Obligatory Photobooth Image

So I got myself one of those shiny new MacBook Pro laptops. Here's the obligatory first Photobooth image, that one must post to one’s blog. It was taken early this morning after I got up early to play-with-new-gadget – hence the dressing gown and stubble.

London Things

London Things

Having moved house, I have a new route to work that includes a 25 minute walk. I have the option of taking a tube for two stops instead but much prefer to walk. Here are a some of the things I passed on my way in today:

Buckingham Palace
The Ritz Hotel
A Rolls Royce showroom
A man sleeping in the doorway of New Bond Street jewelers
A man dressed as a pirate

Along with the bobby on the beat, the black taxis, the red telephone box, the pigeons and the icy drizzle it couldn't really be any more stereotypically London.

Back in SE5

I love it how, when you move house, and it's going to take a few weeks to get a net connection set up, you usually find a handy wireless network nicely within range, and with an equally handy lack of security on it. Bonus...

I've finally got somewhere to live, and I moved in tonight. My very own (OK, rented) batchelor pad, back in Camberwell. Hurrah!

Now there's just the small matter of buying some furniture, getting some more things from my old place and setting it all up to deal with. That's my mission for the weekend.

But right now it's time to collapse.

Someone at work just sent this around - it's one of those annoyingly simple ideas: a game where you score points by getting other people to join via your unique invite.

This Guardian article is worth a read.

If you're interested, I urge you to join *cough* using this invite:

New Flickr Features

At long last, Flickr have added the much-requested sets of sets feature. And they've called it Collections. They've also added the ability for members to customise their homepage - you get the choice of showing small or medium photos, and also sets, collections or neither.

I've quickly thrown together some collections to try it out. I'll swap a lot of it around once I've given it more thought.

I like this update especially because I use Flickr for casual cameraphone / pub / night out / holiday photos as well as for more serious photography, and this allows me to further separate and organise the two.

Good stuff!

Moving Out

Moving out my flat in Clapham. Moving to... limbo. Following this week’s frustratingly bad news regarding the flat I had been trying to buy, I am now homeless. So a big THANKS must go to the vendor who messed the whole thing up after six whole months, by having it reposessed on the day we were due to complete. Fantastic. Really great. God, that’s annoying.

So now I’m staying at my girlfriend’s place, my belongings in randomly packed boxes and bin liners. And I’m writing this on my laptop using someone else’s unsecured wireless network. What I should really be doing is searching the web for a place to rent, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now.
