Two for 2017

Instead of the standard 'year in review' post, I thought I'd so something different and create a list of "twos" for 2017. These can be 2 good things, 2 bad things or a mixture. But just two.

And, yeah, sorry it's taken a while – thinking and writing up all these things has taken some serious time to do.

And in no particular order…

What’s on my desk?

A while ago I wrote posts on ‘What’s in my bag?‘ and ‘What’s in my pencil case?‘. However, picking up an idea that came from an internal discussion amongst some Automatticians, I now present to you ‘What’s on my desk?’.

What’s in my bag?

Inspired (no, okay, I ripped it off entirely) by Matt Mullenweg’s post of the same name I thought it would be interested to share what’s in the backpack that I take around with me when travelling for work. It’s early times yet, with only a few such trips but 3 more due this year and I have no current intention to change the contents.

I’m certainly not the “road warrior” that he is but I certainly think there may some ideas for others – what I liked about seeing Matt’s was that it gave me some further ideas of my own. I particularly liked some of the stationary items that Matt has and I’ve already been looking into them.

My Smartphone History

Yeah, I know this is an odd subject but I couldn’t quite remember which phone I had when so I did some research and noted them down.

How to replace the Battery in a Nexus 5

A few years since purchase, the battery in my daughter’s Nexus 5 was, shall we say, ready for replacement (it was fully draining within a couple of hours). Although without an officially replaceable battery, replacing it isn’t too difficult.

In preparation, I purchased 2 things – a new battery and a phone repair kit, the total costing less than £14.
