Analogue vs Digital, Part 3: Rise of The Mechatronics

Heading the Wrong Way

Welcome back, again. It’s been a while. Again. I started this blog in late 1998, to share thoughts and experiences as a  motorcyclist returning to the fold after a long lay-off, as many of us then were. Things have been a little quiet though these last few years, mainly due to the exigencies of restoring a 200-year-old Highland farmhouse and the consequential distinct lack of riding time. A deal of spectacularly bike-unfriendly weather hasn’t helped either, but here I am again, blog moved from my old faithful co-located server of the last nine years to a nice new cloud thingy, whence I can continue pontificating on the life, the universe, riding and driving. Of course stuff gets lost along the way: for the moment most of my posts still need to be updated with their photo galleries for the new system. Which will take a while, especially as I’m doing the same for a bunch of other blogs. I hope it’s easier in another decade.

So please bear with me on missing content and broken links. For the moment at least. Normal sarcasm will be resumed shortly.
