I haven't ended up with much in my notes this week...

It was another week of scheduling in advance and largely sticking to it. :-)

With some assorted PaTMa development, including work on some customer requested features - hopefully going live next week.

The monthly Brighton Product Meet also took place, including some excellent discussions around Twitter marketing and ...

SharePoint

I spent far too many hours getting better acquanted with SharePoint than I ever wanted to be.

How anyone has ever, never mind still, uses it I really don't know. Apparently it's entirely possible, even quite common (based on the number of web pages about it), to end up with a "folder" that actually has ...

Well, that didn't entirely go according to plan!

I haven't published a journal article for four weeks. Simply because other things have had to take priority.

That shift in priorities started on the 12th November when a major server used by my web and email hosting company started to spew errors from both of it's ...

It's been a cold and drizzly day at the end of a rather cold and rainy week; so here's a bright and sunny flower to provide a bit of cheer.

Choosing a live chat application

I want to add a line chart option to PaTMa, both for enquiries and pre sales questions as well as support for subscribers.

But it seems there are a lot of live chat options out there at the moment. So, as much as a record for myself as anything, I thought I'd document the ones I've considered and ...

Gaming time

Over a month ago I decided to make some changes that were intended to reduce the amount of time I waste on time-demanding (and perhaps not so enjoyable) games. This week I took a few minutes to see how I've been getting on.

The time I spent playing games (I think this is all time-sucking ...

Having rather overdone flowers from our visit to Sheringham in the summer, this week I'm sneaking in some Sheringham trees just to finish the collection (there might also be one or two more distant flowers too).

All taken in June 2018.

Oops!

I got so late with posting my journal last week, and still didn't find time to edit and publish it later in the week, that I decided to roll it over to this week. I've decided to just edit everything together so this post covers the last two weeks.

Co-working

I ran another free co-working ...

All Secure Domains

Having been working on lots of behind the scenes things like server upgrades and migrations over the last few weeks and months for All Secure Domains, this week I started rolling out DKIM signing of outbound email. This is currently only for customers who host DNS and email with ASD - the DNS records are automatically ...

House repairs

It's only taken us ten years of living here but we've finally had a panel in our kitchen moved over by 1cm so we can actually fit our washing machine fully under the counter. A day for celebration!

Micropreneurs social

Another first-Thursday rolled past this week and hence so did another Redhill Micropreneurs social ...
