For anyone out there who feels like a little social hacking and can get there, Sheffield BarCamp 2.1 is coming up.
Hosted at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema 28th -30th November 2008, it’s ‘A melting pot of community, conversation and technology’.

I reckon the attendee list looks pretty respectable (except for me, of course) so might be well worth checking it out.
There’s a load of info, and an opportunity to have a say on the content here.
Hope to see you there!

I’ve not had any delays or problems on the trips I’ve made so far, but there’s plenty of time for that to change! Continue reading “Freshers Week at 30”
I think I was probably drunk.
I don’t remember too clearly – it was definitely New Year 2008, and somehow I decided it was time I did something about my CV – it hasn’t really got any formal qualifications in IT on it. After all, I have been working professionally in IT since 2001 – it can’t be that hard, can it? Continue reading “Starting off my MSc Blog”
So you’ve got a website with some pictures that you’ve saved somewhere. The pictures work on some pages, maybe only one, put not on others. Your problem is all to do with relative links in your HTML. Continue reading “My Website’s Pictures Won’t Load!”
