Here's an interesting paradox - after power failures yesterday, my telephone somehow forgot a lot of settings and switched back to pulse dialing. After trawling through the handbook in detail and numerous searches online for a setting, I was reduced to phoning the BT helpline. I was then greeted with the message "Press 1 for technical questions...". How can I make a menu selection with a phone set to pulse rather than tone dialing? Argh! Cue expensive call via mobile phone. Have to say though, the guy on the helpline was quick and helpful in dispensing the undocumented setting. Sick today. Went to work early hoping I'd shake of the fuzzy head, but no luck. Did essential stuff and then went home. Slept a lot, ate too much, worked a little on pkgview. Some fascinating books arrived - I bought a set of late 19th century volumes to obtain a copy of Gissing's "Human Odds and Ends" - amongst the others was a novel which turned out to be by Canadian writed James De Mille. The search for more details continues.



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.
