My last post at this domain

This site is now no longer being updated. It will remain here as part of the wonderful history of the internet as there are a few links that will resolve here and will remain here. New non-technical blogging will now be athttp://nigeljam.es and all new posts will happen there.

Other technical blogging can be found on SCN or at my company SquareCloud

Google has now completed the assimilation of Feedburner and so you can get my feed for the new domain at http://feeds2.feedburner.com/GettingTechnical . If my subscribers got every post reposted to this feed as I changed the domain over, please accept my apologies. I will be doing a little webhousework at both domains in the next day or so so if you have something to add or a suggestion or just want to say ‘hi’ then my contact details are here.

Thanks for reading,

Nigel

(Oh and I know it nigeljam.es not quite as short as http://ma.tt/ but I think my new virtual home is pretty cool)

Be part of the solution

It really doesn’t take much to change the world and today as part of blog action day I am going to challenge you to do something that will help someone out of poverty and maintain it.

Maybe you are already doing something to make poverty history. Fantastic – keep it up.

If you are reading this post you have the resources to make a difference in someone’s life.

I am not going to prescribe that you support the organisations that I support but I have found that Compassion is a champion of those in poverty and works well with children, their families and the whole community to bring change in a region.

Having supported and sponsored kids over several years it is evident to me that they do excellent work at getting families out of poverty by supporting education and health of kids and supporting whole regions where they operate.

So on this blog action day focussed on poverty give a thought to making a difference in a childs life. It really will make a difference. You can’t do everything, but you can do something.

An SLA

I was mildly amused to see that open source analyst James Governor has put an SLA on his blogging activity.

In retrospect it is not such a bad thing. So here goes mine:

I will write at least one post a month on anything that mildly relates to SAP, PHP, Eclipse, Usability, Web Applications, HR, CRM, Cycling, Cricket or anything else under the banner of Life the Universe and Everything.

I am also over on twitter.

Thinking about Life, The Universe and Everything – this week is week 42 of the year.

Have a great 08 day

This moment was just ripe with opportunity and I didn’t want to miss it.

This post has been published at 08/08/08 08:08:08.

Enjoy the moment.

(Also enjoy the Olympics and enjoy the fact that PHP4 is no longer being supported – upgrade to 5!)

The Immortal Hamburger

This is not software related but if you have been following my twitters for a while (but not so much since October) then you know that I like to keep fit.

I challenge you to eat McDonalds again after watching this.
