I’ll be back soon!

So this is my first post in what seems like ages, in fact it has been ages – I’ve started a new job, moved house and organised a barCamp since!!

Want to know more??? Well I certainly want to tell you with with the current state of my blog (not all entirely my fault – never let Dreamhost loose on your web account) I reckon I’m better off sorting it out first!

More BarCamp info is coming up soon – make sure to check out the BarCampLondon4 page on upcoming and the barcamp wiki.

And much more Ross related fun coming up in the new year!!!!!

Keep safe – look out for me in the pub :>

Bar Shu – eaten and reviewed

Regular readers may have noticed that I always give a bit of extra praise to restaurants that provide that little something extra. This could be fantastic service, the best cooking imaginable or, in probably my favourite cases, food that you just doesn’t see anywhere else.

So when I heard about Ethiopian restaurants I really had to go give it a try! Read more


In the upcoming months I will be starting a new, moving to a new job in a new company (more details to come soon) and hopefully leaving behind a large number of demons that are with me whenever I enter my current office.

Yeah, for once in my professional life I think I can say that I am about to become proud!

But proud of what??? Read more
