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 pretending they are the centre of the universe reduces my vocabulary to four letter words — 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. 'Coz propah spelling is so last century.

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.

  • The changing face of broadcast TV

    · 1167 words (wastes about 6 mins)

    The BBC are desperate. They need your money so badly, they’ve changed the way they impose their tax, regardless of how you consume TV. I don’t think they have the resources to do that.

  • Security without atoms

    · 174 words (kills less than a minute)

    Ambiguous signage is a pet love of mine. Saving a few bucks to print less is fine, unless the meaning can be misinterpreted.

  • Down with negative logic in programming

    · 699 words (wastes about 4 mins)

    I’m on the warpath against any programmers that employ negative logic in their code. Desist from never supplying positive assertions. Right now.

  • Samsung / Kit-Kat battery drain weirdness

    · 742 words (eats up about 4 mins)

    Android is alright as far as operating systems go. It’s no iOS, but far more usable than Windows phone software. Unless it starts eating your battery.

  • Pimp my MacBook

    · 1426 words (laps up about 7 mins)

    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

    · 761 words (munches about 4 mins)

    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.
