See you in two weeks!

5th August 2004

Woo-hoo! Shut the Powerbook, roll out the “Out of office” auto-reply, dig out the bucket and spade. I’m having a well-earned rest for the next two weeks, so you can expect nothing new from me until the 23rd August. Yep, even the blog is getting rested. Well, maybe I’ll post the odd thing here and there…

So, I’m off camping in the Peak District National Park, hopefully trotting off to Brighton to meet up with Andy, Richard, Dunstan, Jon and some other code-smiths, dodging down to London to see some bands and have a bit of fun with a certain new friend, and getting back to some daily cycling on the old Specialized. It’s likely that I will also be consuming plenty of beer and suffering more intolerable hang-overs.

If you see me wandering around this little island, say “Hello” and I’ll buy you a beer. Right, where’s ma shorts?
