‘Ask Zawarhi’ — apparently not a joke

Noticed this piece in the news today … at first I was sure it was an April Fool’s Day joke, then I saw it was reported in December initially, and posted here on April 2 anyway. Anyway … “Ask Zawarhi” responses coming soon from Qaeda leader” WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Qaeda deputy Ayman al-Zawarhi’s responses ...

April Fool’s Day overload online

Woke up this morning with Triple J trying to tell me it was an hour earlier than it actually was, to the point that the Breakfast show didn’t start until 7am (instead of 6). This joke only lasted until I actually woke up — and it was pretty dumb I think, with no real elaboration ...

Yes! Finally! Now working with WordPress

Almost buy accident, I have suddenly got this blog where it should be, working as it should be. My blog is now officially moved from Blogger to WordPress, as I have wanted for several weeks. There will be some adjustments required still I’m sure, but it’s almost all good now. Seem what both Blogger and ...

Moving this blog to WordPress — go there for the new stuff

I am somewhere in the process of moing this blog to WordPress on its own server — now properly and accurately at stephen-turner.net. But there seems to be no end of problems to the import/export process, to the point that I don’t even know if it will happen properly.So I suspect I might just start ...

Frustrated

Frustrated because my blog isn’t publishing but I won’t stop writing on it anyway. Frustrated because I really don’t know why it isn’t working. Frustrated because I’ve setup a new site but I can’t use it yet. Frustrated because the import function in WordPress scan’t find my posts in Blogger. Frustrated because that just slows ...

Joss Whedon’s online comic book comedy musical! 1

Now that was a mouthful! Word from various sources is that Joss Whedon has written and is currently filming a short online film — an oddball comic book musical with some fairly well known actors and well known collaborators. Found this at the Whedonesque blog, best if I just let Joss explain in his own ...

Domains, servers and getting things right

At the moment no one can really read this even, so it seems a bit dumb, but I do want to keep up the habit. Either way, that shouldn’t last for long, as tonight I’ve set up a new decent web space account, and am setting up WordPress to go with it (where I can ...

Toys for big kids …

While it’s undoubtedly childish, it’s also incredibly fun … a guy in the US has started making custom weapons for Lego figures. Everything from world war 2 weapons to pulse rifles from Aliens and everything fictional and real in-between. Check out the pics at the Brickarms site or a Gizmodo interview with the creator. It’s ...

300 posts and other things that couldn’t happen soon enough

I noticed when I really got back into the blog at the start of this year that I was barely over 200 posts in the whole history of the blog. Now this is post 300, which is quite a pace — and I like to think they’re useful posts as well. My personal highlight has ...

Making and breaking

Now that I’m letting myself think I can afford a few things, I am thinking about how to move the PC from the loungeroom (where it’s mostly a media centre but terrible for the task) back to the office/sunroom where it can be used more usefully, especially by Sallie, who’s sick of a nine year ...
