I know it has looked like a bit of a ghost town here over the last month. The truth, though, is that there has been quite a bit of metal-bashing behind the scenes.
Last year I noticed a huge increase in the number of spirits-related events in Ireland. So many that it was hard to keep track of them all. I have now gathered every upcoming event in Ireland that I know of onto a single page. There is a link to it in the menu at the top of the blog too. If you are organising something and it's not already listed, drop me a line or a tweet.
Why did it take so long to create a single web page? Well, in real life I'm a software developer and I took the opportunity to explore some of the latest, industrial strength technologies. The page (and the associated admin screen) is vastly over-engineered but I consider it a template for future, more complex features.
