A Christmas Legal IT Mystery: The Strange Case of the Car Park that Never Froze


Not quite a Christmas ghost story but a mystery all the same… A few years ago there was a UK legal software vendor called Mountain (this was long before they were acquired by Advanced Legal) that was based in Grantham. When the company had outgrown its offices in the centre of the town, the moved to new premises on an industrial estate outside of Grantham, located on the side of a steep, windswept hill. When Mountain enjoyed its first winter in the new offices, they were pleasantly surprised to see that despite its location and the fact the winter was unusually harsh and snowy, the company car park remained free of ice and snow.

There’s an app for it – going Fine Dining over the Holiday Season ?


OK, this is stretching the legal IT angle a little but today’s app – FineDiner – was conceived and designed by leading legal IT and management consultant Neil Cameron. As Neil explains “the main idea is to maintain a personal record of trips out to great restaurants – notes, photos, dishes, cost etc – rather that finding restaurants to eat in although it will do the latter too – if you buy a data pack (via an in-app purchase). The basic free App can be used to add details of any restaurant visits – but you have to add all the details of the restaurant manually. However, if you pay for a regional restaurant pack then you just pick your fine dining restaurant (it includes all Michelin and another 30% or so of good places) and all the details slip in for you to just add your visit details.
