For over a decade and a half Stuart has been in love with all things science fiction ortechnology and for almost fourteen of those years his operating system of choice has been one breed of Linux or another and despite some brief trips back into the world of Windows Stuart has never found him self wanting anything else.
While in his business life Stuart works for a large organisation where computing doesn’t really play any role, aside from the odd Excel macro, he still makes the time to keep up with the latest news and innovations and currently the chairman for The Software Society ltd. Dundee’s Linux Users Group where he organising each meeting and gathers some of the best speakers from the local area, while encouraging students from both University’s to get involved.
As many of you will have noticed we’ve been having intermittent down time this year. While I can still boast of 91% uptime over the last 30 days, that doesn’t really seem enough and I know there are regular ‘short’ outages throughout the week that need resolved once and for all. Over the long weekend […]
This is a question most people who, at any level, class themselves as self-employed. During my research I found this quote I love. You know you’re a hairdresser when your invited to a dinner party and everyone else is asked to bring a plate, but your asked to bring your scissors I’m not a hairdresser, […]
The only way to improve my writing is by writing. So what do I write about? I intend to write more tutorials and how to guides, but since I’m resolving to give my work the time of dwarves these will take time to write and research. So what do I write in the mean time? […]
We all need it and we all eat it. We have a relationship with food and I think that relationship defines our health. I want to eat healthily, but I’ve not been for years so this is still something I need to talk myself into. When I’m good it’s easy, when I’m not I slip. […]
I’ve run this site for years and like all things it costs money. Hosting, domain names and even some of of the Wordpress plugins I use and highly recommend. These things all have costs involved, costs I happily fork out each year. I’ve tried monetizing this site in the past with little or no success, yet I’ve decided to try once more. But this time I’m thinking about it. I have come up with a plan.
My site has been kicking around the months, with periodic bursts of content. The strange thing is as I look back at the last few months there’s hardly a day gone by where I’ve not done something to the site, so where’s all that effort going if not too content.
On Thursday the European Commission announced it would bar individuals and organisations from registering or renewing .eu domain names following the UK’s departure from the European Union. Since I own and operate a .eu.com domain I’ve been obviously concerned.
Full disclosure, I hate reading self-help books. In my 670 library I think there are only 4 such books. That all said this post was spurred on from such a book. As many may know I’ve been on a health journey for more than a few years now. And to say I’ve been taking the […]
I’ve been at this whole fitness and health lark for almost six years and yet I’ve never weighed more, or felt so unfit.
What a nothing day. I really don’t like Tuesday’s, it’s also it day which doesn’t help at all. But I started my day off with the same breakfast as yesterday but this time I paid attention to portion control and stuck too the 45g serving. But Pain Au Chocolat for morning break was a key […]
It comes around sure as clockwork. I don’t hate Mondays, honest. I find them fairly harmless today more than most. I started my day with a mostly healthy breakfast. The problem I’ve got with cereals is portion control. I don’t know about most but the standard 30 gram serving just isn’t enough for a full […]
I started this weekend making the mistake of checking my weight graph. As I should have expected it’s sky rocketed since August, must be married life. But it’s probably a combination of things really, centering around the lack of any progress being made much before the wedding, which put a damper on enthusiasm. But hey […]
My Huel ‘experiment’ was never going to be a five-day all in blast, there are already more than enough of them online, and so I continue this week. Last week’s take away was taste above all else. In order to make this switch I’ve got to get a flavour that works for me. Huel provides […]
This morning’s breakfast was Huel and coffee. Kinda worked, but like allot of things this week I could have a ether more coffee or a better/stronger one. Instant coffee just didn’t have a good kick. Looking back over the last few days a common problem has been lunch, I keep letting my self down with […]
Said I wouldn’t, but I did anyway. This is definitely show a weight increase. It could be down to drinking more, almost twice as much as yesterday, but it’s probably cause I’m eating too much at lunch and dinner. If I do switch to Huel next week for lunch at least that could take care […]
We’ve made it to Thursday which means the weekend is now closer than yesterday. Which I suppose is always the case, but still it’s the principle. This morning’s Huel was fairly simple. 50g Huel powder and 250ml water, but I also added 60g frozen summer fruits. This time at least there was flavour so I’m […]
As you can tell from yesterday I’m a day behind with my blogging so I thought today I’d consolidate Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday Only breakfast again, but this time I used a Strawberry flavour boost. Still a 50g breakfast of around 200 calories. I can’t say I really knew there was a strawberry taste. It […]
