I’ve not long finished reading Shadowmagic by John Lenahan – it was free on the iTunes Store at some point in the past but I can’t remember whether it was a Starbucks promo or if it was just the free book of the week. It’s got magic and plenty of humour and I don’t care… Continue reading Shadowmagic by John Lenahan
DigitalOcean – first impressions
A couple of friends mentioned they were having a look at http://www.digitalocean.com/ as a VPS provider so I thought I’d take a quick look myself. The signup process is painless, just an email address and a password required and you’re into a control panel that is relatively uncluttered. Just a few important options down the… Continue reading DigitalOcean – first impressions
Conversion to WordPress3
After two years of not posting anything and letting my blog stagnate, I figured it was about time I started posting again. The first job was to update all the software and it seems Moveable Type (MT) has moved on considerably from the really old version that I was running. Since I last posted I’ve… Continue reading Conversion to WordPress3
Recently read: Peter James – Not dead enough
I’ve just finished reading “Not dead enough” by Peter James. It’s a crime thriller set in Brighton and Hove in the UK, and has plenty of twists although a few of the events were obviously going to happen. It was a very good read though.
Firefox and some useful add-ons
Although I use Safari for much of my browsing, I still use Firefox for a number of things. I find that playing Shartak with anything other than Firefox is painful because the Greasemonkey scripts for Shartak make it so much easier to find out where my character is. I also use Firefox whenever I need… Continue reading Firefox and some useful add-ons

We just got back from the MacLive Expo in London – it seemed smaller than last year although I could be mistaken. Here are some pictures of various parts of the expo.

Fridge water filters
Just recently our fridge water filter needed replacing and because the recommended supplier (some place in Birmingham) was out of stock I decided to look around. After a bit of searching, I found this site –American Fridge Filters. They were about 20 pounds cheaper than the place in Birmingham, replied to my enquiry quickly, had… Continue reading Fridge water filters
Reading: Dragon by Clive Cussler
I’ve been reading Dragon by Clive Cussler – it’s a good book. Plenty of action and despite not having read any other “Dirk Pitt novels” (he’s one of the lead characters) it didn’t seem to matter at all and I was able to still get into the story.
Shartak – now with added music
Before you start complaining, I didn’t go crazy and add a dodgy midi track to the Shartak website. I stumbled across a forum thread this evening and apparently Shartak players are forming their own record label. Once finished, the Heads Down tracks will be available at a MySpace account – http://www.myspace.com/headsdownriot *EDIT* URI of MySpace… Continue reading Shartak – now with added music
