I recently went to Cracking The Interview, a RecWorks Career Hacking event organised via the London Java Community. As one of the six Interviewers talking about our experiences and pet peeves, I was fascinated by some of the differences in techniques, but also the similarities. The top three common dos and don’ts were… Continue reading Cracking the Interview – Tips for Success
I started blogging in 2004, shortly after Microsoft released MSN Spaces. Everyone around me had been blogging their lives on LiveJournal for months, I was doing some pretty cool things at work and I felt I had experiences to share. At the time, I also had a reasonably successful side-project compiling a list of Windows Media Centre plugins, so blogging was a natural extension to that. Continue reading Back to Blogging
Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!
Go on. It’ll be the most exercise I’ve had all year!
So I’m clearly back form my weekend holiday in Barcelona which was pretty good, but several months later it’ll be a little hard to remember all the details. Plus, since this is the last time I’ll be properly on the web this side of Christmas, I thought I’d do a quick update (the iPhone is very good, but writing blog entries on it takes a lot of perseverance).
I’ve now worked for The AA for about 2 months, having made the decision it was time to move on. I’m having fun again, working on a large B2B project with some good people, and I’m particularly loving working in a building that has it’s own restaurant *and* café. However, being stuck in the snow the other night wasn’t particularly fun.
I’m also off the singles market at the moment, dating the wonderful Beth, who probably won’t appreciate her Christmas present as much as I’ll appreciate mine. I’ll make it up to her at some point.
And I suppose that’s about it. If I’d have been blogging properly over the last few months, then someone could probably have made a feature film out of it.
Have a good Christmas, and in case I’m not back to write it before 2010, have a good New Year as well.
Just wanted to say I’m off to Barcelona so that the last entry on my blog isn’t about "The Friend Zone".
Enjoy the British weather
Something I came up with in a conversation earlier this evening…
I have a penthouse in the capital city of Friend-land, where everyone gets along. It’s got a fantastic view of the world outside the friend zone, where people are making out with each other and having relationships right in your face. sometimes they broadcast it on TV.
I think about selling the penthouse sometimes, but then I look around and think about what I could be losing, cause on the far side of relationship valley (full of roses and wonderfully starlit evening), I can see the trash-heap of failed romances.
And the only reason I still think abot it, it because I can also see, in the far, far distance on top of a hill in the sunny, happy countryside, the house with the nice garden and the kids playing in itm with an old couple sat outside on rocking chairs. And that signifes a relationship gone right.
…It might have been more poetic if I had spell checked it.
"It can be reasonably easy to build an application for the iPhone, but getting it noticed is a different business altogether."
Only one upcoming event and it’s online.
