1. Aral Balkan: Realising I‘ve come full circle to having a hand‐crafted static site, just like I did in 1999 :) http://t.co/cCVgd751 DayGlo colours FTW.

    aral you were into popup ads then, right? :D Or is that tripod’s fault?

    Always nice to see people’s early work :)

  2. Oscar and I just watched the last two episodes of Captain Scarlet. Our conclusion is the same as that of The Hunger Games: they should have left off the end bit and concluded at a dramatic moment.

    The whole “and it was all Symphony’s dream” is infuriating, and the last episode is a pointless clip show in which the only thing we learn about the Mysterons is that they own(ed) some old warehouse somewhere. Ah well, on to Stingray next, I suppose

  3. Doing a mass find-and-replace operation on the Perch Blog app so I can have more than one running at the same time. If you want to do something similar, here are the strings you need to replace:

    • blogyourName
    • BlogYourName
    • perch_blogyourPrefix_yourName
    • PerchBlogYourName

    And then obviously rename the .class.php files and activate as you would any other app.

  4. It must be amazing to be a squirrel and really be able to experience the world in three dimensions. We only really get 2 and a half.

  5. Earlier, aral wittily quipped:

    The CMS I use for my personal sites is called a file system. You might have heard of it.

    I disagree with this premise. Useful and easy as filesystems are, without a wrapper like Jekyll they don’t manage content (resources), they manage representations (typically HTML).

  6. Back in Devon after a great fake-birthday weekend in London. Ate far too much cake, and watched more Captain Scarlet than probably healthy.
