The Wheels on the Car - Murphy's Law

Well I took my practical driving assessment this morning, and perhaps unsurprisingly I like most others failed my first attempt. The good news though is that the instructor thought I was actually pretty decent bar a few unfortunate mishaps and that I can retake the test next week.

The Errors I Apparently Made
1. Failing to stop fully for a stop sign - Honestly, I am adamant that I did stop for the damn sign. Unfortunately

The Doppelgänger [Dish #3]

Beware of the Doppelgänger

You know those weird moments when you meet someone who is the spitting image of a person you already know? Well I experience that every Monday night when I go to teach a beginners dance class at a nearby town hall.

There's this young woman who comes in with her boyfriend (well it might be a fiancee since I think I saw a ring) every week and every week I am, without fail, shocked. She looks almost identical to a friend of mine that I went

So this past weekend, Pokémon made an announcement that something was coming this Monday. Wanna know what it was? This.

Seriously, Pokémon, that's no special announcement if you ask me.. and besides, you already accidently leaked the video, too, which makes it less surprising...

The Papyrus font is now gone in Windows 8

Good riddance? That font sure looked out of place, then again. I do think that anything using that font will look screwed up on computers running Windows 8 or later...

Also, one neat things I have noticed is that Comic Sans MS now has true italics, and not merely slanted letterforms. It's especially noticeable with its lowercase t's.

Strange things for today, eh?

As it turns out, the day I was accepted to some university was also the day I first encountered a site where browsers too modern will screw up.

Good news: I'm now studying in Computer Science.

Bad news: Why do I have to bother with IE7 Compat Mode while logging in for student pass stuff? Then again, maintaining websites must be hard enough as is.
