Welcome to Empirical Purple

A blog by Simon Brady to cover a surprisingly wide range of geekiness, in a combination that no-one else does quite the same way. Probably. Either that, or it'll just be Simon talking about the likes of Football (usually the Soccer variety), PC & Tabletop Gaming, WWE, Movies, Music and occasionally even my actual job of Graphic Design, depending on what I'm up to in the world.

Oh to be a Sith Lord

It's always nice to turn up to work and discover that there's no power. Even nicer when you've not been told about it beforehand, y'know, because modern communication techniques like mobile phones simply can't stand up to the electricity being off.

What made it even better came after that. Once a plan had been formed, I packed up my Mac and drove straight home again. Within seconds of turning my car's engine off at home, I hadn't even got out of the car and found, by the wonders of technology, that the power had been restored and I needed to make the whole journey once again.

After a quick cup of tea, it was back to work. So, an hour and forty-five minutes later than usual, I actually started my work. On deadline day.

Yup, it's been one of those. If only I had unlimited power.
