Apologies for the outage – apparantly the server woz hacked. W00t! Anyway, everything should be back to normal now.

One of the aspects of being a Christian that I find tricky is remembering it. I don’t mean in the big sense, but in the everyday hustle and bustle of working life. I sometimes find that I’ve gone the whole day without any particular reference to God. Other days I’m very “tuned in”, and keep […]

I’m definitely getting braver in my old age. Today I took calculated risks with two fairly precious items – my watch, and my Canon EOS 300D. The second is the point of this post, but the first is worth a quick mention. My watch ‘glass’ (don’t know what it actually is) was fairly scratched – […]

Twitter has now turned off Basic Authentication, so apps have to use OAuth. In case you missed it, I have a page which says how to a PHP twibot using OAuth, and I’m grateful to Shadowfax for highlighting some of changes he had to make to get it work in CentOS. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Church Mouse, I’ve come across 7 link challenge – and it seemed fun. My first post: Untitled Rather a poor show – Also decided to keep a mini-diary. At that stage it was almost like Twitter, with very short “newsy” type items. Due to a strange quirk, it was post #99 in […]

Nothing serious – I was having a session at the Harrogate Climbing Centre (which, incidentally, I can’t rate highly enough) on Thursday, when I fell off the bouldering wall awkwardly and landed on my ankle. Hobbled home (well, cycled actually) – pretty painful but that’s how it […]

Very excited – new phone in the post. SHould be here Weds. I have to say that ever since I strayed from the One True Way (Sony Ericsson) I’ve been a bit disappointed with my phones. I got a Samsung P300 (weird calculator phone) several years ago, which was very cool in terms of size, […]

Oh dear. The Church does get itself in a stew, doesn’t it? I’ll be honest – I struggled with the ordination of women. My understanding of the Bible was that women should not be in a position of leadership over men. However having met women who seem genuinely called and gifted for the Ministry, and […]

When I was on a stag weekend last year, conversation turned to music (as so often it does), and for some reason we started talking about bass breaks. A bass break is where all the other instruments stop for a bit while the bass does it’s funky stuff. For some reason this discussion really captured […]
