And it made me wonder, why don’t more computers come with a manual? Continue Reading
So, it’s been a while since I told you about what’s been going on at the House (my codename for my employer). There’s been lot’s happening, so I’ve written about as much as I could below. Continue Reading
So, I watched ‘My Great Big Adventure’ on ABC3 yesterday, which was about ‘tech-addiction’, and it got me thinking a bit. It was all pretty much things I’d heard before, but I never really thought about how it applied to me. You probably haven’t either. Continue Reading
