One Man's Notebook


Good grief - 5G in central London is quite something…

So, by botching a Spotlight search for Teams, I accidentally opened a search for “teacup puppies”.

I win the internet today.

Ghost 5.0 is here…

Finished reading: From the Mull to the Cape by Richard Guise 📚

A pleasant enough read. Entertaining in place, interesting in others. But a few rather ill-judged attempts at humour made me wince. Good enough that I’ll likely read another of his cycling adventure memoirs.

Whoops.

I found out today that one of my good university / student magazine buddies passed away some weeks ago. Regretting deeply phone calls not made, chats postponed too long and which will now never happen.

Netflix’s itchy cancellation finger has made me less and less likely to start watching a new series there. Our subscription is safe for now, but it won’t take too many more series abruptly truncated without resolution before it’ll be heading for the chopping block.

I might get used to these “swimming pool by 7.30am” Sunday starts.

Today is not the day that happens.

Well, yes, you need to protect your magazine brand. But maaaaaybe check that the business hasn’t been using the name longer than you have

These are my people.

I was completely unaware that today was Friday the 13th until I read John Naughton’s daily post.

Two hours left to avoid bad luck!

Was slightly thrown to see @maique out of context — in the Fastmail newsletter.

Day 12: Tranquility

Down by the harbour arm, sharing half an hour and hot drinks with my eldest.

Thanks to today’s theme from @challenges, I find myself debating whether my hoodie is, in fact, maroon or not.

After years of doing digital work, editing a (print) book can be a challenge. “Oh, I’ll pop a link in to explain… oh, right, can’t do that…”

Day 10: Pot

I’m fond of this pot. And yes, I know that the pot inside the pot is a bit too big. I just don’t care.

 

The bedroom pot…

Can anyone point me to the master list of May Photoblogging prompts? My attempts to locate it have failed…

This is very good. And no, it’s not what you’re assuming…

I have no idea what differentiates a badge and a brooch. Anyone?
