Cluedo (its original name) is being “updated” (ahem) for the 21st century. Poor old Professor Plum has been ditched.

The invisible shed

November 1, 2007

Rarely do I read something which really makes me laugh out loud: invisible shed.

Excellent video presentation from James Pasley, Cape Clear’s CTO, on XML, XML Schema, SOAP and WSDL. 15 minutes that could just change your (professional) life for the better!

Looks like Neil Armstrong really did say “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”, and did not drop the “a”. Now if only NASA could find the original moon landing footage … if you’re a Moon Freak, I’m currently reading Moondust: In Search of the Men Who Fell to Earth by Andrew Smith, it’s quite good.

I recently put a set of Nimbus Armadillo tires on my Specialized Rockhopper. I’ve been using it for commuting and won’t be getting to the mountains for a while, so I ditched the MTB tires for some extra speed and flat resistence. These things are cranked to 100 psi, though the guy in the shop told me he puts his up to 125! Kabooom!!

I like my Rockhopper – I got one with front and rear discs, but I really want something with rear suspension too. Cycleways in Dublin has the Enduro reduced to about 1800 euros. Drool.
