Blogging by BlackBerry

Well if you’re reading this then I guess the changes I made have worked – and if you’re not then I’ve still got some work to do.

I’m en route to Alderley Edge for the next couple of days – driven part way tonight to avoid a 4am start in the morning. It meant heading off before Megan went to Brownies tonight but it will make life easier tomorrow.

The A6 went past 12,000 miles on the way down tonight, so I’ve certainly had plenty of opportunity to become acquainted with it since April (when it had just 50 on the clock). It’s a much better car than the V70 in just about every way (the iPod interface is great too – had to re-tag all the mp3 files properly to get the best out of it, but more of that another time). The only complaint is the seats, they’re just not as good as the Volvo ones (although I don’t think Angela agrees!)

The ride and handling are excellent and whilst the two litre diesel engine is a bit agricultural, its quick enough and manages nearly fifty to the gallon.

Sometimes there’s just too much going on…

Normally a lack of activity on here just means there’s just not been much to blog about, but this year it seems like it’s quite the opposite!

There’s been all sorts of stuff happening good and bad (as Angela’s last post showed) but there never seems to be any time to sit down and write about it. Whether its jetting off down under for two and half weeks, or rattling round the UK like an itinerant salesman (2100 miles this month and counting) I never seem to be in a position to blog about it.

So to that end I’ve been trying to make it easier for me to post updates – I’ve updated the site to WordPress 2.8.5 (the latest version) which has some significant improvements. Kudos to the developers on the upgrade too, it’s now just a matter of a couple of clicks on the site admin pages – not that they were that difficult in the first place.

I’ve also installed the latest version of the postie plugin on the site, that means I can now post straight to the site by email from the blackberry (or any other device!) wherever I happen to be.

Lets see if that makes a difference to the number of posts 🙂
