Why Blogging Image

Since starting this blog about a particular subject, and then drifting off onto various other things, it got me thinking about how other people do their blogging?


TrueOS again

I had a couple of hours free this afternoon, so decided to waste them having another play with TrueOS on my MacBook Air.

I’ve already blogged about the first attempt here but thought things might have moved on and wanted something to play around with FreeBSD outside of a VM on my FreeNAS server. (more…)


I was chatting with my Mum a few months ago about cars, and it got me thinking about all the cars I’ve had a driving relationship with.  I say that, as it doesn’t include other people’s cars or ones I’ve hired but ones that I’ve spent at least a number of months driving since passing my test in 1991.  Quite a few have been company cars, although more recently they’ve been cars I’ve bought and pretty much driven until they died!  Most of the earlier pictures are just ones found on the internet, but the later ones are the actual cars.


If you haven’t heard of this stuff, check out their website >

I think I saw it advertised on Facebook a few years back, and at the time had a number of frayed cables that this stuff was advertised as fixing.  It’s a mouldable rubber compound and feels a little like sticky Blue Tak when you get it out of the packet.  It’s easy to mould into whatever shape you need, and after drying for around 12 hours just feels like rubber.  Pretty sure they only did black and white when I bought some, but they now make it in a variety of colours and you can pick it up in loads of places, including Amazon.  I’ve still got 2 of the 8 packs I originally bought, and whilst the expiry date is August 2016, it still works fine.
