Looking at the picture of the man and the woman you could be forgiven for thinking the post was maybe going to be about Valentines and kinky bondage of some sorts. Read the poem however and hopefully it will become a bit clearer.
When I started out in webdesign “professionally” (I’ll use that term loosely as I started without any qualifications in webdesign) around 10+ years ago I was young and very much naive. I … I … I did things for money I’m not proud of … yes I did websites for 20quid and a 6pack of red bull ( a reference to my post on what to charge for...

So I’ve been pretty quiet over the last while on the blog. Well I’ve been busy … love / life / lust and the eternal search for the perfect donut as always. Well one of the projects I’ve been working on with Blacknight recently is Get Personal With .Me. It has been a fun project to work on why not head over and see if your name is available?

Time flys when you’re having fun. It also seems to fly when you’re really busy. Its now over 2 years since I registered the domain name gluas on behalf of the GLUAS working group. Points of contact change and people come and go within groups so I was contacted a while back to start making a few updates on the system. Of course given the power I’d like to do a redesign of the site but thats something for another day.
I originally created the logo for GLUAS and I have to admit its one of my favourite logos I’ve created to date.
Integrating the track lines so to speak to the base...
