Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter et al diluted the realtime pool.
Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people having a midlife crisis makes me long for a 'Shut up' button — 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.

I’m not going to apologise for this coronavirus post. It’s likely to piss you off. That’s the point. Check you’re wearing your big trousers then dive in if you think you can handle it.

I have hundreds and hundreds of DVDs taking up space on shelves in my living room. A huge investment that I don’t want to lose, and I love movies. Time to get my geek on and find a better way. Step into my parlour to see how I did it…
