Crazy New Idea That Will Never Catch On!


Recommended Posts

Bored with their new toy - The Large Hadron Collider - CERN has decided to climb on the techno-nostalgia bandwagon by restoring the very first web page at the same URL as before. The fact that they are attempting to host it on the original hardware will become apparent when you try to download it!

http://info.cern.ch/...TheProject.html

What!? You expected pictures? You'll need to wait a few years (maybe for the very first bedlington.co.uk page?) for those. :D

BTW notice that although there's a WWW in the URL the bottom level domain is in fact info. It was only later that "www." was widely adopted as the name of the machine that delivered an organisation's http: content. Even today CERN themselves are ignoring this convention and using "web." instead.

      The daughter of a learner motorcyclist who died in a smash during his first lesson is raising money in his memory for the medics who came to his aid.
      Darren Jobling, 50, was thrown from his bike and crashed into a tree on Front Street West in Bedlington, Northumberland in July, 2019.
      The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) and North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) attended the scene and found that Mr Jobling had sustained severe chest injuries.
      He was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle by a NEAS road crew, accompanied by the critical care team from GNAAS.
      His daughter Danielle Jobling, 25, said: “GNAAS were there to assist straight away. They placed my dad in a coma and ensured he was comfortable.”
      Sadly, Mr Jobling, from Stakeford, Northumberland died a few hours later as a result of his injuries.

      I thought the comment "They don't cancel the Notting Hill (stab) Fest because too many people turn up." was amusing.  All part of the modern PC Britain Experience, I suppose.  Why don't they replace the RAF roundels with circles of yellow stars?  Then there'd be oodles of free money to keep it flying!

      So Angela Merkel is so p'd off with the yanks for bugging her private phone, and likely all her digital communications, that she's lobbying similarly minded eurocrats to set up new infrastructure that's totally under European (read her) control.
       
      This raises the obvious question as to whether you'd trust Fritz any more than Uncle Sam. I think the answer from the UK should be that we are staying with the devil we know - you can spend your own money on this Angela, not ours!  Of course this is just something else we'll have our minds made up for us on, as the "good Europeans" we are.
       
      If there's any UK money to be spent in the wake of all this it should go on a national monument to Edward Snowden.  Who, despite all the huffing an puffing from the likes of O'Barmy and Creepy Clinton, is in fact a very brave and well motivated soul.  We should - at very least - be offering to pay the Ruskies his board and lodging!

      It's growing rapidly in the UK apparently, but never used it myself.  Just wondering if anyone had any experience of other auction/fixed-price sites?

      eBay really does need serious competition, they are far too greedy, dictatorial, and service levels are near non-existent.

      Cam is the man who wants us to believe that this time around he will keep his promise for a referendum on the EU in 2015, and that we can trust him to renegotiate our membership. Promise, what promise? Referendum, what referendum? Don't remember that; do you Nick?
