This is my main blog - it's been going since 2004. It was originally my personal diary but has expanded to something more sophisticated, thanks to Blogger. Most articles on this site are unfinished and remain so. I am trying very very hard to change this!
I have a sidebar on the right - please scroll down - full great web sites, articles, podcasts, etc.
The tone of this blog is mostly unfocussed, and long may it remain so...
