Welcome …


ChampagneWhat the world needs now is another blog… ahh, here’s one. If you’re a designer, you might enjoy it. If you like movies, music, art, books, writing, travel… well you might find it occasionally interesting too. There’s nothing too personal here, and hopefully nothing too boring either. If you like, leave comments about posts using the ‘Comments’ links.

Talking about launching… the practice of breaking a bottle of wine over a ship’s bow was introduced by the British navy in the late 17th century as a cost saving measure. Previously the ships were baptized with a ‘standing cup’ of precious metal, which was then promptly thrown overboard. The rapid production of ships during the height of the British Empire put an end to that.

    What about an RSS/Atom feed?

    I’m looking into this now. My first priority is to get this site established, see it develop a personality of its own, see if enough people enjoy the occasional visit. I hate to implement technology just for the sake of it (especially since I’m not first and foremost a programmer and usually find it a little like pulling teeth). But if there are enough visitors, I’ll definitely add this convenience for them—I appreciate the suggestion.
