The Intrepid Ibex

Yesterday marked the launch of the latest version of the Ubuntu linux operating system (which is ‘free’, and can be used on your PC instead of Microsoft Windows), 8.10 codenamed the Intrepid Ibex. I was fortunate enough to be able to go along to the launch party last night down in the bowels of Waxy […]

It’s Life Jim, But Not As We Know It…

There’s an absolute flood of new images of the next Star Trek movie online now, so I’ve gathered them all together here, so you don’t have to go hunting for them 😉 Notice how closely Karl Urban resembles De Forrest Kelly (I hope he has the same gravelly voice!) and can you spot Mr Scott […]

The Service Are Back

I can’t believe it took so long, but Spooks is finally back for series seven! Episode two is broadcasting tomorrow night at 9pm. I won’t spoil it for you but the whole of episode one runs at a frenetic pace with not one, but two, nail-biting storylines, and there are lots of scenes set in […]

In the end […]

Mood Music

Last night I went to see the last date on Miracle Fortress’s tour, at 93 Feet East, a tiny little venue next to the Pink Bar on Brick Lane in London’s east end. The night started with support from the Swanton Bombs – just a guitarist and drummer who are obviously just at the start […]

Pity the Stick Men


As I’ve mentioned before I use both Picasa and Flickr to host my pictures, but while I prefer the way that Picasa organises my photos into neat little albums, and the fact that it has rather neat software for editing and organising photos on your PC before you upload (now at version 3 btw!) Flickr […]
