I use the Liverpool to Norwich rail service several times a year to get to a variety of destinations. Central Trains were never perfect but East Midlands Trains seem to take pride in getting it wrong. Where Central Trains would provide vouchers as compensation when late with an explanation of the cause I’ve yet to […]

Up the Parthenon

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I’ve been saving this for a night when I couldn’t face NANOBLOWHATONEARTHAMISTILLDOINGTHISFORMO and with 5 days to go… Possibly the worlds oldest joke book found at the BBC.

New Google Analytics Features

Some of the new Google Analytics features look interesting. I’m going to reserve judgment on the animated graph as I’m not convinced its really comprehensible for many sites. Having looked at it on Tuesday night I’d rather not have discovered even more new features had appeared overnight while in a meeting showing it to a […]

I didn’t mean to do NaBloPoMo this year but since I seem to be by accident I ought to come up with a post for today… Except I can’t think of one so this NoNaBloPoMo post will have to do otherwise I’ll fail today.

Some Site Rates this Blog

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Apparently this blog rates 7 out of 10 on some rating site I’ve never heard of as an entertainment blog. I could have had a higher rating if I posted more often about entertainment. I’m so pleased. Really I am. My life is now complete.

Today I've mostly been looking at Moodle…

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

I don’t usually blog about work but today I’ve mostly been looking at Moodle. On the surface a pretty nifty e-learning solution with an extensive set of tools for building an online community. Another one to keep in the armoury of useful, open source solutions.

Tonight I have mostly been playing with…

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Although thats not really very impressive as all I did was change a htaccess file so the php […]
