It be Talk Like A Pirate Day. Backword Dave do be havin’ a fine post a-remindin’ uz o’ the occasion, an’ a-mockin’ young scuvy dog Peter Cuthbertson.

Dave be not so impressed by yesterday’s Guardian, but. That be foolish: this week’s Magazine an’ Guide be excellent readin’. Special’ as the Magazine do reveal that Amy Winehouse be Kat Slater (sadly the pictures be not online).

  1. john b, isn’t it scary when rightists, leftists and centrists start thinking the same thoughts?



    Man, you need comment preview. I just noticed. How can you not have comment preview and be dissing our site?!

  2. And your external links open in the same window?!

    Tsk, tsk, tsk…

    I hadn’t really examined your site before, john b

    You should come hang out with us more. Our site is like a party and your site is like a funeral.

    Anyway, the link title that got truncated just asked how ya been. I don’t want you to think I’m rude or anything. Just critical.


  3. You’re right on these – preview and allowing "title" elements in links would both be good things to add. Although (as of 19:37 GMT Sunday) your site is blank with the main pages and all links generating 404 errors, which is arguably worse…

  4. I’ve never seen the point of new windows. I can only read one page at a time. (I have several tabs open; but that’s usually for reference.) If I want to open a page in a new window, it’s easy enough. And if come across a site that forces new windows, I override it, and don’t visit as often as I might.

  5. (and I agree absolutely with Dave on this one. Right-clicking and selecting "open in new window" is among the easier tasks in life).

  6. Um… Dave and I might have argued about this before on LGF Watch, I think. External links shouldn’t be navigating away from the site. If the reader follows links from your link and other links from their links and so on (which is the whole point of the web) it’s much easier to navigate by closing windows than hitting the back button.

    We’re changing servers today, that’s why you might be having problems. You’re getting the DNS record for the new place. There’s nothing there yet, our ayahuasca is still doing the import process. But it’ll be good in a few hours. He’s God, you know.


    Oh, and about rightclicking, it doesn’t feel right. It’s like having gay sex when you’re straight, it’s a little awkward. Of course that goes the other way around too.

  7. Man… it’s boring when my blog is in transfer and I gotta hang out at other people’s blogs and they got time differences and such. If I get any more bored I might have to um… I’m not telling. And your colours are not helping, john!

  8. I haven’t been to your site, Rightwatch, so I’m afraid it was a different Dave.

    However, I salute your adventurous nature. Trying out gay sex when you’re straight. Were you desperate or what?

  9. Nah, we didn’t argue on my site, Dave, I think we argued on LGF Watch, didn’t you read my whole comment? Maybe it was a different Dave but my argument still stands.


    And touchy on the gay sex, are we? I thought this was a liberal site and here I come across a homophobe.

    What’s up with that john b? You scared of gays too?

  10. I haven’t commented on any of the LGF Watches except Harry’s (LGF Watch Watch Watch); I didn’t know any existed until last week. "New windows" is a rant I’ve had before, so we may well have met under different aliases elsewhere, but it won’t have been LGF connected.

    Sorry, I got LGF Watch (not you) and LGF Watch Watch (you) confused. I really can’t think why.

    I don’t have a problem with gay sex. I have tried it and I am straight. I just don’t bring it up. And I’m not going to discuss this any further. :)

  11. Ooh-err. I walked into that one. I don’t bring the subject up. Happy now Finbar?

    For the benefit of Rightwatch, "Finbar Saunders and his Double Entendres" is a character in the ‘adult comic’ Viz.

  12. Dave,

    "However, I salute your adventurous nature. Trying out gay sex when you’re straight. Were you desperate or what?"

    "I don’t have a problem with gay sex. I have tried it and I am straight. I just don’t bring it up. And I’m not going to discuss this any further. :) "

    LOL!! I wanted to ask if you were desperate, but all right..


    Shake hands (or paws, or whatever..)

    And you should visit my site. It won’t kill you, you know. And it’s much more interesting than Harry’s boiling chip fat at LGFWWW.

  13. LOL!!! Hexcellent! You got a sense of humour, Dave!


    Assuming that your first trip to my site went ok and you’re still alive and all, try commenting next time. You can even bring john with you, he can have your back. Leave your wallets at home, you’ll probably feel safer that way and come leave a comment, ok? If you feel particularly brave, you can even use an emoticon or two. And tell me what you think of the colours. They really bother john.
