Things to do when twitter fails

As we all know twitter has been up and down more times than a strippers panties in the last 24 hours, so what should you be doing instead.

When I was younger, a long long time ago, the BBC would always show a children's television programme in the school holidays called "Why Don't You Just Switch Off Your Television Set And Go Out And Do Something Less Boring Instead?" and it got me thinking of things I could be doing instead of waiting for tweets to arrive.

(I'm suprised to find out that the show ran for 42 series between 20 August 1973 and 21 April 1995 and that Russel T Davies of Doctor Who fame was a one time producer/director)


I live in Yorkshire or "God's own country", as we call it in the North of England and we do things differently here "oop north".

Good bye joomla 1.0 you've been a good friend over the years but sadly now it's time to say farewell

After over 1 million downloads of the very final release of the Joomla 1.0 it has now reached it's end of life.

There will be no further updates or security releases fro this Tuesday but what does that mean for sites that are still running Joomla 1.0?

In reality I suspect very little.

The web was meant to be read, not squished.
This isn't the way to test a responsive design.
