Everything old is new again

Sleepy robMarch 22nd will mark ten years since I started my blog. By way of celebration, I have been reviewing my old blog posts, going right back to the very earliest entries.

In the intervening decade, a lot has happened and many things have changed, in the world at large and with me and my life situation. Both are reflected in the blog to a certain extent.

There are certain ever-present themes, however: my obsession with computers, slightly ranty political posts, enthusiasm for railways, trips out and about, that sort of thing.

Looking back at the old entries, some of them are downright cringeworthy. In spite of that, the trip down memory lane has been fun.

Over the next few days I will be looking back and posting some retrospective thoughts here. I hope you find them amusing. In the meantime, enjoy the suitably retro design, which is based on the way the site appeared when it first launched back in 2003.

    I’ve always wondered what your desk at work looked like.

    Ian: that’s my (old) desk at home. My desk at work has a pillow.

    Seb: You missed the 15 year anniversary – it was 31st August 2012. The CD-R containing the FABland files has gone missing. If I find it (and it’s still readable) I’ll do something.
