300 Posts

I noticed after posting last night that I now have 300 posts or articles on this site. While the oldest posts were written in August 2006, it would be unfair to say that this has been a continuous blog stretching 12 years. About half the posts have been made in ...

No Internet

It looks like most of the Falkirk area has been taken offline last night at about 7pm. Grangemouth refinery was out, along with lots of ATMs and fuel stations but most importantly, my house and therefore home server was taken out.

I am not sure if I am going to ...

An Apology to RSS Feed Users

On Friday evening, I changed the script that I use to update the site. The new script is much more efficient and faster, however it caused the RSS feed to be modified in such a way that my feed reader thought that every article was a new article and reimported ...

90 Days

So my daily posting streak lasted 90 days.

Last night when I got home, we ended up doing the evening routine in a different order and we swapped over who did the various tasks. As a result, I completely forgot about writing and publishing a post. Annoyingly I have been ...

Blogging in a Different Timezone

The result is ...

After digging around, the only place that I found jQuery ...

31 Days

This is the 31st post I have made in as many days. One full month of posting something every day.

I am not sure how much longer I will be able to keep this up but in any case it has been a good run. I have managed to write ...

The Return of the Comments

I have decided to add comments back to this site. They were removed when I switched from wordpress to a static site generator (pelican) and I:

  • Couldn't be bothered to convert the few existing comments
  • Didn't want to mess around with comments on a static site setup
  • Didn ...

Why am I doing this

If you are following using an RSS feed or look back at the dates published articles, you will notice that historically I have managed short bursts of relativity frequent blog posts, followed by long periods of silence.

Recently I have started trying to post something, anything, daily.

The main reason ...
