This should show up about 1600

This is a test page that should appear once the next hourly static site generation runs. Which means we will then have automatic publishing and updating working for this site at least... 😉 Random image: Here are some great tits 🙂 [image: GreatTits-P1300278.jpg]

We are Static!

As part of the process of migrating from the legacy hosted server, these WordPress sites that I look after are now static sites hosted from Amazon's S3 service. Thereby keeping the editable editions internal, and also the 'live' site 'unhackable' and really fast... New themes will arrive as soon as I work...

Why the snoopers charter is ultimately unworkable.

I'm going to suggest that there's one very obvious idea that this whole 'snoopers charter' has overlooked. "How will this affect secure business communications".

Galaxy Tab + dropbox + docs to go + keyboard = laptop replacement
