Enjoying Regional Cuisine in Jordan

Last night I had dinner with a couple of friends in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Although I’m in Jordan the restaurant was Lebanese, but it’s still in the same region (more or less). The food was excellent and most of what we had we simply shared “family style”. One of the things that really […]

Exploring Jerash

I’m currently spending a couple of days in Amman, Jordan. This afternoon I’d planned on going to see a couple of the sites in the city itself, but when I hopped in a taxi the driver suggested taking me to Jerash instead. (I had been told by a friend that it was worth visiting) Jerash […]

IPv6 In Ireland 2015 Edition

I’ve been running IPv6 via a Sixxs tunnel at home for several years. When I first set it up I was using an old LinkSys with alternative firmware. It worked, but it had a tendency to break randomly. After a couple of years I got a FritzBox! which “just works”. Over the years the number […]

A Bit Of Nostalgia

Years ago I used to have a silver zippo lighter. It wasn’t actual silver, but some kind of bright metal. I’ve no idea what. I had it for years. The hinge broke at one point and somebody fixed it for me, as sending it back to Zippo for repairs wasn’t something that entered our minds […]

A Quiet Family Christmas

Christmas is one of the few times of the year when a lot of us wind down and disconnect (more or less). It’s a time for seeing family and friends and overindulging.. This year wasn’t any different and I’m delighted to say I’ve barely left the house for the last few days. Christmas dinner was […]
