“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

I’ve been moaning about the Olympics a great deal in this blog, to anyone who’ll listen to me rant- in the street, in the pub, to relatives and to myself in the mirror. No doubt before the end of the … Continue reading

After having lived in Canada, Mauritius and the UK, I can tell you that free-to-view channels are crap the world over. Now that we have bandwidth to spare for extra programming, what do we get? Massive choice? Oh no. I’m … Continue reading
I’ve never been a great programmer. I’ve fluctuated wildly between utterly incompetent to unbearably clever. It’s been years since I’ve done any professionally, but lately, given my boring life, I’ve decided that I want to stick my oar back in. … Continue reading
