The Internet Radio Forum

Living as an Englishman abroad, it's nice to have those reminders of old Blighty.

McVitie's Digestives, Taylor's Yorkshire Gold, Private Eye and the Guardian crossword ...

... and, of course, the BBC.

Isn't the interweb a wonderful thing? Now, via the wonder of internet radio, it's possible to listen to BBC Radio 5Live and hear about lane closures on the M32 or an incident on the Circle Line.

Anyway, as I've mentioned before, I have two internet radios, a Noxon iRadio - using the vTuner portal - and a Sangean WFR-20 - using the Reciva portal. Both have been good acquisitions.

However, finding a place to discuss internet radio problems is difficult. So I've started a forum - The Internet Radio Forum - - to make a start at focusing online discussion and problem solving.

It's very small, at the moment, but I hope in time it will grow. If you're interested, please sign up.

Stuff : 23.11.2008

Okay ... catch up time ...

What a good summer season I had on the bike. I rode maybe 150 miles/week at times, and completed two major community rides - The 5 Boro Bike Tour and The Twin Lights Ride.

Now it's a bit more difficult to motivate. Today the morning temperature was -4C and is hovering at 0C at 11.00 am. I am not a cold weather person ...

So I think I'm going to consider getting the trainer out in the basement. I'm not keen on clamping the Giant into the rack, but I think I'll put a trainer tyre on the back of my mountain bike and try that.

It's a bit early for New Year Resolutions, but I'll try to stay up-to-date.

Be seein' ya!


August - November 2008 : Stuff

Whoa!!!! What a gap!!!

I mean, it's not as if a lot hasn't happened; a part-time job, visitors from the UK, trip to the UK.

So, here I am ... back on the block, as it were ...

Let's get going again.
