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.

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 […]
