We’ve all worked on little home projects, even if it’s ‘just’ your website. You take pride and care in getting things how you envision them. Rustboy is a CGI film that takes that a step further as it is produced using ‘home software’. Looks.. awesome already! (via I love everything)

Meetings all day. Work done = zero. How does that work then? Still, working at home tomorrow and Friday, reviewing some documents and doing a little research into some stuff for work (XML, single source, can’t say more than that). Managed to get some pics done for the Blogathon/26 things at lunchtime. Only a few…

Lyle is now at Dummies for Destruction. Seems like Wiley have finally played their ‘big boy’ card and had his old site pulled. So update your links y’all, and remember, Wiley publishing is evil*. * In my opinion of course

Jann asks if he needs to be a limited company. Something I’ve been meaning to ask recently as well, so extended thanks to Lyle for his wise words (now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write…). Ohh and Steve, I hope your offer extends in my direction too…

A couple of work colleagues are leaving. Off to try the luck at other companies/ventures. It’s always sad to see people leave, especially people you like, and trust, and are a pleasure to work with. Why is it that the complete arseholes never leave? I digress … In the time honoured tradition, a ‘Sorry you…

A few impromptu beers after work yesterday turned into a dash for the last train home. I also discovered Kronenburg makes me feel ill (or maybe it was the lack of dinner…). Today we collected several photo’s for my 26 things entry, and I’m hoping to get a picture of the sunset tonight. Mind you…
