“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 was a frequent customer and so was my mum until they went digital. Sad end.
Busy again, just a photo posting (smalls pics here linked to hi-res pics on my Flickr page). Mum, dad and me at the recent Skyfall Indpedendent/Matinal event at Bagatelle and what the hell is wrong with my teeth? (NB/ Thanks … Continue reading
Most people are quite happy just taking snaps with their digital camera or smartphone without any further tweaking. Others will go a little further and use their devices’ built-in editing software. Few, however, will attempt to use graphics manipulation software … Continue reading
Take that you stinking norm… At last, a home for my B. A. Baracus sticker… More stuff on my Flickr Photostream I pity the fool!
A package from Amazon came with my nickname* rather than my real name- *From M. John Harrison’s excellent and weird The Centauri Device
Remember the boat that I bought at scrap value from eBay recently? Here it is again: Today I had a go at cleaning it. One of my neighbours generously helped create a little space around the boat, which is parked … Continue reading
Good morning! Yet another day begins with instachino and it’s going to be a hula shirt weather again (at least inside the house anyway).
Another bucket list wish is to get into boating. This is a common nerdy theme, based on a wish to own a starship, but living in a non-space-dwelling era. Yes, while I can’t be captain of the starship Enterprise or … Continue reading

Its New Year’s Eve here in Curepipe, Mauritius. If you don’t know where that is, here is Mauritius circled in red at the far right of the map- And here is Curepipe- Curepipe is the highest town on the island, … Continue reading
Ok, I heard this on the radio a while back so its not hot news, but its such a cool piece of tech that I thought I’d share it with you. A while back a company called Lytro came up … Continue reading
May I present to you the rare, beautiful and delicious Mauritian cherry. Chomp. It’s gone now. I’ve eaten it.
I finally got back from Infotech 2011 a few minutes ago. Preliminary impressions were that of most small trade fairs; nice girls and a bit boring. Well, I was expecting elephants and dancing-girls, so I suppose that my expectations may … Continue reading
