The soundtrack's good too! And by the way, you could make something like this yourself using Flix.
Are you paying too much council tax? 25 Jan 2007
I hope some people make some money from this, or rather get some back. We, in the borough of Kingston pay the most council tax in the country so I feel extra obliged to point you to this page, which explains how your house could very well be in the wrong council tax banding. If so, you could claim back overpayments from as far back as the early 1990s!
This is going to be a big story when it goes...

Bereavement fares 24 Jan 2007
A tip that hopefully you'll never have to use - if you have had a death in the family and need to fly to the funeral, some commercial airlines offer bereavement fares that are around half the price of a full price ticket. Not all offer this though as they would argue that cheap airline tickets are something they already offer, but I'm glad that businesses are sensitive to this sort of thing. A ...
Popular internet searches in... 22 Jan 2007
China. The questions being asked by a nation's population says a lot about that country. Baidu has recently published what people in China are searching for. I'm sure there are some cultural observations to make here. As for other countries, well Google also has a Zeitgeist page you might want to check out.

Rent out your parking space 14 Jan 2007
Finding a parking space near your train station or place of work is difficult to start with, finding a cheap one is nigh on impossible. So, someone made ParkatmyHouse.com. Seems like a great idea. They take 10% of the rent, but that seems reasonable!
Read more books 13 Jan 2007
If one of your New Years resolutions was to do more reading, Daily Lit might be a site you should visit. They have a bunch of books to choose from and the innovative thing about this is that you get to read them in bitesize sections via emails, scheduled to arrive in your inbox, say, at 9am every weekday if you want. What a great idea!

Just found a very useful Firefox add-on, well, useful for webmasters with advertising on their websites. This displays your adsense earning at the bottom of your browser, updating itself periodically.
Now a Multilanguage Blog 05 Jan 2007
Since its creation, Nimisis.com has sadly neglected the majority of the world's internet users by being an English-only site. That has now all changed!
New language links are now at the top of each page. Hopefully everyone will feel a bit more included by being able to read the content in their native language. As a mandarin speaking person, I might actually start slowly translating certain page...
Nimisis toolbar button 03 Jan 2007
For those with a google toolbar integrated into their web browser, it is now possible to add your own custom buttons! It really couldn't be easier I've made one for nimisis.com too.
Goal line technology... coming soon? 02 Jan 2007
Over 80% of football fans are in favour of it and it's going to be trialed at the 2007 FIFA World Club Championship - so will goal line technology be here to stay? I thought I'd do a bit of research on this and share that here.
Naturally, as most games of football only see an average of 2 or 3 goals, one more or one less makes all the difference. There are times when it's too close to call and, ...
