A temporary standing desk

So all last year the rage seemed to be about standing desks.

After all, sitting in a chair is basically cutting your life short.

But rather than forking out £300+ for a basic adjusting height desk, or more for one with electric motors, I thought I’d first see if I liked it.

I ‘built’ this one last night.

Backblaze’s B2 Service Becomes Cheapest Cloud Storage!

I heard of Backblaze a couple of years back –


At just $0.005/GB/mo (plus the usual bandwidth & request pricing), let’s compare it with Amazon’s S3 service.

Backblaze B2 Amazon S3 (Standard)
Price per month $0.005/GB (10GB free) $0.03/GB
Upload Free Free
Download $0.05/GB (1GB/day free) $0.09/GB (1GB/month free)
Per-transaction fee (downloads) $0.004 per 10,000 $0.004 per 10,000
Per-transaction fee (other) $0.004 per 1,000 $0.005 per 5,000

Full details of Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage pricing can be found here, and AWS S3 pricing can be found here.

Thanks for the t-shirt, CodeGuard!

As some of you probably already know, I quite like wearing promo t shirts from brands I support. Having emailed them earlier in the year, CodeGuard shipped me a t-shirt which arrived just before xmas! This one’s American Apparel (one of my favourite brands of tee), so I’ll be sure to wear it.

They shipped it FedEx Priority too, so must’ve cost a bit.
