Blog

Category: Corporate | 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 waste their lives telling each other about their shockingly tedious days bores me — 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. Yay, I've joined the SpaceFace / MyBook revolution.

    Don’t get me started on the “security” offered by systems like RBS Secure when buying things online. Can anyone spell snake oil?
