As with most of my blog posts, this one begins with the obligatory comment…
Wow, I haven't updated this in a while. I should really do this more often.
So here goes.
Thanks to a friend on twitter, I decided to work out how many films I've watched, both in the last year, and this year.
Now, because I'm coming to the ballgame late, I'm starting with a continually updated list of the films that I've watched this year.
The ongoing list can be found on my Movies Page, and if you want to see what I saw in 2010, check out my list on the Movies 2010 Page.
Also, if you'd like to make any suggestions for Movies that i should watch, drop a line in the comments.
I just upgraded to WordPress 3.0. No issues with the Automatic Upgrade (that I can see yet).
Seems pretty painless. In fact, I did it via my iPhone.
Next thing I should really do is upgrade/change my theme.
I don't care if you have an iPad, have fallen in love with your iPad, want to marry and have babies with your iPad…
IT'S JUST A COMPUTER!!!!
And before you say
"OOooo… You're just jealous that I have an iPad, and you don't."
No I'm not. I've used one, and DO think it is a really impressive machine.
I don't have an iPad cos I don't need one, want one or afford one.
I'd rather save up and get an iPhone 4GTS (or whatever it's going to be called), because that will be a much more useful tool for me.
I've piked on the WordPress plugin (well, it's on the back burner) for the time being, and just doing some other stuff.
One thing I've done is bought a funky new URL to make a shortener out of. So I spent some time on Domai.nr to see what I could find that was short, and still made sense.
Ok, so I haven’t written for ages… I’ve been busy… Yadda-yadda-yadda.
So here’s the deal. I came up with an idea for a WordPress Plugin. So I did a search for it, and Nada. I’m actually really shocked.
It’s a relatively simple idea, you just take the ?????? and then replace it with ?????? and there you have it…
Oh wait my WordPress NDA Plugin blacked that out didn’t it…
Oh, and there goes another idea for a plugin…
Well never mind…
I’m seriously going to try and talk about this more that I’ve posted in the past.
Ok, that freaked me out a bit.
I have a plugin installed that automatically strips out the CSS for my blog on CSS Naked Day. I just didn’t realise that it was now.
So that’s why my blog looks a little weird.
This is just a quick throw it out there post (yes I know it’s been ages (I have part written a few other posts in the mean-time)).
I’ve just added the the functionality of RPX: Instant OpenID and Data Portability.
So what does that mean? It means that you can use an OpenID account, or another Third-Party login, such as Google or Yahoo, or Blogger, etc.
This allows you to use this as a Login, for either Admin purposes, or so someone can leave a comment on a post.
Hoping to post some more soon.
I’ve just created a secondary blog griffmiester @ swin.
Why did I do that? Well, the logic was, this is my random blog, and that is my everything related to my uni subjects blog.
I know that for one of my subjects It was suggested to keep a diary of what I’ve learnt when, because I need to explain all this when I submit my portfolio at the end of the semester. Another subject has it’s own blog that we are supposed to write comments on for questions/comments about the tutorials and lectures. I could include a link to a site, and I’d prefer it not to just be my random stuff.
So here I am, now trying to handle 2 blogs. I’m not even sure that I’ve gone about it the right way, as I’ve actually installed WordPress x2 to be able to do it… If there’s a better method, can someone drop me a line.
Well I’m back at Uni for the 2nd Semester of 2008, and I’m going to try and get my blog back up and running again. There have been a few things I’ve kent to blog about, but haven’t got on to them yet.
So this post I decided that now I have an iPhone (that’s another post I’m in the process of writing) I needed to make my blog iPhone friendly. So how do I do that.
I searched WordPress.org and found the WPTouch plugin. I’ve installed it and it’s working well.
I’ve also added the WordPress Mobile Edition plugin, which means that it should now also work for other mobile devices (you know, the ones that aren’t an iPhone). As I currently don’t have a 2nd Mobile phone, I haven’t been able to test this to see how it works. If you do try it out, could you leave me a comment on this post, and evena link to a screenshot would be nice.
I’ll throw up some screen grabs when I can do this on a computer.
Do this on a computer? That’s right I’ve written this post on my iPhone.
And here are some screenshots from an iPhone that I took of my blog.
I’ll write again soon.
