged on cream cheese.
Without a floppy disk drive in the house that might prove rather tricky...technology, tssssssssssss
I might see what essays I have on floppy, they can be added to the essay section of your site to benefit the world at large.
Do either of you have computer copies? Since the death of my laptop I have been without one, and would like one, although I'm not entirely sure why...
It's only temporary, two month contract with a defence company. So at least I get to deal with restricted information, even if not in a very engaging way.
Especially if you're a Chennaian living in Delhi.

the word on msn is that Andy has a job! Given that the word on msn comes from Mr Taylor himself it might very well be true.
Snow ISN'T frozen rain. Would you believe it?!
There's still no snow by the way, sleet all day despite what we were promised.
So, I spent today recreating all my work from Monday.
And then the server came back to life again.
The server crashed crashed at work and took all of Monday's work with it.
Worse still, I actually did some work on Monday.
Waking up to a sparse smattering of the stuff. My hopes are firmly pinned on tomorrow.
Hey,Nice collection of pics.I was searching for some pics from the Chennai ATP open and I landed in your site.Keep up the gud work ;-)
for the brief 10 minutes of my cycle into the department, then nothing
utterly pathetic, and all gone now. Looking reasonably good for thursday though.
Oh, sorry, that would be a month's wages.
I can't believe they're allowed to get rid of the tube. Shouldn't it be a listed package?
Some amazingly cheap flights on offer ex-India with Sri Lanka until the end of March... London for 250 quid return, Tokyo 180 quid, Hong Kong 150 quid, Kuala Lumpur/Male (Maldives) 100 quid.
Have I got sufficient holiday though...
You are quite right Richard; (do people often say that?). The obscure and bizarre are clearly infectious.
I see Andy has been to Dungeness; I guess in search of bird life. Was he aware that the walking tour of this area as found on www.walkingworld.com was written by none other than our host MM.
i would like to quote Googlism:
"richard mann is guilty of nothing more than talking"
that obviously seems a bit obscure!

curse that nihilistic vibe (but dig that utterly point-free existence groove!)
any chance you can record it? I have physics dinner tomorrow night, the unmissable social event of the year
That was directed at the silent millions who I assume read the guestbook.
A preview for Crawley v. Morecambe is already doing the rounds on Sky Sports News, even those of you with freeview can watch that. Don't forget to watch the big game tomorrow night if you possibly can!
Only 9 sites across the UK...
I claim Dungeness, Sizewell and Sellafield.
Amazing place. Don't get anything like that in India. Also experienced the biting northerly wind that all other biting northerly winds were named after.
weren't the inhabitants of this guestbook once accused of "bizarre and obscure" messages
We are back from the Isle of Wight. It was odd. We went to all the trouble of getting injections on Tuesday and a visa on wednesday and the IOW authorities never once asked about them. Even more shicking the cowes did not seem to be sacred.
then the question must be:
when shall we 3 (and mr bell) trade wheat again?
i'll be in Crawley, ready to come and drive in a highly careless manner around you
How many months wages for that one? I see there's no India/Pakistan test in Chennai...
On a different not, snookers governing body as annouced that Jimmy White who has changed his name to Brown by deed poll will not be refered to as James Brown at tornament.
"Jimmy White entered the Masters by that name and will continue to be known by that name during the tournament," said a statement from World Snooker.
"He will be called Jimmy White by referees and television commentators."
White told the BBC last week that he changed his name in order to help the game recover from its financial problems.
The statement added: "The name Jimmy Brown will only be used in relation to his promotional activities with HP Sauce, sponsors of the brown ball during the tournament."
of wildly ineffcient and sloppy programming, the pacal code fwell2.p will be in the work section of my website
on the snooker Jimmy Brown is still being referred to as Jimmy White. And I haven't heard anyone nominate the HP brown ball
I found that i'd been using formulae for a well of width 2a rather than a. But by then i'd made another correction that meant i was no longer just a factor of 2 out!
For the uninitiated, roots=solutions, being out by a factor of 10^10 is bad, and being out by a factor of two is good.
my program can find them at last. I had a numerical problem (my a was out by a factor of 10^10!)
so far the a iteration has got within a factor of 2 of the expected widths
matt stop wasting money........
i had no difficulty accessing julianes site and thought she had some good pictures.....
it amazes me that anyone normal writes in your guestbook at all......
I'm very disappointed by the fact that Juliane's website doesn't work and I can't see her pictures. She must be the first real visitor for months.
and there was nothing there...how sad.
How much do these pieces of prime virtual estate cost?
The great domain expedition resulted in the purchase of seven domain names, including matt.in, breathe.in, viol.in and sachintendulkar.in.
Now to flog them on ebay...
that No1 on googling barry bridges is his FFAC page? Whatever happened to the rodeo bar?
He had a nice time in Pondicherry apparently, and is looking forward to his trip to Philadelphia...lucky tie!
But still, it's another best ever, however many games they've played...

