divil the bit eric

very busy with work and college atm. Social life has been very boring as a result.

Assignments up to my ears and building a new site for work in my spare time.

Wish I was a tax dodger. Ive worked continuously for the last 12 years. I pay household tax, insane motor tax and i drink and smoke a lot so i pay loads of tax on them too.

Fucking hell, is that the going rate for car tax or are you guys driving SUVs or something?
Is it the same as road tax?

Mines a 2006 so it's under the old engine size regime so that's the rate for a 1.6 petrol. I'm guessing mojos is probably a 2 litre or thereabouts

Got about 60 odd euro off an event I organised tonight. Not bad for a Wednesday.
Found out a colleague of mine has met Assange. Kinda a big deal.

I seen some list of who to see at the Web Summit and they had one of the desperate houswives on the list. Is that really what people in the industry care about?

Yes, in New Zealand years ago.

My ears hurt like fuck.

Good experience, no desire to do it again really.
