How come I have just noticed the blog by Vitali Vitaliev, have I not seen it before or is it a new feature? Can anyone blog or just him?

Hi andy, from a search it seems the blog you have mentioned is not actually on this site but on a different one called http://eandt.theiet.org/blogs/index.cfm and it seems there are others, such as buzzsore, cabinet of curiosities, eccentric engineer etc......

Why not just start your own unofficial blog on the wiring and regs forum- start a topic called 'sparkingchips blog' and update it whenever you feel like it - from you as a well regarded poster I'm sure it would be welcomed by all

ed.it to correct link

I presume you are getting the link as well in the sidebar to the left of here under the search box with the heading "Other Blogs/ Forums" where one is listed as "After All"

I don't know about a Sparkingchip Blog, bad things happened this week I went to the hairdressers Thursday lunch time and I quietly eyed up the young stylist in the mirror, as men of a certain age do, then she charged me the pensioners special discount price for the cut, talk about being gutted! I don't mind the four quid discount but there are hurt feelings to be considered.

Mind you on the plus side I started a Foundation OCN Auto CAD college course on Thursday night and ended up sitting next to a very nice young lady who is a Vet rather than one of the engineering blokes out of the Tool room, so it ain't all bad! It makes for a different conversation to the usual ones whilst we drew holes in a steel plate!
