Welcome to Ibiza

Our holiday was canceled and we were transferred to a Thomsons Gold hotel.

Some background information for those of you who don’t know me personally: every year my family goes to Es Cana, Ibiza, for the last two weeks of season. Variation is nice, but we know all of the bar staff around here so we get free drinks. I know my way around the resort – and increasingly those neighboring it – like a second home. We’ve always been to family-style hotels. For the last five or six years we have been to the hotel Cala Nova and stayed in the premiere, double-sized, sunrise-facing and sea-surrounded rooms, from the balconies of which it is possible to steal wifi from nearby apartments

The flights have changed this year though, and the Cala Nova is apparently closed for the two extra days that we’re here. Thomson tried to send us to the Hotel Cala Llonga in, well, Cala Llonga, but we declined as Cala Llonga is a barren land consisting of a beach, a tack-shop and up to two bars (subject to season).

I updated my blog’s platform last night.  It was a seamless transition, and there is now tagging support for me to implement.  Apart from that, there doesn’t really seem to be anything different.

Also, these bugs are starting to really irritate me.  In Internet Explorer 6 the post headers are in weird places, and run away from the cursor when hovered over.  The submit button for the comments form is the same.  If anyone would like to debug this for me then I’ll provide some linkage.
