Thoughts on Google Chrome

Posted October 3rd, 2008 by Rachel

Now I’m not normally one for installing and using betas willy-nilly; they’re usually bug ridden and unstable, and I have quite enough of that just working on a computer with Windoze installed on it, thank you very much! When I read the new Google comic book on the development of the new browser on the [...]

Keeping it clean

Posted September 27th, 2008 by Rachel

No…this isn’t about keeping smut and pr0n online, or keeping your computer dusted and not covered in grubby finger-marks, but about keeping it clean and free from any nasties like viruses, spyware, trojans and such like – commonly referred to collectively as “malware”. Last week I had a problem with my laptop which I suspected [...]

Goodbye August

Posted August 31st, 2008 by Rachel

Well, it’s goodbye to August. I’ve no idea where it went to. Come to think of it, I’m not entirely sure where January, February, March, April, May, June, and July went to either! It’s been a busy month (hence the lack of me or Bliss around here recently) and I’ve been off on my travels [...]

Posted July 25th, 2008 by Rachel

I think I’m probably behind the times on this one (just a tad, considering it was invented in 1998!).

More apologies

Posted July 19th, 2008 by Rachel

Okay, so I really was intending to post a bit more. I seem to have got a bit distracted with a lot of forum maintenance though recently – damned thing’s practically a full time job! On the positive side, I did it! Got to the bottom of my inbox and replied to all those emails [...]

eBay and the creative process

Posted April 2nd, 2008 by Bliss

Okay, so “WTF has eBay got to do with the creative process?”, you’re wondering. Good question! What did we do before eBay came along? I’m not just talking about buying complete tat, rubbish we don’t really need, because there are an abundance of “bricks and mortar” places where we can do that. Charity shops sell [...]

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 [...]
