Dear blog,

Welcome back! we've missed you!

I got married, moved to london (not sure how long you've been missing!). Started up in the techpond live facebook discussion, then left as it was very intensive!

Define london. We talking zone 1 or zone 6? Happy to meet for a beer!

Dear Blog,

Out of interest Steff, how do you keep in touch with friends if you don't use social media? Obviously it's far from the only way although admittedly I do find it handy.

Dear Blog,

I have been trying to mod Robbie's GBA to add backlight but it seems I need a screen from a GBA SP. Does anyone have a SP in too bad shape that they want to donate it? I just need its screen :)

Dear blog

Wow Steff, 4 kids! You need to leave your poor wife alone!

Grats on the new one though Steff and grats on the wedding Ras. You got any plans for a mini-ras any time soon?

No FB account any more - just use email and texts. Plus my wife does most of the social organising as we have largely the same friendship group.

Flat is in Shepherds Bush, right on the boundary between zone 2&3

Dear Blog,

Back from a weekend at Reading Festival. Friday was fun. Saturday got pretty drunk at one stage and was very fun! Sunday was more chilled but still fun. Metallica on Sat were immense! I'm not a massive 'tallica fan but they put on a great show. Limp Bizkit on Fri night were excellent too. Going from them in the NME/Radio 1 tent to Mumford & Sons on the main stage was boring so left after about 15 minutes. Libertines on Sun were also pretty average in my opinion. Anyway, back to work tomorrow. Need an early night...

Yep, takes a little while to get used to but is nice when you do!

Will do. No week nights have been done before so don't worry there - some of us don't live in London! Another meet soon would be cool but I'm not around next weekend. With calendars etc maybe a second year anniversary in Nov? Can carry this convo on in the meet thread.

Dear Blog,

I think the new forum looks great and works really well, Steff did a fantastic job with it. The mobile view in particular is a huge improvement over the last one which of course didn't have any mobile optimisation at all.

Dear Blog,

Not that we've had much of a summer but there's been quite a dip in temperature today, felt noticeable chillier on the way to work and right now.

Dear blog,

What miserable weather. I was going to cycle around London today doing touristy things but I don't really feel like doing anything.... Will go to Judo in an hour and see if that perks me up any...
