A POISON TREE


I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears
Night and morning with my tears,
And I sunned it with smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright,
And my foe beheld it shine,
and he knew that it was mine,—

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning, glad, I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

Ministry of truth








Apple TV





All streaming. No hassle.
Everything you want to watch — films, TV programmes, photos and more — streams wirelessly to Apple TV. That way you don’t have to worry about managing storage or syncing to your iTunes library. HD film rentals play over the Internet to your widescreen TV, while music, photos and TV programmes stream from your computer. Either way, all you have to do is click and play. Since Apple TV features a powerful A4 processor, it streams everything effortlessly, without frozen screens or stutters. Video looks crisp and clear. And just like watching a DVD, you can fast-forward through opening credits, pause for a popcorn break or replay a hilarious scene until you memorise every line.

Get connected with Apple TV.
Setting up Apple TV is about as simple as it gets. Just plug the power lead into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV, that’s all you need. Well, that and a comfy sofa.

It all looks awesome especially when combined with airplay

Today's football rumours - miss the point

1) Fabio Capello has opened the door for David Beckham to make a sensational England return.
2) Steven Taylor could be left out of Newcastle's 25-man Premier League squad.
3) Asmir Begovic has accused Tony Pulis of lying over his refusal to play in the Carling Cup.
4) Tottenham will move for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi if they fail in a bid for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
5) Roy Hodgson will make a last-ditch bid to buy Carlton Cole.
6) Two mystery bidders are in talks to take over Sheffield Wednesday.
7) Craig Bellamy will sign for Cardiff permanently if they win promotion.
8) Millwall and Coventry are battling it out to take Danny Ward on loan from Bolton after Leeds dropped their interest in the striker.
9) Mark Schwarzer's move to Arsenal is on a knife-edge
10) Fulham have joined the race for Portsmouth midfielder Marc Wilson.
11) Sunderland are plotting a £5million move for Stoke striker Tuncay.
12) Greg Cunningham is a loan target for Manchester City.
13) Fulham are considering loaning striker Eddie Johnson to QPR.
14) Tom Cleverley will join Wigan on a season-long loan from Manchester United on Monday.

But what we would all like to know is what are the stories behind the Gagging orders. I mean how many are out now. It's pointless really as a simp.e google search will reveal the gossip.

The Lib Dems are back

What an initial impact there has been since Nick Clegg was given the opportunity to appear with Brown and Cameron in the first leadership debate on ITV.

The polls that have appeared in the days since the debate have all shown a) Clegg benefitted massively b) it has shaken up the election completely.

I suspect this is all soft support, but if he can keep these floating voters then who knows what will happen on election day.

Clegg will find it harder now as the big guns are turned on the Lib Dems and the scrutiny begins. It will also be harder to shine in the second debate on foreign affairs.

But he has made the most of his opportunity and given Brown and Cameron a lot to think about.

Game on all round.

The DSCC

Stands for defence solicitor call centre. Its a national system for allocating police station clients to firms.

Last week the contractor changed. The system crashed and it was utter chaos. Will there ever be a time when a government contract involving IT actually works?

It was a joke.

Too many people moaning about it. Have some fun.
