Tag: URL


www.snowgoon.co.uk should now take you to this page directly.

So if you changed to www.snowgoon.co.uk/index.php then sorry, you need to change it back.

If you didn’t change your link, or have no idea what I’m wittering on about, then you should’ve stopped reading about 42 words ago.

MT Comment Hack thingy

Can someone explain how it works please, specifically why I keep being told I have a banned URL from a site I commented on last week!


This week I’ll be here and at Jezblog, where I and 4 others are guest blogging.

Well I would be if I hadn’t been a numpty and deleted the email Jez sent including the posting URL…

A busy week ahead then, guest blogging, working on three projects (all to be done by end of October) and a day off on Friday (more on that later).

So I’ll see you at some point!

Banned URL

I’m not using MT so haven’t had to bother with all this “Avoid Comments Spam hack” like the one in place over at A Blog’s Life.

Unfortunately it is now stopping me posting comments to some sites. Am I really blacklisted? Little old me?

David Gallagher

Prompted, in part by Gert, I thought I’d go a little further than check my referrers but actually go and find out something about some of the more frequent ones. Now considering the top 5 are (in no particular order):
1. “Kylie’s bum”
2. “kicking men in the nuts”
3. “Kirsty Gallacher”
4. “David Gallagher”
5. “something”

I thought I’d pick the one I knew least about and exclude the one that I really don’t want to find – can you guess which?

So without further ado I give you (and everyone who keeps appearing here looking for him): David Gallagher. An actor it seems, who I’m guessing is quite cute judging by the number of people who append “underwear pics” to their search…

Other thoughts about this little ‘experiment’ :
1. I’m the first site WITHOUT the word something in the URL to appear in the Google search for that very word, and on the first page no less.
2. Kylie’s bum is everywhere, even sitting on my desk, no not literally, I would hardly be sitting here typing this if … ahem… anyway a picture of her is…
3. We (bloggers) keep doing this, offering the search robots more reasons to find our site for things we aren’t really associated with (no matter how much we would like to be…), vicious circle or self-serving linkage? What’s it all about (Alfieee).

Bits and Bobs

Didn’t cover Independence Day yesterday, too busy working on a little project for this site (coming soon, now how many times have I said that!). Also didn’t get round my usual visits, so missed Jennie’s redesign, Meg’s run in with looney cornflake lady (again), Julie’s bizarre dinner at breakfast accident, Tom’s rant against the Guardian which I wholeheartedly agree with, I’m not on the list either! (Ehh maybe because I didn’t send in my URL?), finding out how to raise zombies, the realisation that I am not the only person who relies on diet coke for a caffeine fix, and I’m not sure what ‘deliciously tired’ means… (you got some strange fetish going on there or something?) but I think Pinky’s Spy name seems weirdly apt.

I’ve also been missing a LOT of annelizabeth as I was visiting her old URL – silly me – and I’m contemplating how well something like this would go down on the Clockwork Orange.

In other news, I spent last night doing precisely nothing. Watched Spiderman cartoons, surfed a little (mainly CSS and javascript sites – there’s a little clue for you), played a few games on the Playstation, read, ate, drank, fell asleep at 1 a.m. (finally).

Woke up with a cracking sore head that refuses to shift. And I’m off to see Minority Report tonight.

Right, are we all caught up now?
