A note on the blogging of photos

Posted by on Dec 30 2005 | General Ramblings

I did write this explanation before, but blogsome crashed and it got lost, which annoyed me greatly, especially as the post was a minor rant about blogsome in the first place.

When I post pictures from flickr, or blog from my phone, blogsome adds a \ before each ” which messes with the code, breaks the link, and makes it look like I can’t type for shit.

I’ve known about this for a while, so any pictures you’ve seen up here I’ve gone in and corrected the code manually. For the time being, there will be a delay between my posting a pic from my phone and being able to get to the internets to sort it out.

The problem appears to be the blogsome is using an old version of WordPress. There have been a couple of wordpress updates since, which have rectified this, but the guys who run blogsome don’t seem to be upgrading. Or, for that matter, explaining to all the people in the forums if and when they intend on upgrading. This is fair enough I suppose, given that the hosting is free, but there are lots of other free blogging sites around, and WordPress have started their own now.

Soon, I shall be moving to a new home all of my very own, so I’m going to stick with blogsome until then. In the mean time, you’ll just have to be patient with the links.

Posted by on Dec 29 2005 | Crafty things

I’ve learned how to knit in the round, which means in a circle, all in one go, so you can make socks and the like. I’m great, me. (Thanks to mum for showing me how and d for calming me down when i lost my temper with it). Now i’m going to to unravel this and start on a bag instead.

Winter Pimms

Posted by on Dec 27 2005 | Delicious Things

Served with warm apple juice. Delicious, spicy and very tasty. Warming and festive, a great alternative to hot port for the winter months. Plus the alcohol makes being home that little bit easier.

Update (23rd Dec 2006): This seems to be a really popular post on the blog. Winter Pimms is indeed delicious, and I really do recommend it as a winter drink. Most of this blog is about delicious things that I’ve eaten, books that I’ve read, and things that I’ve knitted. Stick around, you might like it here.
