Ross’ African adventure!

Well guys if the “African edition” was a rather poor hint at my future plans I now have an itinerary so I can actually tell you lot exactly what I’ll be doing on my upcoming holiday (I have realised that I actually head off next week!!). Being a fan of good food, wine, drinking, nature and animals (NOT in a physical sense) I reckon that South Africa is going to be a pretty damn awesome holiday destination and will hopefully make up for me missing the Oktoberfest (which I had previously been to for three years straight!). I am going cross country from Port Elizabeth (or as they call it PE) to Cape Town (where my good good friend and former work colleague at LSBU Linda now lives) so should be able to see a good load of stuff.

While I have no idea what I will be doing in most of these places but its good that I do at least know where I will be, in order to wet your appetite for some classic photos and pictures when I return please check out my itinerary (and read about my holiday sweepstakes!) Read more

worst font EVER

OK guys, I’m pissed off, really pissed off in fact – had one of those days at work yesterday where absolutely nothing goes right; everyone who thinks they know anything about the web starts telling me how they think it could be made better, I prepare for a 6 hour meeting about a database system that we shouldn’t even bought in a million years and then some fucking muppet sends me exhibit A which really just delivers the knock out punch. This is a document that is handed out to all new POSTGRADUATE students starting on the forensic science course and it is written in comic sans!!! Read more

what football is all about!

Sunday afternoon (ARSENAL v ManU) was all a football match should be; there was passion, commitment and attacking play!! All respect to both Chelsea and Liverpool but they just bore the arse off of me to watch and in my mind that is the reason that regardless of success and wealth this was the clash of the premierships big boys!

No, unfortunately this is not in relation to the IA job (though I did of course try) but about the lovely website they made us (LSBU) and launched (after what must have been about a years fighting for content) last week! Read more

d.Construct – the food

As I had the weekend in Brighton I wanted to make the most of it by indulging on yet another of my passions – good food!!! I had heard that Brighton had a number of good places, some had been suggested to me, others just looked nice and others I had seen on TV. I managed to get into one each of these and I am still feeling pretty full from all this – and I don’t think my waist-line is very happy! Read more
