Went out for a reunion dinner last night with the rag
crew, photos are now online.
I still haven't got round the problems with Netscape,
so please bear with me. I realise ec isn't even working
with NS6 at the moment (which means any Mozilla builds
are a dead loss as well). As soon as I've learnt enough
to figure out what tags I should/shouldn't be using,
I'll give it a shot, but you might have to wait until
See Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's good.
There are three new wallpapers

Prime number band theory
It really is rather elegant and simple: if you want
success, you want fame and you're in a band, stick to
prime number groupings. There are probably reasons
for this, but it's best to run through this as follows:
This is not my theory
I take no credit whatsoever, I am merely reporting:
this was wonderfully concocted in the bar by Rich, Max
and Chris, all of whom came up with an excellent proof.
The power of One
Of course one works. It was always going
to. You've got your divas, your Badly Drawn Boys and
your Robbie Williams, you've got your Billies and (unfortunately),
your Phil Collins.
Two's fine as well
The Two Princes. No problem. Classic, great song.
Charles and Eddie. Wonderful.
Four is Right Out
Four doesn't work. It was never going to. Eternal
used to be four, now they are three, with the sad loss
of Louise. See also: Spice Girls -
A Case Study.
Five is Alright
Five is alright. No problem. You've got, well, Five,
and we solidly maintain that there were five Beatles:
George Harrison deserves his place, after all.
Six is a big no-no
You must be kidding.
(and so on)
Any prime number will do
Come on, Live Aid had about nineteen or thirty seven
The Spice Girls - A Case Study
Well, they started good. Five. Sporty, Posh, Baby,
Scary and Ginger. Phenomenal success. Girl Power. Everything
was looking good. Then things started to go downhill:
Ginger left. Suddenly, they were a four, the classic
unstable combination of pop groups. Before they knew
it, album sales were plumetting, they were no longer
raking in the number ones, and the group has all but
disbanded, reverting to the power of One.
So? Believe us. It works. Of course, you're
welcome to disprove
it, or help refine
