Well, if you’ve been reading all about my adventures cycling along the Rochdale canal, then i can safely say i’ve managed to moblog. That’s number 40 off the list. The suggestion box is open for new challenges.
One thing i should have checked before i set out- Rochdale Canal extends beyond rochdale itself, going on to Halifax. Damn those wacky industrial revolutionaries and their naming conventions!
Next time i may go all the way to halifax (do canals have sources the way rivers do?) but, if this means i’ve kicked my cycling funk, i’ll probably try the ship canal adventure next week.
If i’m going to carry on moblogging I ought to find out what the data tariff is on my contract.
Well, i’ve made it to lock 46 and Littleborough. The question is, should i continue?
K have pondered this and i believe i should. I’ll catch a train back to manchester at the next station.
I still wish i could send pictures, it’s lovely out here.
Or 52, i’m not sure. It’s a shame i haven’t mastered sending pictures to the site from the phone, or i could show you the lovely new lock they’ve built here.
Never mind, i’ll take a picture and post it later.
I guess that lock 1 is in rochdale Itself, so i still have a fair way to go. I’ll turn around somewhere in the forties i reckon.
Gerry Anderson has completed the first 2 episodes of the long rumored Captain Scarlet CGI series and has released a trailer and short interview. It’s described as the best CG work ever done for TV but if you’ve seen the Dan Dare show on Five you’ll realise that’s not saying much. With Gerry in control (unlike the Thunderbirds movie) there’s a chance of this working but I haven’t quite managed to wipe Space Precinct from my memory. I want this too be good but every modern prequel, sequel and remake of a show or movie I liked as a kid has turned out to be a disappointment (my ‘issues’ with George Lucas have been posted here more than once).
This is a test of blogging by e-mail from my mobile. Did it work?

I wouldn’t argue that these games shouldn’t be sold- Vice City is brilliant and the original Max Payne was good, if a little linear- but I detect a screwed up double standard when Amazon UK will sell these but refuses to stock House of Bush, House of Saud.
Wubble U is being given anti-depressants to control his increasingly erratic mood swings. Of course, if he was ever caught on camera having an episode it probably wouldn’t make it onto the TV.
One long-time GOP political consultant who � for obvious reasons � asked not to be identified said he is advising his Republican Congressional candidates to keep their distance from Bush.
�We have to face the very real possibility that the President of the United States is loony tunes,� he says sadly. �That�s not good for my candidates, it�s not good for the party and it�s certainly not good for the country.�
Well it is your choice. BBC’s cult pages are search for a decision of the top scientists, although some of the choices may not be what you think.
It’s strange what generates traffic. Today I’ve been getting oodles of hits for variations on “hm department of vague paranoia”, as used in the title of this post on Tuesday. Either I’ve tapped into a strange little bit of the zeitgeist, or lots of people are trying to find this site but haven’t been given very good directions.
And guys, don’t be ashamed to admit when you’re lost.
Of course, all of this nonsense would be illegal in Alabama.
Yahoo presents Dating in the Park. I need two single male co-conspirators to enter for a place on one of these picnics. Volunteers?
David Millar was British cycling’s great hope post Boardman, until getting arrested in a doping investigation earlier this year. Having come clean, he’s hoping for leniency in an upcoming tribunal and confessing all to a Times interview.
Councils are usually crap about cleaning up art on walls, unless they gave permission for it to be there in the first place.
