Sad news :(
James Horner, the Hollywood composer who wrote the score for the Oscar-winning film hit Titanic, dies in a plane crash in California.

Snort... Just started listening to the A Beautiful Mind soundtrack, which I hadn't heard before. It's a little more subtle, but the traditional four notes are there (at about 7 seconds into the first track)!

I know this has been around for a while, but if you're a Game of Thrones fan this is essential viewing.

Yup. The whole Red Nose Day show wasn't especially good. (David Duchovny sucked as a presenter - almost totally lifeless delivery) but this part was definitely one of the highlights.

How is it I have managed to produce a child who prefers the Demi Lovato version of "Let it Go" to the Idina Menzel one?!

And please excuse the earlier brain fart. What I earlier referred to as a bridge is a) probably more accurately referred to as a "B section", and b) only instrumental for about 5 bars! My only excuse would be a lack of pre-comment coffee. ;-)

Worth reading if you're a blogger who reviews or promotes products or events. If you were paid to write about something, or got it for free, you must disclose that fact.
Businesses are ambushing rivals with fake reviews and customers are reportedly using the threat of online criticism to win discounts, research finds.

Interesting news for podcasters - SoundCloud has finally opened its podcasting features to everyone, after having had them in beta for years!

Very interesting comparison of two microphones - I'm going to have to get myself one of those Speedlinks!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums, the Mums-to-be and those who are still waiting to become a Mum.

Special hugs to those with a Mum-shaped hole in their life, and those Mums whose children left too soon.

You are all amazing. You are all changing the world...

Story
Tagline
Geeky wife, mother, podcaster and blogger
Introduction
Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I'm Ruth, sometimes known as Rufus, Artoo or geekmummy. I'm a wife to one, mother of two (my daughter was born in 2007 and my son joined the family in 2010), and I try to juggle working part time in an office with running the home and looking after the family.

Then in my spare time I produce a weekly podcast with my husband called Parental Geekery. And I write my geekmummy blog.

I'm a tech geek, and I am particularly interested in how technology can be used within families. I play World of Warcraft, but don't get as much time to play as I'd like. I love cats and I enjoy amateur dramatics.
