I'm back from overseas and loads of news, but no time now :-). We visited Athens, Kalamata, Glifada, Patra, and Kefallonia (the island where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed) while in Greece. Also, thanks to my friend Dirk, we visited The Hague, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam (completely rebuilt after the Second World War). In the UK, … Continue reading I’m back!
In approximately 18 hours, I will be jetting off to Europe on board an Olympic Airways Airbus, destination Athens. Which means that this is my last posting on this site for a while. I'd like to thank my ... no wait, that's my Oscar acceptance speech. Anyway, see you around.

Now I'm listening to Men Without Hats' Pop Goes The World, and I've just finished adding about a chapter to my book (I've been writing it since December 2001 and I'm almost on page 60! That's 19 000 words for the people who know about this sort of thing).
Yay! Only nine days to go and I'm off to Europe!
Did you know? It takes just over two hours to print 1324 pages of the Macromedia Flash 5 Bible across a fast Ethernet LAN to a Xerox Document Centre, back to back and two pages per sheet? And it's still warm when you take it out!
Has anyone ever heard of Asperger's Syndrome? Well it seems I've got it. It certainly explains a lot.

I've changed my MSN nickname to Jobless Joe to celebrate being without work again for the first time since I began in 1997 as a help desk technician.
