My public web server is actually on a machine under my desk at home. I have a business ADSL line to my home and last weekend I was LLUed (Local Loop Unbundled). The good news was that the line was upgraded to ADSL 2+. The bad news was that the ADSL PCI card in the gateway PC is too old and another modem was required. That arrived Tuesday. After much fiddling outgoing internet was restored by yesterday evening. Finally today incoming routing was restored to servers. The outage was inconvenient (and having no internet for a few days made me shakey) but the current figures suggest that there’s a five fold increase in upstream bandwidth which will make things appear far zippier.

Integration #2

If all goes to plan. This post should pop up on my LiveJournal. This is all courtesy of the Live+Press plugin.

Integration rocks!

I have been integrating my public blog with my public gallery and twitter thanks to the Coppermine SC plug-in and the Twitter Updater plug-in. This allows me to insert images from my Coppermine Gallery in to my posts, such as this photograph of the snowy moors I took earlier this week, and twitter the publishing of a new post complete with tinyurl.


The North Yorks Moors in December.

Next I will look at how to automatically post to my Blog when I upload images to a new album.

Now its time for the gallery

I have installed Coppermine and started uploading my photographs. Over time I will install and write scripts to integrate my blog with the gallery. For the time being you can find the gallery at:

Since my Mother reads this to find out what I’ve been up to nothing to naughty or controversial will ever appear here. I have LiveJournal blog which is friends only and I will leave finding it as an exercise for the reader!

First post

I'm not slacking off, my code's compiling!

It about sums it up really (from the great xkcd web comic). I’m sitting here waiting for a big build to get to the place where I want it to purposefully break, so that I can extract some files, and so I decided to finally get my blog back in to use again. So here’s the first post. What’s the purpose of the blog? Well mainly general ramblings; a way that my family and friends can keep up with my activities as I jet around the world; and talk about private projects.

So there you are!
