Never use a colon at the end of a title in a document; never succeed a colon with a dash, unless you’re creating an emoticon. Thank you.

    What about three offences in one:-

    1) FOUR colons in the title,
    2) Blatant typo squatting,
    3) A flash only site that you could do the Times crossword in the time it takes to load.

    That’s one of the nicest compliments I’ve had about my blog – the thought that someone might typo-squat!

    I think ossira is some sort of Argentinian fashion site, but no doubt it gets the odd bit of traffic in search of tangential ramblings.

    I actually should have tried doing the Times crossword while it loaded, as I think you were right in your assertion – dreadful abuse of Broadband and inaccessibility to the nth degree…
