Widget. It’s got a widget. A Widget it has got.

May 24, 2008

Ah yes, widgets.  The love of almost every blogger and I am no different.  So to match my new theme I am introducing a few new ones.

Like the ‘add my blog as a widget’, the ‘CFC’ widget and also one that might not be as apparent at first.  It’s an icon generator for commenter’s on the blog.  If you take a look at a couple of the comments made you will see that each commenter now has their own individual monster icon that will stay with them whenever they post a comment.  The monster icon is randomly generated when a comment is made.  I suppose it is about time I make my thoughts a bit more user friendly.  I am lazy and have a couple from the generic Widgetbox and have installed a couple on the webserver myself.

There might be more widgets or changes to the sites layout over then next few days as I try out new things and generally try to improve the eye candy and usability.

Live Chat

Well someone gave me the suggestion so here it is, well its working, some of the finer details and aesthetics need to be ironed out and worked on. It can be found here and in the links and pages sections.

The idea is to set up discussions at certain times for people to participate in, it will be slow going at first of course with little or no turn out, but hopefully over time it will pick up.

Well, all I can say I guess is enjoy and look out for updates on times of meets and discussions!


My Blog

September 7, 2007

Well I think its about time I did something useful with the blog. After spending the time moving and redesigning I think the content needs to be looked at too.

There is only so much I can write about my mundane life that people, including myself want to read. So where do I go?

Well like most people I have my interests and I think some people would, well maybe would, like to read my thoughts on certain things. They include being vegan, the enviroment, technology and computing and blogging. So again, where do I go?

Ok, here’s the plan:

I read alot. I read alot about the things that interest me and motivate me. I intend to use these articles, sites, daily and weekly publications to post things of interest here and give my comments and opinions on them. So away we go….
