If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know that occasionally I have to apologise for blog downtime. Sometimes (though admittedly, it’s very rare), the computer that hosts this blog… falls over. This time it was only down for about 30 minutes, but still: I feel obligated to make it up to you. So here’s a photo from 2005, just before I turned 21. My sister will probably kill me. But really, she has nothing to complain about… she’s…

… it’s because I’m busy playing video games. If, for some Godforsaken reason, you still don’t play video games, let me tell you something: Winter is gaming season.

Feel free to disregard… or read it, it might be enlightening, you never know! If it turns out you ARE interested, or you’re a World of Warcraft player, I’ve written two articles recently that you might like: Who plays in a…

Or something equally heinous. There’s something about trying to remotely manage a computer, without your hands on it, or a screen, or a keyboard that really… irks me. I know some people love the challenge of remote-administering servers, and it’s lovely while everything works, but when a spring goes sprrrunggg into the corner of the room, and it suddenly stops working… Anyway, sadness at technology aside, you can now go and look at the pretty photos from yesterday’s Surrey trek…
