Noticed in Switzerland last week that everywhere you looked there were posters for the upcoming European football championships. So I guess it's not too early to bring out the MS Excel spreadsheet for the tournament. All the fixtures are listed and group standings are calculated as each goal is scored.

There was an earthquake in UK early yesterday. Officially recorded to be 5.2 on the Richter scale, with an epicenter in the midlands. I was awake when it happened, and it was possibly the smallest quake I've ever been aware of, yet it still makes the front page of the newspapers here. What a complete joke! Thankfully no one was hurt, but something above 6.0 is more to shout about...
Update : Fixed a few errors.
African Cup of Nations 2008 in Ghana is only a little over a month away so I've made a wall chart in MS Excel format for those who like filling in the results into a spreadsheet whilst following the tournament. Download from Sport.omani.ac.
The latest version of Google Earth has a new feature which allows you to flip the default view to looking up at imagery of the night sky gathered from telescopes.
No longer do you have to buy a telescope from ebay to do some star gazing . Seeing all those billions of stars does make you feel pretty small though!
The Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa will be upon us in a couple of weeks. Get your wall chart , check the fixtures and support your team!

By the way, the creator of this spreadsheet, Aaron Heath, has a whole selection of other wallcharts which can be found on his site.
"Some of the web's most innovative developers might want to check the temperature when they arrive for the Future of Web Apps conference this week -- in tech circles, this city is getting hot again."
London's developers and entrepreneurs should find this article quite encouraging!
Only a few weeks left now until the Cricket World Cup schedule begins! West Indies 2007 promises to be as exciting as ever and to help you follow it, here's a wallchart for you to print out and fill in as the tournament progresses.
By the way, my Duckworth Lewis calculator is freely available for use during the forthcoming matches to help discern how each game is going and who's winning. It's n...
This calculator finds useless dates related to your birthday. I discovered that soon I'll be ten thousand days old using this. Sounds more impressive than becoming twenty-something!
Just retracing some of my steps using Google Earth and Google Maps and noticed that the reservoir in Central Park looks as if it's either got a very narrow bridge across it or a tunnel. How great would a glass underwater tunnel be ! See for yourself.
Art gets silly.
Found out last night that barge parties are cool.
Darts is not a sport in my opinion. Players of a sport must be athletes. It's not terribly interesting, but it is strangely watchable. This guy Tony David is a bit of a legend actually, even though he's Australian.
Oh joy of joys, it's the work Christmas party tonight.
Just to prove my point about the earthquake the other day and the big deal people were making about it, look here - Taiwan has one at least that size literally almost every day!
Oh no! Not an earthquake measuring 4.8! Wimps.
