Online Backup for WordPress

Backing up of data on a computer is one thing but backing up of a website such as this one and it’s database is another. Websites do crash and even with the best security are vulnerable to attacks from hackers or to host server failures. Whilst these events are extremelyRead More

Two great addons for Gmail users.

Say you want to set up for an email to be sent at a certain time, in the future, but you don’t want the hassle of having to remember or do this manually. Say you’re a control freak or a pretend one and you really need to know when yourRead More

Get Gladinet Cloud

The word ‘cloud’ tends to cause attacks of anxiety these days. If that’s you, stay clear. I don’t wish to be accused of forcing anyone to read anything that causes stress. Gladinet is a service that is ahead of the race. “What race?” you groan. It’s the race to syncRead More

When you’re right

I must thank my colleagues on Facebook and other electronic forums for stimulating me to put together the list below. I was also driven to think and write by responses to ‘Of riots in banana republics’ on Facebook. Over the last year or so, I’ve been observing how people comeRead More

Thought for tomorrow

“The history of madness is the history of power. Because it imagines power, madness is both impotence and omnipotence. It requires power to control it. Threatening the normal structures of authority, insanity is engaged in an endless dialogue—a monomaniacal monologue sometimes—about power’.“ – Roy Porter in A Social History ofRead More

I’ve been so impressed with TIMELEFT3, that I’ve purchased four licences for the full version!! Auction addicts on Ebay can also benefit from this big time. This thing will watch your fav auctions like a hawk!! LOL. Timeleft3 may look complicated to some, but I assure you that it isRead More

Paying to be ‘me’ – affording our discomforts

It has been rather interesting thinking about this. What is it to be ‘me’? How do I pay for that? What I mean is that each one of us (extrapolating from myself) has a fairly good idea about our likes and dislikes. So we gravitate to certain things, and weRead More

Wrongly accused

Amazingly (about 20:00 2008-09-07), I’m contacted by email, by a colleague I had not seen or heard from for 28 years. In the first two emails. I’m told that I’ve abused some child in some forum, by cussing the child. Naturally when you get this kind of thing you thinkRead More
