So, either the GPS was completely wrong, I’m a stronger swimmer than I let on to be, or I was travelling on the car ferry between Rosslare and Fishguard. Yes, we’re just back from Wales after a marvellous holiday. The weather wasn’t always that great (it’s exactly the same as […]
A short time lapse video I shot from the temporary Polldaddy HQ in Reykjavik, Iceland. I shot it with my Android phone over the course of about an hour. My battery hit 9% remaining charge by the end of it! I’ve never seen the weather change so fast or so […]

Wow, the house just shook! Toni found some info on it, and I got it from Andy. Magnitude 4.4 apparently, but 42 miles away. Podz mentioned it too. What did you do when you felt it? Did you run to the door, duck, take cover? No, we blogged it! 2020 […]
