Oh, crap!

This week, I’ve a piece of ‘homework’ to do. I’ve got an interview lined up for the 16th at a company based 130 odd miles away. I’ve no problem with that at all. They’ve even given my an assignment to do. This is fine. What’s not fine is that I Read more…

PC’s, Software and other

After a few weeks of hiccups and terrible customer service, I’ve finally gotten Kevin’s PC in his house with games installed, and he’s very happy.
