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 having a midlife crisis has me reaching for the Glock — 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. Who says I'm late to the social party?
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 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.

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

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

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.

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