bish, legion and blogging all!
Just out of interest, I wondered if this new site had managed to get into the google listings yet. So many bishes out there, all blogging away like nine-pence! Shuffle up lovelies; room for one more at the back… Oh, and yes, I was eighth in the list – not bad for the first week.…
Linking in, and Book List

No matter the Kyoto agreements, reducing reusing recycling, saving the whale and the rainforest, facing up to climate change or the…
A day of challenges.
On arriving at site I found the network down and the switch dead, so called in to the helldesk.
“The Root of All Evil”

Well, to all one of you I guess… This is as much an opportunity to get some hands on experience of new software as it is a blog. After almost a dozen years of being “on the ‘net” I remain “a user”. I’ve managed to give up hand scripting html web sites in favour of…
