Blog

c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter and Google+ diluted the realtime pool.

Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people copying and pasting the same thing to each other is stupefyingly pointless — I figured why not make a blog? The main difference here compared with other people's blogs is that instead of being limited to one topic, you get a little slice of everything all mashed up. I'm too good to be tweeting.

N.B. The views expressed herein are not my own: they have been carefully shaped by a barrage of mainstream media propaganda and fill-in-the-blanks guesswork. Also, I'm prone to lying for the sake of entertainment.

    An episode in hardware upgrading for a mid-2012 MacBook Pro. The road is slightly rippled with a flat underside, but well worth it.

  • Brexit: the eternal scapegoat

    All the political parties are in turmoil after the EU referendum result. Nobody has a plan. Nobody wants to deal with it. Fine, I’ll do it then.

    You know that little sachet of crystals you find in stuff you buy? The one you keep for no apparent reason. Who’s ever eaten one?

  • EU exit: the aftermath

    So the UK narrowly voted to leave the EU yesterday. According to my Facebook stream, the sky is now falling. Can we gain a little perspective please?
