02-Oct-12 My 200th blog

In Blog, Personal on September 29, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Yes, after 9 months of blogging, today is my double century of posts. Who would have thought I would have got through 200 of these all those months ago.

200 not out!

As I started writing my blog on the train home, there was not really an absolute purpose to my blog today, albeit I felt I needed to do my milestone blog, as my social diary is busy for the next 72 hours.

This last week has been busier than normal at work. With some pressures around our roadmap of work for 2013 and the associated budgets, I have been knee deep in Excel formula’s today. This is now my my third iteration of creating these from the ground up for the function, and although it becomes easier each year, it always brings fresh challenges.

After what appears to have been a successful IDC presentation a week or two back, it was nice to attend the annual CIO summit (run by the CIO publication) last week and witness some senior peers in my industry presenting. The full day event was an interesting insight in to some of the commercial challenges presenting local government, as well as some high profile private businesses. The highlight of the day was the presentation by the soon redundant head of LOCOG, who provided an interesting insight in to the IT elements of the summer games.

At the weekend, I decided to move even more closer to the dark side and ordered our family (the kids reckon its mine) a new Google Nexus 7 tablet. Although a big fan of the iPad, I was keen to get my hands on an android tablet and see how it compares, so watch this space over the coming weeks.

There was two further highlights from the weekend.

One was the Ryder Cup. You do wonder how this one is going to matched in the future for drama, but then they said that after the one last at Celtic Manor. After yet another out of this world team display, I guess the organisers of Sports Personality of the year must be wondering how they are going to cram this years programme in to its normal slot!

The other highlight was Doctor Who. What a tear jerking end to Amelia Pond. It will never be the same without her (or did we also say that about Billy Piper). Cannot wait till the series resumes later this year (trying to avoid mentioning the seasonal word).

RIP Amelia Williams (AKA Pond)! A touching finale.
