Marketing experiment...

Sorry to disappoint you if you have come here in anticipation of an amazing update, but you are now part of my little marketing experiment.

I Simply wanted to see how much traffic I could drive to my site through a bit of facebook status hype.

Luckily I often update my status with other hilarious updates, so you shouldn't feel cheated on that account.

In other news: I just found out we have been overpaying on our council tax and that they owe us nearly £500.

Happy Friday!

Been keeping busy

I've been insanely busy this year so far.

I got getting married (!), I have been studying for my CCNA, for my Open University BSc degree (everything passed so far, with a distinction on the M255 Java module), I've been translating and doing designing websites. Oh, yeah - and I got a new job working for an IT company in the city.

AND... On top of all that, I have also been gigging like mad with Fully FunKtional.

Happy days!

Run, Forest, run!

I've started running. And I hate running. But I had to do something to fight off my expanding gut. Like I said, I hate running, but I love tech on the other hand, so I figured that if I could sweeten the nightmare of running by injecting some tech geekery into it, that might be the answer.

Enter Nike + iPod and this fun little thing that says how much I have (or haven't) worked out.

Don't judge me....

[UPDATE - The below widget which shows (or should show) my runs only seems to work half the time. Well done, Nike]

The times they are a-changing

I have decided that I will be moving my site to a different CMS - WordPress.

I am getting bored with my old site and some of its content. A lot of it is remnants from what now seems like an distant past.

So keep an eye out for a brand new site very soon!

Open University

OUlogo230.jpg

Traditional education for some reason never really appealed to me. I never went to university and only have what would be the equivalent of a few English A-Levels. It is not that I couldn't have gone - I simply just didn't feel like it and there were other things that were much higher on my agenda. I have a few theories about why this is, but that is a post for another day.

Anyway.... I always spend a good part of my day geeking around with web design, reading tech blogs and generally keeping up with what's going on in the tech world, but I was missing using my brain in a more structured manner. So I recently decided to do a degree in Computing & Business at the Open University. I am at present 2/3 of the way into the first module of the degree and I am really enjoying it. I was a bit apprehensive that I wouldn't be able to get into the routine that studying takes and get the assignments handed in - but it has turned out to be no problem at all. So far at least!

Flickr photos / Flickr map

I have set up an account with Flickr to host the photos I take on my iPhone.

Now, one of the (many, many, many...) cool things about the iPhone is that it geotags your photos so you can view them on a map as well.

Enjoy!

Rock!

I finally managed to make a page about the rock bit of me - about time, really, considering that's all I've been doing for the past couple of years.

Raul Midon - genius a work!

Just got back from the Barbican Centre, London where I saw Raul Midon for the 2nd time. The man is incredible and should not be missed for anything. Check him out here. Words fail to describe his talent:

Pharaoh's got nothing on me



Now, I am of the belief that when you're dead, you're dead. That's it - lights out, power off, they can cancel your subscriptions and your neighbour can stop feeding the dogs. But... That doesn't mean you can have a cool place to store what's left. So I reserved my place in the next great pyramid. It's going to be built in Germany apparently.

Wanna be neighbours? Your reservation is only a few clicks away...
