Drifting Along

I'm bored and trying to think of what to write.Let's describe my desk...On the far left is a bendy lamp, and a cordless BT phone just like everybody else has. It has an answerphone on it too. Next is a CD-ROM and the left hand speaker for the main PC, then a pot plant (which …

End of Another Day

It's getting near the end of the first day of the week (and as the HR department helpfully pointed out, a fifth of the way towards the weekend).I just seem to be drifting along at the moment, not really having any interest in computers, the net or anything really. It must be the natural reaction …

Windows Free Zone

Woohoo!All the computers in the house are now running Linux... goodbye to crappy old Windows. To be honest, I have been running Windows for a few years at home (and still have to at work), but have been patiently waiting for the day when Linux would be useable as a desktop operating system (I'm talking …

Sleepy Saturday

Woohoo! I cooked dinner last night and it was great (I didn't poison indychick!!). We had Chilli, made with Quorn mince (veggie substitute - Indychick doesn't eat meat), kidney beans, tomato puree, chopped tomatoes, onion, peppers and garlic. I got the amount of "Lazy Chillies" just about right... kind of a kick to it but …

It’s Valentines Day!

It's valentines day and I was planning on leaving an hour early to pop into town and pick up some flowers and ingredients for tea... except my project manager has just veto'd that. How "jobsworth" is that? I suppose I should resist having a complete rant in case the offending idiot reads this.One lousy hour... …

How Many Hits?

Since opening the source code for this noddy little bunch of scripts last night, I've been somewhat taken aback by the number of apparent visitors into the page.I had no idea hotscripts was such a popular site - that so many people checked it out every day (or perhaps I was lucky?). It reminds me …

Opening the Source

I finally did it - I opened up the Blog script to the community.This morning (while I'm supposed to be working on commercial stuff) I had a crisis of conscience, and re-wrote a lot of the PHP behind BLOG to ummm... urrr... make it a bit more professional and stable.Some of the code to do …

Tired and Bored

I'm sat at my desk this afternoon after being in and out of the office for the last few days, and I don't really know what to do next...It turns out, after a mad scramble to get several of the projects out of the way that I am now effectively free from any specific work …

Dead on my Feet

After pulling a late nighter working on my website last night, finally getting to bed at about 2:30, the tiredness has really hit me this afternoon.It's like somebody has suddenly hung very heavy things off my eyelids or something.The ThoughtCafe website appears to be doing quite well (shocking!). I sent the newsletter out last night …
