A new website

Several years ago I bought the domain name duncanstephen.co.uk. I have never really been sure what to do with it, but I have kept it up because, well, it’s my name. I have had holding pages up, but never anything of real note. I have had a bit of time off work this month, but […]

Welcome back

Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog! This is it — it’s official. This is a proper relaunch. And to prove it I have about a dozen posts already prepared, ready to be whipped out whenever I hit a dry patch. I was actually hoping to launch it a few weeks earlier. But the […]

The future of this blog

The observant among you may have spotted that it is a month since I wrote a post for this blog. It is interesting that I have not even found the motivation to write about the General Election. This is not a conscious decision — I genuinely have not been moved enough to put finger to […]

There is a good reason for the lack of updates

I don’t often write about myself here these days. Despite the fact that I went to all the effort to set up a personal website, I do think it is a tad self-indulgent to bang on about myself. However, some readers may be interested in recent developments in my life. Regular readers will know that […]

Charlie Gordon’s expensive website attracted just 18 visits per day

To my astonishment, I was taken directly to the Webalizer stats for Charlie Gordon’s website. This seems quite unusual to me. To access these stats for my […]

The Designers Republic

The other day I learnt from my brother that the graphic design company The Designers Republic went out of business earlier this month. My interest in graphic design is not particularly heavy. But the interest I do have in it has all stemmed from my exposure to the work of The Designers Republic. Their work […]

A new look (and some more admin stuff)

Hello there. I misplaced my F1-blogging mojo for a bit, hence the lack of proper posts. Mind you, that may be just because Formula 1 is on its annual summer break at the moment so there’s not a lot of news going around just now. I knew it would be like that, so I thought […]
