Playing with Facebook’s Timeline Cover Picture

I saw this great post “How to Hack Your Facebook Profile Photo with Timeline” over on Gizmodo and had to have a go myself. The idea is, by playing around with your Profile and Cover pictures on Facebook, you can get a pretty nifty effect. I didn’t have the greatest of source pictures, but ifContinue Reading

Define an English Person… gasp!

I tried to explain as best I could, in particular by highlighting the difference between geeks and nerds (I am definitely one and not the other).Continue Reading

I think we have a different definition for onsite…

Ok, a bit of a cheeky one here but I cannot help it. It made me smile, plus it’s a cheap shot at a competitor! In this business, in fact in just about any trade I can think of, when we refer to “onsite support” or “onsite repair”, we mean at the customer’s site. SoContinue Reading

Cat v Printer

Ever lost your temper with your printer?  You’re not alone. A (somewhat sweary) video that was sent to me by the lovely Barbara Rogers, who is a fundraiser for Cruse Bereavement Care. NSFW (or small children!)Continue Reading
