Re: Copenhagen Popfest 16-18/4 - 2010!

It's hard to figure out but if you go to Eurolines French page, you can book the Brussels-Copenhagen leg separately, and get the Eurostar there to save a few hours travelling. The coach leaves at 23:15, so I guess it's feasible for you to get to Brussels for tonight's departure, but I've no idea if ...

Re: Copenhagen Popfest 16-18/4 - 2010!

One-way car hire is usually ridiculously expensive, especially if you cross borders.

There's a Eurolines coach from Victoria to Copenhagen for £70, takes 23hours and leaves 14:30 tomorrow. Trains are a bit of a hassle as I think you'd have to change at Brussels and Köln. Good luck!

Re: Google Chrome

wtf? chrome doesn't ask you to confirm that you want to close all tabs when you accidentally hit close? that should be like a basic built in thing! very annoying. but it does give you the option when you reopen the browser to open all the tabs that were shut in one click.. Yeah but you have to set ...

Re: songs mentioning brown eyes

Freckles by Gorky's Zygotic Mynci


so watch the sun
jody brown eyes
and you're my only one
jody brown eyes
when i was young
dreamt of jody brown eyes
no hit and run
jody brown eyes


I don't know if that's not subtle enough, what with him saying the word and everything, but it's a beautiful song.

Re: The Football

Ha! I just watched the press conference with Ferguson. I know all Premier League managers live in their own little fantasy world, but he's on another planet, isn't he? I only saw the bit in the tunnel where you can hear someone shouting "bloody cheats" in the background, where he called Bayern "typ...

Re: The Football

He sounded like Alan Partridge taking the piss out of himself. Haha, that was my exact thought, especially when Nani had the ball. He did point out at the end that Ferdinand and Vidic had been penetrated twice, which is good to know. Fergie's rant at the end was pretty amusing, if you hate the tedi...

Re: Primavera Sound

What he said, but I'd add to: Its on the metro - so dead easy to get to - though as it finishes late you'll need a bus or taxi back. There is normally a shuttle bus back to the city centre. it finishes late enough that the metro's already started running again. The shuttle bus runs to Place de Catal...

Re: Interesting websites & online fads

Hey guys, I just realised that the G2P website (you know that one that had the Google search mechanism to find mp3s) isn't up anymore. I know that this basically just contained a search algorithm for Google, so I was wondering if any of you know what it was! I guess I could just type this long stri...

Re: London is great

Actually, I'm kind of obsessed with this idea, I'm sure there must be some sort of archive of good quality photos just of everyday London from the last 40yrs or so somewhere, I just don't really know where I would look for it. I was thinking about this once when I was in the Old Blue Last, and wond...

If you scroll right down to the bottom of the page there's a bunch of links in the middle of the page and one of them says 'turn off Buzz'. I did that and it's gone, although part of me's wondering if I'm still there doing stuff, it's just i can't see what other people are doing. tbh I didn't get th...

B-b-but I can already use Facebook with my gmail account.

Tried it, turned it off. I'm on the internet a lot, and I'm fine with that, but I like to have some barriers. There's none with this.
