“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Yes, this is late again, and yes, I’m still on vacation, and yes, my schedule is not entirely my own. Being in Russia, it is difficult – and sometimes impossible – to access Western websites easily. Instagram and Twitter are not that difficult to...

Yes, I know, this week’s “Monday” browser killer is actually appearing on a Wednesday – so maybe we should think of this as the “hump-day special”. Hump ‘em if you got ‘em, boys – consensually, obviously. The late publication has to do with the fact that I am very...

Ah, the return of Monday – right when we’d all gotten used to the long weekend. (Fortunately, for me, at least, it is still a day off today – and I probably ought to be doing something better with my time than putting together this gigantiferous pile...

Well, there goes the weekend, again. On the minus side, it was, of course, WAY too damn short. On the plus side, spring is DEFINITELY here, and that is my absolute favourite season of the year. It is a time of renewal and growth, where the days are getting longer, the...

Well, it’s Monday again, and honestly, after just a few hours of this crap, I’m DONE for the day. It is nothing particularly bad, but when you have dreary weather, colleagues who can’t get their shit together, and looming project deadlines, it all...

Well, it took quite a bit longer than usual, but today’s Great Mondaydact Browser Killer is finally up. The delay has to do with two simple facts. First, these things are a BITCH to put together, and second, things are getting awfully busy as we get closer to...

Well, yet again, that weekend zipped by WAY too damn fast, and yet again, we find ourselves confronted by the horrors of Monday. At least I was able to catch up on some much-needed R&R over the weekend, given Friday was literally back-to-back-to-back meetings for...

This day sure has a habit of sneaking up on us, eh? There I was on Friday night, enjoying the end of the week and the possibility of getting some actual proper rack-time over the weekend, and then, BAM! – it was all over. Now I am back at work doing…...

Oh FFS it’s Monday again. Like a bad rash, or a bad penny, it keeps showing up. The weekend zipped by far too quickly – not least because I spent quite a lot of it snuffling like a congested elephant, which in fairness is actually a pretty accurate...
