A boards.ie poster says that he lost his parcel when the courier company left package in the bin. Now, this points at a big problem with home delivery. You aren’t always home to receive. But imagine if your courier (or tesco delivery guy or whatver) could let himself or herself in, under controlled, observed conditions? Would that make life easier?
SherryFitzGerald website relaunch
The design of the new Sherry FitzGerald website is something I had a hand in with Image Now. It has a nice distinctive look. There are a couple of UI and search engine niceties that have to be looked at, but I think it’s looking pretty good.

Launching the Swords Express
Here’s my latest entrepreneurial venture, the Swords Express, a frequent regular service from Swords (the third-biggest town in Ireland) and Dublin city centre. At present, it can take up to 90 minutes to get to Swords from the city. By using the Port Tunnel, we hope to halve that. I think this service could make a big difference to Swords. I hope I can find ways to get the support of the local community to make this a big success for them and for us. If anyone out there can help or has any comments to make, that would be much appreciated.
Making an Impact Online on Bernie Goldbach’s Flickr
Bernie reviews my book, and says very kind things. You can buy it on Amazon.
From the footer of the easyhotel.com confirmation email:
Intellectual Property: The easyGroup of companies has built up a significant reputation in the name “easy” and has a number of trademark applications and registrations in many countries. easyGroup cannot permit others to use the “easy” name without the group’s rights being prejudiced. It follows that no use should be made of the name “easy” (or anything similar to it) without our consent.
That’s easyToUnderstand. They’re definitely not looking for easyMoney. I know it’s easyToForget to capitalize your company name too.
