Mid-October Musings

Just a quick post to remind everyone I’m still here, and make note of a few things that have been happening over the last week or three.

My New Temple

Firstly, for the geeks out there (you know who you are) and perhaps those with a keen eye, you may notice that is again ‘’ (as apposed to ‘’). Without going into details (which would only be stating the obvious for the aforementioned geeks, whilst boring the rest) essentially I have moved web hosts… again!

This time however is set to be permanent - that is to say I’ve paid for two years worth of hosting upfront. With the £/$ exchange rate as it is, it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss, and now means I can host sites on up to 5 different domains.

My new hosts are (mt) Media Temple. You may have seen them mentioned on a few well respected sites, and if they’re happy, I’m sure I will be too.

Although based in San Francisco, their famed level of customer service and support seems to be no myth, so hopefully we should be spending many happy years together. As to my new web space, it’s fully furnished with loads of cool features so this no doubt means a lot of playing around to come (i.e the new custom 404’s!)

Light Entertainment

I feel I might as well mention the Walsall Illuminations, having seen them last Saturday. As £5.50 goes, it is all too easily wasted - definitely an event for the under 10’s. The magic just seems to be lost when your 24 - well, just a little bit of excitement maybe… er, no - I’m still thinking £5.50!


Last but by no means least, mention of this coming November and December, both shaping up quite nicely. The weekend of November 13th looks set to be spent with some nurses in Bristol (it took me all of zero seconds to consider this journey!) before moving further south to London to see the Communicate Exhibition at the Barbican, followed by a few days free from the vision that is orange. December sees the official Glebe Re-union - a bloody good excuse to get pissed and of course many a rounds of ‘I have never’ - better get some practice in. Finally, the 23rd is the OrangeVision Christmas party - and you just know its going to end in embarrassment!

It were only £4.50 for the lights! I dunno what difference this makes, it was still crap. But you paid a big fat £zero anyway.

You may need to turn of 'Show friendly HTTP error messages' in Internet Options if you are using Internet Explorer - bloody typical!
