The Pro’s and Con’s of Working At Home
Since October 2006 I’ve been self employed doing web design & hosting with Chris / Salt & Light Solutions, the odd bit of computer repair work and, primarily, doing the day to day admin for PocketGPSWorld.com‘s speed camera database. The latter essentially being a full time job (along with app development, web site stuff, customer support etc). I wouldn’t change it for the world. Well, as the title suggests, working […]
I’ve had 3.5 days in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress (MWC) reporting for PocketGPSWorld and Wired4iPhone. It was great but owing to easyJet’s failure to get my boss over there from Gatwick I was rather busy! Needless to say I’m knackered and my calves are killing me… It’s been less than 12 months since I covered CeBIT for PocketGPSWorld but my mind had clearly removed from it’s memory how much […]
Cold, Hayfever or Man-Flu?
It’s not quite hot enough for hayfever but then it’s not really cold and wet enough for a cold. Well, I presume it needs to be cold and wet to catch a cold as my Mum always told me “you’ll catch yer death of cold going out in the cold and wet without a coat on”. Either way, I’m bunged up and feel as rough as a dog. Much to […]
Why Did I Bother?!
At about 1 this morning I signed up to a handful of free online business directory thingy’s in the hope of drumming up a bit of business. Each one, however, had a warning that they “have been receiving reports of companies phoning soon after adding a listing to try and sell advertising space, these are in no way affiliated with us”. Needless to say I’ve had three of these calls […]
For those thinking “it’ll be Christmas by the time he blogs again” well, you’re wrong. But not too far from the truth though! Been stupidly busy sorting out poorly kids and poorly me as well as trying to get stuff sorted for the Christmas play I stupidly agreed to do… I’ve been pretty busy with work stuff to – lots to do with PocketGPSWorld.com as usual but I’ve also recently […]
Well, yes, it’s been over 10 weeks since I last blogged – and that was a rubbish one… So, what have I been up to? Well, lots really! Still working hard though! The main reason for the lack of updates was my main PC dying. The motherboard died but it wasn’t just a case of replacing it. Noooo… stupid MaFt decided to have one of those Small Form Factor PCs […]
The Separation of Work & Home
It may seem kinda weird but since I’ve been working on a PC all day long at home I hardly ever seem to have any inclination to use my own PC! While this in itself is no big deal it just means that loads of stuff I need to do keeps getting put off – like the pile of camcorder video’s I need to edit and burn to disc, websites […]
