I’m quite good at time travel. It’s easy, as long as you only want to go forwards
Now that I’m working on the final module of my MEd, I found myself wondering what advice I would offer myself if I could travel back to the start.
1. Nothing is more important than sleep and [...]
I was obviously a bit too quick off the mark when I tried to grab the link for a Dropbox file that hadn’t finished uploading.
Ask Dropbox to do the impossible and it responds by showing a very nice impossible Dropbox:
Like it. Now I want to design some [...]
I never studied economics at school, so I sometimes feel a little bemused by the workings and terminology used. I have noticed a few things though:
When the price of oil goes up, the price of petrol goes up.
When the price of oil comes down, the price of petrol goes up.
When tax goes [...]
I live on the dullest road in Sheffield. It’s lovely.
My road goes nowhere, so it’s quiet.
As far as I am aware, my neighbours are unlikely to attract the attentions of any passing paparazzo, so, as I said, it’s quiet.
Which leaves me wondering why I passed a camera crew at the top [...]
It may be unpatriotic, it may even be treasonous, but I’m going to say it anyway: football bores me to tears.
I’ve no problem with other people liking it, nor do I mind the fact that almost everyone else in Eng-er-land has festooned their home/car/bicycle/cat with Eng-er-land flags, I just don’t really want to join [...]
I seem to have been the lucky recipient of an awful lot of SPAM comments over the last few weeks. Is there a lot more SPAM around lately? I certainly never saw this much when using Haloscan. I wonder why?
Interesting how many identical generic – but not quite appropriate – comments have turned up [...]

I’ve watched this several times now. Not entirely sure why, but it makes me LOL. Literally.
I’m also quite amazed at the level of technology that is obviously packed into this little toy: watch it change direction when it hits a corner. Clever stuff.
Will I [...]
I rediscovered a misplaced memory yesterday: I suddenly remembered how my grandparents used to carefully remove the ‘seal-oh-tape’ (as they always called it) from used wrapping paper. The paper was then folded carefully away to be reused – after all, as I was always told, it was still perfectly good. This paper might resurface wrapped [...]
Amazingly, 99% of my blog-move seems to have gone without a hitch.
My main worry was that I would put off the small band of lovely people who kept visiting the old place, despite having to put up with my haphazard posting schedule, but it seems that my concerns were unfounded. I’d like to thank [...]
Oh my, I’ve been rather quiet here of late. Can I blame work, or shall I go straight for a plea of insanity?
Anyhoo, I haven’t evaporated/been kidnapped by aliens/fallen down a well. I am perfectly fine, just doing too much for my own good (as usual).
However, I am going to be making a [...]
