The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Well, I've finally got round to doing something I've been planning to do for quite some time. I've added two more internet domains to my growing collection :-

During my various visits back home (Laindon) since moving to Evesham, we've always gone to Southend to walk the pier. I don't know what it is about it, but I find it so fascinating. I have countless photos, and more recently I took some 360 degree panoramic photos which I have stitched together, made interactive and are now available on a new website.

The other site I have created is dedicated to one of the best applications I have ever bought on any computer - The 3D Construction Kit by Incentive Software. I had this program on my Commodore 64 and Commodore Amiga way back in the early 1990's and made quite a few games with it. I noticed that there wasn't really site dedicated to it, so here it is - with thanks to a few others who I have started chatting to on some old retro computer forums (particularly Steven Flanagan who has located lots of difficult-to-find games and materials for me to use on my new site).

Anyway, if you have a few minutes to spare, please check out these new sites.

Yikes - it has only been 131 days (or 3160 hours) since my last post.... Sorry.

I had a nightmare last night which woke me up... I kid you not. In it, I was asked to replace all PCs at the school with Apple Macs. Scary stuff!

Interesting day at work today. I created all the new Year 9 student accounts (those who will be joining the school in September), and drew up some layouts for a new classroom which is being built. Trying to squeeze 26 computers in a small room is quite a challenge!

Trying to be more regular with my postings on here - watch this space.
