I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

“Dear Bike Thief: You Suck!”

“Dear Bike Thief: You Suck!”

Flyer posted to a phone pole in Union Square.

Etch-a-Sketch art on Flickr. Some stunningly detailed stuff in here!

Google Translate: "Sarkozy is chirac"

Google’s new text translation service was created by running machine learning over UN documents. Unfortunately, its “learning” for politicians’ names is.. erm.. “interesting”. Try also “Sarkozy sarkozy sarkozy”

(Since Google will probably fix this, at the moment it translates “Sarkozy is chirac” to “Bush is classless”)

Good Feedkeeping

I made a couple of tweaks to my Atom feed earlier this week, which regular readers should be made aware of:

  1. In the spirits of saving duplicity, my main feed no longer contains my Flickr photos. If you still want to follow my photos, you should either subscribe to my Flickr photostream feed, or add me as a contact on Flickr and subscribe to your Photos from your contacts feed.
  2. Finally addressing frequent requests, there is now a link within my link posts to the original item—that link being the mini screenshot. Should save you having to click through to my site.

You may now carry on about your business.
