Nowt But Praise

Published by under General

I guess it must be official that I’m the webmaster for the lost revue. I finally got the a?
webhost sorted out and transfered the bands previous website to the new?
host.

So who am I praising? None-other than Google!!! Yes, thats right I want?
to say well done to the Google search engine.

At 16:52pm on 30th March the google engine visited the Lost Revue?
website. At that time the DNS hadn’t got as far as my computer. But not only?
had the google engine visited the site, the Lost Revue website was also listed?
as the top hit for “The Lost Revue” on the google search site… hows about?
that for a quick turn-around!!!!

Published by under General

I have almost officialy been taken on as the webmaster for thelostrevue.com. Now don’t get all?
excited, this doesn’t mean I’m going to be quitting my day job. This is?
purely helping out some *cough*aging*cough* rock’n’rollers get an online?
presence. But seriously, these guys are a good band that are starting to rise in?
the ranks of the UK music industry (I’ll post some links to reviews of them?
some time in the future.

They kept that one quiet

PHP5PHP5 RC1 has finally be released. Actually it was released on the 18th March. I haven’t had a chance to run it and test it yet as I’m kind busy at work and I haven’t got my systems set up at home yet. I shall, however, be testing it on the intranet system I’m developing at work to see just how much work would be involved to port it across.

In the mean time, I recomend that everyone heads over to PHP [dot] net and check out whats new.

New George Interpreter

Published by under General

GeorgeI know its been a long time in the making, but I have finally managed to get a working George Interpreter together that implements the full George language specification. I’m affraid I haven’t got any documentation together and it is only possible to download it in a win32 setup exe. But to be quite honest with you, its getting late and I want to get home.

This interptreter is written in PHP and compiles the supplied George source code to PHP before running it.

To download the George Interpreter you should point your browser at http://www.gringod.com/wp-upload/software/george/george_setup.exe.

A Pending Release

Published by under General

I’ve been working on a new piece of software to manage bugs in software.?
I’m curently running the software to manage bugs in a system I’m developing?
at work, and is designed for managing website bugs.

The system is written in PHP and uses PEAR classes and is built around the Mojavi 1.0 framework.

This is only a notice of things to come, as it still needs some?
development but I’ll let you know when its out there.

On another front, I’m working on a new GrinGod [dot] Com site, and also?
on another inter/intranet based media application but more about that later.

What was I doing at that time of the night, I was actually installing?
Win2k and Visual Studio.NET on a new HP e-pc that I have got my hands on. ?
And why would I be wanting that software… watch and listen, watch and listen?
- all will be revealed soon.

Foreign Adventures (Part? 1).

Published by under General

Hallo, I’m back again!! What do you mean you didn’t notice I was gone…?
what a cheek!!

For those of you that don’t know, I have just been on a long weekend to?
Iceland. Yeah, I know its a mad thing to do but what the heck, it was fun.

If you are looking at this and expecting a blow-by-blow account of the?
trip I’m affraid you’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer. I would have?
written this yesterday but I am currently snowed under with work that I?
should have done befroe I went away.

For this reason you are going to have to wait until I have got time to?
write it all up. But just to warn you, I will be writting it up a day at a?
time rather than all in one big go… so keep watching

In the mean time you should head over to Mozilla [dot] org and grab yourself a?
copy of Mozilla FireFox (Browser) and Mozilla Thunderbird (Email client). ?
I’ve been using them for about a week now and there’s no way I’m going back to?
IE (unless I have to for work). This incarnation of Mozilla is blindingly?
fast to load, unlike previous versions, and has got some amazing themes and?
extensions, including some REALLY useful stuff for developers.

I shall be posting information on my Mozilla set-up on my new?
development site at GrinGod [dot] co?
[dot] uk
. Please note that this new site is purely for development and?
therefore any goings on there are not real. And news posted, or pictures or?
anything are just for testing. The only real information available there will?
be my Mozilla set-up info.

Two Great Things and One Not So

Published by under General

This is gonna be damn quick, so here we go. Firstly I have found what at first sight appears to be a very good blog… this one is by Jukka-Pekka Keisala and can be viewed at http://www.jpkeisala.com/desktop/.

The other great thing I have found, thanks to Jukka-Pekka, is a visited countries world map at World66.com. This system allows you to tell it where in the world you have been and it will generate a map with your selected countries highlighted… GREAT!!!

Visited Coutries

Those of you that know me will probably be able to tell that the map it slightly inacurate… but what they heck, it will be correct soon.

Finally, the not so good thing, and this is rather breif, I would like to point out to those that have never been into the shop, Gruts in Guernsey is one of the worst shops for employee product knowledge. I went in to ask a few simple questions about some propular products. After the first two questions I gave up… needless to say they wont be getting my money. If you ever decide to visit Guernsey, please don’t waste your money in that shop. I beg you.

Shocking Shock!

Published by under GSX-R750

How gutted am I? I’ll tell you…. totally. I spent most of Sunday afternoon washing and polishing my bike so that it now looks the cleanest it has done for a long time. Once i’d finoished I decided to take her out for a spin to make sure the engine was dried out.

So I was riding along at quite a sedate speed (my speedometer cable is busted) a I started to think that my arse was starting to hurt a bit more than normal, and the back-end was feeling a bit rigid. So at the next set of traffic lights I bounced the back-end a bit….. only it wasn’t bouncing!!!! DOH!

It would appear that the back shock has given up on me :( I’ve got a quote for a new Nitron shock from Bike Torque Racing at ?295. The Nitrons are a UK maed shock, all hand built to order. Its a nice shock, the down side being that I’ll have to wait three weeks for it to be made and dispatched!!!

I think it is time I invest in a paddock stand, because with going away to Iceland and sailing at easter, theres no way I’ll be able to afford to buy the shock and get a garage to fit it… and its about time I learn a bit more about my bike.
