I like to get my spelling right. And at school I was always reasonably good at it. However, as I create documents almost exclusively on computers or mobile phones these days I've come to rely on spell checkers. I have...

I thought Wordpress was supposed to be easy to use? I was even toying with the idea of moving this blog across to Wordpress and I was definitely thinking about creating a weblog for my employers using it. I'm setting...

Job Interviews

I've been that busy of late that my list of things I want to Blog about but not had time (especially 'net links) has grown beyond control. I'm probably going to have to cull those that I don't want to...

Well, OK, you can. I'm not stopping you. I don't even really mean that statement. Wouldn't be much point to this post if I did. Occassionally I regret losing the anonimity with which I started this blog. When I first...
