Brian's Blog

…one man's contribution to the Weeeeerly Wild World

About

me_april_2015Hi!

My name is Brian, I’m 30+ years old and this is my blog. It began as a website back in 1998 when I was at college studying IT and Graphic Design. It was originally called BMH Online and it quickly developed into a hobby that became a kind of log of my other interests and a place where I could rant about random topics.

I live on Anglesey in the UK and following on from my interests during my education I’m a self-employed computer technician, occasionally tinkering with websites for clients too, and I cycle all over the island in north Wales as part of my work.

The list of Categories over to the right (down below the list of Recent Posts) outlines the topics covered in this blog so far. In a nutshell, these are my interests. If you see something interesting then delve in and take a look!

Hobbies and interests can change over time and my recent blog posts, compared to my older ones (if I haven’t deleted them already), reflect this. In fact, as I began focussing on writing for my blog I realised writing was becoming a new hobby in itself. Sometimes my writing takes on a reflective or philosophical approach, and I talk about both mental and physical health and fitness at times, and bring together my views on living greener. I also enjoy how I find others with similar interest and stories to share when I publish a new post.

I also use my blog to highlight issues with websites, software, or services I use, and I sometimes put together information that I hope will help others. I am a keen participant in SETI@home (since 1999) so I use my blog to document my progress and experiences there as I occasionally build, upgrade, and repair computers over time.

A few years ago I stated taking a bit more time over the photographs I was taking and some of those pictures find their way here to compliment my articles. You can find more of my photographs at deviantART: http://bmhonline.deviantart.com

    Hi, This is not a reply to the above, but I could not find a ‘contact me’ tab. I am having the “We’ll need you to do this in order to continue using Google services.” problem with Firefox, but not when I use Google via Apple Safari. I am also a cynic, and my attitude is, if Google want me to ‘jump through hoops’ to continue using their services then I will happily use some other search engine. It’s their loss. Regards, Peter

      Hi Peter, thanks for your comment regarding my post [ https://bmhonline.wordpress.com/2015/10/21/before-you-continue-to-google ] – sorry you didn’t see the comments section at the end of the post, or maybe I should include a Contact Me tab… Indeed, each browser works independently so I too have had this Google issue with one browser and not another… and largely voted with my ‘feet’ too and opted to use ixquick / startpage.com instead.

        Thanks for the reply. I have now changed my firefox default search engine from Google to ixquick

    Beautiful shot of castle and moat—sadly clicking on it didn’t bring it up any larger. Bummer … as for browsers, I’ve been using Mac since early eighties but Apple has been rapidly getting away from ‘user friendly’ to stuff obviously designed by committees to impress other committees (and to hell with the blasted user~!).

    So I mix and match. Opera is still good (but on my Mac loads its files in a separate folder) (weird?).
