Connected On The Move

I finally figured out how the e-mail works on my mobile phone.

I could always receive messages on my phone but I could never reply or send.

It was an off the cuff remark on a forum post that triggered the lightbulb moment. I can only send via my ISP’s mail server if I am connected via my ISP! Obvious with hind sight !

All I have to do is send all my messages via the Orange mail server.

Works a treat!

Fantastic Site !

It’s not often I find a site that is worh shouting about but:

Invite Share this site is all about sending invites out to those closed beta sites.

I got a pownce account in about 30 seconds !

Jousting

Had a great day out in Linlithgow today.

Historic Scotland organised a medieval re-enactment weekend this weekend.

On display was: Jousting, swordplay, quarterstaffs, and general fighting.

The weather stayed dry and we had a great day out.

About Turn !

Benidorm 2007

Not my first choice in holiday. My father in law took unwell so we had to fly out at short notice to be with them.

The care received in the hospital was excellent, very friendly and very professional.

Didn’t do a lot of the normal “holiday” stuff but of course I had my camera with me so you can see my Benidorm Photos on Flickr.

It felt really weird, half of the population was half my age, the other half were twice my age !

It was also way too hot for me, over 35degrees most days, there was even one evening when it was sitting at 30degrees at midnight; not pleasant.

Everyone is home now and slowly improving, except for me, back at work and slowly going mad, so back to normal it is !

Emma Makes The Newspaper

Check out today’s Daily Record pages 30 and 31.

Alternatively you can read it here.

Firefox Plugin – PicLens

I’m not usually one for shouting about software, but I have just installed the PicLens addin for Firefox.

This addin allows you to view all of the images on a web page in a full screen browser with slideshow functionality.

Great for Flickr junkies like me !

Web 2.0 Blah Blah Blah

I’m not sure that I “beleive” in the whole Web 2.0 social everything hype; but I’m not shy to try things.

I’m currently investigating FaceBook and Twitter.

If everything goes to plan then creating this page should appear in my Twitter.

Here Goes !

I have created the page http://www.rossgoodman.com/social-networking/ to track my progress. Continue reading Web 2.0 Blah Blah Blah

Addictions

I recently had the pleasure of a trip to the local casualty unit. (Only took 2 1/2 hours so a flying visit)

Previously I’ve been amused, as a non smoker, at the folks at the front door smoking.

This time I could hardly get into the building.

The front door hoards now have two competing factions, each as large as each other and both feverishly feeding their insatiable addictions.

The “older” crowds puffing away on their cigarettes.

The “younger” crowds texting away like crazy.

The funny thing is that; despite the fact that these people are obviously ill, they are willing to stand outside in their pajamas in horizontal rain to feed their respective addictions.

Comment Spam

For some reason, one of the posts on here is attracting some spam comments.

I’m fiddling with the settings slightly to try and block them with the least impact, not that there are a lot of “valid” comments so far !
