GeoGearHeads Interview Heads Up

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I will be appearing on the GeoGearHeads Google Hangout tonight at 9pm EDT (2am Friday UK time) to talk about Geocaching and specifically using GSAK. I'm likely to be either falling asleep due to the time or wired from too much caffine, but either way it [...]

I’ve not talked about Project Octopus before but it’s something you’re going to hear a lot about in the coming months. It became a thing a few weeks ago and as a result there was a discussion as to when it should launch. Lots of different factors went into making the decision and it ended [...]

On The Dilemma Of Sekrit Projects

Somebody asked me the other day whether I was still “doing the writing” the other day. “You don’t seem to talk about it so much on your blog anymore.” Whilst it’s true that I’m not updating the blog as regularly as I did, the reason isn’t inactivity.

Fantasy Faction’s High Fantasy Evening

You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been blogging a lot less lately. This isn’t intentional. I’ve just had the most crazy couple of weeks and blog updates got sacrificed to the gods of time. I promise to blog more next week as I have a lot of big posts lined up. But as crazy as my [...]

Weekend Writing

My day job comes with a 24/7 ‘on call’ element. We rarely get call outs, but it’s about being available if one of the IT systems does go wrong. I don’t mind. It’s extra money and I tend to use those weekends that I am ‘primary on call’ as an excuse to get a lot [...]

Quick Writing Update

I realise that I’ve been quiet on blogging about my writing recently. That’s not because nothing is happening (quite the opposite in fact), it’s just that there’s very little I can report. My second article for GPSTracklog should be online very soon. I got to do a “photoshoot” for this one which was a bit [...]
