Office repaint

We are going to be painting the office so are doing a bit of a move around in preparation.

I assume the painters are just going to paint straight over what is already there. Its funny as that is what has happened since these buildings existed. You can see from the places where the paint has come off the different colours it has been starting from green (most likely when it was a factory during the war) and then going into a variety of different hues.

I am sick of waiting. I need, nay I demand telepathy. I don't understand why it takes so long. I'm no scientist but I am pretty sure the brain gives off some type of energy. Like a brain wave. At some point we should be able to measure the usage of the brain to a point that we can decipher our language. From then we could just have a small implant that then sends that message to implants in other peoples brains. I think my first telepathic message would be "can someone please make me a cup of tea". Even better would be if you then hack the implant so you could control people "you knave! make me tea now!".?

Ah the future seems to take forever to arrive! grrr!

Early Star Trek Shocker.


I never hear any mention of this and it isn't even recorded on James T Kirks wikipedia page! In one of the very early episodes of Star Trek, his middle name was not Tiberius! I don't know what it was but his middle name began with R!

I would hazard a guess at Rudolf perhaps?


I had looked a little bit at F# about a year ago but that was mainly just being confused at what a colleague had done in it. I like this presentation by Luca Bolognese. It gives a really good example of doing something useful in F#. I think one of the big barriers I had with it was not really knowing what you were supposed to do with, just knowing it was new (and therefore shiny).

The presentation / video is definitely worth a look and the guy himself is also quite funny which makes it easier to watch / listen to.

Nokia development tools

I was looking on the Nokia development website at this?
I tried to click on what I thought were videos under the heading?

Efficient cross-platform development

To my dismay they were just empty words... the video that is actually on there is a complete joke! I really don't know who they are trying to appeal to, if they want developers on board they really should have spent some time showing how easy their development platform is (and it's not by the way), with actual footage. This video just boasts about features that anyone programming these days would expect anyway!

We have been trying mess around developing with Nokia phones with my friend Jon. I don't really like C++ but he is die hard symbian fan and I like messing around with new things.?

Persona on Flickr

I noticed some more pictures have been added to this photostream...

Chewzenneggar!!!! #IfArnieWasInStarWars


I don't think I can let this idea go. I think this may be the start of many more foolish pictures to come over the next few days providing I have some time of course.?

Me and the Gallagher brothers


Taken a couple of years ago. Great day.?

Day out on the bikes

We cycled out to Elvaston castle today. Good ride! Saw this strange Moorish temple on the grounds which they are planning on restoring. Thought it was a very strange thing to see... reminded me of something out of an Elder Scrolls game.

I was at a bit of a house party last night. There was a nice view from the apartment.

Reigniting posterous again perhaps


I'm taking another look at Posterous again. I'm not really sure why as I haven't written a proper blog for a while but this seems an easy way to share between all my other tings...
