It’s a bit weird round here at the moment. I got offered a council flat and my hard disk died on the same day, and even though the former is fantastic news the blow of the latter has stunned me into some numb kind of equilibrium. I think the idea of moving out of the [...]

Battling with the old foe here. Thought I’d been dealt a fairly serious blow but my man Steve and his old Linux laptop gained an edge at the last moment when most hope was lost. As I type my hard disk seems to be dying again on my desktop but fingers crossed I have been [...]

Some things that have come my way recently. Since I’m too stupid to post multiple pictures with accompanying text in the right place you’ll have to guess which is which. Clue: they are not mixed up.
Edit: Having some voodoo problems finishing this post so I’ll just leave it as it is for now. There was [...]
