My blog is still here! With the upturn in Facebook and Twitter over the last 12 months I've not posted much as I guess l've become a bit of a FB'aholic and am fascinated by it from a professional point of view. The introduction of AJAX powered chat in a browser has seen a lot of my friends contacting me via FB chat and the private message system provides more personal messages than I get through email. From a cynical standpoint, FB is potentially very sinister as they've got too big but the same could have been said about Google a few years ago but their star has waned slightly.
City Link have found my Zumo and they delivered it this morning. It's sittting at home waiting for me..
Adam got himself an Electrisave over Christmas. It clips around the main electricity cable coming out of the meter and transmits usage information wirelessly to a desktop unit that you can move around the house. He reckons that with a bit of investigation work he's going to knock over 50% off his electricity bill as a result of knowing what costs what. The biggest culprit is devices on standby. A treadmill in the garage that looked turned off was costing 2p an hour on standby.
