  • Four years????

    It really can’t be four years since I wrote a blog post here. That’s a very long time to not let the world know what I’ve been up to. Quick summary: Not that much..

  • The mid-life crisis officially starts NOW.

    So I appear to have bought a bass guitar. This is an unexpected development for the year. I wasn’t planning on it at all, although I’d started to have favourable feelings about the idea of trying to learn bass guitar a little while ago after I discovered that I preferred following basslines to lead guitar […]

  • Too.Much.Tech.

    Tonight I have found that I have lost a scanner. Well it is definitely in the house. But I cannot see it. For other pieces of tech. It is this that has lead me to the realisation that I have too much tech. New Tech. Current Tech. Tech nearing the end of its life. Dead […]

  • Drop

    I dropped my iPhone on the floor this morning. It is fine, I’m typing on it now. What occurred to me though was how underworried I was that it would be okay. I have dropped it before, on harder surfaces, and it was fine. I’ve got insurance. And it is close to being due for […]

  • Happy Birthday to Me

    38 years old today. Great weekend to celebrate it, wandered round the Steampunk exhibition in town, then a nice walk around Oxford, followed by a cracking meal at Shanghai 30s. Scalextric was my main pressie, a fitting addition to a growing collection for a man of my advanced age. Not really pondered too much the […]

  • And so that was Christmas

    Well, nearly done with the Christmas season now. Not back to work until the 4th, so taking it nice and easy. Managed to watch the first series of the Sopranos in just a tad over 24 hours, so that was something approaching an achievement. Have also done some tidying, sorting and organising, which also counts. […]

  • Chilling in Norway

    <img class="alignnone" title="Waterfall" src="https://i2.wp.com/farm3.static le viagra 100.flickr.com/2279/3536645012_37c5530266.jpg?resize=500%2C333″ alt=”” data-recalc-dims=”1″ /> Drawing towards the end of a great week in Norway. Highlight has to have been a fjord cruise yesterday, absolutely stunning scenery that I took a full memory card’s worth of pictures of. In general, it has involved wandering round a pretty little Norwegian town, […]

  • Glasses

    I wear glasses, pretty much full-time. I’ve got to thinking this week, why do my glasses at best simply get my sight up to a working level? Why can’t I have some bonus functionality built it? If I’m going to stick some metal and glass on my face, I should at least have a zoom […]
