Recently, over at leisa’s site, I bemoaned the fact that most “web” events and conferences that take place in the UK are centred around London. So imagine my annoyance when I discovered, today, that there is a BarCamp happening in Edinburgh at the weekend. The day AFTER I made plans to visit family and friends…

MT licensing – more

Reading time: < 1 min

I read this post at “dive into mark” last night, and whilst it’s MT specific, the general point is valid across a lot, if not all, web applications. Then I read, at Fembat that Six Apart has responded. Good for them I say. Until I read this: “The single CPU usage statement was not intended…

(Completely the wrong quote in the title (above) but I’ll damn well abuse my site anyway I see fit…) Why your Movable Type blog must die Excellent. I love this kind of ranting nonsense. Somewhere in there he is making some kind of sense. However the urge to reach over and slap him is almost…

I’m not using MT so haven’t had to bother with all this “Avoid Comments Spam hack” like the one in place over at A Blog’s Life. Unfortunately it is now stopping me posting comments to some sites. Am I really blacklisted? Little old me?

OK been working at home for a couple of days now, and motivation is still pretty high. I’ve got a list of things to do that aren’t all related to work and I think I can make the most of having to sit on my arse for the next three weeks. Work-wise I’m getting through…

Writing to reach you

So I’ve got a new digital camera (found the ON button so all is well, thanks Gert). Obviously I will soon be dazzling you all with my profound images, and that, in turn, means I need to find some where to display them. Not being a MT user I will need to use my own…
