Everyone’s favourite monthly building services magazine has had an online facelift. The website now matches the look of the publication and there’s even 6 RSS feeds to subscribe to!

Firstly, apologies for the hourly del.icio.us posts – I think I’ve fixed the problem now and there should only be one a day now at most. We shall see… Broadband services have resumed and I’m back on my old computer. After a year of being mothballed, it’s behaving remarkably well and I’m poking about at […]

There’s a few folk who don’t blog, but I wish they did.  And now one more does – Jonathon Porritt’s musings can be found here.  I also found Tony Jupiter of FOE via JP, blogging over at comment is free, the guardian’s collection of hosted blogs.
