It's been a long day today. This picture was taken at 5.30am on Cardiff Central station, and I'm blogging this at gone 7pm from the train on the way home.
It's been a good day though, useful seminar with our system supplier followed by a nice (free) lunch and then some networking with other clients.
That's it now for a couple of weeks. In the next few days we're off on hols somewhere sunny and warm, and I can't wait.
Posts will be infrequent probably to the point of non-existant for the duration.
See you soon...
I'm currently on a T-Mobile contract. It's one of their "Flext" plans which gives me an allowance of £34 monthly on any mixture of voice or texts, but costs me £22 (actually it's only £17 because I have a £5 monthly discount as a "valued user". I also use their unlimited Web 'n Walk plan, another £6.38 a month (all costs here exclude VAT) bringing me to a total of £28.38 (exc the discount) a month. Or £340.56 a year. Or £510.84 over 18 months.
An iPhone 8G version would cost me £99. Let's ignore that for the moment.
The cheapest contract I could get is £30 a month (£360 a year or £540 over 18 months) - more than my T-Mob contract and although that's unlimited data acces it's actually a stingy 75 mins talk and 125 texts. Like for like I can get another 32 mins or 65 texts out of my current T-Mob contact whilst paying less than I would on 02.
If 02 were to lower their tariff a bit, I'd be there like a shot.

Solitaire is the first option, but rather than giving you just the usual Klondike or Yukon, you get 17 different games. Well not really. Three are Spider (Easy, Medium & Hard) and two are Klondike (draw 1 or draw 3), but that's still a decent number of games available, and they all play nicely.
Next up is Frozen Bubble, a game where as far as I can tell, the object is to shoot coloured bubbles at other bubbles until you clear the screen.
Crack Attack is the next offering, which is a block puzzle type game.
Penguin Racer is one the younger kids will love. If you've played Happy Feet on any of the various handheld consoles, this is similar.
Sudoko doesn't need any introduction, and should satisfy anyone who like doing these. There are a few game options in here to vary things slightly too.
Another one for the younger audience is Potato Guy, where the object is to create a Mr Potato Head type character using a range of differing facial and bodily characteristics.
Finally, Ltris is a Linux variation of the timeless Tetris.
So overall out of the box there's a variation of games for the younger audience, and some that will satisfy older users.
Blimey. What sort of shops does he visit?
