I have updated my We Blog Cartoons website for the first time in quite a while with this diagram, entitled Embarrassing incidents. We Blog Cartoons is my site with cartoons that you can repost for free on your personal weblog. For print rights and suchlike please contact me.
This diagram was drawn for those who, like me, squirm continually at the thought of the things they have said and done and then regretted.
In my mind I’m beginning to compile a liturgy for the healing of embarrassing incidents. Examples would be read out, and then the congregation would respond with ‘Dear me, that is embarrassing!’ or other appropriate words. I’ve not got far with it as you can tell. If it turns out to be any good I’ll submit it to the people at Common Worship and see what happens. Or I might take it along to Synod, loiter in the corridors and see whether I can get any bishops to endorse it. To tell the truth I haven’t really looked into how one goes about these things.

As you may or may not have noticed this blog has been silent for around 44 days. Giving an account of the causes would risk a drift into the realms of the tiresome, but in summary I’ve been a bit under the weather for one reason or another. I have been keeping my paid commitments going, but some other things have been allowed to drift somewhat.
Thank you for a number of kind messages expressing good sentiments of various sorts.
Anyway, I fully intend to start this blog going again. I’m not putting any pressure on myself to do it daily, but hopefully there will be new things a number of times a week. This blog may well go back to being the place where I post any old nonsense, which in the past has tended to produce the best results.

Facebook. Don’t we all just love it. I was first sent an invitation and joined up back in November when it was still more of a student thing. I found it a really marvellous way to catch up with people who had been in my youth group when I was a youth worker, and it still is. Of course now it has mushroomed, overtaking other social networking websites by a long way in the circles I move in.
There are downsides of course. I have heard people talking about Facebook as being a sort of an online ‘gated community’ or ‘walled garden’, as discussed by this popular web blogger. I can’t remember why this is a bad thing, but I seem to recall that it is. Something to do with the fact that if you are in inside it is all very well, but outside there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Then there are the security and privacy aspects, which do concern me. Richard has some things to say about this. I’m wondering whether there are implications that we haven’t quite realised yet. I know you can set your privacy levels and everything, but I think there are some security issues that will become apparent before too long. Some of us might just realise that we’ve shared just a little too much with just a few too many people. There are people I know who have chosen not to be a part of Facebook -perhaps one day we will realise how wise they were.
One of the good things about Facebook is that for most people it isn’t a mad rush to get numbers of friends, as Myspace often seems to be. There are people who have 700 friends or 1286 friends or something like that. These are, one supposes, people who will be friends with anything that moves. Personally I tend to prefer to only add people as friends if I know them… more or less. I’m not sure what the social implications of not adding someone as a friend are if they request it. I suppose they’ll just hate you for ever.

Today I learned that an important work-related e-mail had not reached its recipient. Fortunately the person got in touch with me, but I suspect often they don’t and we all just assume that other people did not get around to replying and are a bit slack or rude or busy or hate us. Those of us who rely on the internet for business purposes lose money as a result.
According to a shocking statistic that I have just made up e-mail will be entirely useless in 5 to 7 years time as the systems will be so overrun with spam to as to be unworkable. It will all grind to a halt and there will be a small cloud of smoke, a medium-sized ‘pop!’ and that will be it.
In the meantime if you have not received a reply to an e-mail that you have sent me it is definitely because it has got lost in the internet. Unless you are one of the 113 people to whom I have not replied of course.

This one can be used on your own blog too. Simply go to We Blog Cartoons and find the secret code. The code will be one of the first things you see, so it is not really that secret.

This is not the first procrastination cartoon I have done, hence the ’2′ in the title.

Talking of technical things I rather enjoyed reading Andrew the Tall Skinny Kiwi’s explanation of ‘domain mapping’ this morning. It’s a fairly heavy and uninteresting subject for the likes of you and me, but he explains it in a way that put a smile on my face if no-one elses.
As a further tangential and even more uninteresting aside I became aware that I am more or less the only person on the planet who uses the phrase ‘your coaches will wait’, which used to be a regular expression at altar calls at the Billy Graham and other similar evangelistic rallies I attended in my youth. There are three uses of the term on the internet, of whom two are me and one is in the description of a Greenbelt panel with Martin Wroe.
