Following the initial joy and elation at discovering we’ve got yet another chance to express our electoral opinions I’ve updated TweetYourMP.com to now include candidate information for the forthcoming 2017 snap General Election, and I’ve even managed to secure yet another dot com – TweetYourCandidate.com includes the details of over 3,000 candidates standing in the 650 […]
A while ago as part of my Kickstarter habit I excitedly backed a space program. For the princely sum of $10 I get to control a satellite that’s about the size of a coffee machine for 100 seconds. Sadly Fortunately in this instance the satellite’s functions are limited to sending tweets from space and taking […]
Well I always like to celebrate a New Year in style, so to celebrate 2014 (the busiest year for this website ever) I’ve finally upgraded my legacy Supanames web package to something a bit faster. The really-quite-handy-I-can’t-believe-it’s-free Uptime Robot tells the story better than I can, but hopefully things will start to work a bit […]
Here’s a foldable.me of me: Foldable.me is a kickstarter funded, make your own Mii style character app. For $11 you get a nicely printed push out cardboard model of yourself. Although my hair isn’t exactly that colour, I do have that jumper.
Last week I built my Dad a wordpress-based website so he can blog about Organ music, woodwork and Raspberry Pi powered woodwork pipe Organs to his heart’s content. Have a look at www.stephen-taylor.me.uk – I’m encouraging him to keep a blog!
Right, this is slightly bizarre. My @kimondo avatar picture, which has already been blasted into orbit on the space shuttle, is now starring in a series of youtube water pistol shootouts. It seemed to make sense at the time. Thanks to @firebox for the feature. Here’s hoping for some freebies.
I’ve been having a play with twitter’s @anywhere service that allows you to add twitter functionality to any website. There are functions that turn @usernames into links automatically, but interestingly it’s also possible to edit the ‘sent via’ bit of text that appears next to your tweet. For example the shamelessly self publicising: The via […]
I’ve been doing a bit of blog linking so here’s a post for the benefit of Technorati that I own this blog. I’ve also discovered I can create a google profile and sell my soul completely to the company that ‘does no evil’. 57ZQX56N5ZX3
Well it’s a bit late but here are my new year resolutions for 2010: Go running. Been meaning to do this one for a while. My Nike+ avatar is looking decidedly bored. Lose some weight. See point 1. No I’m not going on a diet. Write interesting blog posts more often. I’ll freely admit that […]
An interesting thing happened to me a few evenings ago. I was at one of the iTunes festival gigs in the roundhouse, which featured the eclectic line-up of Mumford and Sons (yawn), the Temper Trap (not bad) and Stephen Fry (yes, that Stephen Fry). Stephen Fry was there in a warm-up capacity presumably because of […]
