Well, both machines now have ethernet cards in situ, and seem to be configured OK, but things are still not moving much...I suspect cable troubles. Desperately need to sleep - head buzzing with the basics of TCP/IP. Don't know where I'd be without the NET-Howto.

Yesterday saw the arrival of the soon-to-be webserver. In honour of discovering that The Delgados are soon to play in Bristol, it will be (at least temporarily) dubbed <<LIONEL>>. Awaiting delivery of a CDRW drive after lots of research at's hardware page, after all - it's almost payday.

A relatively busy week means little done to the website. Working hard on a reimplementation of Gtkdial in C. Evolution 0.4.1 is out, and initially troublesome but now running like a dream. Exciting work-related web server project brewing. Otherwise had a damn good weekend and finally stopped "hermitting"! Looks like the Yellow Dog installation may have been in vain. I suppose Linux isn't for everyone.

Just starting to read "A Disaffection" by James Kelman on the strength of an overheard conversation on a mailing list. Felt extremely odd today, so splashed out on Sigur Ros and Black Heart Procession music. A surprise phone call indicates that someone uses this Daylog to determine if I'm still alive or not. You'd be hard-pressed to guess either way I'd think...



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.
