Removing a Category from WordPress 3.1 RSS Feed

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

I filter a category out of my WordPress RSS feed because it’s all my tweets from the week.  I want an archive (mostly for myself) but I don’t want to blast anyone following my RSS feed with them every week.  I’d been using code like this in functions.php in my theme to screen them…   […]

One Page Can Make a Difference

Monday, August 16th, 2010

The original Knight Rider used to end with the refrain of Wilton Knight’s last words to Michael… One man can make a difference Tonight I thought I’d share how one page (and a tiny bit of PHP code for WordPress) made a difference to my site.  At least its made a difference for Google.  I’ll […]

I think I need a few extra hours in the day – if I did each of the following would probably be its own post… Having finished a fascinating book on illegal gambling in the UK in the ’50s I started reading the first volume of Michael Palins’ diaries on Saturday and there a great […]

Just Messin' Around with Vue 7

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I’ve just spent the evening messing around with Vue 7. Nothing really to show from tonight but I made the yet to be titled picture above last night. I’ve resized it for the web from a larger, print quality render and cropped it a little too. The ship is from Cornucopia 3D and the Water […]

Did the Cliche Move for You?

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

I wouldn’t be up this late but I’ve not been well and I can’t sleep. I was just doing the final rounds of checking on the flat when the whole building shook. At first I thought it was a Fire Engine going past outside at speed but from the way my inner ear was acting […]

Tonight I have mostly been playing with…

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Tonight I have mostly been playing with the php5, the Zend Framework and the Gdata API. Nothing to show yet because I’m getting to grips with it although the impworks web site is now entirely php5 driven.
