Partenia is a small, deserted region of Algeria. Ten years ago, Jacques Gaillot, the Bishop of Evreux, was summoned to the Vatican and told that as a result of his progressive political activities, he was to be transferred to the diocese of Partenia: a kind of euphemism for being sacked. Undaunted, the Bishop extended his diocese into cyberspace in the form of a multi-lingual web-site, where it recently celebrated its first ten years. Includes the history of Partenia.

Curious George: Who wants my child? I'm using up my infinite Curious George quota lately: my dear son drew on our concrete driveway with permanent marker today. Any idea how to get it off, shy of waterblasting? It's one of those coloured-concrete dealies and I think waterblasting it would probably be bad.

Open Source Web Design Why in hell did I spend 12 hours fucking around in Dreamweaver arguing with CSS to come up with a decent web page design for my blog, when I could have pinched one of these & then tweaked it? Why am I so stupid? Why am I asking you?

Curious George: Mortgages Sad but true, I have a question about boring grownup stuff. Our mortgage has been on a two-year fixed term at around 6.25% and that term is due to expire in June. The current rate our bank is offering, right at this minute, is almost too good to resist (7.5%) because we know rates are going to increase. Should we switch to a new fixed term now and pay the extra interest for a couple of months, or wait and risk getting an even higher rate we're stuck with for two years?
