Travel together

I met a nice woman from Kent on the plane. She was going to visit friends in Tokyo. It was her first trip to Japan.

Seeing her excitement brought back some memories of my first day in Japan which was a pretty weird one.

Travel day

What can I say about the flight?

It was long and boring. The fantastic part was the all female crew. I've never been on a widebody plane before where all 3 crew were female. It was nice to see some progress.

Documents as a web service

Office on the web.

I'm trying out Google docs.  Spartan but functional.

Update: The title doesn't seem to come over even though I've got it set to include that "when possible".  Rats!

Spring is here

It was a perfect day. The weather was 23C and the sky was blue.

A pale moon hung over the birthday party for my eternally smiling niece, Sarah.

We hung out in the back yard and I found how what a great slugger Vinny is.

The only thing that spoilt this day was the absence of the loves of my life.

Music and Lyrics

I went to see this chick flick today. It was pretty good. Emi loves this kind of movie so I hope we can see it together sometime.

I went to see Charlie's girls play soccer today but because of a mixup about the time I ended up getting there right as the game ended. Rats!

Wordpress compromised

Wordpress 2.1.1 compromised.

I'd like to thank whoever is packaging Wordpress in Fedora extras. I've wanted to switch to yum for my wordpress upgrades for some time but the package in extras had been lagging current until recently.


I've been trying out various Xen providers.

I have to say slicehost seems to be really good right now.

Of course they are new so we'll have to see how they fair over the next few years.
