Eulogy – Dr Anne Boyle

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

We had the memorial service for my mother today - she died Monday, and the Irish tradition is to have a short few days of funereal rituals prior to the burial. In Mom's case - always the non-conformist - she asked for a non-religious service and a cremation, so the ...

GRC summary

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I'm heading to Vancouver on Wednesday, to attend the annual conference of the AoIR. Hopefully I'll be able to take the time to catch up on my posting - as well, of course, as meeting with various colleagues and friends.

Please do not adjust your sets

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Well, it's certainly been a while, but I'm back. After deciding on a short hiatus while I worked on becoming ABD, I found that something had been corrupted somewhere, and new posts no longer showed up on the home page. No mind, I'd already agreed a server migration with a ...

One Thousand and counting

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

A minor landmark - my post earlier today about community radio licensing was the thousandth to be added to funferal. I think a small number have been removed over time, for various reasons, but with the flurry of news items today we're definitely over the thousand mark now. Thanks to ...
