Snoochie Boochies!

Well it's been almost a year since the last one of these so lets start with a recap. UK World tour was a resounding success. Lands End to John O'Groats and back in 4 days, with a few nights of comedy camping thrown in for good measure. The £250 GPX-750 made it with only a few small issues... like the chain expanding so much that it cut through the left front foot peg meaning I had to ride back from Birmingham with one leg on the rear set. I have a load of footage that I really should combine into video... really, and maybe one day I will.

Speaking of video's we threw out like 5 Vidal Baboon videos since the last update and although no one really watches them I think we're big in Poland and Argentina. We've finally settled on the Comedy Horror Punk genre of which I think we're the only hit on Google. To be honest I'm not entirely sure if that's a good or a bad thing.

We did a fest at Chateux-de-Pomax in Rotterdam, Cheeseland. It was a bloody brilliant long weekend consisting of some crazy Dutch people, Palm lager and Omen getting dumbells dropped on him... classic! Oh and a deep and meaningful discussion of top banana. The trip there and back was really good, 660 miles on the Trumpet with the rest of lads in Mare's Mini and Voo's Bravo. Nothing beats nuttering it through northern France, with the big British triple screaming 'Non!' and those european bastards! It brings a tear to eye.

I'm spending a lot of time working with FreeBSD's jails at the moment and it's definitely a very slick solution to partitioning machines. I definitely prefer it to chroots and it all feels a lot more unified and manageable compared to fully virtualised machines. Still the proof is in the pudding and we'll see how it feels in a production environment.

Other than that I'm all about the home improvements at the moment... doing a little bit of DIY myself (EPIC FAIL) and getting some builders in. I think Socrates said it best 'True wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing' and as far as any kind of building work and my involvement is concerned that's absolutely true.
