USB Desk fans

Well it’s Summertime once again, and that usually means hot weather.

When you’re stuck at the computer there’s no better way to do it comfortably than to have a fan (except maybe having air conditioning), but what if you don’t have a free electrical socket, or your boss is a bit narky about energy usage?

No sweat, as the USB port on your computer can also be used as a power outlet as well as for data transfer, and hence the invention of desk fans you can plug into a spare USB socket.

The one I use is currently no longer available, but there are loads of others to choose from as well as a variety of more snazzy designs.

Their use isn’t limited just for the summer months, as having the cool air from one of these fans blowing into your face can also be quite helpful to reduce the effects of feeling drowsy while trying to plug away at some of the more tedious things you can end up having to do at a computer (such as while doing a computer course teaching you how to use MS Word / Excel / PowerPoint that’s teaching you pretty much exactly the same stuff you’ve been taught about them on previous computer courses and the only thing that appears to have been changed is the course title + qualification level on the certificate) + also if your sinuses are feeling a bit stuffy.

The most popular beers aren’t necessarily the best

Ever since I first saw reviews for the Ford Escort Mk5, I started noticing that the most popular things aren’t necessarily the best things of their sort.

This also applies to beer, and was proved tonight in an article I spotted on the Daily Mail’s Facebook page showing a map of the world’s most popular beers that someone had knocked together.

Most of them appear to be of the sort that taste like tap water, and a beer taste so faint you’d need a scientific instrument as sensitive as the Large Hadron Collider in order to find it. Budweiser, Corona + Carling being among the lowest scorers on

Here’s a small selection of beers I find WAY better…….
1) Robinson’s Old Tom

2) Theakston’s Old Peculier

3) Morland Old Speckled Hen

4) Wychwood Scarecrow / Circlemaster

5) Wychwood Black Wych

6) Fuller’s ESB

7) Black Sheep Ale

8) Marston’s Pedigree

9) Adnam’s Broadside

10) Samuel Adam’s Boston Lager

11) Leffe Brune

Best British TV Shows that aren’t Top Gear, Dr Who, Sherlock or Downton Abbey

Well I’m a big fan of Top Gear…. not that bothered about Downton Abbey, or Dr Who or Sherlock (but one of the ex. online g/f’s is nuts about them)…. here are more British TV series which are even better if those had given you a taste for British shows……..

1) All Creatures Great & Small – A BBC Drama series based on the James Herriot books about a vet working in a Yorkshire country practice.

2) Poirot – Detective Drama series from ITV, based on the Agatha Christie novels.
