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 […]

Jetlagged In Vegas

I spent all day yesterday travelling. The flights and everything else were fine, but by about 9 PM local time last night I was completely confused. It was 9pm in Vegas, but 5am in Ireland!

Washington DC In December

For the past couple of years I’ve made a point of taking a few days off in November or December. It’s an odd time of the year, but it works well for me. This year I’m in Washington DC and while it’s pretty cold out there, it’s not freezing, so I can move around quite […]

Roman Remains In Plovdiv Bulgaria

I was in Bulgaria for an event over the last few days. As usual the event was held in Sofia, but this time round our host organised a day trip to the city of Plovdiv. The city is built on the remains of its past, which includes both a relatively well preserved Roman theatre and […]
