    The Mayday Mystery

    Just checked out the MaydayMystery site for the first time in months as whenever I had looked recently it was just saying he (Bryan) didn't have time to do any updates or whatever, and there's finally a bunch of new updates in the 'recent developments' section. I've been following it for many...

    The Mayday Mystery

    More than likely, but considering the costs that have been wracked up over a couple of decades, they'd have to be pretty rich and patient intellectuals.. Steve.

    The Mayday Mystery

    I'm back... not that I've actually been anywhere - I just gave up coming here after the hassle of the changing usernames... Still tearing my hair out over on the mayday page with no luck. I feel like I'm skittering on the edge of something that I just can't quite grasp. Maybe because...

    Spam etc

    But why should I have to filter something I chose not to receive? I don't mind if they want to send me unsolicited email that I deliberately told them I did not want to receive though. I'll read it very carefully and thoroughly. As long as they don't mind me invoicing them my standard...

    Spam etc

    I got one that started: Like others, I made sure I filled all the boxes in to not be sent junk mail. (and I've just checked - that is still the case). Which means that Dennis Publishing is probably in breach of the relevant bits of law covering marketing email and the data protection act...

    Quitters & Shape-Shifters: Last Words & Reincarnations

    Is it possible to become a four letter word again? (No, not that four letter word) If possible, can I lose my trailing zero? If not I'll have to have a rethink and come up with something else I suppose. Steve.

    Shortwave Number Stations

    I recently bought a radio scanner - one of those impulsive purchases off ebay - and had tried finding some of these number stations - it was randomly discovering a web page or two about them that got me looking on ebay for scanners in the first place... I've not yet stumbled across one...

    London Explosions: Speculation / Discussion

    Ug. I'd like to think that if it came to it, and I was dead either way, I'd at least go out trying to protect others. But I have no idea what I would really do... Probably depends on the situation, whether there was someone else doing something about it and whether there was a reasonable...

    London Explosions: News

    They said on News24 that two people have been arrested, one at Westminster and the other on Tottenham Court Road, but didn't confirm that either arrest was directly connected.

    London Explosions: News

    'dismayed'??? seems a minor explosion if the person wearing the thing that exploded could look dismayed! So either it's an accident - mobile phone battery shorted out or something, or an explosive that didn't detonate properly. Of course, I'm merely hypothesizing... Steve.

    Blue Atmospherics (Anti-Crepuscular Rays)

    Thanks for those links - they linked to another site that had a picture of sky polarization that looks another possible contender... the picture given on that page was through a polarizing filter that exaggerated the effect. The anticrepuscular ray looked possible too, but I don't think it...

    Blue Atmospherics (Anti-Crepuscular Rays)

    The night before last I popped out to the shops and saw a weird atmospheric condition that I'd never seen before: a deep blue stripe running from the horizon up into the sky. It was probably about 9pm so still light but just starting to turn to dusk, weather was excellent, hot, mostly clear...

    Emergency contact

    I've been sent the following by email. On the face of it, it could be a good idea. However, I don't know whether it is genuine or a chain letter. It fits the methodology of the latter: asking you to forward it to everyone in your addressbook and so on. I don't think it really comes from the...

    London Explosions: News

    The CNN page has a front page headline saying 'US sources say at least 40 dead'. But when you read the story it links to, it says 2. Edit: Actually, if I read more than the opening paragraph of the story, it does in fact say 40. Steve.

    I thought they'd specifically denied being Masons before. Or was it Templars? I can't find anything on the site about it but this page does refer to the Orphanage denying being directly related to freemasons, so it must be somewhere... I had been thinking wikis would be a good idea for the...
