Does anyone else do this? Is it just me? Read on… Louise is on holiday today, tomorrow and Monday. I’ll be in work those days. That’s fine. No problem. My usual travel partner is also on holiday (it’s her birthday). No problem there either. I’ll take the car to the station. I can use the…

Still stuck for some reason, maybe there is too much going on. Work is getting hectic and veering from the normal everyday work to discussions of a bigger nature about processes and business analysis and … etc etc. But then it’s always been like that, well it has for me anyway, and to be honest…

Still stuck

I DO want to say a lot about the various factors involved in this article: Powazek: Just a Thought: The “Kostroversy” Context. But I’m not going to as I’m still trying to separate the emotional from the factual. I do suggest you read and explore it though.

We (bloggers) have all done it. Navel-gazing. Wondering why we bother doing this ‘quirky’ thing called blog. It may only be her 15 minutes of fame but Moi has captured it all nicely, in a very ‘look it’s just this wee thing, stop fretting about it’ kinda way. I suggest you get over there and…

Extending Kinja

As ever, Mr.Coates (Tom to his friends) moves things on in terms of the recent discussions concerning Kinja. His post, Sharing multiple digests could be kinja’s killer app, makes some excellent points and I believe he is correct in thinking that Kinja’s best chance at success would be to promote the ‘sharing’ aspect of it’s…

Still got a couple of things to sort here, I tried to add a stylesheet switcher but couldn’t get it to work, initially it’ll only offer the same look but with a bigger font size (for my visually challenged readers). I’ve shuffled a few things around, and you may need to refresh the page to…

Every now and again Louise gets ‘a notion’. Tonight the bathroom is on the receiving end, and I’m staying out of the road lest I be bleached, scrubbed and rinsed as well. So, despite having better things to do, I’ll be tweaking the CSS here.

Weblog Survey

Whilst I fear he may regret having to filter thousands (tens of?) results, University of Zurich graduate student Daniel Joerg would appreciate five minutes of your time to fill out his weblog survey.

Coffee? Check.Email by the bucketload? Check.REAL Email less than 2% of total? Check.Second coffee? Check. Yes, it’s Monday morning. Already. I’m in a surprisingly upbeat mood, which is more than can be said for the blogrolling servers (so if this site is loading s l o w l y for you, that is probably the…

New kids on the blog. You HAVE read it, right? What I really like is the way the main subject handles it.. blithely mentioning it before posting about trying to wash using hair conditioner. True class. P.S. I created that little BdJ image – so can I hang onto the tails of this publicity? No?…

Farmer’s market wasn’t up to much, I imagine it will be better as we move towards summer. The antiques fair was VERY serious, spotted several nice things and actually pondered pay £450 for one of them but decided against it… we’d like to eat this month, and next. But the highlight of the day has…

Farming antiques

It worked! The rubber sheet (about 5 cm thick) under the washing machine did the trick. Cheers Keith! So today (well once I’ve gone to bed and gotten back up) we’ll be driving through to my parents and then on to Loch Lomond for the farmer’s market and an antiques fair. Then it’ll be lunch…

Grand National

Oops, almost forgot. Grand National in about 10 minutes or so… ohh it appears to be late starting… Not a horse racing fan to be honest but I don’t mind a 50p flutter in the office sweepstake. Just wish I could remember which horses I pulled out of the hat! Bear on Board? Clan Royal?…

I can’t keep up. Orkut, Kinja, Bloglines, GMail, the list goes on, and doesn’t seem to be slowing any. I’ve signed up to all of the aforementioned services (except Gmail as it ain’t open yet) but I’m beginning to question why. I’ve rarely looked back at Orkut after the initial 2-3 week novelty period wore…
