Do Not Type Like This

Published on April 22nd, 2013. Last updated on January 21, 2019.

So I Randomly Got Sent A Message Over MSN That Was Meant To Close And Stop Working Over A Week Ago When We Started Typing Like This And Fuck It Is Annoying To Read, Slow To Type And Overall A Pointless Exercise To Even Bother With As My Friend Would Put It.

I Am Sure You Have Seen Online On Some Forum Or Blog With People Doing This But I Do Not Get Why. Are People Just That Lazy (well Actually It Took Me More Effort To Do This Than To Type Normally) Or Are They Germans Learning English And Do Not Understand We Don’t Need To Capitalise Nouns?

... so we survived

If you are reading this then you have access to the World Wide Web so listen up. We are the last few of the human race that has survived just like the Mayan said would happen. As you know either a black hole, the Sun blew up, Planet X hit us, zombies has returned, Jesus is here or the Internet isn’t working and civilization is on the edge of dying completely.

So the first thing you got to remember is to find a place to stay. Remember the most important thing to find is to get access to the World Wide Web so you can post online that you survived. The second thing is to want to make sure you take as many photos as you can of any weapons, any food caches you have online so people know it is safe to come to you.

TFYP on an iPad

TFYP on an iPad

Tablet PCs are a very funny thing, they have been around for so long and no one seen a point in it but suddenly when the Apple iPad was released that everyone suddenly finds a use for it but honestly is it any good?

Well being one to always hoard new technical stuff that when it first came out “main stream”, I got myself a cheap Android tablet and while they was fine for a couple of things they basically sucked. While that put me off tablet PCs for ages, within the last few months I got myself a more “high-end” Android tablet which is what this article is based on.

Latin has seen better days

Published on April 1st, 2012. Last updated on April 1, 2012.

Now it is quite rare that I find something on the World Wide Web that is worth looking at and today I am writing about one them. So someone I follow on Twitter discovered a new interesting project called “Dotsies” and after having a look at it – I have to say that I am very impressed. The idea behind the thing is simply to look at replacing the Latin script for reading. As you may know that the Latin script is now over 1000 years old and it has served it’s time well.

Having originally being designed to allow people to easily write, it takes up too much space today when devices are getting smaller and smaller. Dotsies is little different to how the Arabic numbering system replaced the old roman numeral (such as how we write 12345 and not MMMMMMMMMMMMCCCXLV).

Finish the darn site

Published on January 7th, 2011. Last updated on January 7, 2011.

In these modern ages that everyone and even their dog now has a website. Many of these takes the form of a web log much like this one, a forum, a simple HTML page (I figure we could throw in social network profiles as well) and that does bring out a slight issue – it is making the World Wide Web look like an unfinished, lazy job.

The reason I say this is quite often that people will start a website and it would never get finished without the intent of ever finishing it. Developing websites can take ages to do as first there is deciding what to do the website about, design, coding and things on those lines but what I am “moaning” at is people whom never maintenance their website after it has been developed.
