Normal Service has been resumed!


Ahoy – apologies for the unannounced outage, but my hard drive collapsed into a steaming heap after Asus decided up update some of their software and utterly ruin the file structure on my laptop. Basically that meant that I couldn’t even start the damn machine up, or if it did get to the logon screen, the mouse wouldn’t move.

One total OS reinstall and complete system rebuild later, I’m back up and going  (well, almost). I’m a bit of a nerd, so I was backed up to the hind teeth – I highly recommend zovo for this, up to half a terabyte of storage for free with the right signup coupon, and it’s done the job brilliantly.

Three on a Thursday, the Ctrl:Alt:TheBeat show and a massive backlog of reviews with soon be unleashed.

I’m BACK baby!
