Feather Pen Friday: I called it Rory Williams for a reason.

Feather Pen Friday: I called it Rory Williams for a reason.

In Series 6 of the long-running BBC programme, Doctor Who, there’s this character, Rory Williams. Now the thing that’s unusual about Rory, apart from his liking for dressing up as a Roman and the fact that yeah, actually, he’s older than the Doctor … well, the thing is, he dies a lot. As does my computer. I have this habit of naming inanimate objects. Take my musical instruments: Kian, Gabriel and Linda, not to mention Mathew hanging around in the…

Moany Monday: A Day Late: Even Vista Agrees…

Moany Monday: A Day Late: Even Vista Agrees…

This post is also a day late. But you know, I have a good reason for that. What’s more, it links to the subject of the post, so I can tell you about it, and that is the post in itself. When I was thinking about what to write in this, I couldn’t think of anything at first. Perhaps I should just say I don’t have anything to moan about, I thought. Until yesterday. Then I realised that I did….

Moany Monday: I’m not going to grumble, but…

Moany Monday: I’m not going to grumble, but…

… actually I am. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been having serious issues with YouTube, in that it won’t upload anything. My computer hates me and keeps crashing and I’ve had a very stressful week with lots of exams and no free time. Right. Moan over. I’m going to do a video round-up every other Monday. For obvious reasons I can’t do that right now, since YouTube isn’t letting me upload videos and so I have nothing…

Something Sunday: I am a bad, bad person.

Something Sunday: I am a bad, bad person.

Why? Well, there are several reasons for this. First of all, I promised a while ago to put up a writing video on Tuesdays and a non-writing video on Saturdays. This week, I’ve done neither. Okay, so it technically isn’t my fault, because technology hates me. (See, this post is totally related to what I said it would be about in my plan). All through this week, I try to upload to YouTube and it gets stuck – at 0%….

Blog vs Vlog

Blog vs Vlog

I haven’t been blogging a huge amount recently. Well, it feels to me like I haven’t blogged so often. I’m not entirely sure whether that’s true, or whether it’s just an illusion, but hey. I feel like I haven’t blogged, so I’m going to go ahead and write this post regardless. Those of you that hang around here will know that I occasionally have to shamelessly self-promote my stuff. Why? Because otherwise no one would know about it, duh. (And…

Technology And I

Technology And I

Technology hates me. No, I’m being serious. I don’t mean that occasionally I can’t program things to solve simultaneous equations – the last time I did that it took me four hours, then the computer crashed and I had to do my maths homework by hand. Oh no. Technology is a sadist, and I am its unsuspecting victim… Those of you that have been around my blog for a while will know that I’m experimenting with YouTube videos. If you…

USBs With Delusions Of Grandeur

USBs With Delusions Of Grandeur

I edited fourteen pages yesterday, of size 11 Tahoma with narrow margins. It was hard work. I was going to tell you about that, but it seemed pretty obvious, since that’s what I always say. So, I’m going to talk instead about my USB pen. If you know me, follow me on Twitter, or generally talk to me elsewhere, you know that I break technology. A lot. In fact, if you read this blog you’ll know that – I’m on…
