    Jerry Springer trash yeah.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Essentially, yes, white trash is typically associated with trailer trash.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    Hmm I haven't configured anything. Let me go check it out.
    EDIT: Right I've set it to allow non-member to post comments. Does that help?

    >> Think gypsies, but they're Irish and are never seen without shotguns.

    ... they're normally called Travelers (sometimes known as "knackers" ... ). We rarely call them gypsies. That's just like the leprechauns and "Tir na Óg" and whatnot. Well, perhaps not.

    Why an every-day-updated-blog though? ... should we start a poll to see how long the board thinks he'll keep it up for Not that I don't have faith in you

    I updated it today. Woot.
    I'm going to try and keep up the daily thing and I'm only posting at late morning / early afternoon. Not much happens between 7:00 and 12:00 over here.

    Oh and bear with me regarding the totally buggered line-breaking. If I let the editor do it for me then it lets it run over the links bar to the right and when I break the lines myself the editor feels the need to add extra ones at very inconvenient places, as you can see.
