Bendavis.me : My personal blog/portfolio/thinking space

It’s not exactly new but I’ve finally got around to moving onto my new myfirehost.com servers and freshened it up with a new theme. I’m still working on it but I’d love to get some feedback anyway. I’m still not sure about a few things, and…

The end for wordpress coders?

New Biffy Single “Cloud of Stink”

New Biffy single, presumably last one now before Only Revolutions is released – cannot wait! Until then, enjoy “Cloud of Stink”: good and heavy like Biffy should be, and the rest of Zane low’s set last night. I have to say Simon’s voice is a little…

The Charlie Browns of Computing

Always a sucker for a carefully thought out, well explained article on my favourite subject – Linux – I was pleased as punch to find this blog through a post from mesanna. Windows Users – The Charlie Browns of Computing Quite frankly this man should be…

Wow… the real world looks weird

Okay, I’ve spent the best part of the last 48 hours coding/designing constantly. Looking around the flat just seems weird to me now, nothing looks as it should. It’s similar to the effect you get while walking out of the cinema after watching something like Knowing…
