I’ve decided to disable my ajaxblog addon, as I like to use google analytics to track what type of content is popular so that I can concentrate more on that kind of content in the future. Now, I have added google analytics code into ajaxblog but it seems that I’ve either mis-implemented it, or I don’t know how to read the results at google-analytics.com. (Either could be true, and both equally likely.
Aptana Studio is a pretty darned impressive IDE for web-related development. I use it almost exclusively. The installation instructions on the download page make reference to 64bit users having to utilise the eclipse plugin version rather than standalone. The problems occur when you install Eclipse from the Ubuntu apt repositories. When you install Eclipse, via apt, the package “eclipse-gcj” gets installed which also pulls in the gcj runtime. This seems innocuous in itself, but the eclipse startup script checks for existence of various java runtimes to determine which it will use.
Ooh, Ahh, Just a little bit. Ooh, Aah, A little bit more! Gina-G So I wanted that little bit more eye-candy on my site. To fix this, I made a very minor tweak to my CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) code – CSS is what changes web page code into something visually appealing.

The government will, from the 6th of april, be monitoring every email and possibly instant message and chat communication by uk residents. Let me reiterate that, every email and telephone number you send and receive is now monitored. The EU passed a directive recently which required all member states to do this.
I came across this video and just had to share it with someone, but I had more to say than would fit into Facebook or Twitter (and who uses Google+?!) https://www.youtube.com/embed/iNDD4d87K_8 I love that he is so excited that he can barely speak. It’s absolutely great that someone from one of the older generations (read: alive before the 1990’s) can get into and find uses for technology that kids take for granted.
This year in the Formula1 world looks set to be a very controversial one from the outset. Three teams have thus-far come under criticism for flouting the new rules which are designed to limit downforce. Toyota, Williams and Brawn GP have all designed their cars in a clever fashion to increase the downforce generated by the underside of the car. It all revolves around the “diffuser”, which is a piece of bodywork which fits underneath the gearbox behind the rear-axel-line.
