To WWW or not to WWW

Just read this interesting post from John Chow. While the content of the post is nothing really new to me, it’s interesting because more and more people should be aware of its subject matter. It deals with the matter of domain names and whether your web server should accept www.domain.com and also domain.com without any… Read More »To WWW or not to WWW

Sick as a parrot

Well, I’ve been off work all week so far. Not due to any wonderful relaxing break nor DIY escapades or garden indulgences but rather I have been confined to bed with what we in the software business would call a composed illness (yes, I’ll have one from the top shelf, one from the middle and… Read More »Sick as a parrot

A new proposal in Dublin is set to see drivers of SUV and other large vehicles pay twice what a “normal” car owner pays to park outside their own home. A wonderfully green move by Dublin City Council – I’m sure that they had no profiteering agenda in mind at all when this was proposed.… Read More »SUV = EUROs

MT 3.34

Just upgraded my MT install this morning. No nervous moment like the last upgrade. 🙂 Not really much of a difference between 3.32 and 3.34 but it’s nice to have the current version running smoothly.

A Phone

For some reason this post went missing between last night and tonight <<scratches head>> Luckilly I keep an offsite back-up in WordPress 🙂 If anyone has commented/trackbacked on this then please comment again as I have a feeling that the database was reverted today for some reason. Maybe Steve didn’t like my opinions on the… Read More »A Phone

For those not in the know, Barcamp is a relatively informal event that takes all the starch out of the collars of other pretentious conferences.
