Shrewsbury, UK - Pete White and world famous ImAFish have today launched three new niche environmental blogs to help people keep updated with news in their respective areas.
www.reachnews.info tracks industry trends and news for REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances).
www.rohsnews.info brings up-to-date news regarding ROHS (the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment).
www.weeenews.info covers a range of stories in and around WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
ImAFish takes the issue of the environment very seriously and helps where possible to spread environmentally friendly messages.
When deciding on service providers there is often a clear choice, whether it be because they have a local monopoly (like my water provider) or because they offer you a good deal (like my mobile phone provider) but when it comes to finding an ISP noone has a good deal.

In the past week I've moved office and moved house! I still have no Internet at home so I'm using my phone.
Last Thursday we moved office to The Pump House, an environmentally friendly building that gives us great new facilities and loads more space. The three of us had been crampt up in our old office for almost two years which means we can look to expand in the coming months.
On Friday I brought my first house with my lovely girl friend Laura, I've spent since then moving stuff in and sorting it all out. It's a slow process but we are finally getting there.
The office and house are only ten minutes walk apart meaning I can sleep in till 8:30 each morning and still get to work on time.
More coming soon once Plusnet activate my broadband.

It's been a while since I blogged about music but with the Miami Winter Music Festival coming up it seemed like a good time to mention my two favourite trance podcasts. They come from no less than two of the biggest names in trance music and their weekly updates are well worth listening to:
