according to the New York Times.
Mind you if I could find a way to get paid for blogging (without plastering my blog in ads, 'cos obviously we all love reading blogs to catch up on our purchasing opportunities!), I'd probably become a 24/7 blogoholic too!
But just before 'terminal' blogoholism sets in I'm off to Northern Ireland (verdant land of Philomena Begley, fishing & the odd spot of knee-capping) for a week to see my parents. Who, I might add, don't even own a steam-powered computer and are still awaiting official reassurance about the Year 2000 meltdown problem. So no posting from me for the next ten days, but hopefully I'll sneak a chance to catch up with my fellow blogging brethren at whatever airport internet cafe I can find.
Meantime I'll leave you with my favourite old Irish e-mail chestnut and some cool shots I stole off flick'r.
This is an Irish email virus.
Since we are not very technologically advanced in Ireland, this is a manual virus.
Please delete all the files on your hard disc yourself and send this
email to everyone in your address book. That'd be grand, tanx
