South Africa – at last!!!

Finally I get time to write something!! I hope that none of you thought that I had got up to any trouble and not managed to make it back – if the truth be told I have just had a bad case of food poisoning (on my first day back in England, dodgy curry, yuck yuck) and have had a really shitty time at work and have not had the inclination to write anything; until now of course!

South African update!

Heya people – clearly I have not been keeping the site as up to date as I would have hoped – I have been far too busy!!!!!! But this is good as you know that when I get back I will have a shit load to talk about, and when I say shit load I really mean it.

I am now in Cape Town, in an internet cafe from which I can see Table Mountain, I will soon be going up there as it is a lovely day, but as the proper Johnny Foreigner that I am I am really over dressed! To tantalise you guys on the upcoming articles I have so far –

  • seen elephants
  • stayed in the same suite as Brad Pitt once did
  • seen dolphins jump through the waves
  • been on a mountain/jungle trek
  • almost died (but as you can tell thankfully didn’t)

There is bound to be plenty more I could talk about but I rather need the loo so will cut this short – hope you are all having a great time wherever you are – and remember; don’t forget to bring a towel!!

new country, same old div

I think most people in a new country and after a day of flying wouldn’t spend their first night getting drunk. I am however not your normal person! Read more

d.Construct – the socialising

After stretching my legs (believe me I needed to after being scrunched into those wee seats (I’ll stop mentioning them after I get blood flowing through my feet again) I made my way down to the after-party which was being held on the beach front via my lovely hotel.

The place to be was The Terraces and I certainly was there, until they kicked me out! Read more

I’m off to the seaside – and a conference!

As I have been booked up to attend d.Construct for well over a month now I think its about time that I actually said something about it. In a nutshell I am rather excited. I have always been a fan of coding up things (mainly because I can’t design for toffee) and all the recent developments in the web gets me really excited and ehtused as to what may well be possible in a number of years (if not months if Yahoo! have anything to say about it) over the web and a with a web browser and this is essentually what d.Construct is going to be about – a bunch of technically minded people talking code, talking web and in my case probably talking a load of bollocks!
