Just because you buy ‘luxury’ goods in Tesco does not make you rich. And just because ‘luxury’ goods are expensive does not mean they are good. Method cleaner review. Bang bang average.

Remember the murder of Jo Yeates. Awful, awful stuff yes. Not to be crass, though, but it was just one of a number of cases that we solved. Another example was the Washington Sniper. Me and Ms Tonic were a formidable team. Us doing the intellectual leaps of reason you have to undertake to solve […]

Roomba iRobot review. The future is here and it’s shit.

But we can’t help loving it The wife, Mrs Gin (and please don’t write in saying that’s sexist, it isn’t), hates it. She thinks the Roomba has a foot fetish and goes straight for her toes every time it ‘senses’ them. As an aside, the foot fetish is an odd fetish, isn’t it? We’ve never […]

On love for old computers

Nostalgia is just stunted ambition. Nevertheless, of late, with the world ending, we have been getting very nostalgic about our past. But, for people of our age, cough, 40s cough, what a dull past it has been. Our parents would have got nostalgic about big things. About moon landings, rock and roll. Us? We have […]

Plague Journal 10: Scaredy Cats

We have a colleague (‘co-worker‘? yuck!). We have a colleague. Yes, they say we are an absolute delight to work with. So positive.
