Going Solo, Leeds, UK

Good news. Going Solo – the “one-day educational conference for freelancers and small business owners” is open for registration. First 25 registrations get the special early-bird discount and pay just £150 (which by all accounts is going fast…).

I’ve been freelancing for about a year now, and running a small business for over six months. It’s moving fast, and I’m enjoying learning a great deal from first-hand experience and others’ stories. Going Solo looks like a great opportunity to get first-hand feedback from like-minded people. I’m hoping to get a lot from this event.

Yet Another Random Tip

Here’s another random tip from the dark recesses of my warped explorations:

You know how pretty much every DVD out there has some annoying “copying is bad mkay” video where the teenage girl is downloading some film stupidly fast? Criminals always have the best Internet connections… anyway, a lot of them have a list of countries at the start. Looking for United Kingdom? Well, it’s on page four of four, at the end.

The point of my rant is that if you choose some weird random country (Belgium seems to work), quite often it’ll skip the copying warning, thus saving you those precious thirty seconds of your life you’d otherwise not be able to fast-forward through.

Clearly Belgians don’t copy stuff then.

BTW, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a very funny movie 🙂
