Only took me 5 months to get these uploaded and a further year to post the link here!
Bought this gan dou fu from China town the other day.
Have been trying to find this for ages, and it’s nice to see something made in the UK for once, but at £2.99 (30元) a pack it is very expensive indeed.
What caught my attention though was the English name on the pack, I couldn’t help but laugh at the rather unfortunate name of the manufacturer…
Seems someone needs to find the space key
I’ve Just signed up for a 100 mile cycle ride around Essex, in aid Action Medical Research, a great children’s charity dedicated to improving the health of babies and children in the UK.
I’ve never cycled this far before in one day, I just hope I don’t pass-out from fatigue or get hit by a bus

I found out through this email from Google – glad they told me as otherwise I may not have known!
Apparently this hack is a virus which uses stolen FTP password information then injects this bit of code to pages on the server without you realising it. Where they got my password from I’m not sure, though I suspect it might have been my old work machine. :reallypissed:
Well I thought this was cool anyway… Scans your blog and pulls up the most commonly used words (excluding the obvious ones) to produce this montage of words!
Just been reading that in London if you earn the average salary and have a £25,000 deposit you can buy a £100,000 based on 3X Income multiple for your mortgage.
This means anyone on the average salary fortunate to have £25,000 in savings can only afford a £100,000 place in london.
Slight problem with this is that unless you wish to live in a ghetto or a camp site, 100K will get you very little indeed. The average price of property in London is £348,585. :disdain:
At that rate it’s going to take me 17.49 years if saving, not that I want to buy a house anyway.. :laugh:
This is a website that archives content from the web and stores it as it appeared, based on periodic scans by the archive. It seems to have omitted the images from my sites but has captured all the text.
I had a server issue and lost lots of entries from late 04, but now I’ve re-inserted them via my SQL directly into the DB behind this blog – so you’d never know they went missing in the first place!
Also found some really old stuff from 2000 from my first webpage and some Northumberland road stuff that I thought disappeared years ago!
Like many others, I’ve spent ages trying to get Microsoft to show websites correctly and actually be able to read and write Chinese characters on a non-Chinese version of XP.
There’s bits and pieces on the web on how to overcome this but I found them not so useful (especially as I don’t have the installation discs to hand for Chinese character support or ahem.. am running a pirate installation…:-P)
Unfortunately you have to have admin rights to be able to set up Microsoft IME via the control panel and be able to write characters using the MS pinyin imput method. You also need admin access to be able to change windows so it defaults non-Unicode programs to use simplified Chinese – if you don’t do this when you load QQ all you see is squares…
There is a way around this if you don’t happen to have admin access to your machine i.e You’re at work . You can install NJStar CJK Viewer .
