It's just a show home isn't it.  I'm guessing there's an office for the housebuilder set up in the garage, so the landscaping it there just to make it look more attractive from the outside for visitors.

+Richard Olpin how does having a massive landscaping fail make it look good? to me it makes me think that the builders clearly were not thinking... what other things have they fucked up inside.

Black Friday is basically just an excuse for retailers to charge ‘moron tax' isn’t it? 

Hey proles! Buy a load of tat we can't shift at 20% off a price we artificially inflated by 50%, just because the we told the tabloids to make you do it!

21st century natural selection..

So Fitbit decide to go for the massive 'shoot themselves in the foot' option then, and in one fell swoop pissed off all their Apple owning users.  *Slow hand clap*. Really well done chaps. No, seriously, well done.

Recommendations on alternative discrete trackers that plan to work with HealthKit then gang?

So you'd imagine they'd still at least like to keep some of their existing users though eh?  As it stands now I've spent half my day evaluating alternatives, and from their forums I'm far from alone..

Yet another +westerndigital external drive dead. Thankfully only a 2nd backup drive so nothing lost, but still pissed off that EVERY Western Digital drive I’ve owned has failed. This last one only lasted 18 months!

So, suggestions on a postcard please for reliable external drives. Anything other than #westerndigital   #fail   #harddrive

Switched on X-Factor long enough to watch my friend Chloe-Jasmine on there, then turned it off again.  Fuck knows how people manage to watch that shite every week!

So I see people are still prattling on about how it's possible to bend an iPhone 6 so they must be the worst thing ever (like no other large phone ever bent before!) / how <insertrandomphonehere> did something first etc.  

Seriously, why?  What does it really matter? Why do people feel the need to get so uppity about someone else's preferred bit of tech? 

One thing I've always though when anyone feels the need to criticise someone else for their decisions, especially those which don't affect others in any way whatsoever is this: 

If someone is trying to put you down, it's only because they feel threatened, that you're already above them, they're being left behind so they want to pull you back down to your level.

Those kind of people really don't deserve your energy.  Please don't feed the trolls!

Todays thought for the day was inspired by hearing yet another tedious 'fnar fnar' type smutty comment from a 'friend' who'd seen some of my boudoir and nude photography.

Simply put, photographers and models understand the difference between a nude model and an otherwise naked body. 

There is nothing more pure than someone who's comfortable in their own skin. To the creative eye, a nude model is wearing a perfectly fitted costume.

Story
Tagline
I'm a very reasonable man. Once.
Introduction
I was born and raised in Dursley where I've lived all my life. Having graduated in Computer Science I worked for 12 years as a software engineer in industrial automation before seeing the error if my ways about 10 years ago.

Since then I've been my own boss, firstly running my martial arts school and also more recently I've been developing a photography and photographic training business too.
Bragging rights
Got out of the rat race 10 years ago to be my own boss. Never looked back.
