Man I've got a cranky dial up connection from home... yeeowch. Can't upgrade for reasons I won't attempt to go into. Anyway - I now dial in via UK rather than the virgin connection I had before. Not only does it seem faster... but the money goes towards supporting something decent.

Voidspace is badly in need of an overhaul. I thought that while I was at it I could learn to use CSS for page layout rather than the TABLEs I've been working with. I've found a webpage that makes it sound *really* easy to learn... CSS Page Layout - great... hopefully will happen soon. Voidspace might shrink - but it will be easier to maintain and more "relevant" - whatever that may mean.

I'm doing a lot of writing at the moment. First I'm now employed one day a week by JACT - Jesus Centre. This means I've been writing policies and guides and evalluation systems and all sorts of horrible stuff in the rush to get open. Also Pyzine, the only commercial python magazine, might publish an article of mine... Cool...

Hmm.. Voidspace might get python CGI capability soon as well - I'm haggling with the folk who run my server.

It's been a while since I've blogged... end of June in fact....

We're having an Indian summer apparently - which makes up for the awful English one we've had. Blinkin' hot in our office anyway.

Voidspace got hacked - someone replaced the front page with some greetz and graphics.... I didn't notice for over a month - oops !! Most people jump in via google to 'somewhere in the middle', very few people use the front door. I've had problems with copyright again and had to remove a couple of articles *sigh*.

To be honest voidspace is in need of a revamp !! - I need to refocus on my own stuff.... right up some of my recent spiritual musings and 'heavily rationalise' everything else - all I need is the time to do it.

Lot's of changes up ahead in my life - been married for a year now, as some of you may know I live in a community setting. One of our key guys is moving to a community house up the road, due to a 'dire situation' there... Which means all change for us - we're a small team - but good folk and this is a bit of a blow really. But oh well. Oh and one of the guys I most respect in the world is really struggling - which is an odd feeling.

Lots and lots and lots of techie stuff.... (almost all python) which I may report on later.
