...and into the midst of intrigues, chaos and confusion. Very short staffed, but managed to remain amazingly productive, and even a bit positive. Worst fears were confirmed about the look of this site on Internet Explorer yesterday. Puzzled over it some more in the quiet moments at work, using NT - its readable however, so no hugely urgent issue. Getting used to living and working with Areopagitica - so far I like it. Writing a small, easy content management system for this site was a long overdue task - I remember it being on my list of things to do when I first installed RedHat back in 1999. Glad I waited and got the benefit of some experience before trying. Had some thoughts about a London Walk I'd like to plan over the past couple of days, and finally started committing it to paper - decided to work directly from c1873 OS maps to start with, and see how possible the final route is with an A-to-Z later. Altogether, feeling a little more positive after a troublesome few weeks. Accepting some truths as self-evident, it seems, is often the only way forward.
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.
