- My Tweets
“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

Mum standing proudly next to our ecologically-sound living Christmas tree adopted from the Mauritian Forestry Ministry for about £6. It might be small, but it’s ours. And then there’s my permanently displayed, ecologically unsound plastic tree. The first photo was … Continue reading
I downloaded and tested the new Google Maps for IOS against Apple’s own Maps app and, guess what? (Ironic fanfare etc…), they both still suck. Mightily. Of course, presumably unlike my richer and fatter (metaphorically speaking guys- don’t get your … Continue reading
