So, the machine that used to be <<lionel>> has now moved elsewhere. Not much time to add to the daylog lately - mainly due to an increasingly ludicrous situation at work - it's actually safe to mention it here because Bristol City Council have barred access to my site on the basis that people could "job search" from it! Paranoid? Me? Never! Weirdly, the more people I know that read this, the less I think it should be here.

Pretty much the last bits of Lionel I died this morning, as the original 1.2gb hard drive finally decided that enough was enough. Expensive morning, but all seems well, with Lionel II having 20mb more storage to chew on. Another failed attempt to install XFree86 4 leaves me foiled and unhappy. Still, got some nice music via Gnapster and got deeply drunk.

Lots of updating done on the workdump tonight. Not much else to report despite my long absence from the daylog. A couple of revisions of Gtkdial have sneaked out, and I think with some tidying up of the horrendous spaghetti which is my code, it'll soon be ready to share with the world. Its a useful direction as the tension level at work shoots reaches new heights.

Well, technically this is being written on <<lionel>>, as the frenzied week of upgrading has resulted in very little of the original machine remaining. Many thanks to Steve for his invaluable guidance in rebuilding Lionel. Managed to duplicate both audio and data CDs successfully now, more by luck than judgement maybe...



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.
