Let's Hit The Ground Running…


After yesterday’s installation and testing of the WordPress engine I can now start adding content to the site. I’ve chosen a suitable theme, Silverlight, however the sidebar doesn’t quite work as expected (I can figure that out as I go).

There is lots of clever Web2.0 stuff out there to filter in and out content from elsewhere. Mashup is the key word. Yahoo! Pipes is one such gadget that I have implemented to take RSS feeds from sites I post on such as Flickr, StumbleUpon and

Making sense yet? No? Go Google web2.0 then.

I’ll even add some original content when I’m feeling creative enough.


After much time spent learning and fiddling with HTML, CSS, php, Perl and MySQL, We’ve decided to use a pre-packed solution for the site.

We’re now using WordPress.

Now we can spend more time tweaking the content instead of the presentation.

The old site stuff will remain (as always!) with some links in the sidebar to the more useful stuff.
