Out of whack

Ouchy My back isn’t mega-sore if I keep it moving. That makes sitting down at a computer to do work a little annoying… hence the reason I’m still awake at 1am doing some work. Thankfully it’s improving every day. Happy Birthday! Visited my Gran tonight on the occasion of her 87th birthday. She’s finally out…

15 years

Yesterday marked the 15th anniversary of when some bloke, sorry SIR some bloke, published some files on an international network. Since then a lot has changed. Some of it good, some of it bad, some of it mediocre, some of it, er, unmediocre. I first stumbled across the internet in my first job. After being…

Lunching with the diva

Reading time: < 1 min

Of the pixel variety. Always good to meet a fellow blogger, and as we’ve “known” each other for several years (before she was a diva in fact) it was extra special to spend a pleasant lunch in the company of pixeldiva herself. We chatted about all sorts, as us eclectic bloggers are known to do,…

One simple fact is indisputable; I don’t see my friends often enough. Granted one spends a large amount of the year in other countries and one lives in London, but the other two live and work nearby and there is no excuse other than the usual “time flies” nonsense… which isn’t as much an excuse…

… it’s Friday afternoon when talk turns to what functionality a “who’s turn is it to make the tea” .Net app would have. So far we have something that would send an email or MSN message to the next person in the rota, still arguing about the ideal amount of time between the rounds of…

A note to “Benny”. I ain’t gonna add you to my MSN contact list unless I know who you are – drop me an email please. On that note, I’ve had a veritable spate of emails recently from all sorts of different people and places. Fascinating. In my head I have a notion of what/who…

A nameless person (well he does have a name but I’m not disclosing it here, he has been popping up in the comments recently though) and I had an MSN chat about THAT article today. Note: This is edited, mainly to make me look better … ¿Dónde están los banjos? says: He reminds of a…

Despite waffling on about it, I don’t have a new stereo. In fact as of last week I don’t have an old stereo either. I won’t be replacing it as I have a surround sound DVD system which happily plays CDs, MP3 CDs and accepts an input from the iPod (although at some point it’ll…

Ahhh the morning commute – trains delayed, cancelled, packed to the gunnels – how I’ve missed you. Still, only three days at work then six days off. Only three days. Only three days. Mind you the weather in Malaga doesn’t look too great at the moment but then it’ll be better than it is here….

So AudioScrobbler is in the midst of some Planned Downtime (as is ‘sister’ site Last FM) and HaloScan is currently having a few issues since introducing a new server. Blogrolling seems to be the most stable of the bunch now, but then there is a business behind that service. One thing that everyone who uses…

Spam

I don’t pay much attention to Spam, if they make it to my mailbox (which they do at work as they won’t let me use MailWasher.. pah!) I usually just Shift+Delete the buggers. But then I installed Office 2003, and Outlook has a new message notification thingy – it’s quite smart actually – which pops…

Blog to the Future?

Reading time: 2 mins

The recent Bloggers Xmas Party (in London), and an aside by Lori has pinged a little light bulb in my head. I doubt I’m the first to think of this… By all accounts, the Bloggers Xmas Party was a huge success, and already there are little in-jokes springing up, jokes that, if you weren’t there,…
