Long time no update


It was brought to my attention yesterday that I haven’t been blogging that much recently, being busy with other things means that I haven’t had time to reflect on what I have been up to.

Reflecting upon the blog itself, in its current form I started it on October 23rd, 2003 – almost 5 years ago. I actually had an older blog with custom PHP that I wrote before that, and even longer before that I had an HTML blog that I edited in a text editor. Adding up to about 10 years of blogging. I have thought about taking these older posts and including them in this blog but they seem so old now that they really are not relevant to anyone – and contain nothing interesting about my personal life so I see no need to drag up old technology for the sake of it.

Looking at the blog for a moment it really does need some work, the images are all over the place, the text formatting is quite awful – particularly when I post code and some of the images for older posts just don’t exist any more. In the future I will learn to get the images on to the localsite instead of linking. I guess either I have to get down and sort it out (unlikely with everyone else going on)

So what have I been up to. Well I have spent quite a lot time working with Django in my personal time. I love that framework though the recent upgrade from a point release to 1.0 caused some major headaches.

At work we have released Viz|Link, which I have been working on for a long time, and I am currently working on GUI work and doing some C++ coding.

Home is looking like a home more and more. Almost all the boxes are gone and there is just some building work to be done. And all the painting – only the first hall way has been tackled at the moment. Photos soon…

Other than that I am going to England this weekend as long as I can find a hotel and K&I are doing Cuban Salsa every week which is fun. Svenska lessons start next month – can’t wait!

I wish I could provide an update on all the food & drinking places that I have been going to in Stockholm but memory is drawing a blank at the moment. This will have to do for now.
