  • The Color I want! « Notion Ink
    Want an Adam (well, yeh, duh!). Then vote now for your favourite colour. Hels chose bright blue, which seems particularly unpopular. I'm surprised at how conservative voters are in their choices.

  • BBC News – BT to roll out fibre broadband across Cornwall
    We have FTTC here which I can gain access to as I'm on a business tariff. The cabinet is only 100 metres or so from our door, so we don't get too much loss over the copper cable. But others in our road are connected to the exchange itself, nearly two miles away, and report terrible connection speeds. You get what you pay for. And I'm not expecting FTTH any time soon here.

  • BBC – Newsbeat – ‘My details appeared on ‘porn’ list’
    Interesting. The girl in this article doesn't seem to be wearing any clothes. But seriously, recipients of these letters from ACS:Law are in an invidious position as it is impossible to prove a negative – which is why most will simply pay the £495 just to make them go away.

  • BBC News – Relate survey suggests mid-life crisis ‘begins in 30s’
    I'm not sure that any of this is surprising. With pressures from work, high expectations of children, increasing responsibilities to aging parents, it should not be surprising that people aged 35-45 are feeling under pressure. I'm not sure that those pressures are any different from those experienced by previous generations, although, in today's high-speed world, perhaps they are felt more keenly. In my view, just about every age in life has its pressures – for example, when you are four-and-a-half, the pressure is to finish your toast before you get dragged out the door to school.

  • Blogging like it’s 2000 // katy lindemann // seemingly unconnected
    You see, blogging isn't dead at all. I've resisted Twitter largely because I don't want to be limited to 140 characters, although it is not often that I write longer pieces these days. Strangely, my blog has mutated into a linklog, even without the change in platform. And now I see Darren making a plea for me to go over to The Other Side. Perhaps I should try to have a presence in both forms – I can't deny that I haven't been considering it for some weeks, maybe even a couple of months. But Katy's post makes me think even more that "real" blogging is alive and well, and might just be going back to the way it used to be when it were all fields around here.

Normal programming will now be resumed

Well, the RSS feed is now fixed, so hopefully those people who never the visit the site will now be reading something. Unless they unsubscribed in the months that it hasn’t been working on the basis that grayblog was dead. Ho hum.

If you haven’t unsubscribed, then you’ve missed loads – the tenth birthday post, lots of links and, um, er, well, that’s all really. Must do better.

RSS update

The RSS feed for comments is working.

The RSS feed for posts is not.


UPDATE: I’m trying the WP forums (fora?) – no good. But I have some help on the 34SP forums, so we might get somewhere with this.

FURTHER UPDATE: it seems to be working now. So hello again to all the RSS readers – maybe say hello?
