    Why is your text size suddenly so small Mr Helio, Sir? It may just be a side-effect of my Internet Explorings, I will check in the Firefox.

  2. rob says:

    Yup, just IE. What did you do to it? :(

    I haven’t changed it for some time now. I’ve no idea why your IE has it so small: it looks fine in both IE and Firefox on my end. Same on my work machine.

    Weird. Perhaps my RSS reader has shat itself, although it’s fine on other sites.

    Starter Jackets

    Wow, doesn’t that take you back?

    I had light-up sneakers once. Except, they only lit up if you stomped on them, so the effect was sort of diminished.
