Britney dancing

But perhaps not Britney Spears singing on her current tour. To the surprise of absolutely no one it appears that Brit Brit is doing a great deal of miming to tapes of her voice while she gyrates seductively on stage.

I has to be said that no one is really listenng to Britney Spears for the quality of the vocals anyway: she was always known as a dancer and a star rather than a singer if we're to be honest. So it isn't, as above, all that much of a surprise that in her current tour she does an awful lot of dancing while the tapes roll in the background.

But if everyone knows that's what they're going to be getting, really, where is the harm in it? None that we can see from here, to be sure.

Website Hosting

As a result of something I saw on the web today I'm thinking about setting up a YouTube clone. No, I'm not thinking about setting somethingup that then becomes hugely famous and thus makes me a fortune.

Rather, I'm interested in those video clips that the other sites won't host. They won't host them because their business model looks for the mass market. I, on the other hand, am not interested in the mass market, in fact, don't have a business plan. Rather, this might be a labour of love.

The problem here is that bandwidth costs money. Whether I look at business website hosting or personal website hosting, the costs of streaming video could be serious. It doesn't take long for bandwidth costs to become significant if thousands of people are looking at something as heavy as video.

But what is the idea, I hear you say? Simply, host all of the videos banned by the others. They won't annoy a government because, well, they need to be friends with governments, so that the population can see the mass of their stuff. We would show only those clips that governments didn't want people to see.

However, casting around for possibilities, I see that at this site for business website hosting, I can get two terrabytes of bandwidth for $75 a month. This seems to make the idea, at least to begin with, worthwhile.

Hmmmm. Should I do it or not?

Poker Online

Yes, yes, we all know that gambling on cards is fer the devil. Fine. Those who think that way can simply not do it. Those of us who do wish to should be allowed to get on with our own pleasures: we've not gone round banning Bible classes now have we?

Good, having sorted out the moral points now we get to the technical. If we are one of those minority that use Macs we're not quite as spoiled for choice about where we can play as those who use (spit) PCs.

Which brings us to Mac Poker. An excellent liitle site dedicated to showing both where and how you can play both online and using your Mac.

For example, if you're into Pacific Poker, or Full Tilt Poker, there are sections telling you all about those variations.

If you're a Mac user and you want to be able to play poker online, then this is a site you simply must check out.

Bansturbation Again

As soon as anything goes wrong, the immediate reponse of the bureaucrats is to want to ban it.

As with the microwave popcorn ban that's being proposed.

You see, the employees of the City of Seattle are too stupid to do it properly. Thus the proposed ban.

Might it not be easier to hire slightly more intelligent employees?
