Month: <span>January 2007</span>

Update: Allowing people to add a comment might help, huh. Should be working now. Apologies for being a numpty.

So, it’s not all working yet but, frankly, that jarring Christmas theme was beginning to annoy.

Whaddya think?

Ohh. You might wanna refresh the page, by the way, for there is a new coat of paint on the site.

What’s new?

Well for a start the comments are now WordPress comments. No more pop-ups. Gosh I’m SO up-to-date, aren’t I. And no, I haven’t imported all the old comments, as important as they are it’s just TOO manual labour. I might do them slowly, in small batches. But I doubt it.

Same goes for the miniblog, the old posts will remain on Blogger, and the comments on HaloScan. Frankly I’ve got better things to do with my time!

The miniblog is now controlled by WordPress too (and will take a wee while to fully populate). I see the posts are listed in the “previous posts” list above, need to sort that one out..

What else? Well a few bits and bobs, but nothing too major.

What’s still broken?

Several things. The search works but not quite how I want it. The archives might NOT work. The comments aren’t finished yet either… ohh and the links don’t seem to have come through in the blogroll.

I’ll continue to tinker with this tomorrow but for now, say hello to “Informationally Overloaded 2007” (at bloody last!).

Ajax start pages suck
“They fail to present the information I need in a format that I can quickly grasp. They don’t allow me to do the things I should be able to do from there. They add more work to my life…”

I am being very tardy with this here blog, my sincerest of apologisingness. There is a perfectly good excuse, I’m sure, but it’s probably more fun if you pick one yourself. I’d probably go with “too busy” but the problem with that is that, whilst it’s kinda true, I’ve not been THAT busy.


I ventured out of the house today. Not that big a deal you’d think but I realised, as I trundled down the motorway at 90mph, that it was only the third time I’ve been out of the house since Christmas Eve. Ahh, THAT’S the excuse for not being here much, I’ve not been well!

Man-flu. It’s a terrible thing, makes you sit around all day, moaning, eating crap and watching cricket (bloody hell, those English blokes are RUBBISH!!). Thankfully it’s on the mend, just in time to avoid Celebrity Big Brother. I had a sneaky peek this morning, good lord what a motley crew!

I digress. Hey, it may be a new year but old habits die hard my friends!

Into Glasgow I went, camera in hand, for a leisurely stroll before meeting some ex-co-workers for a spot of lunch. Took a fair few photos, bought some shirts (for the new job) and enjoyed being a tourist for the morning. After a delicious italian lunch, home with my remote control jeep in the boot, and back to work. Yes, the new design isn’t far off, just need to crack the comments, search and archive pages… a change will do you good, they say, but obviously they’ve never fucked about with WordPress themes!

What else? Ohh This Life +10, of course. Ahh but how it failed to live up to the huge burden of expectation. Yes it was good in parts, but a one-off was never really going to hit the heights, not enough time to build up the tension before Anna fucks off and fucks everything you fuckers. Still, at least Egg was the same.. but then I don’t think Andrew wossisface can act any other way.. easy to cast I guess.

I’m forgetting something…

Ohh yes. Have you read the awful email Girl (Abby) got from Nicholas Hellen of the Sunday Times? Shocking. Out and out blackmail. So, being comrades at arms, us bloggers are all linking to the email to see if we can get it to numero uno in the Google listings.

Right enough of my waffling, I’m sure there are plenty of better things you and I should be doing. For a start I need to catchup on some blog reading, before embarking on some pre- “new job” reading… thankfully a quiet weekend looms!

Apparently decorations are supposed to stay up until 12 days after Christmas. Balls to that, this site will revert to a more subdued hue tomorrow. Similarly we’ve taken down our decorations. Back to the grind it seems.

But not before repairing the broken garden fence which we received as a new year present (at about 7.30pm on Hogmanay). Yes, that’s right, the concrete post snapped. Admittedly it was old and crumbling, and we do live at the top of a hill so it can be pretty exposed… but still, it was pretty bloody windy!

We ignored it though, and headed down to our friends house, returning home at 4.30am, lightly sozzled and ready for the New Year. Well, ready for bed at least…

The next few days will be busy for me, a few things to complete before I start my new job, and hopefully I’ll finally manage to shake off this bloody cold that has plagued me since Christmas Eve.

Anyway, it’s now 2007, time to look forward, and whilst we don’t make resolutions, we are both determined to continue with our ‘get healthy’ plans that we started in the summer. Needless to say we’ve regressed slightly… ohh ok, a LOT over the past few weeks, but I’m positively itching to go out for a run, hopefully at the weekend.

After that, who knows?

Here’s hoping 2007 brings people everything they desire and deserve.
