Questions Answered #1

Reading time: 3 mins

In a desperate effort to gain some weird form of validation, I stole an idea for a blog post and begged my readers to ask me a question. And they did. The buggers. Now I have to answer them. Question 1: Keith (my blogless* mate) asked “4.56 AM or other similar times that should not…

Money for old rope? Or is it possible to blog full-time? Last year Jason Kottke tried it, couldn’t make it stick. Now John Gruber is heading down the same road. The reason I ask is that yesterday’s somewhat tongue-in-cheek post seems to have… well not quite enraged but definitely “irked” a few people somewhat. I…

WP Plugin Idea

May already exist. CBATG (well I did but only found one ‘unpublished’ plugin). A plugin that will control the publishing of posts, only releasing one every X days. For example, I could write five posts in one night, hit publish and forget about them. The plugin would publish the first one immediately, then set the…

Mike proves that the easiest way to get comments for your post is to change the design. Why do we find change so hard to take? ~ My downward trend has continued. Whilst only a measly 1lb lighter than last week, I’m quite happy. Especially given that last night I had a big stir fry…

Anyone know of a free UK based service that will allow the receiving of a fax on the web or via email? One time only need, not urgent. ~ Sun dances. You’ve all heard of rain dances and can picture native american indians (or red indians as we used to call them) dancing round in…

Stuck. Paused. Diverted. I have a couple of new projects to work on, a couple of projects that are stuck at the “hard bits” (both in theory and in workload) and I’m managing to avoid them all at the moment. Filling my time researching, taking care of other small tasks. I’m partway through “Getting Things…

Technorati

It’s been a while since I added Technorati tagging to my posts, has anyone used them? Found them helpful? I’m hoping they are providing a few good pointers to other related posts and so saving me the hassle of finding and posting the links myself, thus giving me a CBATG meets Technorati = web-based lifehack…

I see a lot of things online that I would like to purchase. Unfortunately a lot of them (increasingly so) are in the US, and I’ll be honest and say that I’m not going to pay almost the same again for the postage of an item. So here’s the idea – club together with other…

I’m rattling through my To-Do list for today, and I remember a comment I saw in the HaloScan forums last night. Jeevan pointed out that HaloScan had, justifiably, been nominated and I started to wonder how many of the Bloggies nominees used HaloScan. That lead me to ponder which blogging tool was the most popular…
