A day in which I managed to accidentally bug-bomb my living room. Throwing a duvet cover over an airer caught a couple of things on the table behind. This resulted in a violent hissing noise. Throwing the airer to one side, I could see that…
When Katie first arrived last year, I bought her a crate to sleep in. Being an ex-show dog, she was used to a crate, and I decided to keep up the practice. The crate I bought turned out to be a minor disaster. It is…
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.
This mask is now available on the NHS. If you use a CPAP and have problems with finding a comfortable mask, ask if you can try a Respironics Dream Wear.

So it has become a walk-through, plus a place to keep my guitars and other stuff. It is really quite underused.
I have scrapped Social Logins, and have gone back to people just giving their name and email address before commenting. No registration required.
And so my websites have moved again, although it is five years since I last went through this.
I am amused by what I typed then…
This post marks the moving of my blog to a new server; in that when it appears on my blog, the DNS will have propogated, for me at least.
