A New Home

Monday, October 10th, 2005

Hello! Welcome to my new domain. After troubles with my other host I decided to move. I have just finished migrating my blog, comments and theme to this new server, which is all hosted under my domain name Now I have a couple of issues : redirecting traffic from the old site is no […]

Blog Down Over Weekend

Monday, October 10th, 2005

The server hosting this blog was working very slowly and/or not at all over the weekend. Most of the time requests were coming up as a blank page. Initially I thought there was a problem with the configuration, and I upgraded to WordPress 1.5.2 (Strayhorn) without success. However, this morning things were back to normal […]

Featured at Urban Semiotic

Monday, October 3rd, 2005

I won a prize in a zany blogging contest : make a story out of seven smilies. The prize was to write a blog entry for Urban Semiotic. So why not take a look at my post over there, for I am sure you will find other interesting content too. It’s a good thought provoking […]

Being Interesting

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

Incremental Improvement

Since Tara told me that she didn’t have full control […]

Don’t Miss the Pages ->

Friday, September 16th, 2005

There are a couple of pages in my sidebar over to the right that I’m hoping to develop. First of all, the Jokes Database : lots of funny jokes in a number of categories. Have a read through and let me know if you have any better ones. A lot of people pass through here […]

Digital Rights Management. Right?

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

Sarah in Tampa, a blogger and sysadmin for a small business, probably knows enough about technology to live happily with her PC. When it came to getting some Madonna tunes she purchased from onto her iPod she was bitten by misguided DRM technology which is there ostensibly to prevent copyright violation. She had to […]

Sunday Moment

Sunday, September 11th, 2005

Driving around Paris. Initially, a very scary experience because if you’ve driven in England you’re not prepared. Traffic lights are not opposite the junction, but right next to it. Road signs point out places that are close by : rarely road names or places further away that you actually want to get to. Inside Paris […]
