Out With The Old, In With The New…


…I guess. As you can see this site has gone through a total redesign over the last week or so. I would be lying if I said this was a) planned, b) desired, c) finished.

An Oxite’ing Time


Is it time to move away from WordPress and use Microsoft’s new “content management system” named Oxite? It probably isn’t yet, in a few years maybe, depending on community uptake and customisation of the service.

Read Write Web on the matter.


Update Update Update


Again, a post which I potentially promised not to post like this again for 6 months, well I lasted 2 since my last update. Anyway, an update on why I’ve been so MIA recently and not updating my blog / reading my feeds / spamming on Twitter, Jaiku, Friendfeed etc.

There are three simple reasons for this, in chronological order:

1) A lot of my posting is done through Nokia Lifeblog direct from my N95 8GB. To make this work on WordPress you have to add a wonderful script which PhoneBoy wrote. I have recently upgraded my WordPress version to 2.6, and the script no longer worked properly, all the images were rendered at the wrong size and looked strange so had to stop posting until my PHP expert buddy takes a look for me.

2) I have moved house, and with a busy work schedule have been unable to do much whilst at work. BT are being slow in installing our Broadband, so looks like I wont be back fully online until Friday. That’s not long now though!

3)This is more of an update on point 1, on my image problem when posting from Lifeblog, the problem has got a little more terminal. I updated my N95 8GB firmware, to the latest V30 version and now when you click on “Post to Web”, “Send” Lifeblog crashes. Meaning that I don’t think I will ever be able to post from my mobile again. This is a great disappointment to me, I have been looking into other solutions, only thing I’ve found is Wavelog. But everything I’ve read on this says its useless? By everything I mainly mean this post by All About Symbian.

Any ideas on cures for points 1 / 3 would be hugely appreciated. Otherwise, thanks for your patients and hope you continue to read whatever rubbish I put up.


WordPress Weirdness


So yes wordpress is being very weird. Just posted the football related post and it came up with some very strange bits of formatting, even though there was nothing but text showing in the code section. Things like having only 2 words on a line (one at each end of the line) and the text not wrapping at the end of the section resulting in the text continuing underneath the sidebar.

Will keep an eye on it!

Also, wordpress related, desperate to find the widget/code which allows you to add your social media presence to the blogroll, and adds the cool pictures relating to each site. Maybe this is only VOX you can do this on?
