Counting down

August is gonna be a busy month, really busy. Plus there’s a number of things that I’ll be counting down to: On or before the 15th the old boy’s moving pad. 21st is the old boy’s birthday and marks two years of me having a licence to drive a motor (no kills for 2 years, ...

Blog on

Well, it seems like this iPhone app might actually get me back in the habit of using this old blog rather than it just sitting here doing nothing. I’ve decided that as soon as I get paid at the end of the month that I’m booking tickets for the Henry Rollins show (assuming that they’re ...

No more Sky+ charge for me from June 🙂 So in summary, leave Telewest (a.k.a. Virgin Media) and get more channels, Sky+ functions and faster ‘uncapped’ broadband for less money.
