Summer is Over

Hello. So. Here we go, 6 weeks on from my last post, I’m only now just getting the chance to write one up.

It’s been an interesting period. I turned 30 last month and followed through on a goal to quit smoking the day after. It was tough at first then it got easy pretty quickly. There was a break from work included and I had a proper chance to enjoy the scorchio weather… such a crazy year we’ve had in Britain. We’ve actually had seasons instead of rain & rare openings of sunshine!

About 4 weeks has gone by after that break and I’ve spent a lot of that time on improving the webpage layouts. Everything has been changed… and I’m happy with the result! I added this as a milestone on my timeline as this is the point where I need to turn my attention to content. That content isn’t just tech blog posts though, it’s also;

#– Update/add more links & code to tech pages.
#– Finish writing historical timeline posts.
#– Update web stats posts.
#– Future web blog posts.

Anyway… Blah Blah $Blah! That’s my recent ramble of things for the journal. Fix list as always below;


Fix List

Now, my fix list has changed a bit since last time…

To be fixed
#– Get Disqus comment system in-line with post widths.
#– Pictures don’t open in a new tab when clicked on blog post loop thumnail images.

#– Add labels (tags) to all old tech posts.
