Starting my own personal projects has meant trying to find a different way to manage and prioritise my work, mostly because I’m not constrained in the same way in my own work as I am in my day job. During my day job those constraints tend to be things
I've been a subscriber to Tested.com since it launched and a follower of Adam's since I first watched Mythbusters. Watching him geak out has been one of my favourite ways to spend an hour each or so each week and getting to read about how he's got to enjoy

I tore through this book in just a few days, absolutely engrossed in the story. When I was growing up Led Zeppelin's music was all around me so it's interesting to dispel some of the legends surrounding the absolute tour de force of this band, and equally entertaining to have
