Mr Zurkon is now on Wizzley. (http://www.wizzley.co.uk/Mr-ZurkonCourtney Gears and Krull have been moved but not published as I need to add more content.The aircraft lenses will take longer, as I need to work out how to get the cutaways onto Wizzley as they are on Amazon.co.uk, and Hubpages has screwed up the formatting dramatically and […]

Hubpages – one week and I am furious

| September 25, 2014

Well, I’ve just got notice from hubpages that “Your hubs have got 1,000 visits. Can you even imagine that?”Well yes, I can, and you’ve got a way to go to catch up with the traffic I got on Squidoo. The big change is that on squidoo I didn’t have to imagine I was getting paid […]

Blogger Integration Pt 2

| September 21, 2014

And, oh my, it works.(Up until Google turn it off 30 mins later…)

Blogger Integration

| September 21, 2014

I may have a way to stream content to blogspot without using that dreadful API (giving google eternal licence to syndicate my content without attribution) or insecure emails. It may actually save this blog, which to my surprise is still getting traffic.Well, I wrote this on RA blogs. Let’s see if it works…

Ads and common sense

| September 15, 2014

I saw this article today, even though its from last Tuesday: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/sep/09/blocking-adverts-napster-for-the-publishing-industryAdsense is like Napster, says the Guardian. Adsense is a necessary anti-malware tool, says I.Their main comparison is that people accept ads in print media and don’t find them annoying so why can’t they do the same online? Probably because it is an apples […]

Thoughts on the Scottish Referendum

I’m British. I’m half English, half Scottish. I’ve lived on both sides of the border, I’ve got immediate family on both sides of the border.In ten days, my nationality may change due to no action of mine. It is very frustrating to know that because I currently live in England I don’t have vote or […]

End of an era – blogspot

| September 5, 2014

Following Squidoo’s closure, I took a look at my other online properties. You might remember the original green blogspot blog that I started with – tirial.blogspot.com.I tried it again. I still find the new blogspot interface nearly unusable, and now google wants to link everything to the One account.  I’m not on Facebook, I’m not […]

Mozilla build their own backdoor?

| September 4, 2014

There is a huge security hole in Firefox 29 and above. It’s called the Mozilla Maintenance service.What this does is to allow Firefox for force updates onto your computer without telling you it is doing so. You will only find out it has done this when you restart Firefox.Even in Windows, you have to accept […]

A Follow-up to Squidoo’s closing.

| September 4, 2014

You will now find my articles on Wizzley at http://wizzley.com/authors/tirial/Sadly they won’t be going there immediately. They are being moved to hubpages temporarily under the name atirial. This is only happening because otherwise I have to sacrifice the royalties I have already earned on Squidoo. I am still angry over what happened in February, when […]
