A New Website

Back in 2001, while I was still in midst of a degree that didn’t really teach me anything, I built the first version of roobottom.com on a crappy second-hand PC.

the Silly Old Sods

Katie’s uncle Bill is about to embark on a harebrained scheme to raise some cash for the RNLI. Together with his mate Dave (everyone’s got a mate Dave) they’ll be traveling the entire length of the English and Welsh coast using nothing but their free bus passes.

2008, in Review

2008 was a year of BIG changes for me: I left my full time position at Glaxstar for the wonderful (and most-times stressful) world of freelancing; I moved 200 miles south from a shared house ‘Cherrytree’ in Walsall, West Midlands to Littlehampton, West Sussex on the south coast; And I proposed to my lovely girlfriend Katie, to which, she said yes.

Glubble Family Edition

Since the beta launch last June the Glubble team have worked non-stop to create version 1.0 of the Glubble add-on for Firefox.
