...and its already time to sort the news page out again. I'm tempted to stop recording the daylog alltogether. After all, the really interesting bits are too personal, incriminating or commercially sensitive to describe in detail, and in some ways its just another means of avoiding being honest with myself. Perhaps you can tell its been a weird week? I feel like some sort of declassified military vehicle. Still around, but not rostered for useful duty anymore. Handy to have about though, because you know they don't make 'em like they used to, and these things which have weathered a bit of action have proved how tough they can be in a tight place. Hmm...extended metaphor. I'm not as sad as I sound, a bit anxious and a bit hurt perhaps, and probably both due to constructions of my own addled mind rather than any real threat. It seems to come and go in waves, and distraction helps - there is crap all on TV tonight, so maybe that's it? Got Kernighan and Pike's The Practice of Programming today, which has proved to be a gem. One of those books you should have read a long time ago. Still too lazy and demotivated to solve the packaging problems with gwvedit. The world can probably live without it for a little while....
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.
