The Banyan Tree Website

I’ve mentioned The Banyan Tree earlier on this blog, but for new readers all you need to know is that it’s the best Indian restaurant in Peterborough. Next to the Cock Inn in Werrington to be precise.

Their new website is now live and at a glance is one of the best websites I’ve seen for a restaurant – well, would you expect anything less from the Banyan Tree?

HotUKDeals – One Day On

It’s now been 24 hours since the redesigned HotUKDeals website was launched and now I’ve had time to get acquainted with the new layout I must say it’s not all that bad.

Whilst the users on the HUKD forums are berating about being ignored in such a radical change, the guys behind the site have been firefighting a number of technical issues and it now appears that the site is working without error.

HotUKDeals Redesign Nightmare

Leading UK “deal anarchist” website, HotUKDeals has launched it’s redesign website to mixed reaction.

IOW 2008 Festival to be the best yet!

New line up announcements for the 2008 Isle of Wight Festival are flooding in fast. It’s now looking to be the best the IoW has seen in years and that’s saying something when we’ve seen The Prodigy, Foo Fighters, Coldplay and The Rolling Stones.

No Isle of Wight for me in 2008

As far as I’m concerned, for me the Isle of Wight Festival for 2008 has been cancelled.

It’s a shame because the line up is one of the best for years: The Kaiser Chiefs, Sex Pistols and The Police have been announced as headlining Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Other acts announced so far include Lily Allen, The Enemy, James, The Zutons, Kate Nash, Iggy & The Stooges and KT Tunstall.

If you’re a fan of music then without a doubt you’re going to have a fantastic time at the festival, so it’s a shame that the organisers have seen fit to well and truly fleece their customers with 2008 ticket sales.
