Nov 10 - of beds, backsides and browsers.

As always I start my day tucked in bed with my laptop, reading, for a couple of hours, in a thinkly veiled excuse for working. No really, I do read lots of fascinating reading ... BBC Sports, Guardian Football, Soccernet, Football 365... its tough keeping up with all the news and gossip.

And the fascinating tidbits - like this one - from football365:

(my question is, how cold does it get in sunderland actually???)

'A man is recovering in hospital from serious internal injures after launching a firework from his backside. The 22-year-old suffered a scorched colon and other injuries in the incident in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. A spokeswoman for the North East Ambulance Service said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding. A spokesman for the Firework Association, said he had never heard of an incident like it in 45 years' - The Press Association

Apart from this, in a major development (life changing moment) I've switched from Microsoft Internet Explorer, to Firefox from Mozilla. Its much much faster, and has a few clever features (imports all your bookmarks and cookies) and you can download plug ins like a clip tagger from Clipmarks, Sage a feed manager and a blogging tool called Performancing, which allows you to blog any content from it's original page on the web, to your blog.

The MI5 head thinks there are 200 terror plots being tracked by the police. Sir Malcolm Rifkind thinks that the announcement for Saddam's sentence was timed, on request of the US, to coincide with their elections. And I have a full day of work, at home.
