Taking the confusion out of technology.

Was it warmer or colder last year?

Does what it says; compares the temp to this time last year. It’s free and you can do some In-App purchases to unlock other panels like Rain weather etc etc. Only awkward thing is the Celsius update is in progress, so our Metric readers be patient 🙂

The World’s First Airborne Wind Turbine Brings Power to Remote Areas.

Altaeros has designed the BAT to generate consistent, low cost energy for the remote power and microgrid market, including remote and island communities; oil & gas, mining, agriculture, and telecommunication firms; disaster relief organizations; and military bases.

The BAT uses a helium-filled, inflatable shell to lift to high altitudes where winds are stronger and more consistent than those reached by traditional tower-mounted turbines.

High strength tethers hold the BAT steady and send electricity down to the ground. The lifting technology is adapted from aerostats, industrial cousins of blimps, which have lifted heavy communications equipment into the air for decades.

WordPress Requirements : PHD in PHP

Evil WordPress

So we started to use this WordPress thing and I tell you its a nightmare of note. Sure if you are a PHP coder or a straight A student in advanced PHP rocket science it would probably be a breeze . . . but there are a few things that I think are missing for a normal earthling (like me)

  • A function to go back to the top of the page after you have scrolled down past 32345 posts which took 237 hours and 42 minutes of hectic reading . . .
  • A way to be able to stop comments on what ever posts you want, oh, AND pages. It looks like ALL or nothing which is a bit retarded.
  • A font selector when typing out a new post?  really??  Even MS Windows text editor has that! and if my memory serves me correct so did OS2 Warp back in the 80’s
  • Why all the different linking type stuff? permalinks I think its called, what is that? I mean I almost linked my contact page to the Playboy magazine classified section, which probably would have been a lot more exciting than working out that the best thing on the links is to DO NOT TOUCH.
  • I did not even know Playboy had a classified section!!

I do realise that all of the above could probably be done, that is not the point here, it should be available for normal laymen bloggers like me.
And to Robert, I take back what I said, In my opinion setting up a WordPress site is way more difficult than setting up a Sage X3 or a SAP R2 multiple continent  corporate implementation 🙂
