“You may fire when ready.”

Hey folks, Yes, it’s another of those in-betweenie posts. One not quite about a night out – which no doubt reads What-Lynn-Did-Next diary kinda thing – but the random, wanderings of my addled brain. Curious to see what I prattle on about, I thought I’d pop this blog’s URL into one of those meme cloud gadgets. Well, it passes the time doesn’t it? Oh, there’s a shoe design. Step on! 🙂 I suppose for maximum cliche, I should have selected some vibrant pink colours….. but really, shades of suede would have been more my choice. Oh, black shoes. How can I count the ways….? 🙂 So there you have it. A list of the key words yours truly regularly punts […]

Sometimes, good things happen

Hi, It’s an early post for me as I’ve just finished one of those distance training courses. Not the old school learn by post kinda thing, but a learn-by-Skype style classroom. You get a little video of the class, remote access to the system you have to work on and you get to see the presentation slides. Luckily, there’s no return video feed – and we’ll come back to that in a mo 🙂 – but you can ask questions using the chat or microphone. It saves me having to travel to London and it saves the company money on a hotel. It all seems a little futuristic and everyday at the same time. How things change eh? Some of […]

Who watches the Watchmen?

Salutations dear reader, T-Stuff The dry spell has been broken. Whatever biological or mental (emphasis on the mental 😉 ) block was floating in my noggin, seems to have relented and off I went to Chams the other night. Strange, after those few weeks of being decidedly, well, meh, about the whole trans thing, my interest was piqued and I found myself wanting a little fabulous time out. And so, with the generous smile of the Fates, events conspired with me and all was well…. Well….. mostly. I almost put the kibosh on the whole gig, by giving myself a razor cut Sweeny Todd would have been proud of. There I was, enjoying a rather warm shower – the warmer, the […]

“In violent times, you shouldn’t have to sell your soul
In black and white, they really, really ought to know “

Hi, A bit of a different week this time around. Rather than facing the commute along the ring road, I’ve been at home working. Well, on a training course. It was all very modern and made me think that in some small way, the future had arrived. 🙂 If you build it, they will log in…. Rather than travelling down to Dat Lundun,  I had the chance to try a remote training session. Basically, crank up the Analytical Engine and PigeonNet… sorry, I’ve been reading SteamPunk again… start up the PC, say a prayer to the Digital Pixies and hope the Broadband Goblins aren’t chewing on the lines.  Low and behold, my screen was filled with a video feed of the classroom, […]

“Information, truth and lies,
It’s all yours and it’s all mine.”

Hiya, As a break from the norm, I thought I’d write about some geek stuff. Don’t worry, there is a trans element to this 🙂 Tracey (Chameleons) was kind enough to give me a copy of the photos from last week’s photo session and that may be wonder about keeping said information safe. Clearly, there are on-line backups such as Microsoft SkyDrive, iDrive and Google Drive to name but a few. All are fairly easy to use, although Google Drive seems to be holding my interest at the mo. I know a number of folk swear by DropBox, but I’ve yet to have the pleasure. One for another time perhaps. For those of you know in the know, these remote […]

“It’s The End Of The World As We Know It
(And I Feel Fine)”

Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land,  Argh, brain freeze. 🙂 Where to start? Well, it’s been a pretty good week, all things considered. The weather’s been good, the nippers have kept out of trouble, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones hasn’t been over-worked and apart from a slight issue with the hound, all is good. Oh, and it’ll be about a week or so, since I reduced the anti-miserabalist tablets and dare I say (Ed: Dare! Dare!) that so far so good. All in all, it’s been rather quiet and relaxing. So there’s not really a lot to report! 😉 Given that I’d not been shopping for sometime, I decided to invest in some rather nice leopard print peep-toe heels. A […]
