No show ESR

We went to the South Birmingham LUG (SBLUG) meet last night where ESR was due to speak, but he left them in the lurch and pulled out. I really felt for these guys as they had worked damn hard to host the evening and they had laid on a buffet. Tim from SBLUG asked me […]

Advocating the right way

I have been thinking about advocacy a fair bit recently. I tend to think about it quite a bit and write about it in my Linux Format column Spreading The Word. There is no doubt that advocacy can be done in right and wrong ways. Their is a fine line between an enthusiastic user and […]

New design

If you are reading this from my RSS feed or are living under a stone, you may not have noticed that I have changed the design to my site. Those of you who are actually reading this (or can’t read it due to some horrific bug that I have not fixed) will see the new […]

Busy

Yes folks, there is no new site up here yet. I was planning on doing it last night but I was exhausted and needed sleep. This was partially due to having very little sleep recently and the additional excuse that we had a new mattress delivered and I had been out to the LUG and […]

Nearly there

I have been hacking my new site design again, and last night I got most of it completed. It is looking cool now. It does not really look that much different in terms of visual appeal, but it contains a stack of new little extras that make the site easier to use. I still have […]
