I really shouldn’t use that as a title for a post, all I now have in my head is Chandler (from Friends) talking about how funny it would be to have a Merge road-sign above the bed (“MERRGE”). Anyway, the week is rolling past at a fair old lick, and the countdown to our trip…Continue reading Merge


Only a couple of weeks after mentioning my dual monitor setup at work and what happens? They buy us all 19″ LCD screens, no more old flickering CRTs.. woo hoo… AND I get a RAM upgrade for my laptop (2GB now). AND tonight is the Champions League final.

George Square is packed with Spanish and German fans (check the two live webcams) and the atmosphere reminds me of a carnival. This is the side of a sporting event you don’t often get to witness, and I’m loving it. I…Continue reading Champion!

Coming up

Wednesday morning, drizzle falling. Busy day ahead, lots of documents to work on, 5-a-side later, and the Champions League final – from the glorious city of Glasgow – later. Then tomorrow, Attack of the Clones. I’m beginning to get excited…
