One year

Well, today I head over to FOSDEM with some guys from work. I have never been there, so I am intrigued to see whether it will be interesting or monotonous. I have heard good reports of people who have been to FOSDEM, so I am quite looking forward to getting over. My plane sets off […]

Wow, I have failed to clock on with the blog for a few days. This is mainly because my parents came up to stay at the weekend. We had a really great few days and had a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing them soon. When they had set off on Sunday, I […]

Thrash on

Phew! A few days have passed since I last blogged, and things have been incredibly hectic. Just to complicate matters, I did actually write up a blog entry the day before yesterday and never got round to posting it (I fell asleep on the couch). I have since tried to hunt it out and I […]

Impacted impact

Back in black

Well, it appears like we are back again. After a few days downtime (including a day of service-so-unstable-it-was-virtually-down-anyway-time), it appears we are back. Let me explain what happened. On Thursday night I tried to access and it was unavailable. I tried to log into the admin shell and that was down too. I suspected […]

Three things

Got into work today after a stupid amount of time on the M6 this morning and did some research into some assists that we are working towards. This afternoon I then had another meeting with the chap about Open Source CAD software development. The meeting went well and I wish him every success in achieving […]

CADre Ozz

OK, first off, I apologise for my failure to upload my LUG Christmas bash photos. Last night was a bit hectic with me finishing off some bits on an article and then falling asleep in front of Smallville (that annoyed the hell out of me). Today I got into work and discussed a project we […]
