Satisfaction possible, sanity not guaranteed
Getting an OS on anon-x86 box isn't easy. If Android pre-installed isn't your thing The stages go: How the heck do I get a Linux image for this? OK how do I compile a kernel for this? Oh I need an x86 box to bootstrap this. Oh joy, installing a crosscompile...

C calling Lua. Lua calling C back
Last couple of nights have been getting Lua5.3 calls from C working and setting up a callback mechanism so that same Lua will call back into the calling C - as polling a script is slow. I chose Lua as I like it and it is commonly used as a scripting languag...

Enter Cruft Force 7
SWMBO is using a dual core PC and a dual core laptop. Neither bad, neither top of the range but all capable of running pristine Windows 7 installs. Pristine. Windows. After 3 years each of them is showing signs of decrepitude. The desktop - normally the las...

The Hilbert Bathroom Showroom
SWMBO and I are looking at outfitting two of the bathrooms in the 'new' house. Avocado will go out, beautiful tiles and white bathroom furniture will go in. SWMBO complains that unless she sees each piece of bathroom furniure with each possible tile combina...

The Reasons... they hurt
Latest estate agent madness: "You can't go to see the house that is for sale because you are selling a house" Cock biting fucktards.

There Exists a Requirement for Information
We lost the house bidding war. A nice place on Flower St that had sitting tenants who would leave in July. All good we thought. We had the highest bid after 6 days of to and fro with emotional spreadsheets and counting pennies down the back of the sofa. Bea...

Miltons Paradise Not Even There to Begin With
A little pano while we try to get SWMBOAW back to full health. Quick trip to Milton Country Park dodging dog shit and suicidal individuals. Someone had dumped a loaf of white sliced in the pool and it sat there unwanted by the birds. A new bench had appeare...

There Will Be Blood
I'm fascinated by how I can turn from a rational human being into a crazed maniac wishing all sorts of plagues on another unknown human being. A new house is needed. We can fit in this one. We being Myself, SWMBO and MiL. Add a two year old girl with a fier...

Authentic selection of food available as well as Anglo Chinese favourites so all catered for. Good quality cooking and decent service. Portions are well sized. Look to the specials board and you will certainly find something tasty and different from other restaurants.

Quiet - possibly the only cafe I found in my visit to San Francisco where I could hear myself think. Coffee pretty good - I need to acclimatise my palate to the heavier roast that SF natives seem to like. Pastries to die for - the Chocolate & Almond croissant was an entire meal in its own right - very flaky & crisp - gentle flavour.

A middle of the road, not too expensive underground barn serving pork products with beer. Nothing to write home about. Impersonal service but if not too busy the food arrives so fast it can be useful if you are in a hurry.

It may not be a perfect reproduction of an American Diner (it's a mix of East cost, West coast and Gulf state cuisine), but it's pretty darned good. Went with family (including a rather cantankerous 2 year old) and the staff were very pleasant and handled the difficulty of pram and all the junk that it entails. All the lunch staff were very young but were very mature & professional. Service was quick but not rushed. The sides are ENORMOUS. I repeat. ENORMOUS. I have never seen a single portion of onion rings looking like the a children’s stacking ring toy - it was that large. The sweet potato fries were excellent and the burger was very well constructed - not greasy and exceptionally tasty - well balanced flavours. Paying the bill was easy - no waiting, no over insistent attempts to get a dessert order.

Very lively Mexican themed restaurant. Food is European-Mexican - Mexican dishes with spices moderated to European taste (but you can order 'muy picante' to bring the chilli levels back up to normal at no extra cost). Portion sizes are satisfyingly large and are quite cheap. Starter to share is very good value. Wish there was more guacamole in the servings. Service was quite fast even for a group of 12.

Wanted to get away from the fried pork and potato dumpling and it didn't disappoint. Great starter of Fire Cup (a very filling bread bowl filled with goulash) would have been enough if I had been any less hungry. Main of fried Zander was excellent and is a must if you have eaten too much meat and need a different taste. Service was very good and the room is quiet - ideal to get away from the noise and relax with food and drink.
