“What’s a hotspot not?”
Ahh, who doesn’t look back fondly remembering those times when Michael Barrymore was nothing more than a genial host, in front of a bank of television sets, asking obvious quiz questions to people who seemed to be out on day release?
“It’s not a good spot,” replied the audience. If any one knew where a good spot was in those days it was the British public because we were a generation raised on public information films.
We knew where not to fly a kite, we knew the dangers lurking in watery depths and we knew to be extra safe when crossing the road with Darth Vader. Public information films educated us all to know where our children were at night as they had taught us how to protect ourselves against an imminent cold war nuclear bomb.
"One’s too many, ten’s not enough!"
It’s a line from a Pop Will Eat Itself song that a mate of mine had as the signature to his emails for years. Given PWEI’s predilection for appropriating popular culture (as well as samples from other songs) into their songs it has always bothered me. I needed to know what it meant, I think I do now.
Up popped a picture today. I was sitting writing some nonsense and the computer made that noise computers do when they want your attention. Rob had clicked ‘like’ on a picture I’d edited from a picture he’d posted. I’d liked his picture too.
Those are moments when I love computers, an interaction with someone in a different part of the country. We shared a mutual moment in a cloud of data. We briefly connected. No harm done...and yet...I felt a movement in The Force.
The fashion for sub-ohm vaping continues to flourish within the vaping community and so for those of you starting out here is a beginner’s guide. Those who chase big clouds at low ohms need to know to do so safely and is only recommended for experienced vapers who are not new to coiling drippers.
Firstly, sub-ohm vaping can be dangerous.
You need to be able to use Ohm’s Law, accurately measure the resistance of your coils, appreciate how coils work when placed in parallel and know what maximum constant current your battery can cope with. Also the juice you use ought to be tailored for very low resistances.
Vikings, out of all actual cool people that really existed, must top my list of things I wish I could be. Clearly, being a vampire or a person with superpowers would beat being a Viking but we have to remain fixed in reality here. Wanting to be a vampire is just stupid - for a start your shopping experience would be limited to 24hr supermarkets and late-night kebab shops, neither of which carry a good range of blood. No, definitely a Viking.

I don’t know about you but I’ve joined and then left many groups on Facebook, some within minutes of being accepted. One of the things I wonder about when clicking on the join button is whether the effort being placed into that motion is even worth the bother because it usually isn’t.
Once allowed into a sanctum restricted to those deemed worthy (which appears to be every person desiring to join) my first question is ‘why wasn’t this an open forum in the first place?’ I see a familiar array of icons depicting omnipresent Facebook profiles, some achieving to be in more places at the same time than even a God could lay claim to.
