Hey, I know I said I was going to flood this thing with stuff about my year in Canada, and I haven't. That's still coming, I've just got much less time on my hands now that I'm working full-time in Glasgow, while being essentially homeless, living in a hostel with very limited internet access while … Continue reading Quick update
Good gnus, whoever is reading this. I just got my Canadian Visa. Well actually, not my Canadian Visa, but my International Experience Canada Working Holiday admission. I need to pay the fee, and then the actual Visa part should come through as long as there is no legal reason why I might be refused entry … Continue reading CANADA!
Good question. Well, two contradictory ways to describe what's happening. There is a lot happening, but a great deal of it relies on waiting, so I sometimes feel like very little is happening.

You have to be a member of Flattr of course, but the way it works … Continue reading Flattr Than a Flat Hat (steamrolledfedorasforeverokay?)
My new PC is up and running.
So, the site went missing there for a bit. Turns out when my laptop went kaput, I did not notice the email invoice I got for my hosting bill (since my old BT emails are set up for thunderbird on that machine and not the macbook). So the bill went unnoticed for a while. Fortunately, … Continue reading And we are back…
Gnus update straight from the zebu's Mouth
So, finally, the rampdown happened, and I am out of work once again, which gives me a small opportunity to get stuff done. Not to be too over-ambitious, but here's the things I intend to work to completion while looking for work once again: The website redesign. A very special episode of PMT...
