worst font EVER

OK guys, I’m pissed off, really pissed off in fact – had one of those days at work yesterday where absolutely nothing goes right; everyone who thinks they know anything about the web starts telling me how they think it could be made better, I prepare for a 6 hour meeting about a database system that we shouldn’t even bought in a million years and then some fucking muppet sends me exhibit A which really just delivers the knock out punch.

With all this fun stuff going on I can see the fact that people are clearly going to get excited and use this available functionality as much as possible in their sites to ensure it looks professional, cool and up-to-date – but haven’t we actually been here before?? Read more

What with all the @media 2006 heat going on during the week – and the nice additional meet up on the Saturday (in which I did feel that my jokes were going down well, probably due to beer!) Either ways with all this fun it was very easy to forget that I had booked up the attend the Taste of London Festival; 40 of London’s top restaurants providing sample courses from their menu’s as well as a number of additional stands containing food produce, cookery books, cookery prsentations, beer sampling :> AND The World Cheese Awards – what more could I ask for?!!?
