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.
Sugarbutties – a pottery painting studio in the Chester/North East Wales – now up!
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
Happy New Year to all!
Early 2008 should bring about a complete rehash of this site (possibly without the blogging, we shall see…) – stay tuned!
