Anger And Frustration

Evening. An assortment of stuff tonight, so strap in. First a plea to fellow bloggers. A Mischief Of Magpies, the group blog I contribute to is in need of new blood. If you want a place to get things off your chest, indulge in intelligent debate and show everyone what a witty, well read and clever sod you are then you are most welcome. Just email me and i'll arrange to have an invitation sent to you. For those without a blog, i'm not 100% sure what the script is for getting you on board, but I can honestly say that you could do worse than get your own blog going. It's a piece of piss. Your prescence on A Mischief Of Magpies will also provide a link to your own site allowing an increase in traffic to the wonders(or horrors) of your personal blog. Ok, sales pitch over with, I shall move on to the cunt who invented that button on my keyboard that when pressed disconnects me, and shuts my PC down. I hate you with every fibre of my being, you perverse, twisted bastard. Twice last night my slightly erratic typing strokes landed on this little grey button whilst making blog entries. The best part of 500 words gone in an instant. I don't touch type and those who do should be burnt as witches. Ok, so the button is up next to the function keys and in theory should not be struck whilst typing, but all it takes is a misplaced bash at the delete button without looking and everything you wrote is gone forever. The only possible purpose for this button is to help middle aged men who skim porno sites while the wifes out shopping switch the pc off in a quick and easy manner when the other half unexpectedly comes in the door with her elderly mother in tow. I see Blair has decided it's 90 days or nowt. Obviously the man is desperate for some quick fixes, hoping that the fear people have of another suicide attack will let him get away with erroding civil rights in the name of some vague threat from international terrorism. These measures will NOT stop another act of terrorism by Muslim fundamentalists on these shores. I don't for a moment trust any country with such laws on detention to remain true to their original premise(locking up nasty men who they think want to kill you). Once the breach of a certain freedom or right has been made by a government, regardless of the caveats made to ensure that the powers will only be used in ceratin circumstances, the mutual trust between public and government that allowed such a liberty in the first place will have started to wither. If you're happy with that.............. well, please yourself. Like that other absurdity and weapon of control the ID card, this issue will inspire the immortal words from the mouths of morons "But if you've nothing to hide......" Ok, enough of the apocalyptic predictions. I'm off for me tea. bye.

I think I might have got us another member. Fingers crossed. Oh and it's fine for people without blogs to join.

ill man said...

Thankyou. Wasnt sure about that one...

I suppose we need enough people to ensure at least one post per day. It goes in fits and starts. Ross Kemp scowling at you for four days, then two come along at once.

Getting pretty depressed about my attempts to bring people in. I've found about two bloggers that have the potential to contribute something, one of which has so far not responded to my invitation. Am I being too fussy?

Clairwil said...

No yo're not being fussy. Most blogs are shite, keep going. I'm thinking of entrapping someone fairly shortly. I shan't say who.

Clairwil said...

Sucess! The ruler of Blairwatch has joined and PHDMonkey has expressed an interest. Speaking of lack of posts I notice you haven't posted this week!

ill man said...

The Mischief has it's latest missive from the ill man.

I fear I may have wasted my best ammo this week here, when I could just have posted any old bollocks. Well not any old bollocks, but something less vituperative............

Clairwil said...

Yes, and very good it is too. As you may have noticed the Phd monkey and ringverse(blairwatch) have joined. Hurrah!

ill man said...

I see you've changed email Hotmail really are shit. It'll be a thing of the past once I have broadband.

No more screwed posts because of your PC shutting down: use Firefox with the "autosave" extension. Here: http://www.benya.com/software/savetextarea/

Then get into the habit of pressing Control-S every minute or two!

Ach no....Thanks anyway Croila. It's my spazzy typing style that's to blame. The main point of the post was that I did'nt see the point in a "shutdown" button being on the keyboard.

Anything for a bit of a moan to be honest..........btw, like yr blog. I'll be back for another look later
