Toil & Trouble

I spent this afternoon setting up that blog for my friend. I also used the time to try troubleshoot some issues that I had noticed in the backend of my site, so I backed everything up, wiped the files and loaded a pristine copy. It seems to have fixed all…

Strange places

You would probably be horrified to know that I’m writing this while sitting on the bog… So, I just won’t tell you. Instead, imagine me sitting on a beach somewhere, in the shade of a classic palm tree, the ocean waves crashing gently on the shore… Sea gulls…
