Watch a robot draw a photo of Charlie in sand. Just one of the amazing things in the Chrome Web Lab exhibition at the Science Museum in London.
I finally have an iPhone, so I can take photos and post to ridey.net from just about anywhere. Of course I could already do that with the iPod, minus the photos. So here’s a pic I took this evening. If you can see it and are reading this, it works. Maybe, just maybe, this will put new life into this sadly neglected blog.
Go on, take a tour. See if you can spot anyone you know. Watch the seasons change from winter to summer in the click of a mouse. But I’m not telling you where our house is. And note to Google, this isn’t Redhill.
We’ve just launched our mobile edition of ridey.net. Check us out on your iPhone, iPod touch, Android or even your BlackBerry.
So against my better judgement, I decided to upgrade the newer Mac mini (which I’d only just got this blog moved to after months of technical grief) to Snow Leopard. Of course it broke the blog (MySQL to be precise). I just can’t be bothered trying to fix it right now so I’ve moved the blog back to the old Mac mini, which, eventually, managed to fix itself, sort of. Confused? I know I am!
So exactly one week after I moved this blog from the old Mac mini to
the new Mac mini and got it working again after two months of head scratching, Apple releases a software update that fixes the PHP bug that had caused the whole wrong date/broken blog fiasco in the first place. Thanks, Steve!
Can I publish to this blog using the WordPress app on my iPod while drinking a latte in Starbucks?
Have I managed to fix this broken blog? Looks like I might have done it. Yay!
We are experiencing technical difficulties here at ridey.net but we’re working to fix things. Seems to be some kind of MySQL or PHP issue. All the posts now have the year 0000, even this one I just posted.
The whole blog broke, most likely after a recent Mac software update. Managed to get it back by upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, but then funny things started to happen. First a bunch of posts were missing, then they slowly started to reappear as if by magic.
Likewise the On ridey.net links on the right-hand side of the pages disappeared. Then they too reappeared. At first I couldn’t get new posts to show up on the site, now suddenly I can.
Maybe if I wait long enough the year 0000 problem will self-correct as well.
Hope so. Otherwise this may take some time…
Oh, and now the webmail isn’t working either. Sigh.
