Personal posts, ie; about me.

Might revamp the site sometime!

Languishing due to more activity on Facebook with friends (so many photos there!) and less conferences and events attended, I must admit I’ve left this place a bit. Not even edited the automatic robots.txt so Google lost me. However I feel I need a project and this one is just on the side of not-so-time-consuming […]

New Year and All That Jazz

Happy 2010! Except there hasn’t been any 2010 yet…so I guess, Happy 2009! Hope it was a good year. What will I be doing in 2010…always nice to plan a bit. Well, first I need to fix my watch, which stopped on the 2nd of January, must be the battery dying. I did almost lose […]

I am constantly finding things I should do, watch, see, play, listen to, read, think about and enjoy. Cultural things – all kinds of games, plays, music, film, TV, books…etc. I’m making smallish lists and looking out for things when I have a chance to see them. I think it is well worth sharing these […]

“Andrew’s Site” name

Meta-site thought here: I named my site “Andrew’s Site” all the way back in yesteryear when I created it using WordPress. I’ve been wondering if it is frankly a terrible name or not. I’m not the only Andrew out there – and seeing it linked to as “Andrew’s Site” is a tad boring, unlike say […]
