Twitter apps

So Twitter is all the rage. It’s NOW! It’s happening, if you ain’t on it, you ain’t got it! It’s hip to be square!! Ahhh, except it’s not. I’ve tried a few Twitter apps over the past few months, some have worked well for me, others not, but the latest one I tried just seems…

[insert large cat themed title]

Reading time: 2 mins

That is a “large cat” not a “large title” that is “cat themed”. Although that would work too I guess… Mac owners the world over know that tomorrow sees the release of the most important new piece of software for sometime. Just after Apple have released record figures which see them now positioned as the…

I’ve mentioned Gifttagging.com before (over on the left), but it’s worth another look as they’ve recently updated the site and added some new functionality plus a little extra ‘polish’. Best new piece of functionality: If you have a login, you can now “Reserve” an item to save any duplication. This is a half-step towards an…

Damned lies and stats

Blogging malaise? Pah, easily solved. Check your stats! Except it’s not always that easy. Personally I’ve been using Extreme Tracking for quite a while now, but it’s not that reliable as it seems my “hit count” is always lower there than anywhere else. The Sitemeter site appears to be dead – although I’m sure I…

Just a quick note for anyone who uses HaloScan for their comments. You have probably noticed some differences in the appearance of your comments and there may be other glitches over the next couple of days as the BETA testing continues – including downtime, no email notifications and the like. The HaloScan forum is full…

With the latest Google tool – Google Maps – now live, I’m left pondering the approach taken by most of the large American software companies. Why do they always start with the US of A? Whilst they may have to suffer calls of anti-patriotism would it not make more sense, particularly for the aforementioned Google…

GMail

Reading time: < 1 min

I now have 50 invites for GMail. Does this mean that it is coming out of BETA? If so it augers well for the likes of Flickr, Kinja and all the other semi-permanent BETA web apps that are so popular. But is this what it means? On one hand it’s kinda obvious. They want to…

THAT'S why!!

I love it when it happens, especially as my muse seemed to have escaped me recently. Admittedly it did mean I was up until 1.30am but such is life. I know that when I get into that mode the worst thing to do is stop. What am I talking about? That ‘lightbulb’ moment, the fulcrum…

Just doing a spot of surfing before I head off to kill some brain cells watching TV when I notice Peter mention that he’d been add to the UK Showcase on Kinja (I’m somewhat amazed that I am too…) I clicked the link and spotted two flaws.1. You can’t easily tell all the sites that…

Still got a couple of things to sort here, I tried to add a stylesheet switcher but couldn’t get it to work, initially it’ll only offer the same look but with a bigger font size (for my visually challenged readers). I’ve shuffled a few things around, and you may need to refresh the page to…

Motivation

(Great, now I’ve got that Sum 41 track in my head… hmm quite catchy…) Tuesday night is Louise’s ‘night out’ with our friend Susan. They go shopping, go to the cinema, or just veg out with facepacks and wine. I’m left at home (thankfully). I usually have a few items that I want to get…
