If It's Monday We're Down The Bay

3 months ago, for day 355 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Three months ago I wrote about my crazy Hotel schedule during my Christmas trip back to the UK. One of the stops along the way after Burton-upon-Trent is Liverpool to vist the British Music Experience and see an old colleague. While planning when we would meet for Breakfast and the...


Wonky F6 (Pt 2/2)

3 months ago, for day 354 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

In Part 1 I described how I spilled a drink on my keyboard, the fact that the up arrow key now no longer worked as it should I was hopeful that the keyboard would dry out and the up arrow key would stop triggering the F6 key. Meanwhile I...


Wonky F6 (Pt 1/2)

3 months ago, for day 353 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Today I did something that I do every few years. I knocked over a can of something spilling a bunch of it on my external keyboard. A quick mop up exercise ensued for damage control. I lost a few pages of my yellow pad (which doubles as a mouse mat),...


The Best Made Plans of Money.

3 months ago, for day 352 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Previously in my updates about losing things, this morning I remembered I had a Revolut card that I meant to bring on this UK trip. I have a different UK bank account and associated multi-currency debit card, however I was also interested in giving my Revolut card a go. Note:...


Super Tidy

One evening while wandering around Cardiff looking for food I came across "The Grazing Shed which sells burgers and they were (apparently) voted #1 in Wales. It is now my regular haunt whenever I'm back in town I headed there for lunch. They are probably the best burger in Wales...


Lost

I’ve lost my gloves and I’m more than slightly annoyed and definitely not gruntled at all. My wife is pretty certain that they’ll turn up in some odd place in the house where I was when I took them off and distractedly put them down. I hope she is right,...


Well knock me down with a feather

Back on day 317 (roughly four weeks ago) I had a rant about things Apple had done when they split iTunes into the Music and TV applications. I lamented the lost of these features. Technically you could call them regressions of functionality although it has become obvious that as the...


Forcing it

3 months ago, for day 344 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

I went for a walk this evening, not because I wanted to but because I needed to. Since I came down with Flu last Saturday (8 days ago) I haven't been in the mood to do any exercise whatsoever. A couple of trips to the shops involved me getting in...


Three Hundred & Forty Three

4 months ago, for day 343 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

That's the number of posts I have written. Surprised myself and to be honest things are really starting to drag. I'll finish out the year as I made a promise to myself that I would. This has been my project for 2019 in the same uploading a photograph everyday was...

At this time of year Spotify created wrapped 2019, the list of the top songs you have listened to. Spotify generates this for you. You have to wonder why Apple doesn't do something similar. Apple does personally curated playlists too and updates them weekly, just like Spotify. It's a way...
