As I walked to work this morning I listened to Adam Buxton and Rob Delaney talk about parenting. My mind started to wander off on a tangent and I started to relate parenting to the battle between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic Now I haven’t developed a completely solid metaphor here, I got … More Galactic Civil War: a metaphor for parenting
Due to our car troubles recently I’ve taken to hiring a car for any sort of long distance travelling we’ve got planned. So for our Christmas trip away I booked a Skoda Octavia (or similar car in the same class) with a boot big enough for all our presents. When I went to collect the … More My difficulty loving a BMW
Before I get started, I need to say a couple of things. First of all, I’m not really sure I want to write this post – I had a bit of a rant a while back and was encouraged to post the transcript. I can’t remember it all so I’m just going to start fresh … More Mac vs PC

While testing something at work today, as usual I choose a car I rather like to use as my test subject. Today I picked the Skoda Fabia 2.0 TFSI vRS, about 200 horsepower, front wheel drive, cost a little over £20,000. I like Skoda’s and that vRS isn’t a terrible target to set myself.

I’m running the 10k on the 20th May, I think that’s 2 weeks tomorrow. I’ve managed 3k so far… hmmm, not sure if I’ll make it. But if I don’t, never mind, I’m really just using it to get me off my arse and training for the half marathon in September, which is 21k and … More Beer, dairy and running
A lot of people and websites seem to think Alexa web site stats are in some way useful. They have got slightly less crap over the years, but they still suck. Originally I think Alexa stats were only gathered by installing a toolbar in IE and browsing the web. So the stats on Alexa were … More Alexa stats are rubbish

There’s been a variety of reasons for this, such as me forgetting my password so I couldn’t blog at work, me being very busy at Comcar, Willshaw Media, Skeater Media and at home, and some other stuff to. Aaaaaaaaaaanyway here’s something interesting… I was trying to … More Cheeky Google!
