Mark’s Desk of Dissent…


img_0109This is where I dissent from mainstream Irish republicanism and get up to all sorts of mischief these days. My laptop is stuffed so the revolution shares space with children and CBBC.

Oh my!


Maxi Cane’s Desk Part I



Maxi sent us in a few different shots of his “desk”, we are going to publish them over the coming days, each picture even more revealing then the next. Watch this space.

“I am sure you remember the clusterf%$k that was my first desk I sent in. That has since gone by the wayside and I have new digs! A bit more roomy, not as cluttered, but still totally me!”

We’ll see…….

The Desk of Tucker Mc Boots

Tucker’s desk got lost in the complicated cataloguing system employed by the monkeys that work for Desked Inc. They have been beaten. Not a lot of oval desks on show these days. We heartily approve…..

Desked and iPhones and nefarious people.

bad iPhone……

It has come to my attention, via a very scary email, that if you take a photograph of your desk with an iPhone and then submit that photo to Desked and then I or my good chum Mr Red Leeroy then publish the photo of your desk along with some pithy lines about the tidiness or otherwise of said desk then nefarious people with nefarious minds COULD, with a bit of jiggery pokery, find out where you live or work. And they can do this with frightening accuracy.

Oh my.

The email came from blog chum and photographer, Toast. He can explain the whole thing better than I….

“Ha… when you take a picture with a digital camera, it by default adds in some extended data from the camera, ‘exif’ data, now traditionally this was info to help the photographer such as f-stop used, lens type etc – all very useful, also adding more information for filing – remember that Manchester congestion thingy I rumbled? I did that by looking at the exif data for one of the photos, after seeing ‘mom with kids on white background’ i knew that it was a) America (‘mom’) and b) from a stock agency (‘on white background’) so i went to istockphoto and searched the term and found it… Well I digress, now the iphone also has a gps it puts this info into the exif data as well, thus giving your location away in each photo… its not something I realised until I looked at that photo of yours…[FROM WELL DONE FILLET-NOW REMOVED] maybe worth bearing in mind… there are things that you can do to strip out exif data, and i think, that uploading only to a certain size in blogger might do that.”

He also linked to my place of gameful employment, which was nice. Sorry did I say nice? I meant pant wettingly scary. Anyhoo I thought I should let you all know, just incase you worry bout such things. My advice is probably best not to submit photos to Desked that have been taken with your iPhone. But if you do, you do so at yer own risk.

Seriously, you cant take a poo without someone knowing about it….
