New Server

For the geeks out there... If you can see this message then you're looking at the site running on a new (faster) server.

And as a special treat the photos are all now a little bit crisper, the same size but better quality.

Long time no see

Where does the time go? I've not had chance to update my site or even start finishing work on the new one!

Bearing in mind i've been looking at a place to live and plan a wedding I'd let myself off :)

Colin McRae Rally 2.0

Typing 'Colin Rotherham' in on Google brings me to the top spot already but now typing in 'Colin 2.0' even beats Colin McRae Rally 2.0 which used to securely have the top spot!

Moving up in the world in an insignificant way at least.

Finally an update

It's taken a while but after travelling a few hundred miles and then arriving back at my door i've finally got the Newquay pictures on the website.

Almost made a meal out of a mole-hill.

British Summer!

Finally we get a fantastic hot weekend. Too bad I had to drive 300 miles to enjoy it!

About 13 of us (Plus the people who actually invited us) all went to Dorset for the weekend. Beach BBQs, camping and of course good times.

Sigur Ros

Went to see the band Sigur Ros last night with Joe and Jacques. They put on a great performance, the band that is. My back ached all the way through but it was worth it.

If you've never heard of them before they're providing the music for the BBC's Planet Earth natural history TV series

Well, I thought i'd officially announce it. Work begins on my new site, codename "colin3-0".

I've been off work all day, having a break for once, chips for lunch, and a spare few minutes to start the new project :).

Kill Your Computer (Or My Server)

I was bored so i made some pages where you can see every single photo on my website at the same time, give it a go.

And since i've spotted people clicking the little index images on the gallery page trying to click through to the photos, it will actually do that now :)

All Thumbnail Images At Once

All Full Size Images At Once

A Faster Future

Hosting bills have gone up again! I'm having to scale back the size of the fullsize images, but that means they'll load quicker and the thumbnails should generate a bit quicker too.

For the geeks... fullsize images, in addition to being slightly lower-res, are now being cached on the server so those of you with super-fast internet connections can see them that little bit faster!

Wales Weekender

On one hand fun, on the other hand malice... both sides of the fence in this blog entry. Hard to sit in the middle.

A good time though... see the photos, don't try to keep up with the "popular crowd" for too long though before it and its followers snap back at you.

HMV Showcase

Well, here's a fresh blog entry specially for Ioannis. Well done to Lloyd's band for being the best band at the Life Cafe yesterday!

You'll find 3 videos and a few heavily edited photos (otherwise you wouldn't be able to see a thing!) in the gallery. Have a look if you're bothered :).

Just For the Trailers

If you've not been to the cinema lately i'd definately recommend going. So many new films coming out,

Just watching the trailers makes you wonder why on earth you're stuck watching the film you chose. So many good ones on their way.

In Addition

The messages page too, it's getting overloaded with dodgy innuendos. The recent ones now deleted.

Word Of Warning

Days after introducing the message posting on photos it's pretty clear that certain people can't help but abuse it. If you're going to start putting insulting comments about any of my friends, or anyone in fact, then these will be removed.

Something i don't want to do is make you have to register first before commenting and only let certain people comment. I'll see how it goes.

Bug Fixes

Just got rid of a few bugs that might have been annoying you on the gallery pages...

When in "View All" mode, clicking a photo then clicking again no longer puts you back into the page view again, but properly back into "View All" mode. When viewing hundreds of photos in "View All" clicking fullsize then back again will jump you right back to where you were in the long list of photos. Going back and forth after setting the fullsize picture to not fit the screen (actual size) now remembers your choice. THE END

On a side note, in less than a month i've added an extra 1000 photos :S

Well, i think that was good

Think that was the first time i've had 16 people stay at my house, have mum successfully feed 30 people and manage to have an awesome ball when the DJ backs out 2 hours before it's due to start!

Cheers to Naf, Ty, Joe, John & Nathan for getting the music together at the last minute :)

Long time no see

Been pretty quiet recently, hardly had chance to catch up with most of my good mates. Doesn't mean anything isn't happening though.

I managed to miss Ashley's party, possibly the biggest (and best?) event of the year, but looking forward to everyone coming to up mine this weekend though :).

Those Americans?

Wow, time flies... Not so long ago I remember seeing that photo counter hit 4000 photos. Now it's at 5000! Good times.

Oh and it might look like i've posted this message at reasonable time, but just realised my server is American... so add a good 6 hours onto the time 8-)

The "Hardly Ever Post" Blog

The infrequency of these posts can hardly be compared to the number of photos i keep putting on the website. Looking back, there hasn't been a dull month for just about a year.

As well as fireworks with Nathan... Jonica & Mike got married this month, Ashley's got his party planned and then i'm off to Dubai. Can't complain really.

A Measure of Success?

This site has become so big! Out of courtesy moved myself off my work's servers... and in just the past 20 days you lot have downloaded 5GB of photos and videos.

