magazine, ropes and gin

i am very excited today as i have been asked to write my thoughts for a podcast magazine called which is very nice. i am concerned that my writing is not of a journalists standard though. probably the last time i was asked to write a long document was in statement claiming i was not in the park that evening and i dont suppose my blogging and emails count as writing either. i notice that more and more bloggers just cut and paste other peoples blogs into their own without any opinion. i do not want to do this as i beleive people read my blog to know about me and all the latest adam curry / barry pepper related news, not what i have been able to take from someone elses site.

so what have i been up to then? i had to work over the weekend,and just after christmas brings in all the depressive overdosers so our department is very very busy right now. i blame the loan companies on tv who advertise credit cards. The general public fall for their lies and end up in dept making them feel like killing themselves. they should not be suisidal about it, they should count themselves lucky that they have a roof over their heads and have a wife and children who love them. if they didnt spend so much money on paracetamol and rope they might not be in so much dept trying to kill themselves. rope costs a lot of money and only the expensive rope is of any real use, i learnt the hard way and a lot of my cheaper rope has simply frayed or rotted away in the garage because of mildew.

i went out on saturday night by myself to meet girls with no luck whatsover.i left early and decided to walk home. although it was very cold i think walking is good because it gives me time to think and reflect on things. its funny how having an ingrowing toenail makes you fully apprecate the numbing effects of drinking neat gin before a long walk home. yesterday morning i woke up with a sore toenail and a sore head. i will never drink gin again.

Next time to take your mind off your toenail, can I suggest you consider thinking about ways to update RSS 2.0, SOAP 1.1, OPML 1.0 or XML-RPC.

When you have a brain the size of a planet be grateful that blog sites from the few even get produced Roger!

Roger, go for it with the article!! I have this weekend been reading the Podcast User Magazine Issue 1 and I was pleased to see you mentioned in it. I'd be very interested to read your article in a future issue... I still often listen to your Barry Pepper Top Ten list on the Top of the Pods podcast, and it is so entertaining! Sorry to hear the toenail is still giving you grief... :-(

Hi Roger

Many thanks for agreeing to contribute to the Podcastuser Magazine. Welcome aboard!

I note with some interest that your jingle on Adam's show is spreading like wildfire. I have heard it myself a couple of times!

Do your workmates know about your celebrity status?

Go Roger. We agree with you on the copying and pasting thing, and by the way, you are an original. Scary, but an original.

As for the T-shirt, I would prefer to see something based on the classic Roger line:"looking for a girlfriend am not fussy"

"i am not free on tuesdays"

Perhaps its is possible to have them print your own individual hotmail account on the back;-).

Roger, as for your complaints on blogs, are you really to young to remember the true meaning of the word 'weblog'..., indeed a log of things that occure on the world wide web.
