Okay – this is one of those ‘I need your help’ moments… In slotting in the last few pieces of the jigsaw puzzle for my client, I am looking at integrating PDA and mobile phone technology. Of course, the Blackberry exists, but it is cumbersome and ugly. Does anyone have any suggestions as to other […]

Yuch! I have a horrible head cold. It attacked me yesterday — swept over me. At 1pm I was fine, by 6pm I was in bed, three layers of clothing and the heating on, shivering. I’m so glad I have an understanding, supportive wife – she kept the family routine going while I collapsed. Now […]

It seems that any ‘out of office’ auto-reply set up on the company’s email client only gets sent to in-house addresses. Which means that if my friend Peter […]

At the start of my third week on this project and I’m almost there… A couple of minor things to sort out and then I am going to put together a Director presentation (because PowerPoint doesn’t let me do the funky stuff that Director does!) One of the issues to be sorted out is whether […]

When I want to follow a link from someone’s blog I have to […]

RSS and quasi-blogs – rethink

Hmmm… I tried putting an xml file on our server, then having BlogExpress find it. No such luck, which makes me think there must be some underlying code that sits on a webserver and doesn’t sit on a fileserver (I’m not a techie so please forgive me if I got this wrong). So having flat […]

As part of the strategy document I’m putting together I needed some info on companies who blog. I’d visited all the usual suspects (most helpfully the ever-amazing Constantin and Jeremy Wright), but also remembered Shel Holtz had posted about a European company who gave their new starts a blog as part of the new-start package.
