As the web turns

I’m back from Ireland where I had an enjoyable, if somewhat rushed, weekend of seafood, stout and song.

I returned to find over 1,000 emails waiting to be downloaded, the majority of them being spewed out by computers infected with the MyDoom virus. Windows users, for the love of God, start using some secure mail clients.

In my absence, the internet has, it seems, just carried on without me.

There’s a new version of Safari out (and very spiffy it is too), a new issue of A List Apart and two new big CSS makovers: AOL and Sprint. The Sprint redesign comes courtesy of France Rupert who’s continuing to fly the standards flag over there.

Apparently something interesting happened at the superbowl too, but I haven’t managed to figure out what yet.

It’s information overload. If I had stayed away any longer I would have run the risk of missing the funniest thing I’ve read in ages: what do real kids think of classic guitar anthems?

Have you published a response to this? :

A new book by William Gibson is always a cause for celebration. I’ll grab myself a copy as soon as I’m done with Cryptonomicon.

One of my all-time favourite websites is, home to The Institute Of Official Cheer featuring The Gallery Of Regrettable Food, probably the funniest thing I have ever read on or off the web.
