So the reason for no exciting updates recently is that i moved to London to work on a contract for 12 months.
This is my first time living in London, a place full of parakeets where it takes an hour to get anywhere in the city, no more no less.
Perks are that there are loads of gigs to go to, and i joined a football team, (last year they were effectively the 2nd worst team in London.) which turned out to consist of friends of my schoolmate and esteemed web host, Mr C. Black!
What else, what else. not much really. work, sport, noisy busy city where everyone seems to be looking forward to the day they can move somewhere else.
Colleagues trading war stories about their 3 hour horror commutes, while i walk 30 minutes to the office.
Cycling through the city is a bit crazy - happily the new bike superhighways provide some protection from the traffic, but the repeated scrums of 30 cyclists at the traffic lights are entertaining, and have
seen some people with indicator lights on the back of their helmets when they turn which is cool.
You've got a hierarchy of speeds: slowest the heavy boris bikes, then the foldign bromptons with their tiny wheels, then the middle crowd which i put myself in, and finally the lycra clad speed demons, coming out of nowhere.
Not sure how long i'll be here at this point. The money is undisputably good, and life isn't too bad, apart from the daunting distance from here to anywhere wild...

Techy blog upheaval - Flickr have decided to limit free accounts to 1000 photos. So i've had to set up more accounts, and change some code around so they get merged in my backend database. Seems to work!

Well. On the train on the way down to London.

Trying not to worry about what I may have forgotten to pack.

[EDIT] I'm in London
