Copenhagen Diary

Copenhagen is lovely. I sit here, mid-conference, catching up on emails (only 250 to go). Will write more about it when I return, but the one thing that everyone I’ve spoken to agrees on, this is a lovely city. Clean, efficient and very friendly (I was thanked for my smile last night…), standard of living…Continue reading Copenhagen Diary


Man it sucks living in the UK. The Lakers win the championship and I don’t get to see one game of the Finals… hell I don’t even know if I will be able to catch any highlights… American Football, Baseball, Champ Car all get regular coverage, we have basketball courts in our parks, and every…Continue reading B'Ball


Been listening to a track by Bjork. It’s on one of those free CDs I got with the latest issue of Empire. Brass band playing, nice drop beat going on. Wish I could remember it’s name. Jury service is over. Trial was postponed. What a colossal waste of money (and time). Still means I can…Continue reading Catchup

Future now

Survived footie. Night out (company thing) in Stirling, should be fun, haven’t been drunk for ages! I’ve downloaded NextStart in another step to finding a system I can use – very customisable, skinnable etc etc. Might even lead to me rekindle my interest in design software skins, but not until I’ve finished the website re-design……Continue reading Fiasco


“That is not the way to make policy in Britain and as far as I am concerned it never will be.” – Tony Blair. Totally agree Tony. Well said. We can’t have a government that is dictated to, that’s the entire point in voting, elections and the democratic process. Slight problem though, aren’t the people…Continue reading Petrol


I enjoy working with computers. It may be sad, but it is true. I will quite happily sit for hours on end, tweaking a database design, updating a website, designing a skin etc etc. I don’t play games on it much. Recently though, it’s been taking over a bit. I’ve been spending more and more…Continue reading Upbeat
