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 has no long-term value — 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 can now omit vowels and apostrophes with impunity.

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.

    Beware the high street sharks masquerading as “experts”. Their currency is your fear of technology, and it’s easy to turn the tables with a little confidence, saving cash in the process.

  • Driverless cars: an accident waiting to happen

    · 1680 words (laps up about 8 mins)

    My distrust of code and programmers fuels scepticism over driverless vehicles. It’s up there with my hatred of automated checkouts. “Unexpected person in driving area”.

  • I lost my heart to Agnus, Denise & Paula

    · 1458 words (laps up about 7 mins)

    What has 16-bits, exuded cool and made PC owners cry? Why, the Amiga of course. After tiring of BASIC on the Vic20 and typing strings of hex from the back of magazines into the Spectrum, the Amiga was my new main squeeze.
