  • Abusing the abused

    Another newspaper article that makes grim reading “David Goodwillie rape accuser opens her heart on vile internet abuse after charges are dropped“. Wonder what it tells us about Scottish society when a *woman*¬†who’s an alleged rape victim is the one who’s vilified? The footballer guy at the centre of this is in the middle of […]

  • DrupalCon and archive.org

    Was noseying around websites for previous DrupalCon’s and found that previous events have video available hosted on the archive.org site.
