As I write this, it is about five hours and 22 minutes since I gave my business partner the scare of his life.
Well maybe not the scare of his entire life, but certainly of the professional life we have ventured on together.
It was shortly after 3am this morning and I was sitting down to record a voice-over commentary for my first ever unboxing video which we had shot the previous day. [click to continue…]
Two things happened to me at about the same time over the weekend.
First of all I spent a little time in the CTP chatroom and then I read this blog post from Jon Olson.
Jon’s blog post – When Someone Gets It You’ve Got To Share It – focused on Nick Grimshawe, a regular member of the TELive community who is setting out on a novel method to promote CTP. [click to continue…]
About a month ago I wrote about a spammer who goofed by posting their entire spam swipe file in one incomprehensible badly spun comment.
Now it has happened again.
This time I had 1,084 words of spammy goodness to wade through.
Here are some of my favorite phrases from this latest offering:
Things start off a little odd…
- I’m a lengthy time watcher and I just considered I’d drop by and say hello there for your really 1st time.
- I critically enjoy your posts. You will be my function models. Thank you for beneficial guidelines and basically excellent information.
- hey buddy, this is a very fascinating post. Study it, liked it, many thanks for it. [click to continue…]
Yesterday I did something that I do from time to time…I deleted subscribers from my list.
My reasoning is this, we all sign up for stuff and then after a while we find that the information we once requested is no longer a priority in our lives.

I sent a quick message from my auto-responder to this effect and then trimmed my list on the basis set out above. [click to continue…]
I used to have a regular Monday slot on this blog where I would moan and complain about things which annoyed me.
I still do this from time to time but not as often as I used to. So today, instead, I thought I would go for amusing rather than annoying.
The other day I was in an office for a business meeting, yes I am all grown up and go to the odd business meeting from time to time.
During the meeting I overheard part of a conversation with a customer who was explaining why his payment was going to be late. [click to continue…]
I have recently had rather a hard time writing.
It happened when I agreed to do some writing work for a client the other week.
I was given a series of short articles to write on the subject of golf.
Now this is the problem…I hate golf. It does not interest me in the slightest.
The net effect of this is that a series of articles which should have taken me less than a couple of hours to write actually dragged on for days and days. [click to continue…]
