All Good Things

Posted on Thursday 27th November 2008 at 00:00
In September 2006 I launched my blog after several weeks of intense coding effort. It was born out of the bordom that followed the completition of my previous web project, and I was proud at the time that it was entirely a project of my own coding.

Over the following months I gradually added to it and improved it in ways that many bloggers thought were stupid. After all, it was taking me days to code what others were adding in minutes, thanks to plugins.

Over the years the site grew and grew, and as it did so, it began to pop up on the radars of hackers. Ever since then I've been the victim of regular hacks, which have wrecked the blog and cost me countless hours to repair. It is for this reason that I have taken the painful decision to end development of my blog as it is, and switch over to the Word Press content management system. This will offer me a range of exciting new features previously unavailable to me, as well as the security of water tight coding that won't let people hack me every few days.

The site will be offline for a while whilst I convert to the new system, but I hope to be back before long with a fresh new design and a blog that everyone can enjoy for a long time to come.

Thank you very much for the support you have shown me over the last 2 years.

Life continues to be busy, and today is no exception, with hour upon hour of lectures and seminars over the course of the day. For this reason I'm going to keep this post short and just focus on telling you about my new website. Those of you who were reading in June this year might remember that I made an impulse purchase of a new domain name, on which I proposed to host a site showing myself in a professional light.

Well, the other day (ok, about two weeks ago now) I finished the main build of the site and let it go live. There are still a few small bugs to fix (the search box doesn't work) but the site is there and therefore I feel I should promote it.

At some point I'll make a point of adding in lots of links to the new site in appropriate places on the blog, but for now, if you fancy having a look, please click through to and have a nose around.

If anyone has any comments about the site, positive or negative, please use the contact option to drop me an email, or comment on this post, as I'd love to hear from you!

Well, time for me to go to another seminar, so as the guys at Warner Bros used to say:

That's all for now folks!
