For outdoor activities such as walking and hiking, the maps that are the most useful in the UK, (and most widely available) are the Ordnance Survey 1:25000 series.

It's a form of procrastination. I know it, but seem unable to do anything about it. It involves doing everything imaginable around the periphery of a task, whilst avoiding the task itself.

It's made real easy by the fact I have a second low spec PC in a cupboard which I use as a file server and file sharing client (all legal of course). I've always wondered why seemingly routine tasks such as backup ......

Greetings, and welcome to the blog of Greg Woods, Software Developer. Why am I jumping on the blog bandwagon? Well, because I frequently have things I've got to get off my chest.
