IE9 Beta Available Today

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 16-09-2010

To be honest, I’ve not used IE since Firefox came out, so I’m probably going to struggle to see the¬†difference¬†between IE8 and IE9. Still, like most good developers, I’ll be downloading the beta and trying it out. It’s also handy to see in advance whether the websites you’ve built are compatible.

Mid-Week Blues

Posted by | Posted in Entertainment, Geek Stuff, The 9-To-5 Droll | Posted on 30-09-2009

I’m in a bit of a bad mood this morning. Being late for work through no fault of my own is starting to piss me off as much as it probably pisses off the Powers That Be. Is it that hard to find a decent cab company these days? Disorganisation is the name of their game, baby!

Bada Bing, Bada Boom!

(Yeah OK, so everyone has made that joke…)

Today saw the release of Bing, Microsoft’s rebranded and re-launched web search service. Having had a little play about with it, I can safely say that I like it. Then again, it’s quite a lot like Google Search really.

Yes! It’s Friday again – the best day of the week. It might be pouring with rain outside, the economy might have gone belly up, and I might not have dropped the kids off at the pool yet this morning, but it’s still a great day!

I’m not entirely sure what a Wednesday is supposed to feel like, but whatever it is, this isn’t it.

In The Middle Of It All…

Posted by | Posted in Technology, The 9-To-5 Droll | Posted on 29-12-2008

…and by “it all” I mean “the festivities, but I still have to go back to work”.

Still, you can’t win ’em all. I have had three three-day working weeks in a row, which is awesome because it means I’ve had more time off work than I have at work. I’ve noticed that there are certain things that I tend not to get done so much while I’m not at work – and I don’t mean the work stuff I should be doing at work. Posting on this blog, and also going down the gym, are the two things that I never seem to manage outside of working hours. That, and reading the BBC tech news site, deleting my spam emails, and keeping up with the goings-on on various forums.

Werd To The Old School

Posted by | Posted in Finance, Random, Tunes | Posted on 15-10-2008

“Run for the hills!… No, wait, The Hills Have Eyes.”

Yesterday evening I was paid a visit by a family member who’d been stashing away quite a few things of mine for a number of years.