very nice site with wonderful photos, i especially liked the ones from czech republic. if you like you can see some of my photos at:
more groundbreaking research, from the people who brought you "men can drink more than women" and "people are happier in summer"
I love you so much I can hardly put it into words...
he should pop home every now and again to regale us with his tales of a more exotic exciting life
Globetrotter extraordinaire. Let him travel the world forever!
Including a collection of 'weird and wonderful' roads, such as the mythical A361...
a) I can't believe it exists,
but b) surely road bagging is on the same level as postcode bagging?
the message "typical mathmo, which is 1 after the beginning of a sequence of 25 messages without my input. That must be a record. Lucky to see 2 these days
How proud I am to be a member.
Both of you: www.emilianatorrini.com listen to the sample video, I'm sure you'll like it.
Tonight I have live Polish music in a village hall in deepest Sussex, it promises to be very strange.
"How does internet technology as a tool promotes competitive edge of advantage to an organizations or businesses?"
i need 2, so don't let your unemployable status hold you back mr taylor
aside from the fun issue, i do have a preference for matthew, as then i can put something in the job section :)
Who wants to be my referee. They demand someone unrelated who's known me for 3 yrs+, not a teacher or employer
Matthew, Andy, anyone?
(I think it would be fun to make them phone India!)
Lets go see some cheap snooker. I want to see Jimmy Brown. Do you think some other suitably coloured company could sponsor the village with 3 corners? How about Jennifer "custard and mustard" yellow hat?
but Paris turned out to be an unfortunate dream. They wanted me to freelance for them contacting firms who might be interested in their work from the UK.
I have to phone Paris. If theres no job at the end of it I'm going to curcse my phone bill
I remember "just do what you enjoy and what your good at". That worked well with theoretical and atmospheric physics. If i'd done geophysics i might have a job now
"You don't want to do computer science, do physics and you'll be able to get an IT job" thanks Mr Lowles!
"Everyones crying out for physicists" whoever said that clearly hadn't tried being a physicist
"With physics you could go into engineering" No
I could go on, but i won't, i think the point is made. I have been reduced to considering a job with the met offices army units, which you don't even strictly require a degree for.
I've done finals papers in less time than these job applications take, I've been more enthused by finals papers, i've even looked forward to them more.
Will they have nominate the HP Brown ball?
of making bizarre and obscure allusions.
Still, as Tony would say...WHAAALE! Is it not true Matthew, that treacle tart IS the best pudding in the world? Frankly there are some issues here with honesty that realy ought be be resolved
I think Tony does well to read at all; actually I don't know why I write such messages as they merely encourage your inanities; i suppose its escapism; ie better than real life/WORK!
I liked The Life of Pi. It made a nice change from The Book of Darkness.
yes i have read the life of pi.... at the time of reading had not heard of pondy so the reference made no impact .... i thought the book was irritating rubbish .... you? whoever you are???
I can't believe the appearance of Tony in Chennai 365 hasn't warranted a mention on here.
Application to Shell finished. My advice is not to start an application there, you might feel you should finish and you'll lose a day
If the day, month and year 24 hours ago match the day, month and year of the message, then the message was sent yesterday.
Oh, and :)
not only did i find the bbc basic manual in my lab, but went to the effort of typing out that long passage for your enjoyment, and i don't even get a :)
Yesterday detection improved, but since noone posted anything yesterday you'll have to wait till tomorrow.
I wrote my message about U2 on Tuesday, but it comes up as yesterday. Richard's message on Tuesday, mmmm labs, comes up as Tuesday despite being only a few hours earlier.
A bbc basic (1986) manual, complete with copyright notice:
This is not a normal copyright notice
SO PLEASE READ IT
Please feel free to make a back up of your BBCBASIC(86) disk, however we ask you to use it on your machine only and not give or 'lend' a copy to anyone else. Why not? you may ask yourself. What have I go to lose?
We have all 'borrowed' software at one time or another and, at the time, we see no harm in it.
Think of the programmer who wrote the program. He isn't like a painter; damp and draughty garrets don't give him inspiration - they give him a pain in the neck.
He, like you, doesn't expect to get a fortune for a days work, just a fair reward for his efforts. Considering the hours it took to write, BBCBASIC(86) is not an expensive program; its ridiculously cheap.
We must sell a considerable number of copies of BBCBASIC(86) before the programmer can afford centrally heated lodgings. Every copy that is given away means one more day in the garret.
If things get too bad, our programmer may only write one-off programs for customers who can afford them
THEN WHO WILL WRITE THE PROGRAM FOR YOU TO RIP OFF?
In case the above plea has not reached you, please note:
BBCBASIC(86) is the copyright c 1982, 1984...etc
Tony has arrived!
When I get my Internet connection back (Friday) he should make his debut in Chennai 365.
is officially good. New Mark Knopfler album is officially quite average.
my supervisor gave the safety talk, today he comes in and says "why is that laser that way". "because then it points at the wall rather than the lab so its safe"..."aaah, don't worry about rubbish like that!"
