Embedding Spotify

March 24th, 2014 · No Comments · Music, Technology

A friend has suggested that, if I mention a track or album on Spotify I should embed it in the post. Previously I have sometimes put a hyperlink in though often I haven’t bothered. I thought I would try installing a plugin and see what it does. This is just a test of that plugin […]

Baby Got Back

August 23rd, 2011 · Comments Off · Technology

Strap in and brace yourself, because this could get boring very quickly. Keen-eyed regular readers will have noticed the unavailablility of this site for a few days and wondered whether it was the latest victim of Anonymous or Lulzsec or a Tory conspiracy. Nothing so exciting: just technical problems. I won’t describe the problems in […]

I always forget.  I expect I will forget next […]

Kindness of strangers

June 26th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Life, Technology

I have been having a bit of a frustrating time with WordPress lately. After not writing anything at all for ages – all my recent thoughts have been short enough to fit on Twitter or Facebook – I wrote a post today and when I hit ‘publish’ I did not get the normal message about […]

Does it look faster here?   Do pages load any quicker?   I have tried installing a couple of plugins for WordPress: GZIP Pages and WP Minify.  Unfortunately the pages rendered all wrong but worked again when I disabled WP Minify.  Maybe I could fix that with lots of work, but I can’t be bothered with all […]

Since moving to ANHosting I have got lazy…  I used to install and update WordPress manually, downloading the files, unpacking them to the right place on my PC and then copying them up to the web server, but ANHosting include Fantastico as part of their package and that does it all for me.  The only […]
