    The Ususal Neglect!

    This blog used to be a place for me to vent my point of veiw, share anything that I felt was worth sharing. However lately (past few years) this blog has just been sitting idle awaiting for me to do something, anything! but I’ve come to the conclusion that onece the ssl cert and domain […]

  • 18U Open Frame Server Rack (part 1)

    My last post was about the 6U network cabinet I was using up until recently, I found a great price on an adjustable depth 18U open frame rack that was going to fit everything that I’m currently using and still have space to expand going forward. So, what’s changed since the last update? Well, quite […]

  • Home Network Reshuffle (yes again!)

    So around this time last year I embarked upon the task to tidy up the home networking equipment and consolidate it into a cabinet with the idea to reduce the noise and physical appearance. Well it’s not finished as it’s developed into a continuous evolving process. I was soon to discover that buying only a […]

  • Home Network Redesign

    So after many years (almost ten) of having all my networking hardware sitting on top of my old IBM eServer, it was finally time to tidy it up and reduce some ambient fan noise in the room. So the motivation for this was really the latter part, as there’s a few things in my computer/radio […]

  • Typical Neglect!

    Well I’m not real good with keeping things updated on this blog these days, it’s one of those things that you can fully immerse yourself into or neglect it (I seem to do the latter) When I started this blog on January 1st 2009 it was more of a learning platform for me to gain […]

  • Time to face facts

    As much as I don’t want to admit defeat, reality is slapping me hard in the face. It’s been three months since our much loved little girl Maisie didn’t come home. Your disappearance has had such a devastating impact on all of us (Clare, Nicholas & myself) I miss you Maisie, I love you even […]

  • 42 Days

    As I’ve previously posted on here that our much loved moggie Maisie is missing, I can’t believe that it’s been 42 days since I last cuddled her and told her how much I love her and that she’s my best friend, whilst giving her a pat and kisses on her head (and listening to her […]

  • Still Nothing of Maisie 😢

    It’s now been 16 days since Maisie disappeared. We’ve done two letterbox drops of the street and I’ve been searching the local tracks close to our house and I’ve found nothing. No clumps of fur on the ground, no blood trails, it’s just like she vanished. Although I will never stop looking for Maisie, it’s […]
