Quick Update

So, I thought I’d ease into what will (hopefully) be another flurry of posting activity with a quick update on what’s been going on here recently.  If you’ve read through earlier posts on this blog then you may well know that I started working at bit10 in September 2007.  I’ve had a fantastic time working […]

Back on the ‘Net

After almost a month I’m finally back on the internet.  I’ve got a lot of catching up to do, I might finally get back to posting at some point soon. Right now I’ve got a fair bit on my plate as I’m currently following up a couple of issues with my new place with the […]

House Move

In case anyone’s been wondering why I’ve been a bit quiet recently, it’s just because I’ve moved house and haven’t managed to get internet sorted at my new place yet.  Once I get myself back online, I should be able to resume normal posting.  When that’s going to be depends on the irritatingly recalcitrant BT.

Chocolate Brownies

After doing a bit of baking this weekend I came up with an – if I do say so myself – especially good batch of chocolate brownies.  I thought that I’d share the recipe on here because I know that not everyone who reads this blog is interested in the techie stuff… and they really […]

Job(s)

Well, being a recent graduate, I’ve been job hunting for the past couple of months. I originally applied to Atos Origin, which is a large technology consulting company, and got rejected after a few recruitment rounds, which I was a bit disappointed about. I must admit that I let things lapse for a little bit, […]

Socks: updated

As a quick aside, I notice that the aptly named ‘odd sock pile’ appears to have a fixed size, although the actual members of the pile do vary from wash to wash. Clearly, this calls for a proper scientific investigation, perhaps those lazy physicists will be able to get off their bottoms and shed light […]

Socks

Following on from the post about our new washing machine, I’ve been steadily making my way through approximately one month’s worth of dirty laundry. Not a particularly painful process, but somewhat time consuming. As I’m coming to an end with it, and (almost) everything is dry, I’ve been sorting everything out into piles so we’ll […]

Washing machines can be such a pain!

Honestly, I really didn’t know until now, but I tried to buy one on the first of August (we’d had a neat little washing arrangement with Rob’s parents until then, since they were visiting every weekend). The first order I tried to make from Comet failed because my billing address wasn’t the same as my […]

Ikea

Rob and I moved in together several months ago, after our university accommodation tenancies expired. We’ve now got a pretty nice house in north Coventry. Making the transition from renting to owning a house, though, means that we needed furniture. Lots and lots of furniture. Naturally, a trip to Ikea was in order. We had […]
