Hello Neighbour

If you are on this site after I dropped a flyer through your door then… Hi! 🙂

As you can see, this site hasn’t been updated in quite some time. Don’t hold it against me.

Thank you for reading my leaflet and I look forward to hearing from you.


Virgin Media or Sky?

Recently a friend asked me if I would recommend Virgin Media.  I gave him a honest reply as I have been a customer for quite a while but I am quite proud of the final paragraph…

IMHO the Virgin TiVo box blows the pants of Sky+ but most of all…

Sky is run by Rupert Murdoch, someone so corrupt that he allowed staff to hack into the phones of missing school children and then paid them millions to keep quiet about it.

Virgin is run by Richard Branson who Kite surfs to work where he tries to make it cheaper for people to go into space and easier for people to donate money to charity.

Virgin Money Press Junket

Back in December 2011 the Virgin Group did a very obscure blog post asking for bloggers, tweeters and YouTubers. Needing a good excuse to get out the (home) office nowadays I figured an evening out would be nice.

Yes, I know this is free publicity for them but hey, if I’m going to publicise any large corporation then I can’t think of anyone better than Virgin (comments in the box below please)! Virgin Money Giving were very helpful to us when organising the Goodwood Roller Marathon.

Anyway, the evening was very nice, free soup, got to say hello to Richard Branson and treated to a 270 degree projection on three sides of a courtyard building. Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to move back far enough to get it all in frame and had to shoot in portrait which isn’t ideal but you get the idea :-p

You can see the professionally shot video (from across the street I may add) here.

Maybe still not as good as the Gadget Show projection though, that had more 3D 😉

River of Life 2011

On the evening of Tuesday 21st June 2011 people place garlands into the river Wey in Guildford to celebrate the summer solstice.

N.B. This is a backdated post as I take some of the things I have been doing elsewhere on the interwebs and add them to this site 🙂
