Movable Type Upgrade

Finally upgraded to Movable Type 3.0D

So far I am pretty happy with it, it is definitely much leaner and meaner and the code on the main site is far cleaner.

The admin is a lot more organised with a few improvements made on usability.

All round thumbs up methinx.

Now to try and get the page w3c validated πŸ™‚


Updates Galore

Well after the great battle of the garage door and the electric garage opener thing, I decided to sit down and update some of the stuff on my site.

The gallery has now been updated to Gallery v1.4.3-RC2 and its dependencies have been updated too, I don’t really like the black style for gallery but hell it will do for now (updated the blog theme to match it but There is still more work to be done)

All in all a pretty productive half hour πŸ™‚

Ah and for all the people who have asked about my evaluation, it went very well and you will all be happy to know that I will be staying on as a full time software developer at Dark Blue Sea (it was not as short lived as I expected, hurrah!)

I’m the lead singer of my band, I get all the girl’s to take off their underpants……MY SALSA


On yet another side note

After being spidered twice by the almighty google bot over the weekend it appears that is now happily sitting at position number three for the keyterm houmam πŸ™‚


Search Engine Ranking

After several weeks of annoyance with Google dropping from its listings for no apparent reason, I am happy to report that is now number 1 on Yahoo.

I noticed the Yahoo bot spidered my page a few days ago and waited a few days for the listings to update,voila today I was number 1 on the search term houmam.

At least one search engine is working the way it should πŸ™‚

Where else can you get your required dosage of Houmam????

Take that Google πŸ˜›

You just have to live with what I have πŸ˜›


New Blog Added To Blog Roll

Please welcome Amita’s Blog to my fine Blog Roll.

If you would care to check out you might learn something you never knew before or just be amused by the rants and ravings of a mad woman.

Because of my high google ranking (now at position 3, boy can I taste that number 1 position) I thought I would share the love and link her up to send her some affordable and highly targeted traffic (oh oh work persona is taking over, must resist)

I can smell colors.

Hi all,
