The computer in work that is. I've been having problems embedding material in the Linden website. After trying everything suggested on the various help forums, I consulted our webman (who is difficult to get hold of hence my reticence in trying).
He talked me through a remedy; it didn't work. I sent him the information, he did exactly the same as he'd told me to do - and I'd done - and it worked.
Today I attempted another bit of embedding using webman's method; once again it didn't work for me.
I am beginning to take this personally.
In other totally unrelated bits of internet stuff, I googled 'rusty transit van' images and up came a picture of Brad Pitt. While I have no objection to unsolicited images of Brad Pitt gracing my screen it does make me wonder how Google works.
I said to Ric this morning that google was a word before Google appeared; later on I began to doubt the accuracy of that statement and checked it with Mr Chambers' good book. I was right: googly is a noun (an off-breaking ball with an apparent leg-break action on the part of a right-arm bowler to a right-handed batsman or conversely for a left-arm bowler) and to google is to bowl or behave in such a manner. So there. You've often googled, haven't you?
And of course, a googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros. As we discovered to our cost in the quiz we attended last week. (Don't ask how we fared.)
