Genesis concert

I went to the Genesis concert at Twickenham last night and it was fantastic. I like live music and to hear my favourite band playing was just the best. It was a belated 40th birthday present. Phil has to take the biscuit when it comes to energy. All the others had breaks, but he was non-stop. They had a good mixture of old and new and played everything I wanted apart from "Your own special way". I was 12 rows from the front, in front of a speaker stack. The stage was small, but close enough to see most of what was going on.

After the first couple of songs I thought "don't just play for us, involve us", and Phil did. Crowd singing, sychronised waving, that sort of stuff.

I saw Tony Robinson. He came in just before the VIPs filed in in front of me. He and the other VIPs didn't stand up, even though everyone else around was. I also thought I saw Philip Glenister, aka Gene Hunt in Life on Mars. I reckon it was 2 to 1 male to female, and most people 40+.

Cardboard seven inch tablet stand

When I got a Playbook I wanted to use it to listen to BBC iPlayer while doing the washing up. So I made a cardboard tablet stand out of the cardboard you get with new shirts.

Recently I came across a video by Jude Pullen showing how to make a right angle joint with card and it inspired me to share what I'd done, via a PDF rather than a video though.

The PDF below is for a Playbook but I would have thought that any seven inch tablet, like the Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus 7 would fit. If in the unlikely event they are more chunky than the Playbook, you can just cut the slot wider. It's probably more sturdy if you make it out of a corrugated cardboard.

20 years of blogging: First post

Back in 1999 it mostly cost money to run a blog (from what I can remember). You had to sort out your own hosting. Then Dave Winer made on offer on his blogging platform for a 60 day free trial, so I was away. So what was my very first post? What words did I choose to post for all on the internet to see?
 23 December 1999 I'm stil trying to decide what to do with this. Click on the skull to add your suggestion. Oh, that's not very good is it. A typo in the second word too. The URL was (I think. Everything I say could be unreliable, because it was a while ago.) I also created an FAQ page that day:

Who are the Morriss family? We are just a normal family with a dad who likes exploring the internet.Why don't you have more information? Because I'm not sure want I want to do with this site. I think there are no typos there. The idea was that I would share family news. Come back in January to see what my next post was.

20 years of blogging: fourth post

4/1/2000 Things are moving We've had the letter from Wycliffe about "raising support".  They want us to aim that 25% of our income comes from other people by the end of a year, and 50% by the end of two years.  Other news: I've officially asked for voluntary redundancy Spoiler: after 4 years of trying I didn't even get to 20%, so I was paid a salary after all.
