Rebel Wars

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Taken straight from the PROC forum. One forum member corkoniense took it upon himself to lighten the mood in what is now a 600+ page, 6,441 comment and 290,000+ view thread on the Cork Hurlers strike.

In his own words
“Me and a mate have put together a Downfall + Empire Strikes Back combination scene for your viewing. The script is Corkoniense’s, so sue me frank you sonofabitch. The tech wizardry is all my mate’s doing, as I don’t have a clue of these things, so kudos to him.

Remember: All characters in this movie are actors, with the exception of Dr. Joseph Goebbels, who stars as himself.

Enjoy!!!!”

I can only doff my cap to you corkoniense….quality.

Airtricity Update – The Facts

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

I guess it was only a matter of time but after my post on Friday the story was covered offline in the Sunday Business Post and online on Soapbox Ireland, Office of Inadequate Security, ValueIreland, Brand Ireland and of course mulley.net.

What at first looked like a progressive step by Airtricity in engaging with the online community on this issue seems to have been no more than a cursory attempt to quell any chitchat among the blogging community in relation to the data breach. Funny that the engagement only came after the SBP ran the story.

Anyway, it looks Peter Lord or at least his IP has become a regular AGH reader so here are a few new facts you can add to your list. AGH is now on page one, position ten in the organic Google search results for the key word ‘Airtricity’ and the the Airtricity Letter has been downloaded times from AGH.

When is a Legal Threat not a Legal Threat?

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

When it’s a bit of “friendly” advice! I may have been a little hasty when referring to the rocket I got on Friday as a legal threat. Looking at it again (and again) and having got “legalâ€? advice (I passed it by one of my “legal” mates) it was more advisory in tone. It was the officialdom that probably got my back up so I went off on one when in actuality the email was simply “advisingâ€? me not to liable anyone. I’m happy enough to park her there but ill wait for the official response.

March in Support of Cork Hurlers

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTY HURLERS CAN DO FOR YOU BUT RATHER WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTY HURLERS
A supporters march will take place in Cork city in support of the 2008 Cork hurling squad on Saturday February 7th.

Rebels are being asked to assemble at Emmet Place, outside Cork Opera House before 3pm after which a march will take place in the city centre.

The march is being organised by well known Cork supporter Tom ‘Bomber’ Roche, who organised last year’s successful marches, and PeoplesRepublicOfCork.com

Fans are asked to bring as much colour as possible and to spread the word to as many Corkonians as possible.

Just hours after the hurlers’ press conference and statement, a 96FM poll has showed overwhelming support for the hurlers with 2,909 texts in favour of the players and 309 against.
