After riding the Camel Trail I've decided it's time to buy a new bike…
Some quick snaps taken on the taxi ride from Delhi IGI Airport to the Hotel
Seems like even in the most ramshackle row of falling down buildings there's always room for a Vodafone/Aircel/Nokia/Samsung/Sony Ericsson branded mobile phone shop/service centre 🙂 They don't seem to care about repairing the road, and they're not even that arsed about building the new Airport Metro link, but they do seem to love their mobiles…Continue reading “Some quick snaps taken on the taxi ride from Delhi IGI Airport to the Hotel”
Scone and coffee – takes me back to the GPT days. Where's Barney the vending machine-filler-man?
First time I've seen this in over 3 years! #Apple #macmini
I've been using a Mac Mini as my main home desktop computer since March 2006 – and it's been powered on every single day since then, giving good loyal service to the whole family. And then this morning (whilst trying to get some unauthorised 3rd party hacked-up driver to work with an un-supported webcam inContinue reading “First time I've seen this in over 3 years! #Apple #macmini”
Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" :-) #MoBB
Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" 🙂 "RT: @MobileBrainBank: 10,000 tech professionals in Finland alone made redundant since Jan. What a magnificent force for creating something new. #MoBB" retweet from MobileBrainBank (obviously). Taking the positive view on undoubtable woe casued by major redundancies in the Finnish mobile sector. Heartwarming. Maybe they could make aContinue reading “Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" 🙂 #MoBB”
More #HumanLeague nostalgia…
I’ve been on a Human League Nostalgia trip after listening to my 1980’s playlist driving home tonight… and then found some videos on YouTube: ..and then found some really ropey videos of their live performances from 2003-2009! Shock – Phil’s got no hair! Maybe he should do a Gary Glitter and get a stage wigContinue reading “More #HumanLeague nostalgia…”
The great N97 transition… I love it!
Well, at last, thanks to some serious Finnish quality, I’m happy again! That is after the boys at work had made me suffer with the appalling P990i for over 2 years – what a great disappointment that phone was. I don’t know how Sony Ericsson could ever hope to be taken seriously again after releasingContinue reading “The great N97 transition… I love it!”
Loving the Deadmau5 CD – particularly “Slip” (Thanks Zane!), “Brazil” and “I remember”… Genie-oooos! .
work :: incubator :: mess
Well, I got some serious high frequency testing done this morning – “work” to me, but my 8 year old daughter thought that some of this stuff was “an Incubator”. The Missus just thinks it’s “a mess” 🙂
hsNW :: (hack space for the NorthWest)
Getting rather excited about the prospect of a “hack space” for the North West of England. Looks like possible events are to be set-up in Liverpool, Manchester and Stockport (at the time of writing). Some discussion at http://groups.google.co.uk/group/NW-hack-space Liverpool specific venues being proposed: [LSC] http://liverpoolsocialcentre.org/ [STATIC] http://www.static-ops.org/complex.htm [CUC] http://www.novasscarman.org/contemporary-urban-centres/ Might be a useful re-cycling point for all the old-techContinue reading “hsNW :: (hack space for the NorthWest)”
Working from home – part 2
so, this working from home lark… nearly three years after it all began here we are again, cables/boxes everywhere and dining table covered! Not good for the domestic harmony!
Freezing my feet off…
…so the temperature round here’s supposed to have been 7C today – so why do my feet feel like they’re made of ice? Maybe it’s still the post-spange-40th-effects? spange photos here bah!
Trap Hoot vs. Glossal Frag
Bibble. Yeah? Smanks and Onslatt baby!
Some of my youth (!) was spent hammering away on one of these… …a Casio VL-1 (sometimes known as the VL-tone). I can remembering skipping school lunches and saving the dinner money to save up for one! It’s since become something of a cult instrument, not least because it features primitive programming/hacking capability – programmingContinue reading “Casio retro…”
Apple launch world's coolest ever product…

In no particualr order, can I share with you… and then some and of course a little bit of Watch this space… Oh, I nearly forgot! Most definitely some and some !!! Meh.
