Saving Money On Quality Kitchenware Via eBay

Over the past few years I’ve spent more and more time in the kitchen and less and less time with the microwave. Ok, that sounds worse than it actually is 🙂 I like cooking, but I also like having nice things to cook and serve food with. Buying Le Creuset saucepans new costs a fortune, […]

Montenegro From The Air

I’ve been to Montenegro several times over the last few years and I’m always struck by the beauty of the place. This video does a good job of capturing some of it: Unfortunately there aren’t any direct flights from Ireland, but it’s relatively easy to get there via Dubrovnik, London or Paris.

Some Portland Impressions

I was in Portland, Oregon last week for the cPanel conference. I was there to deliver a keynote on Wednesday morning, so I had a bit of time in the evenings to catch up with friends in the area. I’d never been to Portland before, though I’d always heard good things about it. I probably […]

Sorting Disk Usage By Size On Linux

More of a reminder for myself than anything else .. since I’ve got a terrible memory! If you want to check disk space usage from the command line you can use the “du” command. But if you want to check a large number of directories for usage and sort them so that you can see […]

La Bella Sicilia! [Video]

I love Sicily. It’s such an incredibly beautiful place. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below which was produced by a travel agency in the UK: Sicily has an incredibly rich and interesting history. Pretty much every civilisation that passed through Europe made their mark on Sicily and you can see that in the […]

Game Of Thrones For Beginners

Game of Thrones aka GOT. Unless you’ve been living under a stone for the last couple of years, then you either watch it or are surrounded by people who do. HBO got Samuel L Jackson to narrate a “beginner’s guide” to the series and it’s both NSFW and hilarious. In less than 8 minutes Jackson […]
