And another Brighton Bloggers/wifi observation. The only bloggers who had their laptops on display, had Macs. So, are the PC laptop owners too embarassed to bring their ugly bricks to the pub with them, or are they just too heavy (I know mine is!)?

Brighton Bloggers Meetup
So, tonight was the Brighton Bloggers first meetup. And, of course, Jeremy and Pete were blogging from the event (we were at Grand Central, complete with wifi provided by Loose Connection.)
On Saturday evening we
On Saturday evening, we helped Simes celebrate his birthday by going along to one of the Music for a Summer Evening events at Kenwood House. We saw Bjorn Again, and I have to say they were great. I’d never been sure about the whole tribute band thing, but thought it might be fun, and it was. Daisy, now 18 months old, appears to be a bit of a rock chick, and seemed to particularly enjoy herself.
So when look out
So, when I look out of the office window, this is the view I get. It’s probably the best view I’ve ever had from my desk…
The Brighton Bloggers meetup
The Brighton Bloggers meetup for next week has been mentioned in today’s NTK Event Queue which is pretty cool.
On Tuesday, just after I’d got home from work, Kirsty called to ask me if I could help her. Jeremy and Duncan had gone out on a bike ride, and had both fallen off their bikes and injured themselves. Kirsty came around and collected me in her truck, and we headed off to find them. Fortunately they’d gone on a ride I know well, and so with the help of the OS map we were able to find them. We dropped them off at the hospital, then unpacked the bikes before Kirsty headed back to sit in A&E for 4 or so hours. The diagnosis was that Duncan had fractured the tip of his finger, and Jeremy had to have 14 stiches in a nasty cut on his forearm.
Fame at last
About 6 weeks ago I did an interview on blogging for the Daily Mirror. It’s made it into the Carol@Mirror section today.
Having recently watched the
Having recently watched the last (in the series?) of Adam & Joe Go Tokyo, I’ve come to the conclusion that there should be much more Adam and Joe on TV. Mind you, I said pretty much the same thing for Lee and Herring…
Sure, not everyone liked it compared to Adam and Joe’s other shows, but it worked for me. I’ve had a couple of happy seconds playing Gets! (or Get’s), and I’ll be shopping for Plus-Tech Squeeze Box.
The Brighton Bloggers site
The Brighton Bloggers site has had a face lift. And it was really easy to implement too. Big thanks to Jeremy Keith.
ve just been looking
I’ve just been looking around the internet searching for somewhere selling The West Wing Series 1 cheaper than Amazon, and I stumbled across Priceclash who do comparison shopping for DVDs, videos, CDs and games but who seem to cover far more stores than Kelkoo or any of the other alternatives. One to bookmark I think.
