Was thinking i really ought to put something on my website. I wonder if i could dig out any of the software i wrote for the acorn, all those years ago.

Could also post the bits and peices for my newsfeed type script, which allows easy embedding of RSS newsfeed things into pages served by apache. Would need to package it sensibly first. Ho hum. Macdonalds rocks, btw.

Update: Arrrgh. Bloody spammers. iDunno and I block yet another repetitive spammer from our mailserver. Did consider sending an email to the korean primary school who's mailserver they were using, but decided not to bother in the end. Can you believe btw, that korean schools manage to have their own internet connected mailservers, when the UK can't even manage to give all our schools a broadband connection. It's a sad, sad, state of affairs.

Currenly investingating the wonders of the XML-RPC interface, to Xindice, which seems fairly simple. Ish. Well, i have iDunno to help me out when i get stuck, which is someting of a bonus.

Anyway, that's enough for now
