To the lovely people who have left some comments on my blog recently, and who may be wondering why they haven’t appeared. It’s because you have a URL that takes me to a completely unrelated product website. That and it’s obvious that you’ve not fully read the blog post in question. I realise you are,…Continue reading Dear Comment Spammer
I always get excited when I see an email in my inbox with a subject line that starts “WordPress:…” as it means someone has commented on one of my blogs. Such a simple delight I know but hey, you take pleasure in the little things I guess. Sometimes that delight is instantly crushed when I…Continue reading On blog comments
Ahh the internet is full of simple pleasures, like Wordle. Give it the URL of your blog, a chunk of text, or your del.icio.us username and you get something like this (click for fullsize, requires Java):
Note: This is a techie question, all those not interested, look away now. (and no, I’m not doing very well at the whole ‘staying away from the blog to be productive thing…) [update]SORTED!!! That nice man wot writes Hydragenic came through for me (apparently he would ‘not be defeated’, he cracked it second time round).…Continue reading Redirecting Question
I’ve changed the name of this blog, well the banner image, from Informationally Overloaded to One Man Blogs. As no-one has mentioned this I presume no-one has noticed but there was some thinking behind this (and hey, you know me well enough by now that I have to analyse it a little, right?). 1.

The title of the post, Bottom line, all weblog apps suck in some way, was borne of frustration and outlines…Continue reading Web apps are not products
I continue to dip in and out of the current crop of social networking.. umm.. websites … applications? … ummm webapps.. or however the hell they are collectively known (I’m desperately trying NOT to use the “Web 2.0” tag here). None of them have particularly stuck with me, at least not yet, and they all…Continue reading Who ARE you people?!
The domain www.gordonmclean.co.uk no longer points at this site. There is a holding page there for now, and it won’t ever be much more than that, a place to get information about me, a URL I can use to link to without direct fear of dumping people straight into this blog. It will be expanded…Continue reading Site note
If you currently link to this site, please update your bookmarks, links, blogrolls and whatnot to http://www.onemanblogs.co.uk/. The previous URL (gordonmclean.co.uk) will stop forwarding to this site at the end of the month. You have been warned.
Changes are afoot. I wonder why that is, why are they never “ahand” or “aknee”? Anyway, having received notice that I’m shortly due to renew my hosting account for this site, I’ve decided that now is probably a good a time as any to move my site. I’ve been reasonably pleased with 34sp in the…Continue reading Moving Identities
