It’s nice when a blogger says something short and to the point:
As long as I’m messing about with the video capture on the ixus, one of the nicest things (well, one of many many nice things, but one that stands out in a particular way) about having a young child is the way they fall asleep on you.
Just got this from Demon, my ISP of choice for a number of years:
First things first–If you’re one of the many people who come here from A List Apart please read this.
I’ve just noticed the access logs filling up with calls to “permalinker”–this is a pretty major oops as I’ve always believed URIs should be permanent.
I had so many bits, bobs and backups tied into my blogging engine that it was taking me forever to migrate safely to Movable Type. A negative side-effect of running what was a truly nasty hack in the first place was that the whole site got bogged down.
The stuff that I think several people out there get a kick out of reading on Donkey tends to form in my brain like scum on pot of soaking chickpeas. When I first started posting, the system was so fast that it covered its clunkiness and I merrily skimmed stuff off the top of my brain and dumped it in these pages. Very often, the best stuff wasn’t fully formed stories or reports but little quirky fragments and the best way to whack these online was in the form of lists, only for reasons too dull to explain, making html lists on the old Donkey engine sucked.
