2003 (03) AUDI A4 1.9 TDI 100 Sport 4dr Diesel Saloon
PAS,Drivers airbag, Passenger airbag, Side airbags, ABS, Remote central locking. 17" alloys.
Perfect condition, one owner. Full Audi Service History. 11 months tax and MOT.
This is pretty much the suggested price from Parkers and it is in great condition.
If you're interested, contact me or comment here.
So, I'm selling my Audi, but I've had it for 3 years and even though I'll miss it, it is time to move on :)
As standard I've put the car in Auto Trader , but I thought as a little experiment I would put it on here too. If I sell it through this page, then great, but I kind of want to see how high up in Google I get and how many people land on this page.
Update: Decided to keep it in the end, just isn't worth getting rid of considering how much I've invested in it over the last 3 years...may as well enjoy it now that I've paid for the depreciation

Google's ten golden rules are an interesting read to get a feel for what makes Google tick. My favourite:
Encourage creativity. Google engineers can spend up to 20 percent of their time on a project of their choice. There is, of course, an approval process and some oversight, but basically we want to allow creative people to be creative. One of our not-so-secret weapons is our ideas mailing list: a companywide suggestion box where people can post ideas ranging from parking procedures to the next killer app. The software allows for everyone to comment on and rate ideas, permitting the best ideas to percolate to the top.

Following my discovery that Blinkx were being slightly misleading about their deal to show Warwick content, it shows the importance of knowing what people are saying about you or your organisation on the web.
I know we all occasionally do a little vanity search for our name on Google, but ideally you'd have new results sent to you when they happen.
Do you know what people are saying about you online?

If you want to know what the rest of the world is saying about Warwick, you can do a little search on Google News for "warwick university" and it'll come back with a surprising number of references to Warwick. However, you don't want to do this every day so you can subscribe to a result via the RSS feeds:
I keep an eye on this out of curiosity to see what our press concious researchers and students might be getting up to.

Looks like Google has had another bright idea…what a surprise. They are now allowing sign up to GMail to everyone, not just by invitation. However, the twist is that they are going to make you put in a mobile phone number and they will send you an activation code. Genius. Not only do they take a huge step towards preventing account abuse through spammers signing up for masses of accouts, but they also manage to get their grubby little hands on your mobile phone number.
You’ve got to hand it to them, you really do.

Looks like Google has rolled out yet another service…there really is just nothing slowing them down.
They have released in Beta a service called Google Talk which is basically their take on IM'ing (MSN,AIM,ICQ,etc.). It's based on the Jabber protocol so that you don't even have to use their client if you don't want to, but judging by the usability of their other products, you may as well.
You can login with your GMail account (which I just realised is still invite only…although everyone has millions of invites) and start IM'ing straight away.
It's hard to tell what affect this is going to have…are people really ready to move away from MSN, AIM, Yahoo, ICQ and co.?
I won't go into it's features because I've not even tried it yet, but you can find out more here on their Getting Started page

Some techy soul has been good enough to upload their video of University of Warwick 40th Anniversary Gala Concert fireworks display to Google Video
For anyone who wasn't their and doesn't believe how great the display was…take a look. If you've got any videos of your own you want hosted for free and want the world to see, just upload them. Warwick Shootout entries anyone?
