Arrived in Newcastle on time, and just pulling out. The Lindisfarne reference is nothing to do with the weather, but my inability to get Facebook talking to Twitter. There must be some snaffu in someone’s software. I get asked for … Continue reading →
Here I am on the East Coast rail line, on a bright sunny day, meandering up to Edinburgh for three days of work. The jet planes all roaring over my head, marking their route with their vapour trails. I feel … Continue reading →
I have started a four week project in Edinburgh, and will be flying up and down each week. I will be staying at the Apex hotels. Monday Today ate at Hanams, a Kurdish restaurant which serves no alcohol. Yes the … Continue reading →
I have been reading some bits on the Intel Website. (Whoever said we never click on the Google Ad words?) An interesting topic with two points: We used to think of IBM mainframes and MIPS (Millions of instructions per second). Then … Continue reading →
Sunday we went to Goodwood to meet Rosemary’s niece Anne, her partner Peter, and Anne’s son, ie R’s great nephew, Colin. They were over from Canada on holiday and visiting various relatives. Robert (Anne’s brother & hence Rosemary’s nephew) and … Continue reading →
Travelled to Birmingham a couple of times this week. Monday and Tuesday I was installing some new software at the offices of One Stop. They are a small supermarket chain.

Another painless upgrade to my blogging software. I am now running version 2.7. Not sure what new features there are, except for the administrators panel which has changed. I know some, not to be named, who don’t like change, but … Continue reading →
I bought myself a new toy. It’s a mobile phone, a Nokia E71. I have to admit I am really proud of it, and can’t let an hour go by without carressing its tiny keypad, and looking at the new … Continue reading →
Rosemary and I went to Norwich for the weekend to see Ann and Mike. We visited Nick and Ali, and saw the great work they have been doing on their house. Much remodelling, removal of walls, moving staircases and a complete … Continue reading →
Wednesday 8th, just back from Bristol after spending three days working for a Supermarket. Not really much to report about the place. Stayed in the hotel for the two evenings, internet access was bad as I was on the wrong … Continue reading →
It was pointed out to me that the email subscribe function was not working. Indeed it was not, and cannot have worked for well over a year. Should all be fixed now, so hoping to see lots of subscriptions to … Continue reading →
Another Saturday morning with the chain saw cutting up logs, with Rosemary stacking them in the shed. Think the blade has gone blunt again, so gave up for lunch time. Next week will have to get the blade sharpened again.
Decided to cut down 4 willow trees. Despite all having been cut down before, they had now grown to a rather large size. Out with the chain saw, started first time and away we went cutting. Alas after several minutes … Continue reading →
Working from home to day, the weather is absolutely crap. The Blasdale field is flooded, the poor sheep are wearing (Wellington) boots today.
