Time for a redesign. Hand me my credit card!

Posted in Kooky Projects, Site News by The Editor | Tags: , , , ,

This mere little blog has been festering unloved since the dawn of late January 2010. I figured it was time for a redesign so I set aside everything else on my to do list, brewed some coffee, grabbed my wallet, rolled up my sleeves and went in search of a ‘pro theme’.

A ‘pro theme’ is an term used for a professionally designed, paid-for WordPress theme. The term itself can be altered to suit the product you are trying to find a theme for. Drupal, Joomla et al. Read more »

Back in the saddle…

Posted in Site News by The Editor

Life took an unexpected turn for the ‘rather busier than I was before’ tangent in recent weeks, leaving little time to attend to my little corner of the Internet. Lots has happened since my last entry back in late October 2009, I’ll spare you the long-winded details!

Look out for more irreverant babbling very soon!

Cast your eyes to the right of the page…

Posted in Site News, YouTube Channel by The Editor | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Over the past few days (rather, when I have had the time/energy/will) I have made a few changes to the site template (if you have never scrolled to the very bottom of the page before, you will not know this site uses a self-modified version of the excellent Journalist WordPress theme).

If you take a look down the right hand side of the page layout you will find I have made a few text-based changes and also added a few external links. Before anyone waves a handkerchief in my face, no, none of the links are referrals in an attempt to make money from the site’s five minutes of popularity so do feel free to click away minus malice. I’ll be brief in my explanation of each new external link I promise! Read more »

A quick site tour and a few choice words

Posted in Site News, YouTube Channel by The Editor | Tags: , , ,

I’ve toyed with pod/video casting before albeit rather whimsically. With a fresh outlook and a renewed sense of joy and vigor I decided to crank things up a notch and introduce occasional videos to this here little website.

I have embedded my first YouTube video below (think before you click, you may have nightmares or die of terminal boredom after clicking play).  Not being a big fan of YouTube due to the poor video quality often delivered to my poor eyes, I have taken a stance of only creating and uploading high quality video. Opening and closing title cards were created using Paint.NET and hopefully you will agree convey the branding of the website over to my video content.

This first video gives you a quick tour of the site and gives you a little more insight as to what this site is all about. Please feel free to comment or send me an email, I would appreciate your feedback!

You can find future videos I post right here on the blog or visit my YouTube Channel for more information.

A nice change, and another story that is not quite as good

New design

I don’t even need to confess, the date stamp says it all, I’ve not updated this site in forever. I apologize.

However upon embarking upon such a monumental feat as to write a new blog entry, I decided to couple it with a site makeover. I felt the old design wasn’t working out so I went for a different theme (plus my ever-ongoing tweaks) that I feel is much better suited and easier to use.

So what has been going on for all this time? Well, offline it’s been a very busy 5 or so weeks. I haven’t even had time to put any effort in to the music project at all, that has ground to a complete halt. Although with the schedule looking rather lighter in the coming weeks I should have a bit more time to dedicate to it.

I recently moved in to the world of the netbook by purchasing an Acer Aspire One. Would you believe it runs Windows 7 Ultimate astonishingly well? Windows 7 aside, the netbook and a copy of Notepad++ should provide ample opportunities to scribe new entries whilst on the go (or while the good lady is using this notebook to look at photos on social-networking websites).

I’m a keen follower of human rights issues, especially when it involves freedom of speech and privacy issues. I am closely following an issue close to home where a local ISP is looking to implement Deep Packet Inspection technology. The general public have been asked to provide input on the matter and I intend to submit my comments soon on the matter.

All of this should pack my schedule up quite nicely for the foreseeable!
