Regional Student Support meeting with the 'men from the ministry' (so to speak) in Exeter. Mostly about the new computer system which will mean things are much simpler - especially around our links with the Student Loan Company. Interesting stuff, and there is a real sense that the SLC and the DfES want to make this usable, dependable and flexible (after all, we may have a big change in the way fees are paid if the government gets its way). Lots of people at the meeting were very negative about the changes, which sort of disappointed me. Still, I feel vaguely optimistic about it.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
