Still living the “jetset” lifestyle! International travelling consultant extraordinaire! Or some such bollocks. I hate travelling for work. Staying in cheap places, flying on cheap planes, operating to cheap per diems. It’s all a bit shit really. Where’s my fucking champagne?! Had a super early flight out to Nuremberg on Monday so I had a […]

1) PSN games. I love them because they are only £8. I love them because they are simple but addictive. I love them because they are digital and there is no packaging. 2) The PlayStaion Move. Well, it arrived. I have two controllers due to some terrible communication from Amazon mixed with my own impatience! […]

1) Joe Danger, obviously! See yesterday’s post. 2) Tumble dried towels. Oh they’re so soft and squishy and lovely! I’m enjoying the softer clothes. I have yet to see my electric bill… 3) Successful project go lives. Only a few days late but for once, I’m not to blame! It’s been a tough project. Sometimes […]

1) Taking a daily photo of myself. It forces me to smile which puts me in good stead for the rest of the day. 2) The tumble dryer. I haven’t used one in years. Like about five years. Out of choice too. But I figure I need to make a balance. I can either hang […]

Back to normal this week. 1) My new camera. It’s wonderful. Still haven’t figured out all the buttons yet but just working in auto/aperture/shutter modes is working out nicely so far. Scene modes are pretty good too. 2) Birthday celebrations that last all weekend. This year my birthday went from Friday to Sunday culminating in […]

Let’s do this! 1) The missus. Yes, I’ve bumped her up to number 1 this week. She has been away all week (that’s not the reason I’ve bumped her up, like she’s become more favourable by not being here lol) and today she came back. I’ve really missed her. Like when you only notice how […]

New Tech Article

I have written a new tech article and created a new section. I’m a Sage Accpac Certified Consultant. So I’ve created an Accpac section and my first article is a guide for migrating a troublesome Pervasive database to MS-SQL. http://www.ironthumb.co.uk/articles/tech/accpac/migrating-from-pervasive-to-ms-sql/

Here we go again! 1) The Archers. I’ve listened to this show pretty much daily since I met the missus. A memorable moment is when we were stuck in traffic going the wrong way through London and ending up in Wembley while listening to Ruth near orgasming with her illicit affair with the farm hand. […]

It’s been a stressful week this week. Big project deadline looming today. 1) Programming. I love how when something goes wrong I can quickly whip up a solution. VBA is a really useful tool to have and I’m glad I bothered to teach myself, it’s been super handy this week! 2) Gardening. As you can […]

Wanted to belong here…

…but something felt so wrong here. So, following on from my post on spiritual enlightenment I have come to a conclusion. Spending time alone in hotels will do that for you! My quandry was deciding whether it’s possible to have a spiritual awakening when you haven’t really done anything bad in your life. I even […]

It’s that time of week again and what a week I’ve had! 1) Coloured socks. A little over a year ago I upgraded my sock wardrobe. I was bored of plain black socks so I got some day of the week socks and a full set of these bad boys: 2) Not sleeping in hotels. […]
