Twitter

Posted on Thursday 10th April 2008 at 00:00
Just a quick one to let you all know that I've added a Twitter feed to the side bar on the blog. You'll find it beneath the 'Recent Entries? box and above the 'Recent Comments? one, over on the right hand side ->

For those who don't know, Twitter is a mini-blog social networking site where users must answer the question 'What are you doing?? in no more than 140 characters. It can be updated by SMS text message as well as at the Twitter website, which can lead to some fantastic 'Tweets? by people who venture out into the real world.

Whilst I'd be the first to admit that Twitter is the cyber equivalent of Marmite (you either love it or you hate it), (I hate it) (Marmite that is, not Twitter, obv) even if you don't want to sign up yourself, you will now be able to keep an eye on what I'm doing from the comfort of your very own computer.

If you want to read the rest of my Tweets or add me to your Twitter contact list, my Twitter profile can be found here.

P.S Many far more interesting bloggers also use Twitter, so if you get bored of me, have a wander over to their feeds and see what's happening.

Go on, you know you want to ;-)

Funny Friday Saturday – Jeb’s Jobs

.....And at last the silence is broken once again! Oddly enough, the lack of posting over the previous 3 weeks or so wasn't actually my fault this time. Some Twunt decided to hack the site's database and managed to delete the entire site, much to my incredible annoyance and dismay.

I would have written a long, rather rude post then and there about the sort of people who mess with other people's websites in this manner, but sadly the site was in such a state that I couldn't post a damn thing. I had backups of everything I needed, luckily, but using them to repair the site took the best part of a week, and ever since then, every spare moment has been spent improving the backend operations, in the hope of making it easier to fix the problem next time it happens (which I have no doubt it will).

Anyway, we are fully operational again now, and most of the improvements I wish to carry out are either completed or nearly completed, so I thought it was time to post again.

I thought I'd share with you the first in a long line of fantastic animations by the wonderful guys over at Weakend Productions. This one has been around for a few years now, but in case you've not come across it before, it is definitely worth a look at. If you have seen it before and you are anything like me, I'm sure you won't mind watching it again anyway :-)

This isn't a very good copy of the video I have to say. I think someone did a dodgy recording job to get it onto YouTube. The original, high quality version can be found here.
