James Glover No.1

Jan 24th, 2008

For ages I was hovering midway down Google for searches for James Glover both in quotes and out. But today I’m at the top of the first page, and am also in second position. I don’t know how long this will last, as I’ve been here once or twice before, but I will enjoy it while it lasts.

Google Earth Finally Covers Edinburgh

Feb 12th, 2007

For ages most of Edinburgh was a blur, a resolution sufficient only to distinguish streets, not houses or cars. No longer, for now I can make out cars and even the shadows cast by bollards.

Wii wish you a merry christmas

Dec 24th, 2006

Not long now and I will finally be able to use the thing, I’m actually excited. Its a bit strange actually, at 22 I thought my majorly exciting christmases (Or christma, but that lacks the necessary magic and ‘white christmas’ suggests that christmases is correct) had ended, at least until I had children myself (Something that I’m still not sure about), but the Wii somehow manages to rescue all that. With my brothers getting a 360 they are similarly excited, and I think there will be a fair ammount of competition over the television in the front room. I’m hoping that Wii sports will at least give me a chance, and ultimately I’m hoping to get the whole family involved. I’ve already mentioned the golf to my Nana.

But in the meantime you may have noticed the punning title of this piece, which quite frankly is the only reason I’m even writing this. Sadly however it is not at all original, but has prompted a top run down of Wii inspired puns. So, without further ado lets hand over to the wonderful google.

wiitarded 90,500 I’m disapointed that this one is so high, but I can’t say I’m surprised. The internet is not best know for its sensitivity.

wiimote 6,830,000 Well this one is practically official

This list is obviously far from complete, partly because its nearly half past one on Christmas eve and I can’t spend forever thinking up puns that may or may not have been made. I will however add to this and I welcome subissions, which will be credited to the first submitter (On the off chance that someone actually reads this and cares).
