Do To-Do

Yes, I’m finding it easier to get things done with a to-do list. Mind you, having tried to use two or three on the iPhone, I’ve realised it needs to be desktop or paper-based. Unless I can find a good one that effectively stretches across iPhone and desktop in a seamless, sync’d-in fashion. Having a…

Like A Hole in the Head

I’ve become intrigued by the web of the Internet, the interrelationship between sites and pages forming organically over time. I have been spending time trying to iron out some loopholes and gaps in my site content of late, because people have linked to stuff from here in the past that I have then lost or…

So Connected It Hurts

I may reach a point where I can do everything from anywhere, with any device. Having discovered I can text to Twitter and email to Posterous, I can also reach my own blog, it would appear, via email as well. Whatever next? Facebook updates by carrier pigeon? MySpace by telegram? It never ceases to make…

Time And Relative Breakfast

I’d love to understand why I always seem to end up taking more time to have breakfast than anything else in the morning. If I want to get out early, I choose to have toast. If I want to get out really early, I skip breakfast altogether. A full toast, cereal and mug of coffee…

Serious Cereal

I have a problem with the morning… I enjoy it too much when I have the chance to read the overnight news, catch up on forums, sip coffee and chew toast/cereal. I’m not so keen on the bit that involves running around, getting showered and changed, then forging off into the dark/cold towards work (through…

Defiantly Going to Bed

Just watched Defiance. The Jews suffered incredibly in their efforts to survive – I’m thankful not to have been around during that dark time. As a retelling of a true story, it made harrowing viewing. My wife seemed stunned that it was based on true events. I’m stunned that we live in a society that…

Concealed Lighting

Yeah, I have finally managed to start the torturous process of replacing my video tapes with DVDs. Mind, I’m not talking about replacing official tapes with discs… In my youth, I had the habit of recording almost any noteworthy comedies or films on blank tapes. I have treasured copies of ‘A Bit Of Fry &…

Bank Holiday Weekend Damnation

Having off the move to the new server for a fortnight, I finally realised that delaying any longer was likely to be a risk. I’m maintaining the old and new solution at the moment, so if I don’t make haste and get the work done, I pay double for longer. Not a good idea. So,…

PS3 Slim Exchange Rate

It pains me when reading about the $300 PS3 Slim that purchasing the very same PS3 Slim Console from Amazon.co.uk will cost me the considerable sum of £249.99. Correct me if I’m wide of the mark, but isn’t the exchange rate about $1.65 to the pound sterling? I know that we’ve always suffered from the…

Holiday in Brief

Oxford was great – we’ll definitely go back. On the day after arrival we had a good wonder round. I was disappointed I couldn’t get into the Bodleian Library, but otherwise an enjoyable day wandering. Drank coffee on the site of the oldest coffee house, meandered through a few colleges, and visited Gropec*nt Lane (whoops,…
