Hello World!!! – Welcome to my personal blog-site; I have been reading all of your comments and feedback – THANKYOU for Making it ALL Worth the Effort!!!  …After YEARS of being Blocked, Deleted, Ignored and Ridiculed Generally on facebook it Really IS a BREATH OF FRESH AIR for me – I still have pages on facebook; one of them is called Trans Europe Music Group; maybe we will see us there and YOU (my new friends) will be part of my NEW ERA with facebook – I am still not so quick to add people yet (YOU can add ME and I WILL accept!) …I had TOO MANY problems with facebook team taking sides with all the assholes out there who I ever knew! …people who I once identified as friends, who once sat at my table – eating my food, drinking my beer and wine, smoking my cigarettes – even people who I worked for; SO MANY of them turned out to prove themselves to be anything BUT friends, by ‘SPAMMING me OFF’ over there on facebook…

Detailing ‘Business in Context’ – a model by Needle (1995)

In accordance with this model, businesses can be divided into several concentric rings (with the main activity level in the middle) each of these rings can perhaps be likened to the various corporate network levels of a company.

The activity level will be the inside of the company where company secrets about product design, components and/or specific materials + services employed by the company will be kept; this would likely be the company INTRANET.


The next levels are marketing and strategic with the market level being closer to the inside of the company (more to do with what the company produces + sales of said than what products used and purchase of those) – likely these levels would be connected to the company’s EXTRANET in any working scenario’s; being connected to the outside world and the heart of the company. The outermost layer of any company is the environmental level and relates primarily to how the company fits in as a neighbour within the community, a company that habitually creates a lot of dust and noise is less likely to be welcome in a residential or banking area. The ENVIRONMENTAL LEVEL of ANY company is its official face to the world and can be similar to the WORLD WIDE WEB layer of our network model …tidy corporate web scripts, while relating more also on the strategic and marketing levels, are (just like the companies public areas) like the face of the company – a simple thing like a shoddily put together company website can be just as off putting to the customer as a blocked yet UN-repaired toilet! The environmental level of a company is the way a plastics factory handles its waste, a discotheque contains its noise, a car body repair shop contains its pollution (polyester dust + fumes). In the discotheque, we can pass through the marketing and strategic levels and see agendas such as what food and / or beverages to sell + for what prices. Migrating through market level towards activity level, we pass through sales & marketing + public relations etc; Activity level within most companies is where all the skilled work takes place, from changing the beer barrels at the bar to working as a DJ (the discotheque); re-building peoples cars (Car Body shop).


Conducting a short SEMINAR about ONLINE RETAIL and the HIGH STREET; – to NOT do so is to NOT LIVE!!!




This was a short presentation that I did the other week at College;

ONLINE-RETAIL+HIGH-STREET-+-AVB-Ver-3.33 -(d/load link)

Everything was going relatively fine – until I came HERE;


And Realized that the projector was faulty!!! – (no RED!!!)

Like a Dinner Host who has just learned that Main Course has JUST become another STATISTIC to ADD to the CARBON ECONOMY;
found oneself Improvising with stuff like THIS;

CORPORATE-COMMON-SENSE-SOLOI got some inspiration from this small and sudden disaster – so, I made do with  that…

has this happened to you??? – I / We want to hear from you!!!  (see contact form below)



Detailed HERE is an All-Time CLASSIC!!! the BSOD!!!

how many presenters of seminars did NOT attend their A.A meeting THAT week thanks to

THIS!!! – our old friend, the BSOD!!!


Have YOU ever been in the MIDDLE of a PRESENTATION???

Your MOMENT of GLORY – Suddenly RUINED by ‘SODS LAW’;

my story is as follows; there I was presenting my presentation;

– there are other things that (over history) we have done with our

presentations (one descriptive word begins with an ‘F’ – And then;

SUDDENLY, (thanks to being thrown by a technical fault 

I did just that!!! – while managing to ‘hold it together’ a little bit,

I was (at this point) ready to BREAK!!! – I did not!!! …hoping for the

opportunity to give a REAL ONE sometime THIS YEAR – I Hope to SEE you

A Reflection on MODULE LEARNING;

by Anthony.V.Booth

This article is probably even more than what the title suggests – so, please …Read On!!!

I remember, during my years as a schoolboy, having just those little red exercise books and most lessons were simply blackboard after blackboard of ‘copying up’ –one of those little red exercise books was our designated ‘rough book’ although mine served as a ‘general purpose all-rounder’ containing my maths, English, French, chemistry and general scribblings all rolled into one!!! – including all of my homework ‘to-do’ lists!!! I can only look back at those times and wonder how it would have been – had we had computers like today as well as the miracle that has evolved from good old Arpanet!!!


