Random update…

I’m currently transferring all my files across hard disks since I bought a new 120 Gigabyte one yesterday to replace my dodgy 60G one. So all I can do is watch them as they transfer and try not to interfere with the process too much. I also bought a TV Card and a new microphone. […]

He emerged from his own ashes, to be forever immortal.” Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl (Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum (Egyptian).

Oingo Boingo – my introduction

BETTs and Collindale

So, seeing as I am waiting for my files to recover, I may as well write about Friday if I can stay awake. *Yawns*. Dave, myself, my mum and some of her friends went to BETTs, the educational technology fair. This is technically aimed at teachers, but Dave and I went under ‘Swale Software Consultants’, […]
