Posts from 2012 (page 1/4)

As is my habit, edited “highlights” (for want of a better term) of what I wrote on Twitter over the past 12 months. Right, had better make my first Tweet of 2012 a good one. hang on… (Sun 01 Jan 2012) Another engagement at work! And I mean of the marriage variety, not toiletry or […]

Well, last day of 2012. I’ve already reviewed how I did against my ambitions for this year (not too badly), and I’ll look forward to next year when we get there. Year of Tweets to come too (less to choose from this year,  I feel). This year has been notable for being fairly boring. I […]

Week two of the colour challenge is done – as you recall it was “white” this time around. Blue kicks off tomorrow, so, until then, here are the whities:

After reading about in Practical Photography, and feeling like my 365s were becoming a little stale, I decided to a “colour week” challenge. I’ve just finished the first one (red), next is white, then blue, and then I’ll think again. Anyway, these things are best presented en masse, so here is “red”:

I was worried I’d borked my Asus slider earlier this week. I’ve got the excellent SwitchMe app, which allows me to have different profiles for the different people who use the tablet. For it to work properly, you also need to have rooted the device. This is working very well. However, this week Asus released […]
