Woke in the night after almost having an accident - so I informed the staff when medication was being given out. They said that it was perfectly OK and that they will find something for me. The staff know about it, plus one other does too, they assured me it is nothing to be ashamed of... support like that really helps me feel comfortable.
After breakfast and meds we went to the Centre to begin our morning group session, which included picking a topic at random from a basket and discussing it. Afterwards was a... [read more]
1,000 ... yes, 1,000th blog post.
Well, for the past couple of years I've been wanting to hit this mark at the end of the year (like as a New Years Eve post), but in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, I had failed. Now it's the 1st of May, I can't exactly keep the site quiet for another 7 months, so today will have to do.

According to one article on the Burton Mail website, Adam had mentioned "Me and my mate Rich Walton were driving from my house in Stretton to B&Q at about 7:30am", so this happened fairly early in the morning.
Upon first looking at the picture you can clearly see a nice looking tornado and that the picture can clearly... [read more]
My previous post explained about the UK Police's latest crackdown on torrent sites and along with that, they also shut down Immunicity (which was just a normal free censorship tool). So with Immunicity no longer working and also shitloads of proxy websites going offline every week, what's the next best option?
TOR. That's what. TOR stands for The Onion Router - and like a router does, it directs traffic in different ways... with this it directs internet traffic through a volunteer network allowing you to totally avoid any "This page is... [read more]
