Tweet Tweet

I have been struggling to find a Twitter client I really like for the Mac. For the iPhone, Tweetie seems like a decent choice, but it isn’t free. I rather had my heart set on finding something free I could use on the laptop. So far, I’ve tried Beak – which looks good, Twhirl –…

iPhone Chaos

I have been looking for an easy way to sort the apps on an iPhone; but, there isn’t one. I tried sorting them into categories, but adding new apps every few days meant the sorted pages rapidly got messed up. I could hack into the phone and create some sort of bastard control system. Or,…

Erase | Rewind

As happens on an irregular basis, I have gone for a complete reformatting of the boreders themes. I always like to try something a little different, ideally something at a tangent to whatever went before. So, I have cast aside the garish orange of the last theme and gone for a something subdued and minimalist.…

Child Onboard

You have to wonder, has the driver of this vehicle genuinely got a car seat installed in this car for a kid? And, if so, filled with envy of the vehicle as I am, could the kid suffer from a little car sickness just to give the Lamborghini a little added ambiance?

Demonic Intent: Round 2

Following ‘Demons’ episode 2, it occurs to me that while the series has the money to spend on CGI and fine location, they seem to lack any decent fight choreography. When I could wrestle free of my own personal demons (manifest in Philip Glenister‘s accent), it seemed that both set pieces in Episodes 1 and…

The house is quiet, except for the scuffling of various small animals in the dining room and the vague nattering of the boys in their bedroom. New Year was 40 minutes ago, and I’ve done most of the washing up. We spent the evening with friends nibbling on a buffet of snacks, and played a…

Don’t Blink

Christmas morning… a time for presents, heaps of waste paper, and embarrassing pictures of people gurning with their presents clutched in hand. Why, however, do people expect you to smile and present yourself eyes-wide-open when they’re shooting with an ultra bright flash. You can’t reasonably expect people to overcome their natural instinct to shield their…

Foot Ache

Having spent the last 10 days resting, I’m finally getting to the point where I feel the need to drive. Gotta drive, have to drive. Seriously. My foot shows signs of real improvement, but a dull twinge persists. Should I push it? Shouldn’t I? I don’t know. I suspect my ‘nurse’ would tell me to…

Tangoed Again

I spent a while looking decidedly orange… and, when I saw this WordPress theme, it seemed like time to go orange all over again. It also gave me a chance to turn my hand to a little Photoshop practice – creating the stars behind the date and the badge in the header. I need to…

Having spent the last several years visiting the coast and the dune bordered beauty of Formby, we were disappointed that the poor Red Squirrels have suffered a blow from a pox. The virus leaves them unable to eat, basically, leaving them open to starvation, too weak to protect themselves from predators like foxes. There’s no…
