I’ve never really been a fan of Apple’s internet browser. It’s never looked like it’s been finished to me, missing all sorts of features that you can find in the likes of Firefox. However, Safari Beta 4 is starting to turn my head. It looks rather nice and seems quicker than Firefox 3. Unfortunately, I…… Continue reading Going on Safari
I’ve just upgraded to the new minor version of WordPress (2.7.1). I had a couple of problems that required me to deactivate the Automatic Upgrade plugin (perhaps I should just remove that now considering that the core has the ability built-in now), plus there were a few problems with file permissions which required me to…… Continue reading Upgraded to WordPress 2.7.1
I’m sat here on my sofa with my iPhone tapping away on the little touch screen to see how easy, or usable, it is as a blogging tool. There are several limitations. There’s no copy and paste, so linking is going to be a pain. I’m not about to be typing them out by hand.…… Continue reading Blogging from the iPhone
I can’t help myself. I just can’t stop messing with the theme for this blog. Expect things to change around a bit over the next week or so. I quite like this Firebug theme but I’ll need to personalise it a bit with bigger fonts and some other changes here and there. I’ll try not…… Continue reading Once again with the theme changes
The latest, and possibly greatest, version of WordPress is now released. Named after freeform Jazz pioneer John Coltrane this new major release delivers an entirely new backend, the design of which was driven by the WordPress community. Apparently. It seems very nice – certainly an improvement over the previous version although it’s taking me a…… Continue reading WordPress 2.7
There are some rotten sods on the internet. Over the last two weeks I’ve had a few problems with this blog. These issues have been caused partly by the incompetence or laziness (or both) of people sharing my hosts server but also by the desire of malware writers to infect users’ PCs. I was “hacked”.…… Continue reading Nasty personages
Adam Savage is rapidly becoming one of my favourite TV presenters. He’s just a big, ginger, beardy kid with a love of science (and blowing things up). What’s not to like? Here’s proof: Remember kids – don’t try this at home! Found via Bad Astronomy. Cheers!
Cancer is a horrible, horrible disease but it seems that one recent cancer-related news story has driven a considerable amount of extra traffic here. It was announced on Tuesday that Jade Goody has cervical cancer. This is a sad state of affairs even if I do think that Jade makes a pretty worthless “celebrity”. It’s…… Continue reading Cancer – good for your stats
You know, I just can’t stop fart-arsing about with my blog theme. I think it’s a disease or something, but I’m finding it impossible to stick with just one. What makes my blog indecision harder is that Smashing Magazine keep releasing excellent free themes. This newest one, Infinity by yichi, looks gorgeous and I couldn’t…… Continue reading Yet another new theme
I’m taking a naturalistic approach to this site’s design at the moment. I’m trying different things out and seeing if I like them – assuming the site still works afterwards of course. I subscribe to the rather excellent Smashing Magazine and they had a great post about textures and patterns in web design a little…… Continue reading Evolving. Slowly.
There’s not been a lot of activity over here for a while but I hope to be posting more often very soon. I’ve had an extremely busy few months, what with getting married and trying keep my job and all that, so I’ve not really had either the time or inclination to be posting much…… Continue reading Things may seem odd for a bit
A few months ago I took over the job of Public Relations from my old mate Ray at band. I took the decision to take the opportunity to update the band website and I’m close to getting the site how I’d want it. It’s temporarily on a new domain while we get the old one…… Continue reading Band website
