I had a bizarre problem the other day – well, these things are always bizarre when you don’t know the reason or solution – with Gmail.
Whenever I put 10am in an email, it would hyperlink it to http://10.am/ which brings up a slightly random website.
10.30 a.m. would be fine, as would 11pm, etc
Turns out, Gmail was doing it’s usual autolinking, like it’ll do to “example.com”: little did I know that “am” is actually a legitimate domain identifier, and it was reading my time as a domain name!
I’ve just launched a new website for a new business venture of mine – producing limited edition prints…
Do have a look and let me know what you think!!
It’s been really quite exciting to start this up – guess I’m officially grown up now
And of course, it’s all ColdFusion driven. But of course.
Well I’ve finally got round to it – this site now has a shiny new design!
It’s much more focused on what I’m actually spending my time doing these days – web work, specifically ColdFusion related coding.
I managed to finally move to CF8 in the process, and whilst I’m still ironing out some kinks, everything seems to work so far. The biggest problem I had with the move was a change in MySQL versions, with some date fields spitting out binary data instead of timestamps, but thankfully it had a quick solution – a small driver related issue.
I’m definitely going to try and get some more code excerpts up on here – I’ve been a bit slack in the number of posts!
More to come…
If you’ve not seen the amazing work done Iain Tolhurst & co. down in Reading, now is the time to check them out:
I’m still trying to work out how they do it – farming with no pesticides & no animal manure (hence their “stockfree organic” status) with everything seemingly in balance.
On top of it all, he’s just about finished building a boat – the Pinky Ketch – hand built from locally sourced wood which has blown down in storms. see here
Jakoti Hand Shears are now available in the UK! If you’ve not tried these, they are superb; one handed and extremely sharp, they seem to cut through anything. We clear our allotment with ours
