Blurgh... ...and a real alternative.

Feeling crap, phoned in sick. Bloody wonderful. Think it's just a cold, doubt it's hay fever (I don't get it badly anyway) since it's raining a little and that usually settles the pollen.

In yesterday's entry I mentioned Realplayer, forgot to mention that there's an alternative for Windows called (not surprisingly) "Real alternative"; this installs a reasonably good media player clone that can play Real Media files and (unlike Realplayer) doesn't monitor your net access etc. or spy on you for advertisers.

Bleughh... but writing...

Still feeling bleughh, but I'm getting a little writing done. Here's the next part of The Right Technology, my BtVS / Aardman Animation crossover. The first two parts are here.

I'm evil, aren't I...

won't post to archives until I have the next part written, in the meantime all comments gratefully received.
