I thought that some updates are needed so here goes.

I have a write up of the NCSoft event in Birmingham that should be ready in the next few days.

This month has been quite busy one there has been a new window fitted, a new carpet a lick or two of paint and tomorrow a new bathroom will be in place.

On a gaming front Lord of the Rings online became very boring and samey, even tho it showed alot of promise. To pass the time I've been playing Call of Duty 4.

COD4 is all the expected normal FPS game although with some customisable options. There is an active player-basse that can allow for some differing game modes.

My favourite game Planetside has just had it's five year birthday, additional SOE have merged the 2 US based servers and now the increased player numbers are drawing alot of Khaosclan back, oce again.

Finally issue 12 of City of Heroes/Villians has been launched but more on that soon.

Whats the date?

I rarely write moaning posts so this could be a first for welshtroll.

calendar.jpgWhat annoys me no end, is that website owners/managers seem to believe news/blog/article entries only exist for 12 months. It's unclear what exactly happens to them at that point in time, maybe they just fade into the background noise or perhaps some form of internet meme appears and devours them.

What ever the answer, the fact remains that all of this items have a time stamp that takes the following characteristics : 24th July 13:45.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't there be a year in that date?

I find it highly annoying when i stumble blindly onto a website that has this year-lacking date format. It's not a large change to display a piece of data that is already stored on a database with the rest of the time stamp information, is it?

So when a user visits your website they can instantly see when the information was posted, in turn this give the user chance to judge the information and how relevant is it.
