I'm back after a frustrating weekend which saw my hard drive pack up entirely. Firstly, I'm amazed how much of the configuration process of this box I've remembered, and a lot of the problems I've had have been with tidying up after well-meaning "make it easy" installation tools etc! Anyway - all should be back to normal now...

Woke up feeling worse than yesterday! Weird liquid head thing happening... Good start though - got 82 for the essay on Palliative Care. Collected a package from the Post Office - it was the Ed's Redeeming Qualities tape which I've wanted to hear again since John Peel played it in 1990! Curse my amazing memory.

Being ill is getting boring. At least the whole bank thing is sorted, with lots of help from The Cooperative Bank who've been excellent throughout. Not a productive day - frustrated with Gtk/Perl now. Getting a bit lonely and reclusive!

Still feel like crap. Apache panic this morning when I realised that during my clean up after upgrading to Perl 5.6.0 I'd broken mod_perl. Spent much of the afternoon trying to turn Qdial into GtkDial, and struggling with Gtk-Perl's woeful lack of documentation. Found a good tutorial, but still struggling a bit.
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.
