I'm still around

Well, it's been 5 months (and 2 days) since my last confession blog entry. Long enough. Sure, I seem to have gained in certain other areas, but my writing has REALLY suffered, so I'd better start making time to look after this here blog.

Anyway, there's not a great deal to tell at the mo: I'm in the process of downloading CentOS 5.1 so I can build a new server at work (I'd much prefer to use Fedora, but with the demise of the Fedora Legacy project it's been decided that we'd be better off with a more stable distro).

I'm reading (if you can call it reading) Perl for web site management by John Callender (and yes, I know it's ancient (2002), but then all IT-related books are obsolete before they make it onto bookshop shelves! Anyway, I find it a good idea to look through these sort of books to pick up tools and ideas I can use later on). I'm also rereading Koko by Peter Straub and TAZ by Hakim Bey. Just for fun.

I've noticed recently (well, some time ago) that my reading habits have changed since I moved (just on a year and a half ago): When I had to commute for a good 3-or-so hours every day, I was getting through books at a rate of 2 to 3 per week. Now I read a book every 2 or 3 weeks. I don't think this was a good thing.

Anyway, more soon (I hope!).

Omigosh! A post! (Pot Kettle, I know).

I know what you mean about finding time to read. I'm finding it hard to find a good chunk of time to sit down and read instead of just a few minutes here and there. I'm currently ploughing through the third book in John Birmingham's 'Weapons of Choice' trilogy. It's taken ages to get through, but it's a fascinating read.
