I’ve finally got around to uploading my new theme for the site. I’m quite pleased with it so far, and I’ve had a bit of a move around as well, so some of the pages have moved around too.
I briefly turned the comments back on here a while back only to receive a flood of spam comments. So I’ve turned them off again. This is a bit of a problem as things aren’t very interactive really.
So instead you can always talk to me on twitter or even facebook if you want to. I suppose I’ll eventually figure out a good way of sorting out the comment spam, but to give you an idea of the ratio, there have been roughly 600 comments, or which less than 50 are not spam.
I know it’s a bit of a cliche really, everything is about apps now isn’t it. You just can’t get away from it really. Even so, there’s now an ‘Apps’ menu on the blog. What does it mean? Well it’s more for web apps that run on the site really, and nothing to do with iOS or Android apps at all.
So hopefully this section will expand over the next few months with some more interesting apps arriving. We’ll see. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m clearing out recordings from FIRe (my fav iPhone field recording app), so expect a bunch of recordings in the next few hours. Some of them are quite big though.
I’ve been doing a little housekeeping or re-organising to be more precise. Trying to make things look better and make more sense in terms of layout. So if things appear to be moving strangely or aren’t where you expect them to be now you know the reason why.
I’ve been messing around with Dashcode for a few days, and I have a few ideas and plans of things I might make, so you may see a few things crop up over the coming weeks which will add a little bit more fun to the site.
I just enabled web app mode for the blog using iPads. So if you view it in mobile safari on your iPad it will come up as a web app and can be used in just that way. Hope that’s useful.
I’ve been a user of ‘Things’ for Mac and the iPhone for some time now, but during that time I’ve increasingly become less and less content with how the desktop and device apps work. It got to the point where the whole thing just ceased working as a task management system at all.
It is a shame really as Cultured Code are a nice company and they’ve been promising lots of new functionality for a long time, it just hasn’t arrived as yet. Also, compared to a lot of other apps ‘Things’ is a very expensive solution, which is one of the reasons I’ve held off moving to a different app / system.
Anyway, I’ve moved to Toodledo and it is working out really well so far.
Having said all that I just read this post at the Cultured Code site on their cloud sync solution. Let’s see what it looks like when it finally comes through.
