Happy New Year

Didn’t blog as much this year as I would have liked to, I either didn’t find anything worthwhile to say or just plain forgot.

Here is to next year!

Christmas Tree 2007

Well it is that time of the year, where we pull all the dusty boxes out of long forgotten corners of the house and put up the Christmas tree!

Rich Mullins

Catherine and I have been listening to quite a bit of Rich Mullins music over the past few days, both his own renditions and one by Caedmon’s Call. Hearing the music and Catherine telling me a bit about his life spurred me to read more about him.

There are so many websites who chronicle his life and works I don’t see a point in doing it here, I will however link to some of the websites I found.

3 Years

Tuesday, September 4th 2007 @ 6:12 pm by Richard

Before Catherine and I got married we went to Catherines grandparent’s 50th Aniversary, ever since then we have said that we wanted to see our 50th aniversary. We know this is going to be hard work, both to keep our relationship with eachother and God strong; and to support and protect eachother so that we both survive that long. Today is our third aniversary and it feels that we are a small step closer, today marks the 6% waypoint, we are still enjoying our challenge and looking forward to more!

Getting Back Into Blogging

Tuesday, August 28th 2007 @ 12:31 pm by Richard

It has been a long while since I last blogged, I must admit I have thought about blogging from time to time but there dosn’t seem to be a chance to actually do it. I might get into it a bit more now my site has had a re-design and a tidy up, so expect some more technicial information over there about Games, System Administration, Programming and Computers in general.

Over here I hope I will get a chance to blog more about day to day stuff that Catherine and I get up to… maybe.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to anyone still reading 🙂

One of my resoloutions for this year is to blog more: here, on richard-slater.co.uk and on GuildCafe.

What am I doing?

Friday, November 24th 2006 @ 2:42 pm by Richard

At the moment I am quite clearly blogging, however in the wider scheme of things I have been fairly busy. My attempts to take over the world of EVE have so far failed, I am however fairly satisfied with my progress, I have a nice little operation going buying and selling virtual materials, ships, modules and ammunition. Outside of the Virtual world I have been contributing to the EVE Online Wikipedia article and EVEMon (A EVE Skill planner).

On the topic of Virtual stuff, I am quite enjoying reading both Richard Bartle’s “Designing Virtual Worlds” and Edward Castronova’s “Synthetic Worlds: The business and culture of online games” as well as reading blog entries by all sorts of MMOG experts (Including Bartle and Castronova) on Terra Nova.

House hunting has all but ground to a halt, there is so little on the market at the moment that we are going to wait for the new year before searching maniacally. The current flat is serving us for the moment, so neither of us are unhappy with where we are living, which is good.

Catherine and I have had two nice days together on our first anniversary weekend, yesterday we had an evening meal at Al Duomo in Brighton (where I proposed to Catherine) and today we took a picnic up to Devils Dyke which was beautiful.

Best Man

Monday, July 4th 2005 @ 8:51 am by Richard

Well, I managed it, I was the best man at Pete’s wedding. It went very well people even laughed at my speech which although not unusual for people to laugh at me, i feel they were laughing with me rather than at me.

On another note, Four Weddings and a Funeral was on last night, which brings me to another point… Catherine and I have been to 4 Weddings and A Funeral in the last year

– Pete & Vicky Bassett (Saturday, 28th August 2004)
– Richard & Catherine Slater (Saturday, 4th September 2004)
– Neil & Marie Isted (Saturday, 25th June 2005)
– Pete & Elkanah Arthur (Saturday, 2nd July 2005)

Housey House

Monday, June 13th 2005 @ 9:51 am by Richard

Finaly Catherine and I have found a flat that we like the look of, it is just off the dials and about 20 minutes walk from work. I am very relieved as it was starting to worry me… now all I have to worry about is the references going through smoothly, all being well we should be able to move house in the last week of the month.

And just as a note, if anyone is looking for a house or a flat in Brighton, you honestly can’t go far wrong with Tanat-Jones they are based on Western Road just down from Waitroes towards Hove. They have been excelent working really hard to find us this flat, I am very impressed.
