Southampton are back in the top half of the English Premier League table. I hope they stay there! There was yet another cracker of a match between Arsenal and Manchester United. It ended in a draw, but was full of controversy as usual. It looks like Arsenal will run away with the league this year. Read more about 2004-03-29 10:54:49[…]
I had a very nice weekend. RA came around on Sunday and we had lunch and dinner at the Three Monkeys, my favourite little cafe. We talked for ages and I’m sure the cafe staff were wondering if we’d ever leave. Anyway, a nice little catch-up. Today was rather slow. It’s very hard cutting a Read more about 2004-03-29 08:28:10[…]
RGW was confirmed as a Ph.D candidate today. His confirmation seminar was very interesting. His topic is to do with trust, security and privacy in ubiquitous computing environments. Some guy was using his mobile phone in a bathroom stall today. At least I hope that’s what he was doing. It was kind of weird walking Read more about 2004-03-26 06:56:21[…]

I’ve captioned all my photos from New Zealand. There are a few that will have to be re-captioned because I’m not entirely sure of place names and so forth. I can glean the place names from the footage that my brother took with his new video camera. I went to see Once Upon a Time Read more about 2004-03-20 08:19:55[…]
I’ve published a small selection of the photos that I shot in New Zealand at this web page. Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to caption the pictures, but this will be done in due course. I say it’s a small selection even though there are 135 pictures because I took over 650 pictures altogether!
Okay, so it’s been ages since I wrote an entry in this diary. The end of January seems to be the last time I was bothered to write anything, and a lot has happened since then. I’ve had another birthday, which was celebrated very nicely indeed, and I’ve been to New Zealand for two and Read more about 2004-03-16 13:28:07[…]
