Google sent out an email today to Feedburner users with the ominous subject, “Upcoming changes to Feedburner”. It’s Google so my first thought was that they were about to shut it down. No, it’s not quite that bad, but they are shutting down parts of the service. Starting in July, […]
The Irish Blog Awards in Pictures
As I may have mentioned once or twice before, we were at The Irish Blog Awards on Saturday night. Here are a few photos. They’re after the jump because there are 70 there and I’d hate to see them load every time someone loaded the front page of my site! […]
Skimming the web
The way I see it, there are three stages to web browsing: The web is new. You visit the blogs of friends and colleagues every day. You use Gmail or Yahoo mail and check in on your favourite sites a few times a day. It quickly becomes tiring visiting websites […]
More blog details from Google Reader

Not everyone likes you
The best place to be is where people either love you or hate you. Not so great in inter-personal relationships but it’s super when you’ve got a product that you want people to use and maybe buy. WordPress is there. There’s a vocal group of WordPress haters out there, but […]
Bite size entertainment
It’s rather sad that I prefer to click on the Dilbert cartoon feed rather than the one for the author’s site in my news aggregator. After being offline for most of last week due to a dodgy internet connection I’m still playing catch up and trying to fill in the […]
Irish Blog Awards on March 3rd
The second Irish Blog Awards will take place on the 3rd of March in Dublin. Damien wants to know if you’re going so leave a comment on his post if you’re interested. I have yet to make up my mind but there’s already a number of comments left and it […]
