Well, Siân and I got married and the whole day was great. I think I managed to keep face with the speech but I’ll have to wait for the video. 🙂 A great day was had by all and just looking forward to the rest of our lives now.
I laughed yesterday when I heard this; the e-voting machines in the Florida voting area for the presidential election have crashed causing a wee bit of excitement amongst those interested in challenging the outcome of the election. It’s not the first time that something strange has happened in the Florida area. I sincerely hope that… Read More »US Voting ‘Glitch’
Articles like this are great. Somebody has made a mistake but doesn’t want to tell anyone about it and then the story leaks without all the details making the whole fiasco sound really bad.

Just read this little snippet and accompanying photo on Mícheál’s weblog. It’s amazing, funny and frightening to think that people actually thought this back in 1954. When did the whole miniturisation thing become a sign of progress? At least the machine was to be programmed in Fortran so we can identify that the engineers were… Read More »Modern Computing as told by 1954
It’s good to know that on this day that I celebrate the passing of one year and the start of another (i.e. my birthday) that the status quo of common sense is still holding strong. Noteworthy events of the early morning include Presidents dismissing the findings of their intelligence agencies. Former singer Cat Stevens refused… Read More »On This Day…
It appears a recent attack on Irish internet consumers, by some deviant software offerings, is set to bring about the biggest clamp down on telecoms that the country has ever seen. Users of the internet have been targeted with dialler software that changes their internet connection settings causing them to “dial-up” through a premium call… Read More »The Number You Have Dialled is Not in Service…
