It starts just like the rest of them Clothing shrugged and bleary eyes Doubting Thomas, slippering awake Stops and stairs, not yet for the day Half-made choices mingling, mangling Teaspoon stirs, marmalade jars Shrieking gadgets sound the charge Curtains swish, … Continue reading

Sloe gin in hand. Twelve years ago, I had an idea – and we all know how dangerous those can be. Still, I went with it. I was never 100% happy with the result, which is unsurprising given that I … Continue reading

Dear Sir, We all love a bargain, and it can be quite galling to pay the kinds of rates some hotels see as normal for very basic facilities, so I applaud your pricing strategy. I also very much appreciated the … Continue reading

The weekend before I was due to fly to Mumbai, I was starting to feel quite excited. A whole new continent and a whole new experience – having heard various things (positive and negative) about the place, I was keen … Continue reading

Every now and then I read a book which makes me feel simple, profound gratitude to the author. For having the gift of being articulate in the first place, but then, spending the time to pull together a work which … Continue reading

Has it really been ten years? The first edition of Marillion/Separated Out (The Complete History) was released in the autumn of 2002. As I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started, I wrote the story as … Continue reading

In about 6 weeks’ time I will be sleeping rough, under the banner of Byte Night. I won’t really be sleeping rough, of course. I will take my old, but functional sleeping bag, carry mat and reasonably healthy self to … Continue reading

And once again, a bijou record label that has been developed from the ground up through hard work and dedication, and which then sees the next logical step as accepting the advances of a larger, more powerful and seemingly equally … Continue reading

The universe. Profound in its enormity. The detailed atomic structure of a particle in the depths of space, simultaneously illustrating both immeasurable breadth and infinite detail. And likewise we are specks, motes, purposeless fragments floating in our own, great beyond … Continue reading

It must have been the beetroot detox smoothie. After 6 months of what I believed was less than adequate preparation, including a pulled hip muscle in September and a fortnight of man-flu in February, and carrying a stone more than … Continue reading

That’s 87 days of self-abuse and semi-sobriety for me, 87 days of grumpiness for everyone else, but all in a good cause as I’m running the Paris Marathon in April. As previous fundraising has been for overseas causes, I wanted … Continue reading

When I was a child, I remember a television series called Poldark. I say “remembered” but I don’t recall all that much about it – some period costumes, sombre lighting, a few ships on Cornish waves, and the occasional bit of dialogue is about it. One bit that stuck in my mind for the past [...]

I had an idea I wanted to test – that business texts and self-help books are written by people who are sufficiently compelled to do so. Here’s the principle: we keep going with our humdrum lives until we reach a point we don’t want to do it any more, for whatever reason. Some of us [...]

Apologies for this – but I’ve stumbled across the command that enables an SSH session to run on my SS4000-E storage server.

I was [...]

The only thing we lacked was the numbers. There, I’ve said it. Thirty-forty people came, that’s a few over the number of tickets we sold; plus some local friends popped along for the afternoon to have a beer and listen in to the acoustic sets. But, despite the turn-out, the Summer Garden Party was fabulous. [...]
