New Job!

Should have posted this a while back when I'd had the offer... but today I actually received the contract and signed on the dotted line for a new, permanent, full-time, properly paid job at Park 6th Form College, part of Sussex Downs where I was working part-time already.

I'l be doing pretty much the same as I have been this year, only a bit more of it, a bit further away, and for proper cash on a proper contract. The staff and students there seem really nice and I'm looking forward to starting in September. Just one more Summer School at Lewes to go...

Comic Sans Relief

There comes a time when we in the western world need to stand up and say 'No more'. Stop the hurt. Stop the abuse. Ban comic sans. Now. Make Comic Sans History.

We are teh Modz!

I have achieved a sort of geek nirvana.

Over at Lionhead Studios I've become a moderator on their forums. Yay! It means I get a shiny badge and have all sorts of powers over other geeks. I intend to use them for good, and to defeat evil, unless someone good pisses me off, in which case I'll ban them. Mwahahahahah!

The Death Clock - When Am I Going To Die?

For the morbid among you, check out The Death Clock - When Am I Going To Die?. This will calculate the statistically likely day of your death, based on whether you are male, female, a smoker, and your Body Mass Index (ie, whether you're a porker). It'll even count down the seconds for you.

My big day will be: Tuesday, August 1, 2045.

So I'll just get in the 100th anniversary of WW2. I didn't tell them I'm an ex-smoker though. If I was still smoking it'd be Monday, March 8, 2038. I wouldn't even get to celebrate the annexation of Poland.
