Since my last entry a few weeks ago I have updated the web site with a new design and switched my blog to using a program I designed for another web site. If you have been visiting over the past few weeks you may have noticed lots of one line entries – these were imports taken automatically from Twitter, I have decided however that this was a bad idea as a lot of the messages were pretty random and not really of interest to people outside twitter, I have since removed the automatic Twitter importing, so if you want to see what I am up to regularly you can follow me on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/alistairuk.
Speaking of Twitter I was playing around with Photoshop this morning and changed the way my profile looks, inspired by Justine who did a similar thing a few months ago.
In other news videos I place on YouTube automatically import too, so there are now two videos of me at Maho Beach on the joint Dutch/French island of St Marten in the Caribbean.
On the merchant navy front I am returning to Warsash Maritime Academy (who have a new web site by the way) on sunday for what is hopefully my last time there.
I believe I have 3 weeks of revision/finishing off the foundation degree and then around 9 weeks of short courses such as GMDSS, Advanced Fire Fighting, Emergency First Aid, NARAS and EDH. Before being able to sit my orals examination with the MCA.
Anyway, this was meant to just be a quick update, I shall start writing more when I return to Warsash.
