If you’re going to advertise search results…

You really should make sure they are there.

I just saw an ad on TV for a Honda Civic. Pretty good ad, big budget. And at the end the message was “search chase it to continue the story”.

So I did.

Nothing about Honda there. Whoops.


Cashing in

Saw this on the shelf today:


Really? Someone must have thought this was cool.


This evening I fired up this blog after not looking at it for over 12 months. I was ready (and motivated) to write!

Alas, something had broken in my self-hosted WordPress installation and the usual tricks of getting back in failed.

Not deterred, I downloaded the latest version from wordpress.org and uploaded it over the top of my previous install.

Do you think I took a backup first? Of course not! I am invincible!

And so, if you go back over any old posts you’ll notice there are no images left. They’re all gone. Dammit!

At least I could rescue my database.

So I decided that, due to the sporadic nature that I even look at this site, I’d move it to wordpress.com so I don’t have to worry about backups and updates again. At least that’s the plan.
