Calendar bit added

You may have noticed a new addition on the left-side of the site today. This is a calendar, where you can add events and important dates. I've stuck a couple in to get it started - like the birthday of this site on November 1st 2003. Hurra! We …

Virus mania..

Running a site of this size unfortunately does have the odd bad point - spam and viruses being the major ones. Swen, probably the most (un)popular virus at the moment, has been filling up my inbox for months now. In fact, if I didn't have broadband I'...

Trying to look good..

Every morning I come to work in a bit of a haze and try to look important by reading some IT newspaper or other. I sit around, reading these papers, verging on the "lazy", but also looking as if I'm doing my job at the same time. People …

What do I have?

I've noticed over the months, as the Smartphone Handsets have appeared on different networks and different types have launched, that I can no longer refer to them as "the Orange SPV" or "the E100" without confusing people. To that end, I've put a pag...
