These are my normal blog posts.
This personal blog doesn’t need SEO. Simple as that. Now go bother somebody else.
There is a park in my little town, within about half a mile of my front door, that I had never visited. Just off Church Street, set back behind the houses.
In fact, until 2 years ago, when I saw it mentioned in a councillor’s blog, I didn’t even know it existed.
There aren’t than many pictures from official sources that shows the Oculus Quest 2 with its original strap. One might almost think they are ashamed of it. The Oculus Go came with a fabric strap that was pretty good; it split into two bands that…
At the end of last year, I signed up for a Kickstarter for a hand held instrument called Orba. It is a hand held synth and MIDI controller, but importantly, it was sold as much on its internal capabilities than as a control for external sources.
Have just received my tracking information for my Orba handheld synth. I’ve been on the Kickstarter since December. Original shipping was going to be April, but that went out of the window, of course. Still, I’m really excited to be finally getting my hands on…
I would love to be able to buy an EV version of my Berlingo car, which is a perfect shape for me. With the right specs, I’d buy one tomorrow. Citroen have toyed with me in the past, by announcing that they would be available…

In order of preference, my three tools are:
Everything is dependent on the integration tools having pathways to and from the things you are trying to integrate, and they are not all equal. So although I may prefer Integromat, I might find myself using Zapier or even IFTTT, because they can get at what I am trying to affect.
I am trying to get back in the habit of posting the interesting stuff I have to say (for some definition of “interesting”) to my own blogs, where I can control the layout, images and have a easily searchable “diary”. Which is essentially what it…
This time last year, I was suffering badly from cellulitis, which required me to keep my leg elevated. So I temporarily moved my office from upstairs to a bed-table pulled over my recliner chair, allowing me to work with the recliner stool in the up…
For over 2 years (closer to 5, probably) I have been planning to update my board game group’s online forum and game session planner. But dealing with importing and transforming data from several years of game sessions, that were still being added to as I wrote the code, cause me some problems.
