The long Friday

Today was Friday – what a revelation!! Last night we went to the NOC to do some work and install a server for a new client. As was to be expected, we didn’t get back to Carlow until late…. What I was not expecting was the busiest day for the company we’ve had so far. […]

Useful Software

If I was asked to come up with a list of useful software I’d be hardpushed to give a simple answer. There are so many useful bits of software out there, but maybe they aren’t all that important. I like a lot of the Macromedia products, I just wish they were a bit more affordable. […]

LOTR – revisited

Madness. There is no other word to describe it. I’ve been on holidays since the 23rd but still haven’t got to see LOTR. I’ve seen all the documentaries etc., but not the film itself. Ah well .. … Related Posts:No Related Posts

Lord of the Rings : The Return of the King

After waiting twelve months for its release the third part, which corresponds to the third book in Tolkien’s trilogy, has been released. I knew that the first few days after the release it would be pointless trying to see it in any of the cinemas, but I really want to see it this weekend. I’ve […]
