The Political Games of Elections

By Office Space Toronto In standard13th April, 2011

On Monday when I left my house to take the bus (yes the bus) to my downtown Toronto office space, my street was full of different coloured election signs.  There were red signs, blue signs and green signs, but funny no orange signs. Then when I went to catch the bus on Tuesday to again

What a Week Glad its Monday

By Office Space Toronto In standard11th April, 2011

I think I may have had one of the worse weeks last week. I never thought I would look forward to a Monday. The week began with dealing with a plumber fixing the heating pipe leak, then waiting for the flooring guy to fix the damaged Parquet flooring who could not seal and finish the floor

Spring is Trying Very Hard to Get Here

By Ian In standard2nd April, 2011

Over the past few weeks we have had some good weather days, only to be followed by days where winter resurfaces. As I was walking from an appointment on Front Street back to my downtown Toronto office space, I noticed the dangerous evidence of fluctuating temperatures on the ceiling of the railway underpass on Yonge

The Missing Programmer

By Ian In standard26th March, 2011

As many of my friends and family know, I develop websites and help plan companies online success. Most also know that I do not do all the back end programming myself.

It is late Sunday night and I am out at a dinner with friends celebrating a special occasion when I got a call from a client. It seems that had accidently deleted a file containing some photos I took for them, and they needed to send the photo to their printer by 2:30 AM in

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I am heading down to the Toronto International Bicycle Show, so this blog will not be about office space Toronto, Downtown Toronto office space or even Toronto virtual offices.

Starting to Think Those Rodents May Be Wrong

By Office Space Toronto In standard28th February, 2011

With the weather we have been experiencing over the past few days, I am beginning to believe that we cannot put our trust in groundhogs. This year neither Wiarton Willie nor his American cousin Punxsutawney Phil saw their shadows this year, meaning that spring weather was to come sooner. According to legend of Groundhog Day,

You Have To Try Stampede Bison Burgers

By Ian In standard24th February, 2011

I do not get a chance to go for lunch with clients as most of the correspondence is done by email and phone. But today a client wanted to take me out for lunch to discuss a new project they want to get going. Instead of a fancy eatery, they suggested burgers and I suggested
