  • Wireless beer

    All is good in the world. My fave local, the Sidewinder has just been kitted out with free wi-fi. How tempting will it be to tinker away in the pub garden with a cooling glass of wheat beer?

  • Get It

    Mozilla 1.0. Stick a fork in it. It’s done and looking good. Posted a few pikkies from the Mini Rally recently held in Brighton. Check out those wonderfully ridiculous chopped cars – why have a small car when you can have a tiny one? Like me, Owen Briggs has been…

  • Observation

    Heaps and heaps of photos from around Brighton. Taken over the last 20 years they are the kind that focus upon what is extraordinary in the everyday. Found at bluejoh, a fellow Brighton blogger who met Some-bloke Tom at a wedding, only she didn’t realize at the time. One…

    If you’re lucky enough to be in Brighton on a sunny summer weekend, such as the glorious one we’ve just had, I heartily recommend you seek out Jack and Linda Mills on the seafront. They are fish smokers by trade, but when he’s not making ‘Brighton…

  • Honour to be nominated

    Last night saw the Brighton & Hove Virtual Festival Web Awards 2003. A good time was had by all – the beer was free (initially) and the venue cosy. Regular readers will know that Clagnut was nominated for Best Personal Site. Well I didn’t win but thanks to…

  • Ginger snap

    Oof. Someone was in die Hundehutte last night. A quiet evening in the Earth and Stars, iChatting to Dunstan (still in San Francisco) with Andy and Jeremy, ended up an early morning in the Spiegeltent. And there’s more Biscuit for y’all.

  • West Pier on fire!

    Brighton’s poor old West Pier is on fire. Yet more trouble for the beleaguered land mark. See the BBC webcam footage. It’s now burnt down to the metal super-structure. I don’t know what can have caused the fire, but my guess is arson. The pier is…

  • I go to Ikea so you don’t have to

    I think there is universal agreement that going to Ikea is both a tortuous and torturous experience, and testament to that is the very existence of a successful business created to circumvent that pain.

  • In conversation with Brighton station about CCTV

    A couple of days ago I was stuck at Brighton railway station, watching trains get delayed and eventually cancelled. While sat on the concourse I noticed the sheer amount of CCTV and various surveillance devices in plain view all around the station.

  • Now it’s the other pier

    Brighton’s other pier, the Palace Pier, has now suffered it’s own disaster, catching fire in a rather big way. Sad as it is, I haven’t got quite as much sympathy with the Palace Pier as I do with the West Pier. The Palace Pier is nowhere near as old, and is…

    Since I knackered my Achilles tendon in December, I’ve been getting back into cycling and mountain biking in particular. The Brighton Big Dog race is on in August and uses the same tracks I now ride most weeks. We’ve entered a Clearleft team.

  • Happy New Year

    Welcome all to 2003. Hope you’re all recovering from the excesses of Tuesday night! I’ve been a bit quiet recently, taking a break from all things computery, but normal service will now be resumed (unlike the poor unfortunate West Pier).

    It was hot, it was sweaty and it absolutely bloody rocked. Jeremy, Jessica and I were privileged to be among the 150 folks squeezed into Brighton’s Freebutt to see British Sea Power perform one of their famous intimate gigs.

    Interesting article on how the London Underground presents a metaphor for information architecture. Nicely presented too. Get your clagnut fix. You can now sign up for the less than monthly clagnut newsletter. Summer has finally arrived so I’m off down the beach.

    Day two, and following the CSS failure yesterday I thought we’d camp out in the Corn Exchange all evening to ensure we saw Art Brut.

    The final day. We only managed to squeeze in two-and-a-bit bands today, following a 40 minute queue to get into the Honey Club.

    Small town (city actually) talk. I reckon there’s some catnapping going on around here. And I don’t mean folks snatching a quick snooze. Here are just two of the flyers popped through our door in the last few weeks: I’ve seen at least 6 flyers and…

  • Playing with Delta

    I recently posted a bunch of photos taken on the South Downs back in late December. I was playing with Ilford Delta 400 film (pushed to 800) for the first time; in fact it was my first time shooting monochrome since college. It was a typically dull winter day, but still…
