My parents did an excellent job in bringing me up. Putting aside the fact that I have to say that because they both read this blog, I do truly believe that. They taught me manners and how to have an open mind, two things I value very very highly. It is with the former in…

After a long week, a night out was just what I required. The fact that the company put some cash behind the bar for us was an added bonus. Thankfully I had Saturday to myself, which is just as well as I spent it comatose on the couch, munching on chocolate chip muffins and Steak…

Work is crazy busy at the moment, and general life stuff is much the same. I’m still “here” but don’t expect much from me until next week. Although I do want to ask why the radio advert for the latest “over water” ride at Alton Towers (or wherever it is), closes with the line “Hold…

Isn’t it funny, sang Elton John. And he was right, about many many things. But enough of such modern day philosophy, pop music is not what I want to discuss. Not today at least (although apparently, and somewhat unrelatedly, Crowded House are back together… who knew?). Today I want to revist some of the posts…

Over the past few years, I’ve linked to various new web applications and many of them were created by 37signals (Basecamp, TaDa, BackPack and so on). I still use some of their apps but not as frequently as those offered by that other small web app company, Google. Now I’ve contacted them about this in…

Note: This has been sitting around in my drafts for ages, I consider it unfinished but that’s never stopped me from posting something before… A while ago Adrian mused (lusted?) over Apple TV sets and in the comment to that post, he rightly states that “Technology should serve it’s purpose and technology should be as…

YAY! Miniblog comments are back, just click that hash mark (the #). Yes it’s a bit clunky, and I don’t like the formatting but… it’ll do for now. It’s better than just pulling from my delicious account.. sort of…
