Productive day. Early start - shopping. Had no idea how much chisels cost! Borrowed one instead, but did purchase a speculative birthday present. Lots of work throughout the day on the chess board (and I have scars to prove it). Finally finished it at about 7pm but couldn't find anyone around to display it to! Released gtkdial 0.3.5 and announced it everywhere.

Hmm...its time to divide this page again. Maybe later. Spent much of the day doing woodwork for the first time in fifteen years! My first chessboard is almost complete, and pending a visit to the tool shop tomorrow, looks like it will be finished very soon. Useful feedback arriving on gwvedit (ie. it only works for me!). Lots of silly April Fool stuff around the web keeps me entertained.
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.
