New ISTC Website is live

http://www.istc.org.uk

It’s Friday the 13th (still!) what better day to announce that the new ISTC website is going live.

I have just updated the domain nameservers to point to the new website. It can take a day or so for these things to propagate through the Internet so it might not appear immediately for everyone.

If you experience any problems or spot anything that needs corrected please let me know.

I have still to upload all of the InfoPlus and Communicator archives, but aside from that, the rest of the content should be available.

Not stopping…

But thought I’d say hello.

Gosh, quite a lot has happened in the past, what, 10 days.. hang on, IS THAT ALL? Blimey.

So, I bought a new car. It’s blue (Horizon Turquoise Blue to you). It’s a hybrid. It has a few nice gadgets. It’s quite small. It’s rather bloody lovely and looks like this:

Honda CRZ.

That website is about to get switched on so I will have a fair bit less stress and will finally be able to build my Lego Space Shuttle (my promise to myself for getting it launched… see what I did there…).

I’ve lost some more weight.

Then put some of it back on.

Then lost some more. The trend is still downwards but I also ended up on antibiotics so I’m not disheartened. Determined still!

I have also toyed with writing up my own inner thoughts as I continue to battle to lose weight, largely prompted by reading The Skinny Conspiracy which, if you battle with your weight, or an eating disorder, or just generally struggle with your own body image, then you might want to give it a read.

Ohh yeah, and one of several PPI claims came back with a settlement figure that was a VERY nice surprise (five figures nice!). So my ex-wife and I get a nice wee pot of cash. Smiles all round for that one.

Anyway, can’t stop. Website to launch and need to read up on my holiday.

Oh yeah… off to Tunisia at the start of May… didn’t I mention that?

Back on the bike

April?

APRIL!

What the…

How does this happen?!

Anyway, life continues apace (it seems). Holidays are being booked, cars being pondered, and still in the background a website remains unfinished. Must. Get. It. Done.

Weight continues to fluctuate, the last two weeks I’ve been ill (again) and as the course of antibiotics finishes I’m getting back on track, and back on my bike. Need to get rid of 5kg ASAP!

I know I work best when I have a goal so my first is a 50-mile pootle along the Forth & Clyde canal on the 20th May. Plan is to cycle to work a few times, and hopefully fit in a couple of weekend cycles from Glasgow to Balloch as well to get my legs moving. Add in a few games of basketball, the occasional game of badminton and I should be back on track in no time.
