2015-09-16 : Pebble Steel Time Arrives

Pebble Time Steel vs Pebble Steel

I think that this is worth mentioning in its own news posting... I've just received my Pebble Time Steel which was a Kickstarter campaign that broke many records! I've been waiting [not very] patiently as I was an earlybird backer.

I think that you'll agree, that Pebble LCARS looks way better in colour!

I'm presently still waiting on my steel strap arriving (it'll come in a later shipment due to manufacturing problems), but side-by-side with my Pebble Steel it looks pretty cool.

2015-01-07 : Flashy Lights

Some major (or minor / irrelevant depending on your geekiness level) news... I now have all of the lights on my DSL WiFi router flashing again!

After just over two years of participating in the SamKnows / Ofcom monitoring survey to see how good FTTC broadband connections around the country are, I've now disconnected the "white box" and put all of my network connections back to how they used to be.

A lot of useful information gathered over that time - my downstream data rate has been pretty constant at about 27Mbits/s (although the 38Mbits/s that I got for the first few months was more to my liking) and upstream is hovering around 5Mbits/s.

Time has come again for me to grow a silly looking moustache in the name of men's health research. Do you want to donate to my sillyness?

Here are some of my previous moustaches:

2012-10-05 : Daddy v2.0 Upgrade Successfully Installed

Alasdair Cameron

On the 5th of October 2012, I became a Daddy for the second time when my wife Helen gave birth to our beautiful son Alasdair, weighing in at 8lb 15oz!

His big brother James is quite taken with the new arrival and tries to help out with nappy changing etc. I suspect he's just looking forward to him being old enough to beat up, like big brothers do!

Here's Alasdair at just a week old!
