Notes:

My background is in I.T., but I have most recently worked for the Credit Risk Management department of an international bank.

Opinions I offer at advogato are my own opinion and not supported by my employer.

I have experience in three island nations:

I'm a friendly soul, who will talk about most stuff, even if I don't know what I'm talking about. I am married with three sons, believe in God, speak at Toastmasters and waste far too much time on this sort of thing.

An apology: My Twitter posts are automatically syndicated daily to LiveJournal, and my LiveJournal posts were syndicated to Advogato until a few minutes ago. titus pointed out that these have little to do with Open Source development these days. He's right, so I've cancelled syndication to here. If you want, you can still follow me through Twitter, LJ or FaceBook. If you're seeing my tweets anywhere else, please let me know!

Tweets for Today

  • 08:02 Off to work again. I don't think I got nearly enough sleep last night. Back too late, then twittering, couldn't get to sleep. Weekend soon! #
  • 08:46 @tobyho I'm sure Mr Dylan himself would say Senor is about six minutes, from a response to a 60s journo who asked what his songs were about. #
  • 08:50 @reyes I was tweeting all night from a VF BB. But between Euston and Chester? Quite different matter. Even on trains with "enhanced signal". #
  • 12:38 Straight down Bishopsgate, past the mass of roadworks and other construction. Blue skies, busy streets. #
  • 17:46 Loads of beautiful smelling but overpriced flowers for sale on Liverpool St station tonight. Guess it must be St V day soon. Tomorrow! #
  • 18:13 Am on the 18.10 to Chester, a remarkable achievement seeing as I didn't leave Bishopsgate till 17.38. It's dark outside. Or is it a tunnel? #
  • 19:18 Hello to all new followers... great to have you. It looks - so far - as if the train to Chester will actually be there on time. Much better! #
  • 20:23 Now at Chester Station with @vivhalliday - next stop Bromborough and hot, sweet coffee. #
  • 21:28 Christopher said: If you think your life sucks, try having chemotherapy on Valentine's Day. #
  • 23:47 Last coffee of the night. And I've remembered to turn the heating off, so we won't wake up baking and parched in the middle of the night. #

  • 08:00 On the mornings when I seem to be late to breakfast, I arrive at the station earlier! Overcompensation by eating faster? Eating less? #
  • 11:49 @JoMangee no, it's never tomorrow. If it's after midnight, it's still today - just a different one. #
  • 19:02 I've arrived at London Twestival. Already around a hundred people here and I think it will be pretty crowded in here in just a few minutes. #
  • 19:41 It's snowing outside at Twestival. Already met a load of fascinating people here. No, it doesn't feel like a geekfest. #
  • 20:58 Here at Twestival the singer on the main stage is singing Walk On The Wild Side. While three ladies in spangly stuff dance to it. #
  • 21:48 It's getting ever noisier at the London Twestival. Still snowing. Packed in here. Never been to anything quite like this before. #
  • 21:49 @ChuckSmith saluton from London Twestival #
  • 23:54 Well, that's it from the Twestival in London. Lots of fun, lots of money raised for charity: water. Now back to Wembley. Met Line for once. #

  • 13:22 Round the block to buy a sandwich. #
  • 15:26 Well, on another round trip. London to Wirral and back within nineteen hours. On an insanity scale of zero to ten, surely an eight or nine. #
  • 15:45 Oh, that's all we need. Just arrived at Euston and they're asking Inspector Sands to report to the Control Centre. #
  • 15:50 Yes, Euston Station has just been evacuated due to a reported emergency. So, what for the 16.10 to Chester? Fire sirens are wailing here. #
  • 16:01 Various BTPs and other staff are inside the station, but the rest of us are outside. All trains up to 1610 showing as "delayed" of course. #
  • 16:09 All the staff are back into Euston and there is an expectation that passengers will be let back in shortly. Some trains retimed. #
  • 16:10 And we're back. #
  • 16:15 Staff lady shouts. "Do not run: the trains will not leave without you" and I'm now on it. 2 hours to Chester, signals & weather permitting. #
  • 16:22 Left Euston at 16.21 or thereabouts. #
  • 16:36 Apparently we'll be 16 minutes late at MK and only seven by the time I get to Chester (18.16, new projected time) - well, we'll see. #
  • 16:47 North of Bletchley and suddenly all the fields are covered with snow again. That's not what I would have expected. #
  • 17:59 As the train runs just that little bit slower, the chances of catching the 18.30 out of Chester are getting that bit slimmer. :+( #
  • 18:33 Actually saw the train leave Chester on its way north. So now it's a rearranged lift and an inconvenience to others. Sorry Debbi #
  • 19:34 Nearly at Hoylake for the Deanery meeting. There *might* be time for a coffee beforehand. #
  • 22:00 Home, after a discussion on the future of Deaneries in Wirral. Fascinating. Coffee now calls, of course. #
