My Commodore 64 is in my home office. How did they know?
Why do you do it?
I might miss something that makes my blood boil or make me feel sad that the world is so messed up. I’m better off giving this little guy a cuddle. 😍 Thanks Reddit.
The new normal
A month is a long time, an advert on the February 27th Naked Scientists podcast was run by the Local Enterprise Office here in Ireland for “Local Enterprise Week” at the beginning of March to “help local business grow in 2020”. I wonder will people become wary of meeting others […]
Ballintemple on Sullivan’s Quay.
If you go over to Google Maps and click on the location of the now demolished IDA building you’ll be told that you’re in Ballintemple, somewhere that is a few km to the east. A neat way to quickly get home if you happen to live in that area, but […]

Clearing the Road of Fallen Trees
