It's been a while.
We had the builders in and were decorating etc - what can I say? I'm lazy..!
Geek-wise, life has developed a bit.
I now have a Drobo unit hooked up to my Mac, running two 1Tb drives. It's very good and I like it a lot. Getting it set up took a few days of minor issu (read the entire post)...

OK. It has been raining for at least 40 days and 40 nights now - I'm sure of it!
