The Goldeneye Lair

Ever wondered what’s involved in bringing this to you?
Thought not, who cares anyway? I perhaps should seeing as I’m paying for it.
Computers, servers, domains, unique IPs etc - yawnnnnnnn

Here is my end of it, the powerhouse behind the Goldeneye Empire :)

For those of you with a technical interest in computers etc……
That’s Francine Dee on the middle computer and Pammie on the right-hand laptop

I’m not sure how many hours I have spent in here over the years but more than is good for me I suspect. I sometimes think I could throw them out the window but…

Whilst these things have been online all day doing this and that - I have been wandering around in the sun pontificating.
Whilst my musings lead to little in the way of progress my little babies above kept ploughing away and doing what they do.
This leaves me free and unconcerned with the banalities of life and the real world so perhaps I won’t kick them out of the window just yet.

Showing the exact origin from whence this minor utterance comes from makes me think.
Thousands of people a week are reading what’s on this site from just about every country in the world -
I wonder where you are and what’s life like ?

    After standing at the York book fair and taking a total of £53 from Joe Public I am currently undergoing light archival restoration.

    That really is terrible, in fact you’d think impossible at such a fair.
    Personally, I have not even visited a book fair for at least 3 years, a sign of the times.
    I am surprised there are still so many fairs, surely many must be on the brink of extinction?
    Thanks for taking the time to comment
    All the best

    Whilst being neat and tidy, we find the Goldeneye Control Centre strangely uninspiring …. where’s the panache and what’s more where are those curtains from? We are however, grateful that Pammy is confined to the screen and not as we expected, wallpapered throughout! WoE

    that’s the only neat and tidy part of the room !
    Rest of the room is wood panelled and lined with bookcases , big desk etc.
    All pretty dull and old fashioned, maybe I need to gut the room and rebuild.

    Pammie is indeed confined to the screen, sadly, for me, the way it shall always be :(

    re uninspiring

    one of my favourite things hangs just next to the laptop on the right.
    It’s much better than a screen saver of Pammie!
    I carefully cropped it out of the picture, someone somewhere knows why

    I’m in a seedy hotel in a backstreet of Morocco !
    Needless to say I am OHMSS so cannot elaborate but I’ve already got my eye on a couple of belly dancing honeys for tonights end of mission celebrations!

    Your house looks dull and boring, my favourite room in my bachelor pad has a huge bed with a mirror above it. I had to have the bed reinforced and securely fixed to the floor!

    Keep it Up !

    Anyone who visited The York Bookfair needs, quote ‘light archival restoration’ re, The Man Himself.
    Francine Dee and Pammie are far more appealing, but what about Katie??

  8. Rod said,

    there are two types of men, those that look at Katie price and those that go to bookfairs !

    I gave up the latter and took up the former some years ago
