All moved in. Well, Almost.

Standard

Well, the move to the new domain name is almost complete. Once apon a time irrationale.com was called evolvetechnology.com, and was basically the same thing as it is now: A site dedicated to informing whoever's willing on what's going on in the IT world.

 There's news articles on games, linux, technology and science. There's reviews of hardware, software and games (and I may even add book reviews at some stage). There's even this section where I plan on sharing interesting information that I come across from time to time as well as a gallery for interesing pics.

If you have any suggesions or comments, then please let me know via email . And as always, you can register to the site via the left hand user menu if you want to participate.

 As always, I hope you enjoy reading the site as much as I enjoy writing it.

On the way I stopped off in Newcastle to visit my Mum and to finally pay my last respects to my Grandfather, who rests in a beautiful cathedral overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Next I stopped in and visited my Dad and his wife and daughter, and to visit the town I once called home.
