Just a wee note to say if you are using any version ABOVE (NOT including) 1.2, then I’d have a look at this and this. The latter is probably a better explanation. Ohh and not trying to be cryptic just don’t want to alert the unwanted to this (you’ll understand what I’m wittering on about…

Three and a half

Reading time: < 1 min

I was very generously given a bottle of Southern Comfort last night. It was from Susan, as thanks for video-ing her wedding, and as it’s my favourite tipple it is very much appreciated. Mind you, I now have three and a half bottles of Southern Comfort. One here on my desk at work, and three…

Well I don't know!

I’m at pains to even post this but I will because it’ll serve a purpose. I don’t blog about work often (other than the usual “my aren’t I busy today, I really shouldn’t be blogging” type of post) but I’m making an exception. It’s a blip, I know that, it’s the early panic before the…

Thank Allah for backups

If you popped in between midnight and 12.30am the site was down. That’s what I get for trying to install a nightly build of WordPress. But then as the bug I logged is, seemingly, fixed in 1.3 and I’m running.. er.. 1.2.1… well aside from making me a complete ass, it also makes me wonder…

It’s dark outside. Matches my mood. Maybe Frank the rabbit will appear. That is all.

WordPress help

Reading time: < 1 min

Right. I’m stumped. As ever several other people. As detailed in this support forum post I have my main index file (this page) outside the directory WordPress is located. WordPress presumably allows this as you specify a different directory for the WordPress URI to the Blog address URI. However, when I edit my template, it…

And then it was Monday

I’m SURE there was a weekend just there, right? There WAS, wasn’t there? I’m not going mad(der)? Friday night and I felt well enough to go the pub, and well enough to stay there from 5.30 to midnight drinking Guinness. What else? Ohh yes, how could I forget! The Christmas tree is now up and…

Hacked?

Reading time: < 1 min

Can anyone confirm that Green Fairy has been hacked? (no links, you know, just in case) If so, has she been hacked by someone using a Blackberry device? The text on her site reads blackberry DOT netweaver DOT net, very odd. UPDATE: She’s back. Panic over.

Return of the Shorts

Anyone know of an EASY way to import a load of links into del.icio.us? ~ Flickr Uploader is fab, I’m slowly moving my photos to Flickr and may yet need to sign up for a Pro account. The more I look at it the better it gets (unlike my photos…). ~ I have a few…

The Shorts strike back

Reading time: < 1 min

Lyle, look away now. Tomorrow our Christmas tree goes up. This brings immeasurable joy to my darling wife and, somehow, this is a compromise. The compromise being that it isn’t up all year. Not sure how she got me to agree to that one, she can be a devious so-and-so sometimes. ~ Our new office…

Shorts

It’ll be a day of short posts I’m afraid (or a couple of posts with lots of short bits in them). Splitting headache when I woke up. In fact I was in bed at 10.30pm last night (very early for me) and I still don’t feel like I’ve had any sleep. Can anyone say “head…

I like coffee. I like nice coffee even more. So when a work colleague suggested a few of us chip in to get a proper coffee maker, and save us all from Nescafe hell, I jumped at the chance. Just think, filtered coffee. Bliss. We can take turns bringing in a blend (fair trade of…

Wheelchair

Reading time: < 1 min

The more I thought about it, the more I realised just how hard it must be and so my admiration levels grow. I’d probably need an adapted car, for whilst the trains DO cater for wheelchair users I’m not sure how long I’d last being the person (thing) holding everyone up. Then I’d need someone…

Insubstantial is closing and it doesn’t sound like it is for good reasons, hope it’s nothing too bad.
