Wanted, dead or alive!

Posted February 26th, 2008 by Rachel

Well I’ve always liked to think that I am useful in some small way (my mother always says she’ll find a use for me one of these days ), and so when I one of my forum members posted a link to what looks like an interesting waste of a few minutes, I just had [...]

Where does Bob live?

Posted February 24th, 2008 by Rachel

JackP over at The Pickards posted recently about this PepsiCo ad, made by a group called enAble, deaf members of the PepsiCo workforce. The ad was shown during a commercial break at the Superbowl, and what I love about it is that it not only is it an excellent example of a company utilising the [...]

I’ve been tagged!

Posted February 22nd, 2008 by Rachel

I’ve been tagged – whatever that might mean… Is it a game of tag where the one tagged is now “it” and races around the playground madly, looking for someone else to tag? Sort of, but with blogs – and it’s like tag on steroids because you have to tag 6 people. Phew! That’s a [...]

The artist formerly known as

Posted February 18th, 2008 by Rachel

If it’s good enough for Prince, or “The Artist Formerly Know As”, or whatever he’s calling himself these days, then it’s good enough for me. I use a variety of different avatars in various places across the web, some match whatever name I go by in that particular establishment (I have a variety of names [...]

People live inside my head

Posted February 17th, 2008 by Rachel

People live inside my head. No, seriously, they do! Come back! Don’t back away from the keyboard as though I’m some crazy woman! (though I probably am) For as long as I can remember I’ve had the urge to write. When I was nine, my headteacher at junior school, Mr Keating, had an accident. He [...]

The wonders of the web

Posted February 16th, 2008 by Rachel

Somewhere I’ve got a copy of Tim Berners-Lee’s autobiography, “Weaving the web” – the “inventor” of the world wide web. It’s a fascinating read if you’re a geeky type, all about how the web came about and required reading for any true or aspiring geek. TBL had a vision of a worldwide network of computers [...]

What’s with the neon blue space-ship?

Posted February 13th, 2008 by Rachel

If you’ve hovered over the blog header when you’re not on on the front page…*waits a moment for you to try it now if you haven’t already*…then you may have noticed there’s a gorgeous little neon blue flying saucer that says “go home” at the side of it. The “go home” bit means if you [...]

On disability

Posted February 13th, 2008 by Rachel

I recently got involved in a debate on a forum about disability, my response to which actually forms the basis of this blog entry. The debate was around whether having a particular medical condition, in this case IIH makes you disabled. One forum member did comment that a simple yes or no would have sufficed [...]

Woo hoo! I didded it! (and a rather nifty PHP include menu)

Posted February 12th, 2008 by Rachel

It feels like ages since I’ve done a site from scratch – just lately all I seem to have been working on is re-designs and re-brandings, so it’s made a nice change to get back to doing some original design work, and this weekend I finished off a one-page sample for a client. The basic [...]

I wish I knew how to quit you – 2

Posted February 11th, 2008 by Rachel

Nope, not another ramble on about Brokeback Mountain – this one’s about my employer’s dimwit IT dept. Every day come time to go home, I start shutting down apps in preparation for switching off my PC (wouldn’t want to be caught by the energy efficiency police leaving a monitor or something on! *gasp*) and everything [...]
