Look out, Canadians – probably something you’re quite used to according to the BBC are bears coming out of hibernation and looking for food, however, you may not want to sleep in the little bear’s bed and eat his porridge according to this BBC news article.

Well, what a weekend. We had a fantastic time training in Cheddar this weekend. The place we stayed was incredible (there will be pics soon), absoutely stunning with some great people there. The rockfaces were fun (including the falling boulders!) and we did some excellent training – perhaps not everything that we wanted to get […]

Well, just a very quick update as I’m using someone else’s laptop. We arrived in Swallet Farm near Cheddar yesterday and had a nice evening mostly chilling out. Today has been much fun, with lots of horizontal lowers and pick-offs on the rockface. Both mobile and internet reception here are dodgy to say the least, […]

What a night. I went to bed around 0100 after talking to Sean – he’s arrived in Canada which was not without its drama but nothing he couldn’t handle, bless ‘im. So 0300 I was up getting druugs. My hayfever was the worst it’s been in years, actually waking me up and not letting me […]

Jon and I popped over to Cathays Park this afternoon for lunchtime as we typically do when the weather’s nice (Note: must take some photographs of the area one day). We usually sit in the sunshine muching away and putting the world in its place. Today was a continuation of the recent theme which is […]

Ok so that title’s got nothing to do with this post, but it’s a cool title for something. Discussed at length this mornign, it was one of the occasional pearls that I get. Sean’s probably at Gatwick by now getting ready to get on his flight which leaves in an hour or so. He was […]

So this three-way conversation is very odd. I’m on the phone to Sean. Sean is on Sype to Jon. Jon and I are in the office together. It’s almost, but not quite a three-way conversation. Makes for amusing misunderstandings…most of which are on purpose. *giggle*

Well, what a fun day. Today we finally got approval to change from a proprietary concurrent versioning system to Subversion. It was also the day we had permission to take our core product to a new level by standardising accross all of our customers and starting the long road towards a periodic release and patching […]

Isn’t it odd how you get used to the little features of an IM client? My current favourite is Gtalk, mainly because at its most basic level it only requires a browser. It also stores the conversations in a handy google-able format. However, it does suffer from a few problems. One is lack of file transfer […]

Gah. What a night. I was intent on going to bed early last night because I was actually quite tired. So I went up and was talking to Sean until 0100…oops. Dropped off to sleep easily enough though… …to be woken at around 0200 by my legs itching. On Saturday Jon and I went a-wandering […]
