Finally doing some housekeeping and updating some personal domains to use Lets Encrypt certificates for websites including this one. At the moment not bothering with certs for domain aliases as pretty much all of those are redirected to the canonical versions.
Aw. Surprised how sad I was to hear that Yahoo will be shutting down their Yahoo Directory. Even though I probably haven’t visited it in several years in the early days of the web it’s difficult to explain how important a site it was in its day. It’s really hard to remember the days before search engines,… Continue reading Fareweel Yahoo Directory

Scottish Lass Seeks (domain since 2001) has found a permanent home. Hamewith tae www.scottishlass.scot Ya beauty! I was so… Continue reading scottishlass.scot AT LAST!
Because I’m a web geek and am compelled to try these things, noticed that domain registrars were sending me emails to claim .uk versions of my existing domains. Apparently owners of .co.uk versions of a domain have Chief Baggsying Rights to secure the new .uk extension. So yep have made the move. Shorter = good…but… Continue reading scottishlass.uk um Yu .uk

I’ve always been meaning so sort out my menagerie of assorted external drives. Never really been happy with trusting precious family video footage to a single hard drive so seem… Continue reading “I think I need a hard drive to manage my hard drives”

Don’t know quite what’s happened to my brain recently but it’s started being able to take on and learn new things in a way that hasn’t been possible for several years. The poor health and illness of recent years must… Continue reading Lifelong Learning
Well it has taken a new gizmo for me to blog again. First evening with the Nexus 7 and we’re getting along famously. Can confirm that opening the box is like the puzzle round in the Krypton Factor. But first impressions are very good, damn it’s fast, scrolling pages is very smooth and without that… Continue reading Nexus 7 … Hell yes!
Back-up brain because I know I’ll forget this kind of thing. Was trying to target some Xcode projects to a deployment target of 4.2 and to a device rather than the simulator. Wasn’t getting them running, or rather they would seem to run an finish almost immediately. In the console entries like Fri Nov 18… Continue reading Going b-armv6-y, Xcode 4.2 and deployment target 4.2
Christopher Poole interviewed at Web 2.0 Summit 2011 Is it weird that I loathe and detest Mark Zuckerberg but like the sensible head on this other young net entrepreneur. I especially love his ‘diamond’ analogy for identity, in real life different people see different facets of the same person, different pieces we don’t have just… Continue reading Like what he said
