Come on brain, give it a rest. OK, so you've just figured out how to do something at work you've had on the back burner for ages and planned out exactly how to do it (plus about a dozen other things) but if you don't shut down and get some sleep now you'll be completely useless in the morning (in 6.5 hours) to do anything about it.

Thanks Philip. Just from my Nexus 4 (in airplane mode of course) as we forgot our camera. Will do another set next time we go.

DynDNS is no longer free, but there are tons of great free alternatives. We're building a list of them:
As you may have heard, DynDNS is shutting down its free plans, which is a bit of a bummer. Still, they're not the only option if you need a hostname to use to access your home computers from anywhere, and you don't want to spend money for it. Here are some alternatives.

OK, so it's from a packet but any sauce with a "wash your hands" label should be interesting.

Took this quick shot over the local canal on the way to work this morning. I know the canal doesn't usually have much of a surface ripple but this morning just seemed unusually still.

First attempt at geocahing was a bust, assuming the clue and other log book entries are pointing where I think they are.

I factory reset my 2012 Nexus 7 on Saturday morning and is given it a while new lease of life. It's been getting gradually slower over the last 6 months and I just wasn't able to find a definitive cause so I took the plunge.

So far so good and is getting a while chunk of use again, including in work on Saturday.

WTF is going on brain? You know I have to be up at 06:30 for work so why have you woke me up this early (other than to trawl Google+ of course). Madness, utter madness.

We always get great food from Romero's. We don't visit as often as we used to (something my waistline is grateful for) but when we are in Hyde we do pop in and collect.

Popped a couple of times over the last month while visiting my dad in Hyde. The Singapore Vermicelli is great, nice and spicy. Service and quality have been top notch on both visits and we will certainly be back when we are next in Hyde.

Another great meal in The Wharf and this is our second visit in less than a week. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

I visited this evening with a couple of friends and had a first rate meal. Service was excellent, just like the food. The restaurant has been rebranded as the Sanbucca Restaurant (updated submitted to Google) and moved to an upstairs location.

I visited Jamie's last night with friends for a birthday meal. This was a much better experience than our first visit. The food was top notch and service was great. Still underwhelmed by the Posh Chips though but the Funky Chips were really good, as was the rest of the meal. Somewhere I would happily visit again. Previous comments from March 2013 - "My wife and I visited this evening and I must say that although it's a stunning location I was rather underwhelmed by the food. It was OK, just nothing special. My wife, by comparison enjoyed her meal so maybe it's just me,."

We visited the Pearl yesterday with friends for an early evening meal. The food was first rate, as it has been on previous visits, but we all felt a little rushed. Considering it was only around 18:00 when we arrived and was mostly empty, there didn't seem to be any need to reclaim the table so quickly. I don't think this will put any of us off from future visits though.

A group of us stopped in the Bridge Tea Rooms recently while hunting for somewhere for breakfast while on a boating holiday on the Broads. We were treated to great service, fantastic food and at a really reasonable price too. Certainly a good spot for breakfast and I guess food later in the day too. We are certainly likely to be dropping in again the next time we are down on the broads.
