Last Friday, Skype posted this notice to their status pages indicating that they were contacting users who had bought 0207 London geographic numbers for their SkypeIn accounts. SkypeIn is a service that allows Skype users to have a normal UK phone number that people can dial to reach them on Skype. There’s been nothing more around […]

It amuses me that we can deal with terrorists in London without so much as a pause. An RMT strike however brings the capital to its knees. Can we call the RMT terrorists yet?

How Malcolm can stand being an architect I do not know. Today I have been mostly trying to arrange the installation of some satellite dishes for our datacenter. Apparently, we need planning permission from the local authority…and this is what I’ve been trying to do today. How Malcolm can deal with planning and building regs […]

I was going to write a post on how thanks to someone deciding to upgrade Xorg in the FreeBSD ports tree, it caused me a problem or two. After two days of compiling, installing, tweaking, and generally spending time on trying to a desktop system working at work, I really couldn’t be arsed. I appreciate […]

My apologies for those who find offensive language intolerable – you may want to turn away now. Because words fail me in expressing my utter disgust at how fucking stupid this idiotic woman was. If you’re that bloody stupid, YOU SHOULDN’T EVEN HAVE A BLOODY DRIVING LICENSE! Right. I feel better now after that little […]

I have a few blogs that I read as part of my daily routine and a few of those have made me stop and think recently. Inspector Gadget posted some time ago about the horrifying case of a young police constable who was beaten and left in a vegetative state by what appears to be […]

I found this little gem this morning. It’s amused me and reminded me of a conversation I had with someone recently: CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s !! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, […]

Aren’t emotions funny things? Within the space of 10 minutes, I had a fantastic high off a phone call which may be giving me something I’ve been waiting for a few years for and wasn’t expecting for another few years[1]; followed by an incredible low after another phone call telling me my bank had fucked […]

Ok, so now I have at first hand a better idea of what Tom Reynolds talks about in his blog. I was on duty again with the first responders last night. Since Sean’s heading back to Aber for a bit tonight, I decided a nice home-cooked dinner was in order – in hindsight perhaps not […]

Orange seem to have a fault this morning which is causing me great joy as it deregisters my phone from the network, thus making my phone not work without any visible indication of this on the phone itself. Gee thanks Orange. Waiting for callback from Customer Services now to tell me what they think is […]
