Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20060911

Hi,

Once again this is being written while I wait for a website to backup so that I can upload the new changes. So it will be a quick one this week.

Lets begin this week with Blame and the Flash thingy.
To quote Jools

Hands up everyone who likes watching buildings “bite the dust”? I’ll assume that the rest of you are just fibbing.

OK then hands up everyone who liked the Sony ad with the thousands of coloured balls bouncing down the street (me me me ) Jog your memory here

Well here’s the building and the colours getting together and having fun.

See, I have always said that a bored thatch is a dangerous thing.
