I just had an idea and I think it might be rather cool…
So, I was reading the morning’s blogs/news/etc. and I came across an article in which the author had clearly just mistyped the sentence “but the company has said” instead saying “but then company has said”. This made me think, in these days of the social web editors and the distribution chain are spending less time proof reading, in addition there are a greater number of people who are less extensively educated being involved (I think we can all agree that education is less strict at the bottom echelons). Personally I don’t think my standard of English is bad but at the same time I know I regularly make mistakes while typing and that there are doubtless many errors that I don’t pick up on (my family occasionally corrects me).

Welcome to Us in Orbit.
This site is a personal blog and article site for Bob and Angeliki, it doesn’t attempt to document our lives but aims to be a vent for thoughts and information.
I (Bob) was formerly a lecturer before being tempted back to industry, but I like to offer my assistance to anyone who has an interesting question. So if you have some challenges, if you want my opinion then please contact me and I will consider publishing a response. I would also like to offer consultancy on a commercial basis if you are venturing into areas where I might be useful. Students are welcome to pose me questions related to their studies, although I don’t expect to be doing your work for you and I will be unlikely to provide references sufficient to make my words truly authoritative.
I have just found this cool tool on DigitalSpy and I have to say it is rather good. There is rarely a substitute of a site survey, but Google earth/maps has come to my rescue in the past.
Well, it’s been a while but we’ve been working on a new layout for the site. It is now ready so I have stepped out and bought it online.
Please feel free to criticise.
Thanks to my brother for spotting that the comment section of my site didn’t work. Hope I’ve fixed it, darn SEF module was doing too good a job and the Comment module had a stray ./ a mixture for disaster.
We've been sitting here and curious about our new pages, so we've been looking at who was visiting. AND I am surprised to see someone from the BBC navigating our site, one of my old colleagues I suppose, but it was fun to watch their navigation. Disappointing that they voted 1 for one of my pages, thanks for the support!
Ok, so here I am, I've moved my blog to my website.
I've had this domain for years and been playing with it on and off. But now after harrassment from Angel I have decided to actually make use of this site and here it is!
Enjoy, register to both comment and rate my posting.
Also checkout the articles section, I hope to be making travel and technology comments beyond just my blog!
