My journey into the PS2 back catalogue in search of fresh gaming experiences inevitably drew me to We Love Katamari, but it was surprisingly difficult to get hold of. I couldn’t find it in any regular shop obviously, and after waiting over a month with an online shop constantly promising that it’s back-order would take only ‘another week to ten days’ to fulfil I gave up and bought it on eBay, against my better judgement.
I’ve done far too much Microsoft bashing than is really fair lately, but this made me laugh today because it was just so beautifully ironic. The application platform group manager at Microsoft, was quoted in ZDnet todayas saying how dedication to a single legacy platform (SAP, Unix) reduced the flexibility of IT departments.

I never used to care much about this sort of thing before, despite having sat some economics / accounting exams in years gone by, the whole thing was largely theoretical unless I felt like going to the States on holiday or something. These days though, the dollar / sterling exchange rate is of significant practical interest to me, because a fair portion of my income originates from there.
It looks like Steve ‘Miracle Man’ Jobs has done it again, with early reports that the iPhone has exceeded even the most ambitious of expectations, selling half a million units in a single weekendin the US. I find that a pretty staggering number, but I can’t say I’m that surprised. It’s a gorgeous looking product, and has the kind of [It looks like Steve ‘Miracle Man’ Jobs has done it again, with early reports that the iPhone has exceeded even the most ambitious of expectations, selling half a million units in a single weekendin the US.
Marie’s been away the last couple of days at a conference so I’ve had the house to myself for the first time in ages. It’s pretty odd - I lived on my own for years before I got married, and I used to do a fair amount of travelling for work, so I’m not unused to it, but it is strange going back to being in your own house with no-one but 2 (insane) black cats for company.
