ElectroMagnetic Field 2014

I hope that one day, far from now, Jonty, Russ and all the other awesome organisers of the amazing event that was EMFcamp 2014 stumble across this post and freshly realise how freaking awesome they are for creating and organising such a brilliant event. That is all.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

As I sit here waiting for update 4 of 13 on my laptop, buoyed up by a new energy drink (review up shortly) I turn to my phone, tech addict that I am. A topic I started months ago, but left as a forgotten draft was this one, on the recent (ish) report that fructose […]

MetaCriticMatch

Had a thought yesterday when talking to an old school friend who popped by, & we were discussing the disparity between the last 4 films we had watched at the cinema.

Prison voting solution

So yet again the Government is making a mountain out of a molehill, saying we will leave the EU Human Right framework over giving voting rights to prisoners. OK, so if we assume that giving people locked up no rights to vote, that they deserve to be un-emancipated while inside, and the UK want to […]

Moved to Android

So, I’ve moved from Blackberry to Android. I loved Blackberry & the ease of workflow was fantastic. Android is completely fractured by comparison, with multiple Apps to do the same thing – Internet & Chrome, Notes & Notepad & Quicknote… Also, the actual making of a phonecall is far more difficult in the absence of […]
