Breaking into open source

Posted by & filed under , , .

I read recently Shubheksha‘s blog post “A Beginner’s Very Bumpy Journey Through The World of Open Source” which describes her initial journeys into the open source world and reminded me a bit of some of my initial adventures into open source. (I even wrote a blog post ages ago — my goodness, literally ages ago […]

Frantic WordPress Theme — Update

Posted by & filed under , , .

OK, so I’ve decided perhaps it’s time I give my blog’s look a refresh. I looked around and found this WordPress theme called Frantic on WordPress theme website: https://wordpress.org/themes/frantic/. It had the right look I was after but was missing one tiny thing — a “footer sidebar”. Previously I was using the Intrepidity WordPress theme […]

Don’t Get Weirded Out by “Open Source”

Posted by & filed under , , .

I read recently Robert Lindh’s post on his blog about the argument he makes for re-branding the concept of “open source” and I have to sympathize with it. If you’re a techie you are quite likely accustomed to the concept of open source and probably use some open source framework or stack. In fact you […]

New Blog Layout and New Intrepidity Theme Changes

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I’ve bitten the bullet finally, and changed my blog layout. For those of you repeated visitors I’m sure you noticed, for the rest of you who are new to my site, it’s worth saying that the old theme has been on my blog since its inception — which is a few good years back, […]

(Disappointing) Review of My Blog’s Traffic

Posted by & filed under , , .

A while back I’ve boasted on this very blog about the amount of traffic it has reached — based on stats that I have pulled up from the Wassup WordPress Plugin. I have decided recently to have a closer look at the traffic — any blogger who’s taking himself seriously checks now and then on […]

Updates Services / WordPress

Posted by & filed under , , , .

OK so for a while I’ve been keeping an eye on who and what and how indexes my blog, trying, like all the other bloggers out there to get a bit more “traction” (I looooove Silicon Valley slang 😉 ) for my blog. Part of this, is not just relying on the standard Google or […]

The Sad State of Banking

Posted by & filed under , , .

OK, I’ll give you the fact that this is a pretty bold title! I’m not going to talk about the state of banks per se though, why are they struggling in the current climate and/or falling over — I am simply going to talk about the way the banks employees feel about working there (I […]

WassUp for WordPress

Posted by & filed under , , .

It’s not often I big up WordPress plugins or extensions, but this one caught my eye: WassUp. I’ve just installed it on my blog a couple of days ago and I am utterly impressed with what this little thing can do! I have got access to my website stats aggregated via awstats and webalizer, however, […]

Why do I blog so much?

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve been prompted recently by a few with regards to my recent blog entries as it became apparent that I’m blogging a lot and very often recently. It’s not because all of a sudden I find myself with so much more time on my hands – if anything my schedule has become busier nowadays! – […]

More Updates to My Blog Site

Posted by & filed under , , .

On top of actually upgrading my version of WordPress, I have actually checked every single plugin as well and made sure it is at the latest version — so now i have a fully upgraded WordPress installation! The only thing that doesn’t seem to work is TweetSuite — which sounded though very good at first […]

WordPress Upgrade

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been delaying for a while to upgrade my WordPress version — for various reasons including not actually having the 10 minutes required to do so — but finally I managed today to spend a little time and upgrade it and even tidy up some bits and pieces on the blog. You won’t see any […]

LinkedIn and Twitter Automatic Update

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Ok so this is getting intesresting — having installed the WordPress component on my LinkedIn page I now provide updates (automatically) on my LinkedIn profile every time I tag a blog post “LinkedIn” — and since I got the Twitter Updater I am providing updates automatically as well on my twitter — woohoo! So this […]

System Update

Posted by & filed under , .

For the less geeky of you who haven’t figured it out by now, there’s been quite a few changes recently on my website(s): First of all, my advertising/banners are now served via a fresh implementation of OpenX — and I can’t begin to tell you how much easier is to normalize <script> tags and <iframe> […]
