The best day of the week is here, and better still – my manager is on annual leave. I can’t believe I’ve not made a blog post since Monday… it’s almost as if I’ve had things to do at work!

Monday Mornings (again)

Posted by | Posted in Monday Mornings | Posted on 23-02-2009

Morning one and all!

It’s everyone’s favourite morning of the week – Monday morning! For reasons that slip my mind now, last Monday morning wasn’t your typical Monday morning, and so the typical Monday Morning Blues didn’t set in. Today is like every other Monday though, and as such, it feels like one.

All About The Tech (Part Deux)

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 18-02-2009

“The first law of robotics is: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. The second law of robotics is… we do not talk about Fight Club.”

There’s a lot going on in the tech world at the moment, it seems. Yesterday saw the release of (and abundance of news stories about) Windows Mobile 6.5. Windows Mobile is the OS used in a lot of PDAs and handheld data device, and even some phones. Asides from my PDA at work, which I never seem to have for more than 5 minutes before someone robs it, is the only experience of Windows Mobile I’ve had. It seems fairly good as Windows goes, so I’ve got no complaints. I’ve also got no news, opinions, or cares about it either.

Too Much Stress!

Posted by | Posted in Random, The 9-To-5 Droll | Posted on 17-02-2009

Search Engine Optimization – Balloney?

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 14-02-2009

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO (for the lazy folk), is something I’ve been thinking about recently (wow, the excitement!) and what I’ve come to realise is that 90% of it is a complete load of bollocks.

Wanted. Dead Or Alive.

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Pirates | Posted on 13-02-2009

Well, well, well. Apparently, albeit four months late, Microsoft has put a reward of $250,000 up for grabs for information regarding the creators of the Conficker worm. You might remember about a month ago we suffered from an attack by that particular worm, that put our business out of action for a solid week. Even now we’re still getting the odd infected PC show up.

All About The Tech

Posted by | Posted in Technology | Posted on 11-02-2009

I’m almost bored with technology, but perhaps that’s because I have to use it nearly every day. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but having to use computers at work, or home, or round someone else’s house… it can all get a bit tedious.

Why Didn’t I Do Things Like This?

Posted by | Posted in Technology | Posted on 10-02-2009

On reading all of the morning bumf I get in my Inbox every day, one news article stood out: MIT Students Turn Internet Into a Sixth Human Sense. How awesome would that be?

I’ve not got much to say today, and nature calls so I’d best be quick, but for those who are interested, I’ve posted a new mix for download.