People are now starting to find my site on google, and in the same period of time i've had over 300 unique visitors visiting a total of 1125 times! That's just since the start of the month. Fantastic.

"My Mama always said, 'Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get.'"

Well, the video clips are up and running. It's taken a whole lot of work to get them all onto here! Camping was fun at the weekend. Only went for the 2 days though, sun shone as soon as i left.

Dug out some old photos of my Kingdom Hall maintenance day so those are on there too. If you find a video that doesn't work, please tell me.

Since i've got nothing to say really, thought i'd do a bit of meaningless advertising for some of my friend's photo galleries.

They're using flickr. Ah well, can't have everything.

What's going on?!

It's been over a month since the last update, i apologise, been a lot going on too. I have been taking photos it's just i've been putting them onto my half finished new site.

For the time being you can get John's photos of our trip to North Wales, including Sian's photos and photos from Newquay.
Oh.. and also the photos from my amazingly bad car crash.... some *not being sexist* female driver smacked into the side of me, flipped my car over!

Easter & Bank Holiday Weekend Special

Went all the way to swansea again with Johnny B, picked up the coat i'd left and then came back again.

Well ok, we did do a lot of fun stuff in between so you can check it out on the photos page... kinda useful these links.
If we look cold in those pics at the sea.. it's cos it was! We got frostbite going in the water. Not good... still fun though.

Make that the next best legendary weekend ever!

In just one week, i have driven 1000 miles in my car! And it was worth every bit of petrol.
Lucy's ball in south wales was amazing, so thanks for that! I also got Heidi's photos on

Back in february we went go karting with work, 2 hours of team based endurance racing, so those pics are now on.
You'll also notice some the "pictures" of the razorlight concert if you can call them that. Sam took them all so they're way blurry

8th of March 2005 at 12:00

The most legendary weekend ever!

Went to the ball in stafford, added two new photos sections, that's about 100 photos!
It wasn't just the ball that made the weekend, it was seeing everyone again!

I've just realised i'm getting close to having 2000 photos as well! And for those who care... in the past day i've had 420MB of photos viewed, stunning.

Biggest and best announcement ever full stop

Ok, well i know i've not made an update for days, but i've just put the photos from ty's "LAN" on, same with the ones from that all you can eat chinese meal.
The big announcement though is that the whole site is going to be changing very soon, gonna be next month though. Eventually you're going to be able to rate pictures, comment on them, and maybe even add your own pictures :)

But anyways, it's a long way off yet, so much work to do....Enjoy

The food holiday

Only been back from spain since saturday and already i've driven about 400 miles, nice eh?

Just to avoid the 1000 fine i had to drive all the way back to my house from John's to get car tax, but then picked up some good mates and went for a meal in Birminham (Photos on the way).
As for spain though, was pretty amazing... so much cheap food, so little time. I'm sure i've put on weight. Enjoy the photos.

It's gone!!

Well, this afternoon, at about 1:30pm... i watched as "my" red escort drove off into the distance (as in the end of the road). It's not mine anymore, and as of now i'm carless

Hopefully though, on thursday i'll be picking up a nicer newer honda accord for me to drive... this truly will be "colin 2.0"..... Ooh, and going to spain on saturday.. yes! Just got to make sure i have a car..... need to find a way to cannock for a start, not having any of this train business

Not updated in ages

Well, the old days are over... i've gone and sold my old camera :(
I've got some good memories of that little cam, but i'm sure the new one will serve me even better

On a good note, before i sold the camera i found a fair few pics i'd missed off from the "new years weekend," so you'll have check them out.... Ah yes... I'm going to spain again on the 29th!!
Update, pictures from Ashley & Dave's visit this weekend are on

Ok, well, i just can't stop thinking of improvements to my website.... you'll find that all the latest updates will be in red which should help the regulars

Oh, and maybe a little bit of bad news, not in the slightest really, but it is for me.... I ordered my new camera, specifically so i could get it before the weekend... and the little note i wrote for the parcel guy blew away, so it's not gonna be here 'till saturday. When i'm not here :(

Brill start to a new year

First of all, i've got to apologise for all those people that couldn't make it, or for other reasons didn't end up coming to stay over the past few days.

Even so, we all had a quality time, i've added my photos from the weekend, heidi's photos, and also some from a meal a lot of us had earlier in december..... Anyways, i've made a much needed update too.... photos now open up in new windows

Baaaaad days

Well, for joe's sake really, i'd best post another update on my website. And probably for some weird kid from some other part of the world that visits this website.

For those who know me, it's not been the best week at all. I won't go into details, but anyhow we had a cool weekend. Loads of people went to iceskating, want to thank everyone for being a good mate, i knew loads of people there.

The end to a cool weekend *sighs*

Had Emily up for this one, and got a small crowd together for a meal on saturday, flipping expensive at that

Thought i'd have a dabble at the inner workings of my little messages page. I've made it show the latest 3 messages underneath the form.

So basically, for all you lazy people with no jobs, you don't even have to click a button!
