This post may not interest you in the slightest, the main point is that you shouldn’t notice a thing but it may be quiet here for a few days in the near future. I think, after four and a half years, through Blogger Pro, the Google buyout, the redesign and all the early day issues,…

Blogger again

Reading time: < 1 min

I’ll stop after this. Business Plan. What is it and why did it prompt the new ‘revamped’ design? There is a lot of focus (rightly) on the new look and new features (and changed features). But where now? Keep adding features for free? Really? When you are taking on Moveable Type and have been, seemingly,…

Reading feeds

Lockergnome’s RSS Resource is chock full of information. So much so that I’ve not really taken much time to get to grips with both the site, and RSS in general. Yes I have an XML feed but as a Blogger Pro user, that’s really just a few clicks and and a filename to handle. If…

Bye bye Blogger Pro

I’m guessing this will be news du jour. Google have canned Blogger Pro, well not canned it completely as I’ll still have access to some of the advanced features, but you’ll no longer be able to upgrade to the Pro version. In return for my hard earned cash I get a Blogger Hoodie which, given…

Seems like a new version of BlogThis has appeared too… if you use it you will find (or soon find) that once you have posted, the little window stays open and gives you the option of editing your posts (which then resizes and takes you to the main Blogger page… Might be a Blogger Pro…

Ohhh and I’ve been on the ‘New Blogger’ for a week or so now. Very ‘nice’ but still lagging behind Moveable Type as far as features go. However I paid for Blogger Pro and I’ll support it for a while yet. Just wish there was more info about what is in the pipeline. Ev? Hello?

Not that I’m counting but that’s all the sleep I got last night. Hence I’m knackered and can’t really be bothered doing anything. I’ve struggled to do anything productive work wise, and the redesign has stalled (no thanks to finicky CSS mind you…). So it’ll be some telly and then bed methinks. Ohh and I…

Blogger Pro

Well it seems like the Blogger guys turned on payment by credit card in February and it’s taken me this long to find that out. So I’m now a fully paid up Blogger Pro user. Not that you guys will notice much, in fact bar the lack of permalinks for any posts before today, you…

Paying for stuffI’ve been on a bit of a spending spree recently. I’ve long been a subscriber to various ‘ezines’ and of course there are a few tools that make publishing this very website possible. I also use, and have used, some pieces of shareware for quite a while now, and all in all the…

Proper induction at gym today. Time to find out exactly how unfit I am. This is followed by a game of 5-a-side football. Another chance to find out exactly how unfit I am. Needs must , but I do question the sanity of playing football in this kind of weather. Hydragenic has updated – all…

waferbaby ~ fusion. Join the fusion. I mean if an artistically challenged, clam handed goof like me can have a go, why can’t you? Walked to the station this morning, about 25 minute walk in the pouring, no deluging rain (you know what I mean, right?). It’s amazing what you think about and it really…
