DNS Issues

My name server host has been down this afternoon.  I was trying a small unknown company who had four servers around the world, but were based in Russia.  I’ve come back to good old blighty, in the mean time.

Hello world!

Here we are again. Another month, another site redesign.

I’ve decided to try good old WordPress once more. I found a website created in WP with one of these lovely grid themes. It looked fantastic, and I hope I can make mine look pretty good too.

I did try google sites, I think I gave it a good shot but there was one issue which I couldn’t get round.

COMM – The Tangent

I was pleased as punch recently to have recieved my copy of ‘COMM’ by The Tangent through the front door. All of the albums released by the band been fantastic, the sixth studio album however holds a special little place in my heart.

Track four “The Tech Support Guy” tells the story of a typical day in the life of me! Although there are undoubtably harder jobs in the world, the song tries to explain how IT support are often thought to be the scourge of any organisation, when we’re all just men and women trying to do a good job. Have you ever rung your technical support department to congratulate them that everything is working perfectly? I bet you haven’t.

Why not go buy the track on Amazon or iTunes? Even better, toddle over to thetangent.org and buy the CD direct. I *will* love you forever.
