Falling off the blogosphere (The Piano ate my blog!)

Sounds like the dog ate my homework? Well that’s really what it is! Many people asked me  in person why I stopped blogging? Why I make very little noise on social media? Simply put a few years ago I bought a friends second-hand piano and around the same time I lost a couple of relatives […]

System Support Engineer (Cloud)

As a freelance IT guy with a focus on “Le Cloud” I do like a little trickle of potential contracts filtering into the inbox, this one though, well I can’t resist. If it were not for the hate of filling in forms, I’d probably apply for the fun of it. Not that I can spell […]

Back from my trip – happy new year

Wow, today I am back from 3 weeks in la belle France.  This Christmas my wife and I finally had our new septic system fitted, we have been trying to co-ordinate it for 6 years!  It cost the earth and involves a lot of digging and a lot of space. We were snowed in initially, […]
