You’re bored, you’re fed up. So what to do? Well take a trawl round TheyWorkForYou.com and see what you can find out about your MP.

Crucial

Posted on 24 January 2005 in Computers (No comments yet - be the first!)

My PC’s been getting a little slow in it’s old age so I thought I’d treble its RAM to 384Mb. I’ve never used Crucial before, but they are often raved about, so thought I’d give them ago. And it was a very pleasing experience.

Posted on 22 January 2005 in Planet Bods, Web Development (No comments yet - be the first!)

Well here it is, Bods Central v3.0. It’s only really a re-skin of the content but the old design had been in use since November 2002, and I’ve been itching for a change for a while.

On the day that we found out about the first UK blogger to be sacked by his employer (well that we know about anyway) it’s fittingly appropiate that the hot topic on part of the BBC’s internal message boards was guidelines for BBC staff who blog about work stuff.

Just Another Drone

In a few weeks time I will sadly no longer be making the trog to work up to the delightful Bush House. For us in New Media, this delightful location in the heart of London’s west end will just be a distant memory, for we’re moving to the less glamorous White City.

File Under Pointless Reminiscing

Had to use a floppy disk this evening.

Sea Of Cables

In the back bedroom where I am sat, there are 12 items which require a plug socket. Eight of them are PCs or PC equipment.
