On Leave

The next big step… blogging from my home PC! I’m on leave from work for a few day. I was trying to figure out how to personalise the search templates but it all got a bit confusing! I’ll study the manual and perfect my technique soon. Don’t hold your breath!


New functionality added today will keep you in touch with the weather in london. Very useful, if you’re me! All the way from a site called weatherpixie.com. Although I’d like to have a weather pixie that looks like me…is that a bit odd?

24 DVD

What a right royal mess. It seems that the DVD release of 24 is incomplete! I bought it when it came out and apparently they have released the US broadcast in the UK which means that there are bits missing in the UK release of 24, bits that were not shown in the US but…

On a roll

Hey, now I’m blogging from the homestead. It seems to be all working fine.

The afternoon after

Been working on this for a few days now and I’ve ironed out some of the creases. I’ve imported the old blog from www.blogger.com. That was an excellent place to start off, but this was the plunge I needed to take. When I have a little more time I’ll reconfigure the templates so it looks…
