Louise’s brother was kept in last night, and they want to keep an eye on him for a couple more hours. If he’s ok after (i.e. he stops passing blood) they’re happy for him to go home. Looks like he’s just had a bash and a small spot of internal bleeding which, fingers crossed, has stopped.

We’re off to the cinema to try and relax – phones on silent/vibrate just in case – to watch The Incredibles and maybe something else too, either Bridget Jones or The Manchurian Candidate (yeah it won’t be as good as the original, I know, I know).

And tonight I come home to clear out my PC as it’s suddenly gotten awfully full. Damn you BitTorrent, damn you, DAMN YOU AZUREUS!

Limping towards the finish line that will be the ‘members only’ launch of the Scottish Blogs website. Just need to get ONE DAMN FORM working, import some data and ‘stick a fork in me’ I’m done. I’ll let the current members play with it for a bit (which means I’ll be blocking it off temporarily with a password… maybe.. if I can be bothered) and allow them to edit their details and then the site goes live.

There are still quite a few features I want to add but I can add them later without a hit on the current users and I really need to get this off my ‘list’.

In other news (ohh hang on, can’t mention that) errr… ohh yes.


To be honest I’ve not really been happy with this site for a while, and I think the last re-design was just an effort to try and divert my attention from that fact. The next one is likely to be more radical. No timelines. No collaboration. It’ll just happen one day.

In real life: Ehhhh well… after the weekend I’m actually enjoying doing bugger all to be honest. Especially as my head is full of DTDs, EDDs, DITA, content audits, information maps and the like, it’s nice to kill a few braincells by surfing aimlessly for a while.


Was planning on getting to bed early. Forgot to wash my footie stuff from last night…dammit, dammit, dammit.
I’m in an unusually crap, narky mood this evening. Not sure why, although I could pitch a few hundred reasons, I think I’m just in a crap mood because I want to be in one.

Sounds odd, but to be honest I’ve gone through the reasons (the usual ones, and any others I can grasp at) and none really hold enough sway. Mind you I’ve been getting pissed off at myself recently. Need to develop some more integrity. I get the feeling that I’m gonna need it soon, depending what happens I may have to stick to my principles rather than take the easy option. Hopefully someone out there kinda gets what I mean, I’m not sure I do.

Actually I know someone gets it, we’ve been talking about it on and off for a while, so that person knows where I’m coming from…DAMN it’s hard to write this stuff and preserve anonymity…LOL
