Railcard Savings

Posted on 27 August 2004 in Transport (No comments yet - be the first!)

My very last Young Persons Railcard expired on 13 August 2004 - I’m now too old for one and train fares will now be sadly, more expensive.

The F-Word v3.0

Posted on 17 August 2004 in Internet, Web Development (No comments yet - be the first!)

At long last, version 3.0 of The F-Word has gone live. Given I first started work on redesigning Catherine’s site back in December 2002, you might understand that its launch is somewhat of a relief to me.

Mozilla Firefox 0.9 and CSS problems

Posted on 16 August 2004 in Internet, Planet Bods, Web Development (No comments yet - be the first!)

If you’re using Mozilla Firefox 0.9.x - and if you are, you’ll probably know it - you might be looking at a very plain webpage without any proper colours or styles on it.

The PR of strikes

Posted on 16 August 2004 in Transport, Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

It’s quotes like these that make the rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth brigade such easy targets.

Buying a House 2 - Estate Agents

Posted on 3 August 2004 in House (3 comments)

It’s a rare person who has ever gone near an estate agent who has something good to say about them. Which didn’t exactly make me feel good when, just after christmas, we decided to get on the house hunting trail.

Awards, locals and headaches

Posted on 1 August 2004 in London, Pubs (No comments yet - be the first!)

The Red Lion wins another award, I lament about the lack of London Pride round here and Young’s beer gives me headaches. Still that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
