New Blog: Think Halal

Loving the new incarnation of Adnan’s Think Halal blog.

“think halal is deliberately devoid of description and context. It’s a cross between ffffound! and notcot and it’s sole intention is to provoke.”

Goodbye Movable Type, Hello WordPress

I defected to the Ivy Heath Posse, well, WordPress.

For the first time in years I designed a new website layout and trying to import this into a workable template in Movable Type was too much for my tiny brain. So I switched to WordPress which still took me a few hours but at least it wasn’t impossible. The archives still need some work but it’s more or less done. Phew.

Welcome to the new site!

Update: Archives have now been fixed.

Movin’ On Type

Trying to design templates in MT4 is like wrestling with Russian dolls. Widgets inside modules inside templates inside a cuckoo clock. Had this been 2002, when I had more time on my hands, I would have fought on but I’m tired and may be ready to say goodbye to Movabletype. Yeah, I said it.

Hi WordPress?

Meanwhile, a rather unconvincing transexual on Jerry Springer is fighting for her man who has a peroxide blonde mohawk and terrible dress sense. More importantly he keeps referring to her as a “him”. That’s just rude. Jerry, Jerry!

I’m incredibly excited about the fact that I now have broadband.

You know what would be really great? On-line instruction manuals. For example, I hardly ever keep instruction manuals for electronic goods. Clutter are they. But then, uh oh, I need to know how a certain feature works on my digital cordless phone and I’m pretty much buggered because I threw out the manual ages ago.
Solution: log on to the manufaturer’s site, find the instruction manual (pdf or html version) for that particular model of phone and ‘flick’ through it. Or I could even download it onto my hard drive for future reference and have a folder full of manuals for all my gadgets. Without the clutter.
It has probably already happened….

Best of the Web

The teenage fansites are still the prettiest and most eye pleasing sites out there.

Blatantly copied from Harrumph! I thought. At least we admit it they thought.