In these times, we have got technological triumphs such as drop-box, Google drive, skydrive and Ubuntu one – to name but a few!!! all of this fits beautifully with such super-concepts as module learning which in itself is one component which is needed to achieve the level of efficiency that is needed to make the level of headway that we can and are making in these times! …had the course that I am doing now relied solely on old fashioned hand-written works then I would be writing this after a Decade or TWO in attendance at The Manchester College!!!

I already Do have an (old fashioned) filing cabinet which is mainly a place for me to store all of my old fashioned paper clutter in some place other than the floor, kitchen drawer, airing cupboard, mantle piece; – I now have several large folders containing master copies of submitted works and general favorites; however, all of my modules that I have ever done (since 2012) are backed up onto the cloud with more than one way!!!

The BEST FACT about MODULE LEARNING is that (as a technique) it is simply MADE for THESE TIMES!!! there have been many occasions (over these past years/months) where my internal file-searching has retrieved files from OLD MODULES from OLD COURSES and HELPED ME + MORE than you can IMAGINE!!!

ALSO; This post runs along similar theme to;

Any feedback? – feel FREE to use This!!!


I have to say MANY THANKS to ALL of you who have given me the much needed FEEDBACK here on this (my website) – I have spent YEARS on Facebook; simply being Blocked, Deleted, Ignored and generally Ridiculed by TOO MANY!!! – All of YOU who have taken the time to give me feedback here have made spending the money on my own domain(s) MORE than WORTH it!!!

A COMPANY VIEW; by Anthony.Victor.Booth 2013


Over the years, most of the world has watched the technology develop. I can remember in my youth when the backbone of many synthesisers was a master tone generator, or a collection of analog oscillators, and a piano keyboard; nowadays, it is a small computer – with interfaces such as MIDI, Firewire and USB being commonplace in todays state-of-the-art hardware.

As the technology with most consumer/ commercial/ military hardware has improved, so has the technology around computers – with the arrival of what can be best described as a ‘C64 Revival’; (“Commodore 64 rises from the 80s | News | PC Pro,” n.d.) a sleek new client computer that has all the features of most of today’s towers included Inside the Keyboard!!!

In the music production side of the computer world there has been a small revolution, with the evolution especially of a software protocol called ReWire; it works not only with REASON (by propellerheads software) but with a growing list of music/media production related software applications – this subject is covered in more detail in another article. But among the greats are Steinberg (“Home : Welcome to Steinberg |,” n.d.), Ableton(“Music production with Live 9 and Push | Ableton,” n.d.);

THIS is the ReWire logo it is (for me) an ULTIMATE SYMBOL of HUMAN COLLABORATION!!! – MOST People (sadly) only bicker amongst themselves (If they are even ‘interested’ – (in ‘Jamfabrik International’) – About WHICH exact DAW desks is the BEST; – while the AUTHORS play GOLF together and discuss Ways that their Products can Better INTERACT!!!

Detailed here is my OWN version of a talk-box (under construction) – my academic life has me too busy (yet) to get (back) into creating any sounds but I am hoping to find some spare time during this summer (2014) to do some (more) stuff; this time, I plan to use this gizmo to assist in my creation of some more renditions! – I do not yet consider myself to be really a music/media producer, although I am sure that there are and will be a lot of people out there who are soon going to recognize me as one! …Busy, I have been with the Network and IT side of the picture; my philosophy being that it is great to build CD racks as well as to create CD’s – that way, I can promote/market the works of others and hopefully find a system of mutual ‘back scratching’ unfold from there…

A link to a page on the propellerheads website; detailing ReWire; (“Propellerhead – Reason – List of ReWire capable software,” n.d.)

From the angle of an amateur rendition artist and entrepeneur, I have found the same old picture of machines getting faster but the whole picture being hampered by LAN speed issues when working with network drives; waiting ten, twenty or more minutes for a project to load from a network place. When innovations such as Active Directory and Encryption are used there is AGAIN an argument that All of the LAN across the studio(s) must be at Least a 1Gbps connection – With at LEAST an i7 equivalent for ALL workstations within the organization.

 This is the view from SKALABAR at Paleochora Crete GREECE; - it is generally a representation of the WORLD AVERAGE SEA LEVEL!!!

This is the view from SKALABAR at Paleochora Crete GREECE; – it is generally a representation of the WORLD AVERAGE SEA LEVEL!!!




This article is a story about our world and us, about the huge distance that human kind has traveled in just 100 years, the way(s) that we have progressed both forward and backward in that time.

