Just Created an Autoresponder…

By Techie No Comments

I just created an autoresponder for my old email addresses. I tried to do this a while back with gmail but it wasn’t right.

Now it is.

It works.

Hopefully now people will stop sending stuff to those old accounts.

More Changes

By WordPress No Comments

So I launched WordPress multisite y’day and its been interesting!

There have been quite a few weird things going on but i reckon i’ll be able to fix them

One of the big things is the file structure. It’s made me realise that i may need to rejig the whole site and reorganise the lot. This is always a pain as it usually means all the media gets unlinked and the site falls over If i can avoid that then i’ll be happy.

I do wonder though how easy it would be to export the multisite sites from one WP istallation to another server. If i wanted to move a blog for instance.


2 weeks in: my HTC Desire Review

By Blog, Photos No Comments

So I’ve had my new HTC desire for.2 and despite my dodge typing on the touch screen keyboard…well that’s just me really!!!

Best bits.

  • Google integration – Seamless -All I had to do was enter my google account name and password and it did the rest.
    • Gmail
    • Contacts
    • Calender
    • Maps
  • Twitter & Facebook clients that are usable.
  • GPS Stuff
    • Google Maps
    • Google Turn by Turn navigation – proper Sat Nav yo!
  • Android app store, It notifies you of UPDATES and there are various Games and Applications but notably:

I have to say:

this thing is awesome!

Is it better than an iPhone? I would say yes it is and i don’t base that on my blatant disregard for the iPhone. Lets face it, The iPhone is one of the biggest innovations in technology in years but i do need to remind people of this post which was the SPV M700 which was a HTC device!

HTC have been doing the whole touch screen PDA handset for a lot longer than apple and as a result they do some of the groundwork alot better. This Desire is more customizable, its faster, its more versatile, it’s cheaper by a long way and I didn’t have to sell my soul in to a crappy new poorly priced iPhone only contract!

I’ve been blown away with this handset and what its capable of. Usually within a few days I’ve got a handset sussed but this has been overwhelming at times and I’m still not 100% clued up on all of its capabilities. There have been a few glitches;

  • Alarm clocks.
  • Start-up apps.
  • Battery life

But these i’m looking in to and updates should sort them

The battery life is an issue but i was aware of that when i bought the phone.

All round – its incredible!

Happy Father’s Day

By Family No Comments

My Dad is awesome.

My Dad could kick your dad’s a**e.

My Dad is Chuck Norris in disguise.

My Dad is the strongest man i know.

My Dad is the wisest Man I know.

My Dad is awesome.

I think most of us grow up wanting to be just like our Dad’s. I certainly did. I grew up with a man who set a great example on what it meant to be a man. He was always around, He always let us know that he loved us. He was fun. He was firm. He was my Daddy.

I quite often find myself doing or saying things like he did. I find myself turingin in to him in so many ways it’s sometimes kinda scary…

I’m proud of that though.

If i can become even an ounce of the Man he has been and still is then I’d be a very happy man myself.

So I’ll say Happy Father’s Day to my dad and also to any man who is a father. Well done! Keep at it. You have what it takes…
