You know you work too hard when…

27th January 2005

You know you work too hard when you end up documenting the fact that you’re working too hard. We’ve a lot of new sites to release over the next few weeks, but getting them finished is taking a lot of graft. Here are ten true ‘time for a rest’ symptoms I’ve noticed over the last two weeks.

A rant about the state of blogging

13th January 2005

A few loud voices in the web community are bemoaning the lack of fresh ideas, new techniques, and a drought of constant exploration and innovation from A-list, up-and-coming or guru-like bloggers and writers.

MacExpo, Ostrich and facial surgery

22nd November 2004

Busy as the proverbial bee. Aside form verbal fisticuffs with the Inland Revenue, appalling drunken behaviour in dressing rooms, and too much time on trains, I have actually been hard at it of late. If you are interested in either Mac Expo, split or splitting pop bands, eating South African wildlife or WW1 regenerative face surgery, then do read on. Otherwise, you’ll find the following quite self-indulgent…

The Monthly Style Magazine - R.I.P

14th June 2004

The state of magazine publishing in the UK is in serious limbo. People simply do not need to pay four quid a month to find out what’s going on - not now we have the web at our fingertips.

Don’t Cry - They’re Only Onions…

14th June 2004

Euro 2004: A Nation Expects…

9th June 2004

Apologies to all readers across the pond. I’m going to write about football (soccer - the one without padding). Euro 2004 begins on the 12th June, and I’m as excited as a squirrel during nut-fall. Why am I so excited this time around? Well, England could actually win…

Disillusioned by being asked to do nothing more than play MP3s all day, the little fella is showing signs of trauma. The story of Little iMac and his marginalization is a sad one.