When I was young, my hobby was electronics and I used to even use my school dinner money as collateral for my various whee lings and dealings with these things, I used to hold single transistors in my fingers and could somehow ‘feel’ that this was a Big Thing! (little did any of us know just how big).

As the years went by, I discovered integrated circuit chips and became equally addicted to antics with these. Among the projects that I completed were a wind speed analyzer, computer controlled alarm system and a custom job to adapt an old VCR into a security cam recorder – the security cam system was still working after fifteen years (after my last conversation with Dalby sq, Cliftonville) – we now know that the system is  obsolete.

For all of my life, I have been a fan of electronic music, synths, drum machines and sequencers; as a schoolboy, I remember starting to build a synthesiser using an old school desklid. It was as recently as the turn of the millennium that I still had the ‘ambition’ to build a master tone generator (H & D, 1974) and install it inside a marble keyboard!!! …also, the idea to create audio filters using real components; and then, I discovered the ReWire group of software suites.

Going back to my youth, I used to make things for the garden (using old wood from around) my friends and I used to take market stalls from Glossop to Prestatyn and sell our products, I found that I was good at and enjoyed market trading (back there in the ‘old world’). Slowly slowly, as time has passed, much of the ‘first world’ has changed beyond all recognition – more people than ever are buying and selling online, but I (as an ‘old skool’ head) can still appreciate the values of real shops that sell real CD’s, Vinyls even tapes!!!

I am, at the time of writing, convinced that I will always understand the concept of a real shop with real customers coming and going – but will never see an online store as a replacement for all this, however – an online store could always serve as an extension to any real outfit but not necessarily the other way around. I think that any kind of web based entity is ‘dead in the water’ without some kind of ‘drive’ from the real world and some good Old Fashioned business admin.

This kind of business admin would be in the shape of promotional flyers, leaflets, letters – even posters and/or banners…….

Personally, I have had now some five years of experience with social media and found it (to-date) nigh on impossible to communicate with old friends with whom I had seemingly re-connected with; – as a result, it is my rock solid opinion that I should have actually gone and made contact in person! The only trouble with that approach is that I would still be traveling NOW between all the various places! Is it perhaps fair to say that all this virtual ways of connecting everything together will likely yield quantity rather than the quality that any Real Life equivalents have to offer!

During the past years, I created some amateur renditions (“PENNINESHIRE_CENTRAL’s stream on SoundCloud – Hear the world’s sounds,” n.d.) using some of today’s state-of the-art in Digital Audio Workstation applications including Ableton (“Music production with Live 9 and Push | Ableton,” n.d.) . Reason, Cakewalk, Steinberg were among my other favourites.

For quite some time, my cyber acoustic tantrums have simply been sat there (webside) as well as on my hdds and backup DVD’s. – I am thinking that when I finally become a good enough network manager to sufficiently organise myself that I might eventually come up with a product. Adjusting to the new school technologies is the primary key to becoming a piece of the action in any aspect of the I.T world.

The idea that the ordinary CD is now semi-obsolete is a stunning fact that all of humankind is slowly realizing. More and more people are using phones and tablets to listen to music; portable devices these days can hold anything from a shoe box full to a suit case full of media CD’s AND DVD’s!!! slowly slowly, people are waking up to what they are holding in their hand!!!

Detailing MY PERSONAL LOGO and It’s journey from yesterday to tomorrowwhat our Fathers and their Fathers used to stand on their FEET and Cut from STEEL, – We sit at Computers and just click with the mouse – and then THINK that we have done some WORK!!!


This is my Family/Company logo; – it was devised by my Father;

(Alan Victor Booth) –I am able to use the Same logo as my name is

Anthony Victor Booth;

This is just a rough idea of the design that can be found stamped/milled onto press tools, special purpose machines and tools/jigs at certain engineering workshops across the world!!! what our Fathers and their Fathers used to stand on their feet at the steel milling machines and cut into steel, WE can now sit on our BUTTS in front of COMPUTERS and just Click it together with the Mouse! – and SOME of us think that what we have to do in These times is WORK!!! – Most people of THESE times simply do NOT KNOW that they are BORN!!!


I created this logo in the summer of 2012 while attending I.T workshops at Astral Training GLOSSOP; the government training programs and opportunities at that time were a dream come TRUE!!! (for me) – I had So MUCH skills and expertise with ITC stuff, yet NOT even the equivalent to a CLAIT certificate!!! …so, while others were getting their benefits sanctioned because they could Not be BOTHERED to spend a few hours at the ‘office’ – I mean, it was NOT even WORK!!! (and I ended up with some LOVELY little pieces of paper with ‘EDEXCEL’ and ‘BTEC’ -oh, and those little silver holograms).

             – SUCCESS is the BEST DRUG!!!
