Do you ever feel inundated by the web etc? I do. I feel like I'm losing my grip on what matters and what does not. What can be done about this dilemma? The age of distraction is becoming overwhelming!

I do - I make lists of lists sometimes. Have just found mindmup a great online mind mapping tool today. Nice!

Whilst we've been in Malta I have been tinkering with a mobile app project of mine that is backed by +Firebase and built with +Ionic

It's an app for recording places of interest on a map. So looking at where I can take it next.

Happy Latte!

Lovely location. An old airfield used in the war that has been converted to a crafts village. They make pottery, glass products and many other things.

Not too bad - I would recommend The Palace Hotel in Sliema which isn't bad for pricing but there may be cheaper options, you can hire an apartment for around £1000 per week. Eating out is very reasonable as it ranges between 8 and 30 euros per person, depending on whether you are going for a nice and easy pizza or something more along the lines of a 3 course meal.

We have been twice in quick succession, staying at the Palace in Sliema and catching buses around the island which costs 18 euros for a weekly ticket each. There are ferries from Sliema to nearby Valletta which are about the same sort of price.

I would highly recommend getting a heritage pass for visiting the neolithic temples, cathedrals, museums and art galleries. There are many and it costs about 30 euros each I think it was.

Great video - I took my new Phantom for a spin yesterday and so far so awesome! I fitted the gimbal with my Hero 4 attached and shot at 1080, really pleased with the results. I have also got some other kit to set up including my field monitor, same as you've got. Shall wait until the weekend before I do that. I was really impressed with the video I captured just by flying!! I was too engaged with that and the fact the video came out pretty good was a bonus!!!

I shall indeed. Got a head full of ideas of places to take it around the South of England. I liked your tip on the ND grad filter, I may invest in one of those.

Tagline
Javascript Developer (AngularJS), technologist, gardener, photographer (ex-press), writer, husband/step-dad, amateur naturalist, transplantee, freelancer, director of own company, loves to cycle and explore the world outside the office!
Introduction
Freelancer in the world of web and photography.

Nick works for himself through his company Nick Lewis Ltd which specialises in web technology and photography. He has worked for a variety of big companies over the years including Zurich Financial Services, Transport for London and Estee Lauder to name a few.

Nick now predominantly undertakes contracts with companies that last anywhere between 2 months or an entire year at a time. His technical skills are very broad as he loves to learn new things all of the time. If you follow his ramblings here on Google, you'll get a better idea of what appeals to him at any given point in time.

Techy skills include:

  • Javascript - jquery, backbone, angular, knockout
  • MongoDB
  • ASP.NET & C#
  • JQuery
  • SQL
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • XML
  • Google Maps
  • CMS - Such as Umbraco and Drupal
  • PHP
  • Windows Azure
  • Amazon AWS
  • Heroku
Now all of that stuff is very very technical and goes over many people's heads but Nick loves it and gets very excited to meet other people who do.

Nick is also a photographer and did once work for a celebrity based photography agency in London, called Filmmagic. In fact he also worked with Retna and UPPA at times. He met a lot of famous people as a result but then chose to give it up in order to focus on things that are more realistic in the business sense. Nick now only supplies Alamy with photos taken on his travels.

If you ever need someone to take care of your web needs. Give Nick a shout.

Its weird writing this in the third person!!!

Third time we had been and the food was excellent. Our waitresses were very jovial and friendly too. We all had roast beef, strangely for the warm day that it was! Beef was beautiful!

We have eaten here probably 4 times now. Yes, that is because we really like it. The food is all fresh and innovative. If you go in the Autumn months, you will be sure to find some great game dishes on the menu, especially Venison. Highly recommended!

A little while back Fiona Phillips the TV presenter took over. We had been there before that happened and went back about a month ago. It is still as good as it was the first time and we had a stunning roast beef. In fact we even spotted Fiona, her husband and son there. They had stopped by to wish one of the regulars (we assumed) a very happy birthday.

Fish great and their chips are nice and fluffy if that makes sense. I often find chippies chips a bit too dry.

My wife and I ate there ages ago and we keep meaning to go back because it was very nice. We were a little worried as it was quiet but that may have been the time of the year, month or whatever. Our waiter was very good and the food was very much reminiscent of the dishes we had whilst in Sorrento or anywhere around the Bay of Naples region. We both had a veal dish of some description..... must go back soon.
