It’s been a while… I’ve been on a course the last week, an M(icrosoft) C(ertified) S(systems) E(ngineer) one at a company called Wave. The course is called a ‘bootcamp’ and lasts for two weeks. During the two weeks we get to go over a whole lot of coursework and do five exams. The MCSE invloves […]

Seven Worlds Collide

It’s the weekend, yeah. Just watched the ‘Neil Finn and Friends’ concert DVD, really wish I’d gone now, oh well. Got up early to pick up a package from the post office, it was two prints I’d bought from Larry Elmore, specifically ‘The Memory Stone‘ and ‘Tanis and Laurana‘. We’ll be off later this morning […]

Study time

I’ve spent the last two days sitting in a chair in our lounge staring at books and a laptop, all in aid of study for my MCSE bootcamp in a couple of weeks. I can say that I am truly beginning to hate, well, dislike strongly, text books on networking and active directory. However, it […]

England out

England are out and London returns to normal. People still watch the World Cup but its not really big news anymore. Bigger news is the tennis at Wimbledon which starts today. I’ve missed a few phone calls on the weekend, we’ll hopefully catch up with people this coming weekend. I’m off to a Roger Waters […]

Busy on the tube so early

I can honestly say that the tube has never been so busy at 6:15 in the morning. England play Brazil this morning and London will shortly come to a standstill for 90-130 minutes and then it’ll be a national party or a huge wake, dependant on the score. Should all be fun. We’ve got a […]

Another blog change

Things have changed a little bit. It’s easier for us to update things the way things are now, we hope its still easy to navigate and not too harsh on the eye. You’ll notice that there are more pages on the menu now. They all have something on them, even if its just a short […]

Don’t they know the game is on?

Football’s on, England are winning, and still people call us on the HelpDesk. Thankfully the IT manager rang and said we could turn off the phones at half time – England has officially come to a halt.


Never fear, we are still alive! We tried to find an internet cafe while in Devon (Exeter to be specific) but failed, hence no update while on holiday. Our trip to Cornwall and Devon was very nice, we saw lots of interesting places and met some really nice people. We’re both members of English Heritage […]

Cornwall & Devon

June 2002…way in the past… A two week trip travelling around the south-east of England. Pity the weather was nasty for most of it, but we still had a nice relaxing time and were out and about every day, in spite of the wind and rain. We’ve just had 20 or so films developed from […]


We ended up going to Cambridge, In Cambridgeshire, on Sunday. I guess it’s fairly obvious but the name Cambridge comes from the fact that the town straddles the river Cam. In fact, a lot of names in this country are obvious if you just think about it. For instance, there is a round church in […]

A movie and unexpected contact

We went and saw Panic Room today, another good movie, but not quite all its cracked up to be. It’s not as suspenceful as it should be – some of the bits that are meant to be tense just come across as very funny. Enjoyable though. Got a call out of the blue today from […]
