The Old Peacock

The Old Peacock has stood on Elland Road opposite the football ground since 1826, in fact, long before there was a football ground. It has served generations of football fans and in 2013 was bought by Ossett Brewery, undertaking a 300,000 refurbishment to bring it into the 21st century. Today it is a vibrant pub dedicated to fine food, real ales and friendly service. In essense; not your typical football pub.

Sabotage Times

Sabotage Times is the latest venture of James Brown (founder of Loaded magazine, Leeds, Leeds, Leeds magazine and former editor of GQ, amongst other things). The site is a great destination for people interested in football, fashion, sport, opinion, relationships, drink, film and many other subjects; a one-stop-shop of quality writing which is updated several times every day. Here is a link to the main site.


Twitter is a real-time information network, a social media and micro-blogging site that connects you to the latest information about what and who you find interesting. You can find the public streams you find most compelling, follow the conversations and even join in. Anybody is accessible, whatever walk of life they are from. Here is a link to my Twitter feed.


Facebook needs no introduction, much-maligned in some circles, but a social networking site with diverse uses nonetheless. Providing you follow one of life's most basic principles, ie. choose your friends carefully, I find it perfectly harmless, quite amusing for promoting random thoughts, and a vehicle through which to keep my friends informed of what I am doing, regardless of whether they are actually interested.

Leeds Computer Repairs is a rapidly growing one-stop-shop for all IT-related issues, including hardware, software and all forms of media communications.

David at Leeds Computer Repairs helped me invaluably with the design and execution of this website. Leeds Computer Repairs
