25 August 2005

Our company recently updated my colleague’s aging Powerbook to a brand spanking new dual-G5 desktop with a 20” Apple Cinema Display.

The missing "About" section

13 August 2005

After some "encouragement" (i.e. somebody pointing out that it doesn't look good for somebody running a web development company to have a broken section on his blog), I've finally, after two years, sat down and wrote an "about" section for this website.

Ardales, Spain

07 August 2005

Today we took a trip to a day trip to Ardales, Spain - about an hour and a bit from home. We'd hoped to visit El Chorro, home of the (in)famous Camino del Rey. Unfortunately, the road to El Chorro was cut, and, being Spain, without any notice of why or how long it will remain so.
