With the release of Textpattern 4.5.0 I’m taking the opportunity to update and modernise this site, both on the admin side and the design/build of the site itself. I may well ‘start again’ with Phil Wareham’s new default theme.
While I expect this to go reasonably smoothly, there may be a few glitches over coming days. Bear with me, but if you see anything that isn’t working, let me know in the comments. Thanks!
Update: I’ve decided to improve the site step-by-step rather than with a ‘big bang’ approach. Hopefully, less disruption that way ;-)
I like to run a few personal websites and really enjoy writing articles for these. The articles are not about web-related technical stuff but describe things I get up to in my spare time. I guess this is a bit of a ‘diversion’ for me and one way to get away from my 9-to-5 job as a freelance web developer/designer.
One of these websites is Clive Goes Cycling …
I’ve bought quite a few domain names in the last ten years and also created websites on many of them. Some of these have been personal projects where I had an idea for making millions on the Internet (like we all have) but, no surprise, they failed in that respect. I’ve made some pocket money with Google Adsense on a few of them so that’s been good but I won’t be retiring from my day job as a web designer/developer any time soon.
One thing that I’ve found difficult recently is reading interesting articles outside of my usual working hours. So, I’ve been looking round for apps/websites that would make reading easier for me. That’s when I discovered Readability which is a website that makes it easy to convert any web page into a clean, distraction-free, reading view. You can also save articles for later with a browser plug-in and sync the reading list across all of your devices. It works great!
Last week I went to the Port 80 Web Design Conference (Twitter) in Newport. The conference was organised by Joel Hughes who wanted to have a web design conference in South Wales. Great credit to him for deciding to do something like this – and then doing it! Here’s my take on the conference.
