This page shows what I was doing around this time of year in years gone by. It works because I store a local copy of all tweets, runs, photos and other elements of my life that I track on this blog.

  • Cleaned out my drawer. Feels so much nicer now I can find stuff :) 18:06

  • @AlexNewbury BT are unlimited, but if you surpass 100Gb for three consecutive months they drop your speed to 200kbps. Trust me, it's hell. 22:30
  • @AlexNewbury we must be on older regs then because we still get emails every now and then :/ 22:44

  • Fireworks + XML = dead easy. InDesign + XML = FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU!!! 15:07
  • @joe_turner the problem seems to be I need one PDF with multiple styled elements within. Can make multiple PDFs with single elements fine :( 15:47
