1. Happy Thanksgiving!

Epic Win: The Cartoon Network rickrolls New York during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. With actual Rick Astley.

2. Help! I'm completely failing to upgrade Flash on my Eee. I can download a tar.gz file, and executing the installer (and the other file) in it does *something*, but doesn't make Flash work, dammit. I think I might have to uninstall Flash and then reinstall it, but I'm not sure...

3. I am utterly entranced by the Text 118118 (text any questions) line's live feed. :

Q: What is the name of the girl in hollyoaks who had a 1 night stand with tony

A: 118 Team is uncertain. However, you may try to ask Tony for best result upon your query. thx

Q: How do you know so much stuff

A: We use a mix of brainpower, a hint of ingenuity and then, we mix it with the internet. thx

Q: Is it true if i keep pulling this face it'll stay this way

A: Yes, you will stay that way even you keep pulling your face. However, you might get hurt if you do. thx

Q: Is PEM a painter and decorator

A: Peabody Essex Museum is the oldest continuously operating museum in the United States. thx

Q: Did they swing

A: The 118 Team is uncertain. However, ABBA topped the charts worldwide from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s

Q: Got any sci-fi jokes please 118

A: started reading a book about anti-gravity. It's really interesting, I just can't put it down. thx

Q: Another word for minor crime

A: Treason is the another term for a minor crime. thx

Q: Wot courses do i need to do to become a tree surgeon

A: For you to be qualified as a tree surgeon, you must have a doctoral degree, masters degree & bachelor degree

Q: I need a really unique present for my mum... Help

A: You may give her a bunch of roses, a greeting card or bracelet. thx

More links later, possibly, as I have far too many tabs open again.

Wow, that 118118 actually sucks doesn't it! And they are charging folk for this? Incredible.

Yeah...if you watch it for a while you can see patterns, some of them are fine and accurate and funny and some of them don't even seem to have English as a first language.

I thing the Eee uses Xandros as the basis for its OS: you might be able to download the Ubuntu .DEB file and run it. Otherwise the tar.gz stuff here might help...


(you're probably installing Flash 10 but it's basically the same process)

Yeah, I had the same problem a couple weeks ago. Xandros won't run the newer versions of Flash, and that is the end of it.

Nuts. Sorry: you're right.

There's a thread here where people have got a Flash 10 Beta working which might help.

Bugger...I think I did see someone saying that, but I decided it couldn't be true because I didn't want it to be!
